2. Occurs at the intersection of ability and capacity.
I am a capability coach. I help you align, curate, and create capability by recontracting expectations of what’s possible.
We humans have very clever brains—but our conscious brain is often lazy. Much of what we say, do and achieve is driven by the unconscious expectations and patterns we set with ourselves and the people around us.
My PhD investigated these expectations and their impact on decisions and behaviour at work. Combining this research with a decade of practical experience in leadership and talent advisory, I offer a unique approach to people wanting to Move Forward, Fly Higher, and Future-Proof their Capability.
FOR PEOPLE IN SEARCH OF PROGRESS
We’re more capable than we typically let ourselves be. The distraction and overwhelm of a busy world means it’s easier to find something that works and put it on repeat, than to ask what might be done differently for a different outcome. We stall, slow-down, and stop before we even realise we’re no longer moving. We may get lots done, but can fail to arrive anywhere meaningful.
The solution: curate your capability. Rebalance skills and refocus resources for where you’re going, not where you’ve been.
FOR PEOPLE IN SEARCH OF LEGACY
Contracting capability is your short-cut to healthy, high performance. We live and work in social systems. We might deliver good performance as individuals, but great performance requires aligning the capability of people around us. Without this, we reinforce silos and status-quo, and sacrifice credibility and connection. Our time is given to detail and drama instead of lifting ourselves and others up.
The solution: leverage your capability. Use everything around you and plan not for where you need to go, but for what you want to leave behind.
FOR PEOPLE IN SEARCH OF SUSTAINABILITY
Capability design keeps you out front, by getting and keeping the right skills in your business. When you’re not in control of your capability narrative, chaos ensues. People get confused and work on the wrong things, get distracted and fail to develop necessary skills, or become uncertain and leave. Meanwhile, your leadership time is consumed managing all the noise getting the way of people doing great work!
The solution: future-proof your capability. Design an organisation that’s ready for what’s next—not just for what’s now.
