Building Resilience & Implementing Sustainable
Solutions to Challenging Situations

We don't tend to think of the workplace as a place where we need to work with trauma overtly. We believe trauma belongs in the domain of mental health, to your therapy sessions, and not your leadership consultant or your executive coach. But here's the truth; you deal with human beings who have experiences, every experience leaves an impact on them, and adults spend most of their time at work. Workplaces need to become places where we not only grow and develop, but they also need to be places where we can heal and repair. Becoming trained in a trauma-sensitive approach will significantly affect how you and your leadership team lead and connect.

I imagine you are seeking a healthy, vibrant, functioning workplace environment to do the work you're good at instead of constantly dealing with the current organisational issues and challenges.

It may be that you have tried many times to resolve the issues within your organisation only to discover that they might settle for a while but end up repeating or showing up differently. Any benefit from the work you tried isn't sustainable. I can show you how using a combination of linear and non-linear approaches will have you stop managing the symptoms and start addressing the cause. Using this approach is how you can affect the authentic, positive, sustainable change you desire.

After years of working in many different work environments ranging from the RAAF to Education to Palliative Care to many small businesses to operating my own business since 2006, it's really clear for me what constitutes a healthy work environment and what is a toxic workplace. I can sniff them out from a mile away!

It was after completing my Masters and studying Trauma Recovery and Transgenerational Collective Trauma that I was able to have a very different understanding of how and why toxic workplaces exist. 

It's from these experiences that Compassionate Empowered Workplaces program was born, with the intention of helping leaders enhance their confidence, authenticity and connection, allowing them to make significant positive change in their organisation's workplace and its' overall performance. The most sustainable way to affect any change is to start with yourself! The Leadership skills you already have will be complemented by the work you do with me.

" It's not that some people have willpower and some don't. It's that some people are ready 
to change and others are not." James Gordon

Compassionate Empowered Workplaces is designed to support and embed deep positive change in the leadership of private organisations and Government sectors such as Health, Education and Justice. The result of leaders embracing this work then filters through the whole workplace; freeing your organisation from toxic elements which then creates the potential to enjoy a well functioning vibrant environment based on mutual respect and understanding.

This work is a commitment to your future sustainable success and the sustainable success of those who are in your employ.

Compassionate Empowered Workplaces is not for you if you are just ticking a professional development box! This is for those leaders and decision makers who really want to make sustainable change in the way they do business and want to
create a vibrant, healthy and supportive environment for those who are in their employ.

"The victim mindset dilutes the human potential. By not accepting personal responsibility for our circumstances, we greatly reduce our power to change them." Steve Maraboli

A high percentage of us have worked in one of 'THOSE' workplaces! You know the place where you hate the thought of having to get up in the morning and go to. You might have fleeting thoughts of calling in sick...but you did that last week! You could say one of the kids are sick....but you don't have kids! Or if it's your business and you are really feeling the burden of delivering what you need to and the challenges you are facing with staff zap all of your attention and energy. You get what I'm saying.

When you wake up in the morning, you feel the dread in the pit of your stomach, your body feels heavy and it's like lifting lead up from the pillow into a sitting position. It takes everything inside of you to make yourself move and get ready for work. What a misery! That's not living your life to it's full potential.

""Change almost never fails because it's too early. It almost always fails because it's too late." 
Seth Godin

I imagine you want a workplace you love going to but it's a bit like looking forward to a nice cup of coffee only to find when you drink it, it tastes worse than dirty dish water (not that I have tasted that but I can imagine it would be disgusting). Not to mention how your health and wellbeing is being negatively impacted.

  • What if: There was something you could do that would have a deep positive impact on the state of your workplace?
  • What if: This something had a deep positive impact on all areas of your life?
  • What if: You could drink from the Healthy Workplaces cup instead of the Toxic Workplaces cup?
  • What if: You didn't have to spend your precious time dealing with the toxic issues?
"As a Leader, if you do not do your Inner Work, what is unresolved in you will be
reflected back to you by those you lead."  Linda Conyard

May I suggest that you read the ‘Compassionate Empowered Workplace’ e-book (above) for further information about what could be possible for you and your organisation.

Once you have gone through the e-book there is an opportunity to schedule an obligation free consultation. During this meeting we can explore the challenges you are currently facing and I can walk you through how the Compassionate Empowered Workplaces 6 phased ‘Roadmap' may offer sustainable solutions for you.

Linda Conyard has been the catalyst to a massive shift in my paradigms, both professionally and personally. I thought my corporate career was as finely tuned as I could hope for when I sought Linda’s help on a personal issue. A few months later my business life has changed intrinsically with huge freedom and sustainability. Her approach across all areas and levels has led to a profound change in my business success and results. This has occurred through becoming aware of my personal limitations and translating this through some excellent strategies from Linda to my work environment. Challenging but so incredibly simple!

Linda is a true professional! Through working with Linda I have gained clarity and a whole new approach to my business and also elements of my personal life.

Thank you so much Linda. Alisa

I was pleasantly surprised to hear Linda also offered business mentoring! Which couldn't have come at a more perfect time for me. I believe I am smart enough to do anything I dream of, but like most, I suffer from an annoying disease called self sabotage. I walked away from the session with clear next steps to take to reach my goal. I really gained clarity on how short my deadline was and what I needed to do to meet it. I am looking forward to working more with her on this. Lucy

Today I learned to trust in the process of something I didn’t quite understand and to think outside my usual parameters. I allowed myself to feel and welcome support. Today gave me a different perspective and was profound. I am very grateful for this experience. Catherine

Today I realised it is ok to honour your past but the future is yours. I opened up to other's point of view. It was a powerful experience. Carolyne
- Carolyne
I learned that we allow or things keep happening until there is healing. I reconnected with my body and listened when it spoke. I went from blame, guilt and shame to some clarity. I was able to realize what I carried wasn't all mine and that allowed me to only carry and deal with my own guilt not that from previous generations. It was amazing, I was unaware of carrying guilt from other generations - unaware that other issues need to be healed and let go of to focus on the primary issue. It was totally amazing what came out in the constellations. I'm glad I kept my courage to come and peel back the veil to what was buried inside me. Thank you Linda for providing a safe, supportive environment to approach such a difficult subject. Name withheld.
