EXECUTIVE COACHING AND FACILITATION TESTIMONIALS
Amy is an unassumingly powerful communicator. In one morning with her, we used imagination, bravery and trust. It helped our work team bond and grow. Amy handled this small group with care and encouragement, and also ran a session with our wider office with energy and patience. She created an environment which was fun and safe whilst being a challenge. I was a rewarding experience for everyone involved. Taryn Payne, Executive Relationship Manager, EBM RentCover
The facilitated role play for difficult conversations was an epiphany. I get it now. Felt safe and comfortable … The tips [Amy] gave us for difficult conversations were excellent … I see this benefiting me and those with whom I communicate … This was fun — a good change from some other communications workshops I have been to. Various comments from NSW Regional Health Services Managers, participants in a bespoke communications and leadership workshop
Amy is a fantastic leadership coach and I really valued my time working with her this year. To me the hallmark of a great coach is one who spends more time listening and is able to draw the insights from the participant — which Amy has an amazing ability to do. Amy is passionate about her work and is inspiring and motivational.
Amy’s key differentiation from other coaches is her ability to role-play and help dry run or play back situations. I would happily endorse or recommend Amy’s coaching services to anyone wanting to improve their managerial and leadership skills. I would highly recommend Amy to any manager or professional who wants to get the most out of their team and obtain valuable leadership skills. Anthony Lane, Senior Manager, Data Architecture Financial Crime Management at Westpac
I am a manager of a team that performs the very complicated task of fraud risk management at a major Bank. Having never had a career or leadership coach before, at first I was skeptical as to the value Amy could provide as I thought I knew everything I needed to take me and my team where I needed them to go. I was very pleasantly surprised though when she gave me various valuable skills and actions to take me forward and help me make not only my professional ambitions come true, but my personal ones as well.
I would highly recommend Amy to any manager or professional who wants to get the most out of their team and obtain valuable leadership skills. Luke Parr, Fraud Analyst, Westpac
PRIVATE COACHING TESTIMONIALS
I have known Amy Kersey since 2012 when she first started coaching me through some changes in my life. Amy’s warmth, authenticity, and humour made it easy to feel comfortable with her from the first session. Her creative, open, and curious mind was a perfect match for my left-brain approach to life and I quickly made a lot of long overdue changes that our very honest sessions allowed me to voice. She has a natural gift for coaching, as a well as the knowledge she’s gained from her studies in Coaching Psychology at the University of Sydney. I trust Amy completely, always enjoy our sessions, which are still a part of my life, and she invariably manages to help me work through difficult issues. I have found it a challenge to find the right coach to work with over the years, and have worked with many. I highly recommend Amy and am happy to provide a verbal reference if required. Katherine Hosie (MSc, Coaching Psychology), Executive Coach | Leadership Coach | Organizational Diagnosis | 11 years and 7,000+ hours coaching experience since 2003
Amy has been my coach for the last year and a half. It has been such a valuable period of time for me. Amy has the uncanny ability to be able to listen and hear what you are saying and to cut through the walls of blather that block so many of us from achieving our best. This she does whilst at the same time remaining utterly warm-hearted and genuine. I have been provided with methods and the training to enhance my life both professionally and personally, and I stand here today a more fully realised human being because of her. I cannot speak more highly of her than that. Katherine, private coaching client
Having known Amy for around twenty years, I recommend her without hesitation. She not only has the hard skills — her education and experience speak for themselves in that regard — she is full to bursting with soft skills including an instant friendliness, shrewd insight and her innate ability to lift one’s spirits with a few simple, well-chosen words.
I’ve worked with Amy as a script editor, an actor and now as a Life Coach, and in all of these areas she possesses a natural and superior talent.
I highly recommend her: she is quite simply one of a kind. Jared Laurie, Staffing and Recruiting Specialist
