BIO

Principal Executive Coach

Our Principal Coach, Louise Taylor Walls, is a skilled Executive and Organisational Coach and an experienced, results-focused business professional.  She works collaboratively with her clients to identify goals and achieve desired coaching outcomes.  Supporting high potential individuals and senior executives on their leadership journey, she thrives on helping them to think clearly, recognise their true potential, and overcome challenges, ultimately delivering higher-impact organisational results.

Louise has Board and senior leadership experience in financial services, business information and professional services sectors.  She has worked in small, medium and large corporations with positions ranging from general management to business transformation roles.  This breadth of experience provides her with a deep understanding of the commercial landscape and challenges which her clients face. Louise’s coaching experience sits across a range of sectors including financial services, energy, professional services and hospitality, where she has worked with clients from middle management through to C-Suite.

Louise utilises a strengths-based approach to coaching, employing a combination of tools and techniques to help clients reflect deeply, delivering clarity of thought, and creating practical and executable plans.  Through thought-provoking conversations, clients start to think differently and find their own answers to the challenges they face. This helps them to recognise their own ability, validates thinking and builds confidence and courage.  Louise’s calm and approachable nature quickly builds a sense of trust and rapport.

Originally from the UK, Louise’s spirit of adventure and challenge saw her taking to the high seas from age 15 and ultimately sailing to Australia on a 58ft yacht at age 22, where she lived for 20 years.  Whilst she travels regularly back to Australia for her Board work, she now calls Singapore home.  Louise has a love for fitness and well-being but also a passion for good food and wine.

Areas of Coaching Expertise

Louise has a passion for supporting successful and motivated individuals to be even more successful.  She is focused on helping people maximise their career potential and achieve sustainable high performance balanced with well-being.

 

Louise’s particular areas of interest are:

  • Role Transition – supporting individuals move from subject matter expert to business leader, or to successfully move into a new role with confidence and control.

  • Developing Emerging Leaders – cultivating high potentials to help them understand their strengths and potential and how to build on these for optimal performance results and career outcomes.

  • Women in Leadership – supporting women to develop their leadership style, presence and personal brand, navigate their career and successfully operate with confidence and impact.

  • Personal Brand - awareness of the factors that influence perception and the impact this has on career opportunities. 

  • Career Planning – working with individuals to deliver clarity around their personal values, motivators (and demotivators), strengths, skills and experience to create a well-informed plan for a successful and rewarding career journey.
