Executive Coaching

We provide individual coaching for executives and managers wanting to go to the next level in their growth and development.

Our experienced coaches come from rich background of theory and practice. Meaning we support leaders to take a systemic view of their leadership – both inside and outside the workplace.

Our coaches design and foster robust and confidence-building working partnerships, underpinned by sound coaching principles, ethics and global standards. They use validated techniques that draw on neuroscience, developmental psychology, education, organisation development, wellness, mindfulness and systems thinking.

Our 1:1 coaching with executives often leads to team coaching within the client’s organization. Typically, this includes working together to share values, develop effective behaviours and agree strategic goals. Our approach helps individuals and the whole team fully maximise the performance of the wider system they are in.

Our coaches are approved by the International Coach Federation (ICF), namely:

  • Mary Beth Robles

    Managing Director

    Mary Beth is the Managing Director of Collective Intelligence. My family and I are delighted to be back home in New Zealand after a thirty-year international career at Colgate Palmolive.
    Many of the leaders I have worked with have jobs that require them to be constantly growing more capable, better able to handle complexity, and adapt to the emerging future. As a member, Collective Intelligence offers what I believe leaders need today more than ever – a fiercely compassionate community that supports us individually and collectively at our growing edges. That means lots of goodness for New Zealand. That’s what attracted me to Collective Intelligence, first as a member and now as Managing Director.

    It is inspiring and fun to work together with the talented and diverse people that make Collective Intelligence hum!

  • Sue Johnston

    Facilitator

    A collective intelligence member of a team facilitated by Sue said she could clearly see what Sue’s ‘why’ was. She told Sue that she saw her like a gardener – clearing out the weeds and mess, watering and feeding, so people could get on and grow. “You grow people”, she said.

    Spot on. Sue says her why is to encourage and enthuse people so that they discover what’s really possible in their life and work – and go for it. Sue’s specialty is gently moving people and teams through the knowing – doing gap. From knowing what’s possible towards making it happen.

    Sue has been a Collective Intelligence facilitator since 2011. She brings with her a wisdom and style honed by working for over 20 years with people and complex systems to find improvements that make a difference. She is a certified leadership coach with the International Coach Federation. She is also a Results Certified Coach with the NeuroLeadership Institute and a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator working with leaders and organisations committed to becoming more authentic leaders through encouraging innovation and growing courageous and connected teams. Sue’s background as a sportsperson (she played water polo for New Zealand and represented her province in three sports), and having worked in the health and public policy space continue to shape her work as she continues to share her wisdom with people in these arenas.

    Sue lives in Greytown, New Zealand where she mountain bikes, dances samba and enjoys good food and wine.

  • Kathy Tracey

    Facilitator

    A systemic team leadership coach and facilitator, and now based in New Zealand, Kathy spent 30 years in the UK and Europe learning her trade. She still works regularly in Europe and the Middle East and is known for an engaging style, bringing humour and genuine curiosity to the teams she works with.

    Her claim to fame is a Guinness World Record for rowing across the Atlantic. She says the 67 days spent at sea not only gave her a great topic for conference keynotes, but also taught her much about personal resilience and the ‘magic’ that happens outside your comfort zone.

ICF is the leading global organisation that advances the coaching profession. ICF sets high standards and gives independent certification.
