Our services

What do you want to be?

At The House of Balance, we develop confident, capable and inspiring leaders who inspire positive cultural change, drive performance and improve employee engagement. We believe solid leadership is critical to your personal growth, your company’s bottom-line success, productivity, employee engagement, and retention.
leadership development coaching
To date, Michael and his passionate team of coaches have successfully coached C-level executives, senior managers, and high-potential performers. Our leadership coaching offers personalised guidance for achieving your individual career and personal goals.
As senior staff, it’s easy to put a lot of time into working on career and leadership development plans with your teams, only to find yourself too busy to focus on your own longer-term goals. At The House of Balance, we deliver sessions that offer a simple sounding board that provides you with the substantial tools and strategies to impact your career planning and give you the life balance you deserve.

We can help you or your leaders

Improve leadership skills and performance to increase impact and influence

Create a competitive advantage in leadership excellence

Successfully transition to a new company or role

Foster a greater commitment to accountability in order to help achieve results more quickly and communicate more effectively

What to be careful of when seeking leadership training

We believe the future of coaching is about the partnership between a leader and their team members. However, we find that coaching has become an overused and misused term to describe all types of interactions between a leader of people and their subordinates.
Although the business world has become more complex, the coach still needs to manage the process— which should be thought-provoking and creative for both parties—and the subordinate still needs to be accountable for actions and results. Being able to help someone recognise their own strengths and weaknesses and how they can improve requires the coach to be the facilitator, not the owner, of change.
Where coaching programmes fail:

Do not match assessments with goals

Show a lack of authentic feedback

Don’t have a designed path

Don’t ensure privacy

Ignore digital technology and tools

How we are structured

What we learnt over our coaching journey is that you can do many things to make your work and life more balanced and impactful.
Our leadership coaching includes telephone and email support between sessions and access to our additional free resources (reading material, balanced coaching, recommended reading etc). Sessions are offered in person, on the phone or as a combination of both. We are also available on-site or at your place of business. If you’re an individual who enjoys a cafe-style setting, we’re happy to oblige as well.

Who can benefit from leadership coaching?

Mid-level and senior professional or technical specialists

Fresh graduates entering the workforce

Managing directors and CEOs

Early-stage managers

Returning expatriates

How valuable is leadership coaching to your organisation?

Managers are not always good leaders, and leaders are not always good managers. There is a fine line between the two that a manager must find a balance, because to us, leadership is a multi-faceted, complicated term that encompasses many scenarios.
At The House of Balance, we believe that navigating organisational change requires the ability to develop and lead the human side of change and manage the operationalisation of structural and organisational change initiatives. We believe true leadership is determined by effective communication between leaders and their employees.
Expected results: Creating deeper, systemic change that can profoundly transform a leader’s perspective, performance and bottom-line results. We’ve coached many clients from C-suite executives, high potentials and leadership teams to small businesses and individuals.
Great leaders aren’t born, they’re coached by The House of Balance.

Manage stress and reach your goals through leadership coaching

Our leadership coaching processes develop great leaders. However, these processes require individuals to face perceived fears, accept critical feedback, and manage emotional highs & lows in alignment with universal laws for maximising personal and professional growth.
The House of Balance is a leadership organisation that works with current and emerging leaders to discover clarity, build confidence, remove limiting beliefs and create personal courage, giving them the capacity to become creative thinkers.

The skills needed for leadership have also changed—more complex and adaptive thinking
abilities are needed

Building your company — one leader at a time, one team at a time

Our leadership coaching has built personalised guidance programmes for achieving your individual career and personal goals. As high-performing leaders, it’s easy to invest so much time into working on career and leadership development plans with your teams, only to find yourself too busy to focus on your own long-term goals.
Our sessions offer a simple sounding board to provide you with the substantial tools and strategies to impact your career planning and give you the life balance you deserve.
Our breakdown of skills and expectations:

Ability to teach and mentor others

Adaptability to different learning and personality styles

Able to challenge teams to take ownership of their solutions

Identify talent that subordinates can’t see in themselves, and inspire them to bring it out

Be selfless and give credit where it’s due rather than taking full credit for team efforts

Able to turn negatives into positives by breaking through limiting beliefs

Passionate and loyal

How does it work?

Our leadership coaching focuses on what systemically drives performance and helps you achieve measurable results and sustainable change — not only for yourself, but also for your team and the entire organisation.
Coaching sessions include telephone and email support between sessions and access to additional free resources (reading material, balanced coaching, recommended reading etc).
Our measurable leadership coaching process helps leaders develop higher emotional intelligence, communicate with greater impact and influence, think more strategically, prioritise and delegate more effectively.
By breaking through personal barriers as well as limiting beliefs, leaders achieve their highest levels of performance, which has an exponential return on team culture and bottom-line results.
