It was great to meet you last night. My very first Meet Up event I have ever attended and I was really inspired!
I really want to make my art business work.
Last night was my first attendance at Lee Stemm’s meet up group, although she is my business coach. She is amazing and helps me drill down to my issues/goals/needs and will work with me where I am but ‘push’ me to do what is not comfortable… and hey, that’s where the magic happens. Because of Lee, I am heading in a direction that I never saw me heading, which is a good thing! I am very excited for my business’ future. Last night was fantastic, she resonated with so many in attendance! Thank you Lee Stemm
I have been working with Lee as my business coach now for a few months. Being a startup business, I started with nothing and was looking for direction, clarity and confidence. I now am able to work more effectively and to think completely differently how I manage and implement my activities. She is always willing to sit with me and help me through the next phrase of growing my business. I also have access to her E-Learning marketing system provides education and the exploration of new ideas. Of thinking outside the box. I would really recommend Lee to any business owner who is wanting to grow their business quickly.
I have achieved the following from Lee’s Coaching
1. Realising that I can’t change the way other people feel about me. I can only control my interactions, behaviours towards them and the ways I react to their behaviours.
2. Being the person I want to be rather than the person I think everyone around me wants.
3. Take more risks. You have to go through some discomfort to reap the best rewards.
4. Have achieved all of my business targets and exceeded some. Also received much acclaim and respect from my boss and other superiors within the company.
5. Also received an award from my company (as nominated by staff and other managers) for Integrity.
” Lee designed and facilitated a course to assist candidates at Sarina Russo Job Access. It uncovered any barriers or issues that may be holding them back from employment. 56 Candidates undertook the course. The results were as follows:
27 have now found employment, 1 has gone into NEIS Program, 4 have gone into PSP (Personal Support Program- more intensive program for Highly Disadvantaged Jobseekers), 1 person removed themselves from Center link Assistance
Lee was extremely professional in her approach and spent a great deal of time supplying the case managers with tips, feedback and strategies to work with difficult candidates.”
“I have gained the following results from coaching with Lee
1. Created a vision and purpose for myself
2. More Focused toward the development of my team members
3. Team have become more and more empowered to take on things that only I ever used to do. This has cut down on my having to take work home on the weekend.
4. My bosses have acknowledged that I definitely am a stronger personal and really do stand up for myself
5. I will be commencing my CPA Public Practice certificate study this coming July”
“Coaching with Lee has been a huge learning curve for me. I was confident in my skills and my passion for what I wanted to do, but had no idea of how to start in a professional way. Lee has been invaluable in showing me each step along the way. She has helped me implement the foundations of what I know will be an exciting and successful business. She keeps me on track and accountable which is not always comfortable at the time, but without her guidance I would be nowhere. She is calm and focused and an incredible person with a wealth of knowledge gained through her own experience. She is very real and down to earth and totally supportive at all times.”
“When I started coaching the territory that I manage was below budget by 10%. It is now above budget and will exceed budget by 20% in December. I have also seen other team members develop through coaching and move on to higher positions within the company”
“I found the tools that Lee used were extremely effective. She used NLP acceralated human behavioural change and after four sessions I was able to accept my new role as a Leader within my professional role which also enhanced my relationships within my personal life”
“The main benefit that I feel that has come from my coaching are from the comments made from my colleagues and the changes they see in my management style. Additionally, I feel that previously to my coaching I was unclear when communicating the type of leader, I wanted to be. Lee has assisted me with this and I am crystal clear on the type of leader I want to be which is directly aligned to my values and the company’s values.“
“Lee Stemm was my Professional Coach in 2010 when I was based in Brisbane. I voluntarily sought Lee out as a Coach after witnessing her success with one of my direct reports, and the subsequent success of several other leaders reporting to me when I contracted Lee to the hotels Leadership Coaching program.
As a coach, Lees program was in-depth and had an easy to follow framework, that drew out root causes of issues that were managed through the program, such that my overall leadership performance excelled. She applied her expertise in NLP (Neurolinguistics programming), and she was able to help develop, with the ownership of the coachee, behavioural changes that created long term improvements in leadership skills. I would recommend Lee as a Professional Coach. Her involvement in our business and in my own development was and still remains, invaluable.
I was having issues with some team members and I called in Lee to assist us in handling the team conflict. Lee was able to get the members involved to work more effectively together by developing the company values and running team training and coaching. She also worked directly with myself and my business partner Katie Eckford around our business goals and our leadership direction.
I completed Lee’s leadership mastery program and found it very helpful. The program consisted of monthly workshops with follow up phone coaching for myself and other leaders within our company. It assisted me in my work performance and the why that I approached my role. I would highly recommend Lee’s program to others
“If you are a biz owner and want to increase your sales and profits then the E-Learning course is for you. Since engaging with Coach Lee and implementing the E-learning challenge l have in less than 30 days gained so much clarity, confidence, and direction for my Virtual business. While my business is moving forward l can say that working with Coach Lee has opened my eyes to the gaps l had in my marketing strategies”
High Performance Coaching has helped me grow my business. She has been encouraging and has given me ideas to increase my customer base. She has many strategies for any type of business. I highly recommend High Performance Coaching.
The three biggest takeaways that I gained from the action planning workshop are: Don’t get perfect, get started – take action
Plan, track and measure everything – Know the 80/20 rule and Other low entry points into my sales funnel.Having access to the E-Learning Centre prior to the workshop gave me a good understanding of the marketing fundamentals and also how to develop an effective elevator pitch
I have been working with Lee as my Leadership and Business Coach over the last few weeks. It has supported me to step into my leadership role as a manager of a small team and to be more confident working with my team.
