Laurenne Di Salvo
After working in Learning and Development for many years, I wanted to take my passion for personal and professional development further. This led me into coaching in a more formal capacity. What I love about coaching is that it empowers you to discover your own motivations, values, strengths and solutions. This makes learning sustainable, with strategies you can use for life.
As an accredited Executive, Leadership & Professional Development Coach, Facilitator and Consultant, I have extensive experience working with individuals and groups both locally and globally to enable the personal and professional capabilities required for their current and future roles and lives. I do this through evidenced based coaching practices and learning programs built on adult learning principles.
To be effective, the coach-client relationship needs to be based on a foundation of strong rapport and trust. It's for this reason that qualifications alone don't make a good coach. However, when combined with life experience, they are important in ensuring your coach has some evidence based tools and techniques to draw on to help guide your coaching journey.
With a combination of formal training, over 20 years’ experience in learning and development, coaching and marketing, as well as broad life experience, I am well placed to facilitate positive and sustainable learning, change and development. I have completed a Graduate Certificate of Coaching and Counselling and accreditation in Organisational Coaching. In addition, I am a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with the International Coach Federation (ICF) and a member of the Association for Coaching (AC).
My experience has been gained through working with leaders at all levels, from self-leaders to the executive level from a range of industries, cultural backgrounds and geographic locations, both in Australia and globally.
A common theme for many clients is the development of the capabilities required to lead themselves and their teams through change, ambiguity and complexity, as well as to support their ongoing personal and professional development. My experience has provided me with the ability to navigate changing environments and to effectively communicate with people from many walks of life, as well as supporting cross-cultural awareness and developing business acumen.
My focus is on working with clients to support their individual needs, empowering them to explore their motivations, values, strengths and solutions, making their learning sustainable, with tools and strategies that can be used to achieve lasting change and development. My training, facilitation and consulting focus is professional development. I regularly deliver a broad range of professional development training to diverse groups of participants.
Coaching is at the core of what I do, be this in one-on-one coaching sessions, in group coaching and training, or in the design, development and delivery of learning programs and workshops.
My approach is one of empowerment, supporting and guiding you to discover your own solutions and to implement the plans, actions, learning and mindset necessary to achieve your goals. I can provide a sounding board, an alternative perspective and accountability, as well as feedback and support. This can help you to make choices from a place of greater self-awareness and understanding, and can support your growth, learning and personal and professional development.
Using a client-centred approach, I draw on a number of evidence-based coaching approaches and adult learning theory to best support your needs. These include Positive Psychology, Solution Focused Coaching, Cognitive Behavioural Coaching, Motivational Interviewing and Narrative frameworks.
As your coach, my focus is to support you to thrive.
Let me support you to grow, to achieve your goals and to be your best you
