Take the Invisible to Influential Journey

Is this You? 

  • You know you have value to add, but aren't sure how to increase your influence


  • You're feeling unheard and unseen, despite your best efforts to be noticed. 


  • You're finding the leadership development is non-existent or there is no support to help you implement the changes you want to make


  • You're hungry to create a great workplace - one where everyone loves to come to work and goes home feeling fulfilled. 


  • Maybe you're like one woman who shared with me: " I want to be seen as someone capable of managing and not looked over"


  • And another shared her biggest challenge was: "Being in Middle management - trying to improve and break through the 'ceiling' to the next level"


Can you relate?


Most women come to me and ask to increase their confidence, their authority and their influence. Because they know, when they DON'T do these things, they remain stuck, feeling unheard and undervalued. They remain invisible inside their organisation, to their manager, their peers, and in some cases their team. 

And if you remain invisible, you'll NEVER be able to make the impact you want to make, or be seen as an influential leader.



Take The Invisible To Influential Journey

There are three pillars you need to work on for you to go from Invisible to Influential in your workplace.


When you develop these 3 areas, you'll find: 

  • You are asked for your opinion
  • Your ideas are implemented
  • Your team view you as an inspirational leader
  • You can easily develop strong networks and relationships
  • You get asked to be involved in projects
  • Your confidence increases
  • Promotions and opportunities will be easy to find

So What is an Inspired Leader...

 An Inspired Leader is someone who:


  • cares about their people
  • wants to make an impact on the people around them
  • wants to leave our workplace better than when we found it. 
  • creates an environment where people are heard, valued and go home fulfilled


 Because when we are able to fill our workplaces with these types of leaders, the ripple effect out to our families and society is bigger than we could ever imagine. And life is too short to keep putting up with workplaces that don't put people first. Life is too short to keep going somewhere that doesn't fulfil us. We don't get  these days back. 


So why on earth do we  keep accepting this as the norm?  Why do we look forward to Fridays, and hate Mondays? Why do we live for a holiday, and dread going back? 


I can assure you - it's not because of the work. It's because of the environment that we go back into. 


And we can change it - starting with you - The Inspired Leader.

Program Elements

The Inspired Leaders Academy is an online program, with a blend of tailored learning and peer learning. This allows participants to build upon their growth, and learn new perspectives from other leaders.


Personal Leadership Coach

Each participant is assigned their own personal leadership coach,designed to be their main point of contact throughout the entire 12months, and to keep them on track and accountable. Every 3 months, the participant will meet with their coach to discuss their progress, get recommendations and to keep track of their growth.


Leadership Assessments

Central to the measurement process is our partnership with the REACH Ecosystem. Every participant will receive their own leadership assessment, identifying the gaps in 16 core leadership skills. 360° feedback assessments are also available to be used throughout the journey to identify blind spots and to measure growth and return on investment.


Leadership Development Webinars

Every month a new leadership development topic will be taught in an interactive, online webinar format. These allow for rich discussions and sharing of new ideas from peers. Topics are listed below. 


Group Coaching Sessions

These are designed to bring the theory into the workplace. They are available twice a month and focus on implementation of skill development. During these sessions, participants will share and encourage others and receive coaching from qualified leadership coaches.


Micro Learning

Thanks to our partnership with REACH Ecosystem, participants will have access to their own personalised dashboard which shows their progress. This dashboard includes leadership development opportunities that are personalised to their individual results, and allow the participant to log in and learn at their own pace. This micro learning supplements the formal leadership development webinars and helps to meet participants where they are at.

"Working with my coach Emma and The Academy covers so much ground on leadership, and forces you to think about leadership in new ways. It gives you the tools to self-evaluate, and what I have particularly found useful is learning and developing tools to influence direct and indirect reports.

What appeals to me about the Academy, compared to other leadership training I have been involved in, is that the Academy helps hone in ideas and concepts that were ‘intuitive’ to some extent, but require refinement and an action plan before implementation"

Meet Emma:

Passionate about creating authentic and courageous leaders, Emma is an award-winning entrepreneur, founder of Her Leadership Journey and Creator of the Inspired Leaders Academy.


Emma’s ability to help women in the workplace to transform from invisible and unheard, into an influential and inspirational leader has resulted in many women stepping into their true, authentic leadership and moving up their career ladder.


She brings a unique combination of formal study and her own less than desirable experiences in the workplace to inspire leaders to own their ambitions, to increase their visibility and leave a lasting impact on those they serve.


She’s curious, asks loads of questions (and expects an answer most of the time 😊) and will push you to believe in yourself like you’ve never done before.


" I've enjoyed pushing outside my comfort zone, and feeling like I have a support network behind me that are in similar positions and there to help me succeed. I feel like this experience has given me direction and confidence in my leadership journey"

 Here are the details:

Inside the Academy you will:

Leadership Library

All previous recordings that cover all aspects of leadership and management from leadership experts in their fields. 


Monthly Coaching Sessions

Every month there are 2 coaching sessions to join. These focus on helping you get results and to achieve in your role, and also how to develop your team, culture and yourself. These are recorded so if you can't make it live for the coaching, you can rewatch. 


Your Leadership Toolkit

As a REACH Certified consultant, I have a suite of psychometric tools available to use that I am offering to members of the academy. You will receive training on how to use the tools for yourself and your team. You also have the opportunity to utilise these tools throughout your organisation, with assistance from certified REACH Consultants.


Expert Masterclasses

We invite leadership experts in a particular area of leadership to share their ideas and help you learn even more. These are live and recordings are placed into the Leadership Library.


Private Community

This is your cheer squad, your support group and your community of friends. 


It's time to stop the negative self talk...


Stop saying things like:


"I'm not cut out to be a manager"

"What have I done wrong"

"No one is listening to me"

"I have nothing to offer"


Because if you keep going the way you're going, you'll end up stressed, tired, burnt out, frustrated and you'll take all of these feelings home to your family and friends.


And that's just not fair.


Worse - you'll get demoted, or leave and never fulfil your dream of management and exceptional leadership. 


Take the time to start working on your own personal development and become the manager you aspire to be and start hearing things like:


  • "Thank you for believing in me"
  • "You're the best manager I've ever had"
  • "Thank you for listening - you make me feel valued"
  • "I love coming to work in this team"


If these are the things you want to hear - just like I did, then join the Academy and allow us to walk on this journey with you. 


How Do I Join?


 Most leadership development programs start at approx $5000, for a few months. But, you see, we're not like most others.  Because we truly believe in the power of implementation, not just knowledge transfer, our Academy is a 12 month investment. Investment of time, of money exchange and of helping others to grow.  

And we know that doesn't suit everyone. 

Regardless of what value you put on the knowledge transfer, one thing we do know - ARE YOU PREPARED TO CHANGE? 

Because if you aren't coachable, are just looking for another frame for the wall, or piece of paper for the resume - WE ARE NOT FOR YOU. 

The Inspired Leaders Academy requires an application process to join. Complete this below and we will organise a time to discuss your application. At that point, pricing and payment plans will be organised to suit your circumstances. 

Apply to Join The Academy


Yep, I fully stand behind this program. Here's the deal - if you do the work, show up to the training and coaching sessions, watch the replays and take action, and then find at the end of the year that you still haven't gotten ANY value whatsoever- I'll refund 100% of your money. 


If there's even a SLIGHT chance you think the Inspired Leaders Academy could work for you, then you should enrol today! 

Because you can try it out - attend our sessions, watch the recordings and see if it's right for you - and I'll give you the ENTIRE YEAR. 

That's how much I believe in this program. 

In as little as 3 months you'll start to see changes around you. In fact, Susan achieved her promotion in that amount of time!

I hope you can see that I'm taking all the risk for you, come and join us today...

Apply to Join The Academy

Which of these results would YOU like?


Scored a promotion!

Just like Kylie (Gov Department)  who has been working hard to implement everything she was learning - even finding a team to coach when she didn't have one of her own. She sent this message
"I won that permanent role I have been chasing! Thanks so much Emma, your guidance has been a major contributor. The feedback I received was that I was a true leader and well respected by my peers and noticed by the Exec"

Or Tori (community bank) - who had wanted to step into a manager role and with guidance was able to find her confidence to put herself forward, speak up and received her management role. She sends this message
" Hi Em, Thank you so much, it's amazing to have someone like you to inspire me, to motivate me, and help me lead the way"


Increased Visibility

Susan (education) first came to me telling me she felt unheard, not appreciated for the work she was doing and was wondering whether it was time to move on. Since working with Emma inside the Academy, she stepped up and had a courageous conversation with her manager, learnt where she stood in the team and department and has achieved recognition from her manager, but also the senior management team. Her team are now more engaged than ever and she is being invited to be part of different projects all over the organisation.

And like Kylie above - she didn't have a team, but wasn't going to let that stop her. So she asked to coach others, and implemented what she was learning, and that goer her known and seen by the exec team - which led to her promotion!


Increased Confidence

This is one of the biggest hurdles for women in management - believing in themselves. We do a lot of work on this in the Academy. And getting comments like this : 

 "I feel like this experience has given me direction and confidence in my leadership journey” just confirms the Inspired Leaders Academy is the place to be for REAL Leadership Development.

And Ellie (FMCG) - who said "What a fantastic program this week Emma, thank you. I feel more confident already and look forward to grow more here"


More Focus and Clarity

Joanna (Trade business) says that after working with Emma in the Academy she now has "clear focus and direction and is able to support her team to achieve their goals" 

Or Faith who says "I have had goals before, but you have helped me break them down and think of ways to achieve them in a more structured way"


Supportive Environment

Hannah (local government) says "Emma, you've created an engaging and supportive community!

And Rachel (health sector) who commented" You are so genuine, Thankyou for making this space for all of us to see the examples of what we are working towards as leaders"

Where's the Value? 

Let's explore other ways you can access this information:

1) You can hire a mentor or coach and get them to help you on a 1:1 basis. You're looking upwards of $1000 per month for this. The other downside to this option is that you only get 1 perspective. 

By joining the membership, you get the power of entire brains trust! AND everyone else's experiences and perspectives, giving you a richer experience and more options to choose when you need them.

2) You could go and do a management and leadership course. This will cost you anywhere from $2500 - $5000+. You will get lots of theory, but not a great deal of practical implementation. 

AND you need to write essays and reports, that no one else will really read. 

PLUS you have to bug your manager to get involved with your learning so they can guide you along. This doesn't leave you free to experiment in your own way.


3) You can definitely DIY it! Read books, articles, listen to podcasts - there is SO MUCH information out there! But you are on your own. You don't get the support and perspectives of the group of women, nor do you get a sounding board to discuss ideas prior to implementation and to debrief afterwards (see point 1)

As you can see, there are so many ways to get the outcome you are seeking - we offer it to you in a supportive group format, with a little bit of all the goodness from each of the above options.
