Laurenne Di Salvo
Why do I do what I do? Two key reasons: I care, and I love learning. I care deeply about people and I care deeply about the world. I demonstrate this through supporting people in their learning, development and growth. I believe this not only contributes to their own personal and professional development, but also has a positive flow on impact on their teams, direct reports, organisations, friends, family and society at large.
I am an accredited Coach (PCC), Corporate Trainer and Learning & Development Professional and I enjoy working with leaders at all levels, from self-leaders to the executive level from a range of industries, cultural backgrounds and geographic locations in Australia and globally. I work with people to determine what’s important for them, both in terms of results and importantly, in how they show up along the journey. This allows them to be deliberate, purposeful, and aligned with their values, regardless of their job role.
Fundamentally, I bring a very human approach to all that I do. When combined with formal qualifications, over 20 years’ practical corporate experience in Coaching, Learning and Development and Marketing, and broad life experience, this allows me to facilitate positive and sustainable learning, change and development.
My focus is on developing the personal and professional capabilities that people require for their current and future roles and lives. I help clients to develop their skills, capability, confidence and ability to navigate the relationships, organisations and environments they engage in, supporting them to thrive.
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 belief is that there is no ‘one size fits all’ in coaching. People come to coaching with unique strengths, values, needs and goals that we explore together. I provide individuals with a sounding board, tools and strategies, a safe space to explore ideas, to reflect and to gain insight, as well as accountability and an opportunity to co-create the plans, actions and mindset necessary to move forward.
I draw on a range of evidence-based coaching practices, from Positive Psychology, solution focused, narrative and behavioral approaches, as well as adult learning theory, to best support individual needs. I work from a strengths-based approach as I believe playing to your strengths allows for greater development, motivation, change and wellbeing. My approach is also guided by a strong sense of humanity and a 'conscious business' lens.
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. As such, I hold a Graduate Certificate in Coaching and Counselling (Deakin University), I'm an Accredited Organisaitonal Coach with the Institute of Executive Coaching and Leadership (IECL), I'm a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with the International Coach Federation (ICF) and a Chapter committee member of the Association for Coaching (AC).
