When life is a journey, it helps to know how to navigate it.

In Tandem

Don’t take the wheel. Share it.

In Tandem coaching is for functional dual career couples or business partners navigating both individual and shared goals.

  • Focus: Dual Career Couples

    About 70% of Australian households now have two working parents. This throws up some unique challenges to overcome. Assessing options and making decisions to balance career goals, advancement opportunities, home responsibilities and precious time with family.

    The need for In Tandem was realised after coaching hundreds of women in the Compass Leadership Program. In Tandem addresses the systemic barriers facing women and men managing work and life domains together.

  • Focus: Business Partnerships

    People often join business partnerships for financial reasons, but leave because of values, career or life goal misalignment. In Tandem coaching aims to support sustainability in the partnership.

    • Life Styles Inventory diagnostic for each participant
    • Values discovery and share

  • Hodi Beauliv, Executive Manager Business Development, Sunraysia Community Health Services

    Through monthly one-on-one coaching sessions coach Michelle Crouch helped me develop a plan to embed what I learned from the Compass leadership course into my day to day actions. She helped me add even more tools to my leadership toolbox, further building my emotional intelligence and resilience to consistently operate from a constructive leadership perspective. She was always there to support me, asking the right questions whenever I faced a challenge. Michelle made it possible for me to successfully transition to an executive level role. Thank you, Michelle!

  • Helena Hurley, CEO – Good Return

    Compass has given me a renewed sense of energy and hope. It has provided me with invaluable insights as well as a number of tools to apply in my professional and personal life. It has helped me set sail into the future with greater purpose.

  • Brigid O’Sullivan, Mgr Communications – Western Water

    "The program has been transformational, grounded in theory, and facilitated with empathy and power. Each graduate will remain with me on my leadership development journey, as will the diagnostics and insight."

Amanda Ratnam – Clayton Utz

    "The Compass program was inspiring and life-changing for me. I learnt, but, most of all, experienced. Becoming more self-aware has already led to better outcomes for those I work with, deal with and for me, most of all. I cannot express how thankful I am for the opportunity to be a part of it."
