What people say

Trish Daly Human Resources Adviser, Connectiv

It is my pleasure to enthusiastically recommend Jane Chilcott for her exceptional counselling / coaching skills. Jane has been an invaluable support to our team members, helping navigate through various professional and personal challenges. Her ability to create a safe and non-judgmental space enabling our team members to open up and share their concerns in an honest way. Jane’s unique style and exceptional communication skills are remarkable, she has an ability to bring our team members to understanding how an individual’s behaviour impacts not only their own lives but also the lives of those around them. I would not hesitate to recommend Jane with her unique coaching skills.

I am a current beneficiary of Franca’s coaching. I really enjoy each session but more importantly, I always come away with new insights and possibilities. Franca’s coaching is creating clarity in my thinking and a new sense of purpose, for which I’ll always be enormously grateful.

I’ve been catching up with Franca for several months and have found that every session is unique and focused on conversations that were so needed for that week. Most importantly, I’ve always finished each session with insightful suggestions of tools to help me move forward. After looking back, I can honestly see how much she has helped me discover truths and grow more in confidence. I highly recommend her sessions!

Gareth SpenceManager of Staffing and Human Resources, Scotch College

As an ontological coach Franca was able to develop my leadership style with a unique combination of looking both internally and externally to challenge my own perception of a situation and identify practical skills and strategies to communicate effectively. This combination has provided me with a more flexible approach to communication when working with my team and colleagues.

Franca’s unique style of coaching is personable, effective and most importantly deals with real life challenges in the workplace. It provides you with the skills and self-assurance to manage any situation confidently and effectively to ensure a positive outcome. This coaching is a must for anyone wishing to reflect on and enhance their leadership skills.”

“To date I have had two ontological coaching sessions with Franca, and I found them both profoundly useful. I found Franca a perfect mix of expert, compassionate and challenging and I got great results each time. I'm looking forward to working with her again soon.”

Jeremy MaherManager Sustainability and Environment, City of Bayswater

“Franca has worked with me over the last year in a coaching capacity. Franca has worked with me to gain a better understanding into my own behaviour and leadership style and helped me identify how I can better work with my team and colleagues to continue to improve my contribution to the organisations outcome. I would recommend the experience if you are looking for a deeper understanding of how what you can do to work with a range of people to become a more effective leader.”

    What’s been happening in Australia in relation to sexual harassment, discrimination, and bullying from 13 May -19 May 2024

    Dismissed for posting negative comments about management The Fair Work Commission (FWC) recently dealt with an unfair dismissal claim lodged by a worker against her employer, a hotel. She worked as a casual sales representative and bar supervisor.  The employer met with the employee to address performance issues such as sending herself on breaks during peak trade, closing the bar without approval, customer complaints, and not arriving to shifts on time. The worker also used social media platforms to vent her opinions about the management team even after being spoken to about what constituted appropriate social media usage.  The FWC addressed two issues – one was whether the worker could make an unfair dismissal claim given she was employed on a casual basis. The other was whether the employer had valid reasons […]

    Proactive or Reactive – Managing Unlawful Behaviour in Workplaces

    In today’s world, where workplace dynamics are under constant scrutiny, unlawful behaviour demands urgent attention because it is more prevalent than you might imagine.   A recent report released by Lloyd’s Register Foundation found that Australia has one of the highest rates of workplace violence and harassment in the world, with an average of 49.1% (compared to 21% globally). There is clearly much we all need to do to make workplaces in Australia safer.  The safety laws and the Respect at Work Act 2022 created significant changes to what constitutes unlawful behaviours and place greater responsibilities on employers.   While reactive measures have traditionally been the norm, there’s a compelling case to be made for proactive approaches in addressing these pervasive issues. This blog delves into why it’s essential to be proactive[…..]
