Join our growing tribe of heart-centred leaders and high performing teams

Inner Circle Leadership Program

 Personalised 3-month Strengths-based Leadership Coaching Program for people who want to grow their leadership confidence.

You don’t need to be in a leadership role to join us. Leadership skills cut across all areas in life.

Arrangements available for government procurement purposes. Pro bono seats available to participants from the not-for-profit sector.

We don’t believe in cookie-cutter leadership

Are you tired of conforming to outdated leadership norms that demand a harsh and autocratic approach? Do you feel a deep intuition telling you that there’s another way to lead, one that taps into a kinder, more human-based approach?

In a world that has long celebrated masculine leadership traits, many incredible humans like you have sensed a misalignment. Your intuition is right; there is a better way to lead.

Welcome to a new era of leadership.

Nobody reports to exactly the same person, faces exactly the same challenges as you, has your personality or shared the experiences that make up your unique leadership DNA.

Step away from the autocratic model and embrace a leadership style rooted in authenticity. Your true self is your greatest asset.

We follow a holistic, human-centred approach to leadership to support professionals and teams who are serious about taking control of their lives, find purpose, experience growth, love their work-life and accelerate their performance.

Come and put up your feet in a safe, exclusive space.

Break through the barriers that other leadership and team programs have failed to do in the past, and learn how to confidently lead towards high performance, YOUR way.

Sometimes it feels like we just have to work a few more nights, put work in front of our family and health one more time, just dig that little bit deeper, gather enough energy and that breakthrough will come.

And before you know it, years have gone by.

Do you feel out of depth and frustrated because your team is not performing to the right standards and delivering the results you are after, despite investing in leadership programs?

Sitting confidently at the leadership table doesn’t always come naturally. Many who have gone before you have sat there doubting themselves, thinking they aren’t cut out for this leadership thing after all.

Meet your coach

“Kind human, I have walked in your shoes. I was rapidly promoted through leadership roles, always being elevated to the next step but never feeling that I was good enough”.

 Blyde Neser is an accomplished Human Capital Consultant and ICF Accredited Executive and Team Coach, and the driving force behind Professional Coaching Solutions, a collective of highly experienced and qualified thought leaders, consultants, coaches, and other skilled practitioners who have joined forces to multiply social impact.

With a focus on human-centric leadership development, workplace wellness, mental resilience, strategic talent and change management, and the empowerment of process automation, Professional Coaching Solutions collaborates with visionary leaders, cultivating thriving teams and enhancing organisational performance.

Their approach is evidence-based, comprehensive and holistic, creating synergistic solutions to reduce bullying, harassment, discrimination, poor leadership, conflict, and other team dysfunctions, improve mental wellbeing, engagement, and productivity and – ultimately – amplify stakeholder impact.

“I broke the glass ceiling as the first female to be promoted to a head of department at the Financial Services Board, but I sat at that boardroom table feeling completely out of my depth, terrified of being judged because I was one of the youngest on the leadership team, the only woman, and also the only one in the room who was neither a Chartered Accountant nor an actuary. It literally broke my heart leaving my 3-month-old baby at daycare, but I went back to work, because I had to “man up” and there was “important business to attend to”. I was terrified that I am going to be seen as a failure in my professional role and jeopardise my career. I wish I could travel back in time to prevent my younger self from burning out and creating an incurable autoimmune disease. But I can’t. What I CAN do , is to help others to avoid the mistakes I made”.

“Blyde, before working with you I felt like a failure. My team wasn’t working well together, nobody was meeting deadlines and everything was just too hard. I worked longer and longer hours, thinking it will help if I just get a few projects over the line. You helped me uncover what prevented me from leading my team from my heart, in a way that felt comfortable to ME and aligned with my natural flow. My team has started working together in a way that is bringing out the best in them. I feel much more comfortable at executive meetings now, no longer out of my depth and afraid of being judged.”
