Leadership and Management


We work with leaders and managers who are stressed about the people side of their role; are wanting to have more influence and impact or who are navigating change. Our coaching programs help you develop the insights, awareness, skills and knowledge to deal with the complex people problems and leave your stress behind. 

We specialize in leadership coaching for emerging leaders and those in transition. We also help high achieving leaders to stretch and grow. Jeanette White is an internationally credentialed ACC coach with the International Coaching Federation (ICF) who creates a supportive and empowering environment for your professional and personal development.

What others think?

Coaching helped me identify what I needed as a human being, rather than what I needed as an employee.  I had to dig into who I am and what I value, which was both insightful and a little confronting.

I discovered what REALLY mattered, rather than what SHOULD matter and built ways to act on those things.

Alisha Gilliland

Education Coordinator, Health Sector

Rise Coaching & Development has helped me in profound ways. I have cleared away some negative thoughts and feelings and I now have more confidence in my career.

I know myself and am looking forward, knowing I have the skills to do whatever I want.

Michelle Denman

Specialist Consultant, Human Services

Jeanette helped me with work-life balance. I now have more time for my familiy, and for myself. I am more productive at work as I am able to delegate, and now work reasonable hours without guilt. 

She was able to help me create tangible solutions to everyday issues. Her coaching was insightful, creating relevant and positive change

Frequently Asked Questions
Face to face or Zoom?

The majority of coaching sessions are now conducted online. Limited face to face sessions may be available.

Is coaching like counselling or mentoring?

Coaching is different from counselling where sessions focus mainly on the person’s past in order to bring about understanding and healing. It is also different from mentoring or advice – the goal is not to tell you what you should do or how to live your life. It’s about being empowered to identify the changes that you would like to make and then help you through the process of achieving these goals.

What about confidentiality?

All coaching sessions are strictly confidential as outlined in your coaching contract. If an organisation is sponsoring coaching for an employee, an agreement may be made to share some aspects of the coaching outcomes, but always by agreement of all parties and specified in a contract. The full confidentiality agreement is outlined in your contract. 

Will the sessions be recorded?

Coaching sessions can be recorded and provided to clients on request. 

What if I need to cancel or postpone?

No problem.  You can reschedule up to 24 hours before your appointment without penalty. 

How do I book?

You can book using Acuity Scheduling and and pay for your sessions via PayPal or Stripe at the time of booking. If you prefer, we can send you an invoice. All sessions must be prepaid unless otherwise agreed.
