My personal story

As the parent of a now thriving young adult with a disability, our family of four certainly experienced first-hand the effects that bias, stigma and exclusion can have on a teenager, his education and employment

Whilst progressing my career as an Executive and Parent Coach, I was also learning how to stand in the shoes of my son on a daily basis.

I became more flexible at seeing the world through his eyes, listening and appreciating the power of cognitive and personality diversity.

Combining these personal insights, adding NLP and the Enneagram to my professional tool kit, had a profoundly positive impact on my Coaching career and personal life.

Today our whole family are committed to valuing diversity and reducing inequality. My son Fred and I provide talks about growing up in Australia with an “Invisibility” (his cool word).

My daughter Zoe is a final year Psychology undergraduate and a Care Worker for adolescents who’ve experienced trauma.

My husband Jack and I run “Human Leadership” a training and Coaching business creating inspiring leaders, engaged teams and an inclusive culture.

“My mission is to inspire people to connect better so that we can unleash the innate talent of every single individual at work, in our families and our communities”

What Jacqui's clients love about her

and why she is a sought after leader in human connection

I cannot thank Jacqui enough for her unwavering support, thoughtfulness, expert insights and warmth.  I was initially a little skeptical about the effectiveness of remote phone coaching (with no face-to-face interaction) but it proved to be a forum that allowed me to really get the most out of the program and explore some more personal aspects of my role within the organisation…and even my life more generally.  

Corporate Executive

Wonderful program with useful concepts and practical suggestions to becoming a parent who can better support their kids through life. Thank you Jacqui looking forward to the next program.

Elisa - mother of three children 12, 16, 18

You are engaging and inspiring. You actively model what you say. The group showed a lot of trust in you and each other.

Jacqui was passionate, she fostered a supportive and comforting environment. One of the best presenters I have ever seen.

Jacqui – a most engaging day thank you. Learning was fun which can be rare in many one day workshops.

Workshop Attendees

Thank you so much for a thought-provoking day. I thoroughly enjoyed it and feel excited that I have more resources to draw on to engage in a more positive and meaningful way with our kids.

Ann Marie - mother of two children 14, 17

Jacqui was an extraordinary listener and had a keen ability to distil my often long-winded responses down to a single succinct and often very poetic key message, theme or learning for me.  This was very valuable and something I responded well to as the coaching progressed.  In summary, the coaching sessions were enormously beneficial, challenging and thoroughly enjoyable – thank you Jacqui!

Parent of teen

This workshop had a strong positive resonance and impact on the specialist teachers and achieved its purpose. It was very well facilitated with great skill and dexterity shown by Jacqui. There are a lot of almost off the cuff decisions a facilitator needs to make and Jacqui’s experience really came through.
