Introducing HR Coaching for Leaders Mastermind!

I’m excited to share my latest creation which is something that has been on my heart for some time now, to be able to reach and support even more small business owners and leaders on my proactive approach to HR, sharing my knowledge and allowing you to take control of your HR decisions – by keeping it simple and without all the jargon!
Can you relate to any of these?
❔You lay awake at night worried about your team, will they show up, will they perform well, can I trust them?
❔ When it comes to supporting your team, there are times when you are worried if you are doing or saying the “right” thing
❔You constantly feel out of your depth when it comes to HR knowledge and prefer to avoid the topic and leave it to the experts
❔You often feel a sense of dread and overwhelm when a HR issue arises and would like to feel calm, considered and confident when dealing with issues
❔You often scramble for help only when something goes wrong, which can end up being quite costly 
❔You have used other HR providers in the past and the service hasn’t been up to scratch 
❔You wish you had access to quality HR advice and knowledge that was cost-effective
Well, look no further, I have the solution for you!
You can say goodbye to costly HR bills. 
With this Mastermind, you get to learn the information relevant for your business by building the HR skills and knowledge from within your business, which is much more cost-effective and sustainable for your business.
HR shouldn’t be a leadership skill that is put to the side, or that someone else will handle for you – it all comes down to you.
In its true essence, HR is all about understanding and knowing your people deeply, and, making supportive decisions for your team.
And who is the person who knows your team and business the best – YOU!
So, why not invest up front, be proactive and learn about people by keeping everything you learn about HR in your business (instead of having to outsource or get help only when something goes wrong and then you are paying a premium!)

My approach to HR is all about being proactive.

This Mastermind will give you access to the best of me, learn my proactive ways, the tips, tools and techniques that I have used for over 20 years of my HR experience (and so much more).
How do you know if this is the right program for you?

Let’s dive a little deeper now and share more about each learning module in this first Level 1 Mastermind of Building Your Team ⬇️
Learning Modules
Organisation Design: Hang on, designing what now, you say? Don’t be concerned, we aren’t taking an art class but we will start by talking about What is organisational design? Why is it important? And the reason why we start here when we are thinking about Building Your Team.
Like a house, to build a team you want it to be sustainable, align with your style and be commercially viable/affordable. If you are ready to build a team, or bring on a new team member, we start with a key exercise to determine what you require and how to design your people structure that will simplify and save you time and $ in the long run – without this step you could be stabbing in the dark! I’ll say it again, being clear up front on what you need before you hire someone will save you time and $ in the long run.
Policies, procedure and guidelines: You will hear me talk about Guidelines and we will touch on why I suggest a Guidelines versus policies approach. Guidelines can provide a more inclusive approach and can take into consideration different scenarios when you have engaging, considered and supportive guidelines for your business, rather than a restrictive, in a box, policy. Offering you suggestions, insights, trends, must-haves and nice to haves and how to manage your guidelines ongoing.
Job Descriptions: My number one go-to! The number one doc to have to create alignment between you and your team. This is such a key module for you to learn and implement immediately for your team, so they are clear on what they are responsible for. We will look at why is it so important to have a JD and how to write effective JDs. Getting this right is also a key step when preparing to hire.
Remuneration: where do we start when it comes to money and what to pay your team – there is so much more to learn about remuneration and salaries than just plucking a number from thin air (yes I have seen this happen!) We talk about how to get it right, what components make up a remuneration package, understanding salaries on a general sense, what impacts market movements and why it’s important to compare to market, how does economic shifts have an impact, when to take note of award changes and what is the minimum to pay – finishing with what do I have in the budget. This is also a great time to have a guest expert to support the practicalities of payroll – stay tuned!
Recruitment: this a big topic, hold tight while we dive deep into the options available when you are ready to bring someone onboard. What are the key steps to hiring effectively, inclusively and getting it right the first time? We will cover topics:
  • Starting with gaining clarity on what you require with a job description (you will already have completed this module!) 
  • Advertising, knowing the best sourcing options for your biz, what to look for when shortlisting, how to phone screen applicants effectively and why is this an important step to do
  • What additional testing options are there if this can help your process and how to know if is this relevant to you
  • Reference checking and why an important step, through to the offer stage.
You might have thought we’ve missed interviewing, but as this is a big part of recruitment and a key skill to learn, we will take the time to look at this separately.
Interviewing: this deserves a whole module on its own! Interviewing is a skill to learn and practice, practice, practice. The candidate learning about your business and what you stand for, is just as important as you learning about their skills and experience. We will focus on what a typical interviewing approach can look like, what to cover, what to ask/what not to ask, how to be consistent and inclusive in your approach (and why this is important) and suggestions to ensure the right outcome and hire for your business.

I recently experienced a 1:1 coaching series with Hayley and at the beginning I was feeling pretty negative about myself and where I was heading in the future. I realised that I needed to make changes by having someone who could support me through the process and hold me accountable. A coaching series was exactly what I needed, I felt excited and motivated because I knew I would be setting concrete goals and actions, with accountability. After the first session, I was on the verge of discovering some really great opportunities to kick start my life in the right direction. Throughout the series I gained greater self-motivation and self-belief and made positive changes within myself that friends and loved ones recognise. Hayley was encouraging and believed in me and created an amazing space for me to make these positive changes.
I had quit my job of 10 years with no plans for what was next. I really needed time to recharge, relax and revitalize my soul before even thinking about what was next. I was excited about the prospect of change and creating something new in my life. I wanted to create more love and joy in my life and live more confidently. I wanted to reignite and nourish my soul and passion for life. Hayley was someone who I could talk honestly with. I also felt a huge sense of trust and calm and the conversation was easy, I just had to feel into my life and be really present with myself and open to limitless possibilities. As someone who constantly looks at my mistakes, weaknesses, areas of improvement, to take the time to reflect on my strengths, values and what is important to me has really had a huge impact on the direction my life is now taking. I really felt comfortable doing this with Hayley who was a huge support with her extremely grounded, calm and reassuring presence. I feel so much more confident now and the trust I have in myself has improved and friends have noticed this confidence, sense of direction, energy, enthusiasm and passion and I now feel like I am more authentic in my relationships. This coaching series with you, Hayley, has made me realise that having a coach is a non-negotiable for the accountability and the offering of a different perspective and loving support.
When I started working with Hayley, I was feeling lost and not sure of my future and what I wanted in my life and I felt I needed some guidance to reevaluate where I was at. I had never worked with a coach before so I felt excited, nervous and hopeful - I knew the journey was going to be positive and worth it! At the end of our 1st session, I knew having a coach was finally going to give me the opportunity to be able to wholeheartedly invest the time in myself and commit to what I had been wanting to work through for a while. The relationship I now have with myself is probably the one that I have noticed the biggest shift in. I now feel lighter as a person as though a weight has been lifted off my shoulders - the experience was life changing for me. The learnings I had throughout the 12 weeks were so powerful for me and something I’ll hold on to. I can’t thank Hayley enough for taking the time to help me on this journey! In every session Hayley was always so present and positive and allowed me to be completely vulnerable and open. Hayley has a warm and encouraging manner which helped me to look deeper in myself than I ever have before and I can’t thank her enough for allowing me to do so with no judgement. The advice, guidance, patience and love Hayley gave will be something I will carry with me always.
I had quit my job and was struggling to compute what it was I wanted to do next. I could not see through the 20 different ideas a day which were overwhelming and hard to comprehend. The best thing I learnt is that I didn’t need to have all the answers then and there, I just needed to be able to tap into what I truly wanted among my millions of ideas and narrow down how to make them work and fit within my daily life. I have transformed from a confused ball of stress to someone who knows what she wants and best of all how to get it. Hayley asks questions that allow you to see the answers for yourself. She creates a space where you don’t feel silly thinking so broad and out there. Her talent is helping you see what it is you want regardless of how far fetched you feel it may be. Through my coaching sessions I have found myself filled with confidence, direction and hope for the future. Getting me to this place of success I currently find myself in, both externally in what I am achieving in work/career and internally within myself. I cannot thank you enough for what you have managed to light and instil inside me through this experience. You were there to commiserate when things were tough and celebrate the wins. You were honest and understanding all at once. I never would have imagined a year ago I would find myself in casual work, about to study to work with animals and engaging in a healthy relationship with food and fitness. It goes to show it’s never too late to make changes, take risks as long as you’re prepared to do the work, to dig for what it is you truly want. I would still be lost if it weren’t for you - so thank you.
I started working with Hayley when I needed to return to the workforce after having been out of it for 7 years. Realising so many things had changed including my loss of confidence I knew I needed added support. With Hayleys support I have been able to build a resume I’m proud of and apply for positions I didn’t think I would be capable of. I really appreciated that Hayley went beyond the basics and really encouraged me to dive deeper into my capabilities as well as what it was I actually wanted from a position and the company I worked for. Her gentle, practical approach was so supportive and as a result of working with her I have just been offered a great opportunity. I highly recommend Hayley as a coach.
