Monica is based in Sydney and has over 18 years’ executive coaching experience working with senior executives predominantly in banking and finance, professional services, telecommunications and public service sectors. She collaborates with clients to increase individual self-awareness, communication and responsibility, improve the alignment of intellectual and emotional abilities, and unite the goals, aims, interests and values of the individual and the organisation.
Monica uses a strengths-based, solution-focused approach. She combines this with evidence-based research and practices from the fields of appreciative inquiry, positive psychology narrative coaching and mindfulness. Her collaborative pragmatic style allows clients to engage in reflective yet challenging coaching conversations. Clients report that these frequently lead to a transformational change in their self-awareness, sense of responsibility, leadership style and performance outcomes.
Prior to her executive coaching career, Monica worked in executive search, recruitment, outplacement and HR management in financial services. As a result, she developed a deep understanding of different organisational cultures and systems and how these impact staff at every level. Monica has post-graduate qualifications in counselling and psychology. She managed her own private psychology practice for many years; her background and experience in this area have given her a thorough understanding of the drivers of human behaviour. Monica runs supervision sessions for coaches either individually or in small groups. She supervises many of Australia’s top coaches bringing another layer of depth to her approach.
