ABOUT THE BOOK
Being a leader can be incredibly rewarding.
It can also be tough and bewildering.
If you sometimes feel a little overwhelmed with the ever-increasing demands of leadership, or if you’re confused about what great leadership looks like (or how to cultivate it) you’re not alone. Many leadership theories and practices developed in the last fifty years are now outdated. They no longer suit the world in which we lead.
Technology (in particular social media), increased global connectedness, the growing volatility and complexity organisations are experiencing - not to mention the sheer pace of change - means leadership is more challenging than ever before.
But, here’s the good news... Effective leadership has the power to have more of a positive impact, on more people around the world, than ever before in history. This eBook outlines the 8 cornerstones of great leadership and provides you with simple, practical tips and tools you can start implementing - right now - to improve your leadership.

Suzi took the time to understand us and our business philosophy, our values and our people before she went to work on helping us become better leaders and a better team. Suzi has the ability to engage at many levels within the organisation and we have utilised her unique skillset and expertise with myself, my fellow 3 suite partners, members of our Senior Management team and together as Senior team.
CEO / Managing Director, Gibbons Holdings Ltd
Our workshops with Suzi provided the team valuable insights around key differences in communication styles which, now understood, have led to better relationships, collaboration and productivity. Suzi, did a great job bringing this model to life with personal examples, and providing actionable learnings in a way that inspired and encouraged instant application. And we all had a lot of fun in the process!

Suzi has helped me get a whole new perspective on how I operate. Practical when I need it, reflective when it's good for me, and always supportive, I really enjoy working with Suzi.

Weta Workshop has worked with Suzi over the past 5 years in a variety of leadership development activities. She provides individual coaching for a number of our senior and upcoming leaders. She has also been key to the development and facilitation of leadership workshops and seminars for our senior crew. We have seen demonstrable results from the crew she has interacted with directly, and also from the workshops she’s run with us.

I have had the good fortune of working with Suzi over the past 12 months. Her ability to coach me through many aspects ofleadership has been invaluable to me, my team and board.
Board Member at i-SITE NZ, CEO NRDA
We have been working with Suzi for a number of years for individual coaching as well as ongoing coaching and facilitation for our Executive Leadership team and most recently for the creation and delivery of an Emerging Leaders Programme over the last couple of year. Suzi has picked up very quickly how our company ticks and this has really helped with the level of comfort that our Crew feel when in her presence.
HR Manager at Weta Workshop Ltd
I find my regular catch-ups with Suzi hugely beneficial. I constantly have too much on my plate resulting in feelings of being overwhelmed and out of control. Suzi is a breath of fresh air, and has the ability to ask questions that cut through any confusion, getting me back on track and arming me with tools to take on the next challenge! I thoroughly recommend her as a mentor/coach to dramatically increase the effectiveness of any busy executive or person.
Managing Director, Overland Footwear Ltd
I have worked with Suzi throughout my tenure as CEO of the Chiefs Rugby Club. I find her sessions incredibly useful on both a practical and philosophical level. I find I have a much broader tool box of techniques and strategies to apply to the often difficult task of leading & empowering people. I am comfortable touching base with Suzi at any time on a challenging issue and I invariably finish the discussion with real clarity on the solution or next step. Suzi has convinced me that every high performing CEO should engage the services of an Executive Coach.
