Kristyn has ten years of human resources management experience. For four of those years, she was a C-Suite Human Resources Executive of an international business. During that time, she completed a Master of Business by thesis about leadership development. Almost 20 years ago Kristyn left Human Resources to specialise in developing leaders. During that time, she has worked in almost every industry at all levels including with ASX200. Executives and Senior Government Leaders. In 2020 Kristyn was featured in the CEO Magazine for designing a leadership program to guide managers through the new ways of working that COVID-19 presented. That same year she was CEO Magazine’s International Women’s Day Keynote Speaker at the Park Hyatt Sydney where she spoke about the importance of gender balance on leadership teams.  In addition to being a Leadership Educator and Coach Kristyn is a published poet, and a local conservationist and runs a not-for-profit which supports women to grow in confidence and stand in their power.

Coaching Approach

Kristyn has supported thousands of leaders to navigate the tension between fear-based and purpose-led decision-making, connect them deeply with their values and gently guide leaders to lessen their reactions to stressful situations so they show up with courage, compassion, and authenticity. In 2019 Kristyn joined 100 academics from across the US to learn from Dr. Mary Gentile on her ground-breaking research, ‘Giving Voice to Values’. Importantly, Kristyn holds a gentle, non-judgemental space for you to let down your guard and simply be you. The many parts of your personality are welcome in the coaching room. It’s a place to simply ‘be’ and ‘grow’ if you choose to.
