“I would completely endorse the Cass Russell philosophy of ‘we don’t tell, we empower’.
Cass had great insight into how to get the most from me. She is flexible in her coaching methods to adapt to individual styles of learning, engagement and desired outcomes.
I definitely had a few ‘ah ha’ moments during my coaching and overall felt it provided me with a sense of understanding in my leadership and empowerment in my abilities. Through my coaching with Cass, I have improved my leadership confidence considerably.
Cass also provided me coaching strategies around other personal goals to define and gain clarity on their implementation.”
Nicole: Higher Education Manager (March 2015)
“Having just completed intensive productivity coaching with Cass Russell, I feel empowered and ready for whatever this year brings. Cass has taken the theory of organisational practice and helped me to implement a framework and approach to managing my work that has set me up for success. The combination of tailored practical strategies and professional coaching was invaluable – it helped me to understand and beat my tendency to procrastinate. If you want to be in control of your workload and improve your productivity, I highly recommend this program.”
Kim Douglas: Faculty Manager (2015 productivity coaching)
“Thanks so much for the workshop today. You are a brilliant facilitator. I loved the way you kept us engaged with a good fast pace. Your questions were practical and insightful. I feel very ‘complete’ on 2014 and ready for 2015.”
Paula Loveday: Peace and Prosperity (year end review workshop)
“I’ve been procrastinating about my renovations for years and had a loan approved 12 months ago to do them. In the 12 weeks of coaching, I had plans done for my kitchen, booked my cabinets and put together a plan for finalising the renovations in my kitchen and living room.
The best thing about the coaching was that it made me accountable. I’m a fairly driven person but I’m strangely equally good at procrastinating.
Some of the tools I got out of the sessions will be things I hope I will always have to draw on when I need them. In prescribing the exercises and tools, Cass would ask lots of questions, so I felt like I was part of the process of deciding which activities would be best for me.
Cass is a natural coach. It’s obvious that she really enjoys helping people and seeing them prosper.”
Lundell: Digital Marketing Team Leader
“When I started my Executive Coaching program with Cass I was unsure how I was ever going to achieve my goals – they seemed so big and unachievable! However, with Cass’ exceptional coaching skills I have been able to see things from different perspectives, gained numerous insights and determined tangible strategies for tackling my goals. Eight months on my confidence has grown enormously and I am well on my way to achieving what I thought was the impossible! Cass’ coaching has been invaluable to me and my career and I know I will continue apply the skills and concepts I have learnt for many years to come.”
Bernice: HR Manager
“I think Cass is an excellent coach and has given me great insight into many career related aspects for me. I highly regard her style and approach and would recommend her without hesitation to anyone seeking help or to gain insight into their career.”
Andrew: Team Leader, WorkCover Brisbane
“Cass Russell has been instrumental in completely turning our business around. Her ability to foster positive and progressive thinking has enabled me to set goals and objectives that I would otherwise have never thought capable of tackling. She has also armed me with the confidence and know how to better manage my team and make the tough business decisions required to achieve our goals. I am more confident, have clearer thinking and more positive approach to work / life balance.”
