Going into Leader as Coach I was unsure of the benefits I’d gain given I’ve had a lot of experience managing teams and believe communication to be one of my strengths. I was amazed at the insights that surfaced as I was working through the program and came out the other side with a whole new way of approaching my interaction with others. Thanks, Sue for making learning feel as easy as having a good chat!

I got so much more out of this experience than I expected. This program took me to a much deeper level... It has been an absolute privilege to work with Sue ...she is extremely talented in her profession. The program has been of great benefit to me. I have increased awareness of how my approach can negatively impact others, I am much more engaged in collaborating and I can see that my relationships have improved already as a result

Thank you for facilitating such a powerful coaching session. I came out feeling empowered, confident, authentic, and dare I say, even strong. I confronted an issue that I haven't been brave enough to before. I dealt with challenges confidently and honestly.

Sue Montgomery came into our lives, and into our business, at just the right moment. Sue and the team are a wealth of knowledge and instantly made us feel at ease. With their help over the course of 12 months, we set and achieved goals that were once way beyond our comprehension and learned to live and work harmoniously. Coaching has been the best investment in our present and in our future - the best investment in our business.

Sue Montgomery is an incredibly natural coach. Her innate communication skills and deep interest in human potential are supported strongly by a depth of experience in personal, business and corporate levels. This powerful combination allows her to connect, challenge and support her clientele, on both a personal and professional basis, to achieve their desired outcomes.

I found Sue’s guidance particularly helpful from a work perspective. There were several difficult issues that had reached an impasse. Working with Sue gave me a number of useful techniques, self-awareness and courage that once implemented, drove a positive outcome, both for me and my employer. I would happily recommend her services to anyone.
IT Manager - Essential Energy
Sue has been working with me to build my confidence and assertiveness in the workplace. My role can be highly emotive and I have to deal with people from all walks of life. Sue challenged and supported me to step outside of my comfort zone and speak to people I work with that intimidated me. Using my new skills, I was able to actually build a positive relationship with them and gain their respect.

I just wanted to let you know that I have been invited to present at the 2013 Buunji National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education Conference - presenting in an area in which I would never have even considered prior to coaching. Many thanks for your wisdom and brilliant coaching techniques, there is no stopping me now!
R/Aboriginal Vocational Initiatives Consultant - Community Development & Aboriginal Engagement North Coast Institute - TAFE
Port Macquarie-Hastings Council engaged Sue in 2015 to provide one-on-one coaching to the 22 members of our Senior Leadership Team. Coaching has given people the confidence to speak openly and honestly to their teams and individuals about performance and a range of other issues in a non-threatening environment. But perhaps more than that, it has given leaders a taste of what being a real leader is all about. I would recommend Sue and Coaching Professionals to anyone who wants to learn how to achieve more for your business through others.
General Manager Port Macquarie-Hastings Council
I have found my coaching with Sue to be particularly valuable. Sue has helped me understand issues from different perspectives, challenged me on the areas I needed to address, and coached me to get the best results out of all sorts of scenarios.I also recently engaged Sue to conduct Leader as Coach training for my team. Sues authentic and sensible style has helped our team develop leadership skills that will empower them to grow as leaders. The ‘Leader as Coach’ training has been very successful for my team.
