Change happens when circumstances converge…
- Our global crises demand fresh leadership…
- The outdated Strong Man model of leadership is inadequate for our complex world…
- More and more women are stepping into leadership
…and are willing to change the rules of the game
We work with women everywhere who are challenging the status quo and want to make their contribution – in their own unique way.
The way we’re working isn’t working. Conventional leadership thinking does not equip us to deal with ambiguity and uncertainty – we need to learn evolutionary approaches. To be fit for the future we need to be all of who we are: ambitious and collaborative, creative and courageous, confident and compassionate.
Women now recognise they can aim beyond surviving or thriving to lead change. At the same time low self-confidence, imposter syndrome and discomfort with power hold them back.
We work with both the light and the shadow – your purpose and your blocks – to help you become the leader you want to be.

ANIMA – co-vision groups
This group offers ongoing support and inspiration to women in leadership. A place to share ideas, challenges and tools and learn from each other. You’ll benefit from the encouragement of a group of amazing women who “have your back” plus expert coaching from Hetty and Liz – all at a fraction of the cost of 1-1 coaching.
Our work is rooted in depth psychotherapy and an understanding of workplace dynamics. We know the practical realities of business and believe we need to connect with the spirit and vision of leadership: why we lead and what for – especially in these fast moving and uncertain times.
Our approach includes powerful embodiment techniques to strengthen your gravitas combined with imagination, play, reflection, challenge and brave discussion to help you create the changes you want to bring about.
You will see profound change quickly. We recognise what it takes to survive in the current workplace and encourage you to expand beyond survival to thriving and “changing the rules of the game” – to create the kind of workplaces where everyone can flourish.
What will you gain
Get clear on your unique contribution to the world – build organisations that are purpose led and values driven
Understand ‘healthy power’ rooted within and learn to use it constructively – become a role model for others
Combine strength and warmth for authentic presence – so people can listen, hear and act on your words
Increase your capacity to bounce forwards from setbacks and flow around obstacles – build a culture where everyone can thrive
Know your worth to build grounded confidence deep within – stand tall and instil confidence in others
Understand the leader you wish to be and your impact – handle change and complexity better to empower others
