Michael, thank you so much for developing and facilitating the Leadership Workshop for our Management team.

It is a privilege to share the great success our organisation and myself have achieved with InsideOut Consulting. Being a Top 50 Best Place to Work over the last 7 years doesn’t just happen!

InsideOut Consulting's wonderful support and guided thinking helped our senior management and members of the board to grow and navigate through the ever changing landscape in the fastest growing industry in Australia.

Michael Ryder of InsideOut Consulting has undertaken work for me across a number of organisations as I’ve looked to foster change in the workforces and grow leadership, in government, education and private industry. The work he has undertaken has included fostering change within leadership teams and cultures, and growing leadership capability. This has included coaching difficult managers develop soft skills to more effectively lead their teams as they undertake change.

I have always been able to rely on Michael to take the time to understand the organisation, its issues and the individuals involved before he provides a solution. His approach is flexible, evidence based and consultative.

I engaged InsideOut Consulting for my executive coaching over a period in which I was being tested both professionally and personally. Their guidance was perceptive and insightful, with the ability to identify and focus on the important issues quickly. I found the sessions immensely useful. In particular, they helped me navigate the best possible outcome for both myself and the business in an extremely challenging environment. I continue to draw on the skills developed and the learnings generated from that process, and highly recommend InsideOut Consulting to anyone seeking an executive coach.

Working with InsideOut Consulting on developing my Leadership effectiveness has absolutely changed my life and career. Their supportive and dedicated approach enabled me to positively and proactively challenge my own limitations, unleashing key learnings that sparked the beginning of my journey of self-mastery. It was a truly rewarding, invigorating and transformative experience.

I cannot recommend Insideout Consulting more highly to anyone that wants to be the best version of their professional self.

Aniela Fleming
Marketing Manager

I have worked with InsideOut Consulting for over four years as my business coach, however for the last 18 months I have worked with them as ‘partners’ to assist with a business cultural transformation program.

At a personal level, their professionalism, honesty and practical approach to business coaching has enormously assisted my leadership journey. At a corporate level, they have proved invaluable in our leadership development program.

InsideOut Consulting’s ability to draw on their vast corporate experiences, as well as others, means their coaching and masterclasses are far more relevant and applicable than a pure theory-based approach.

The feedback I receive from our team on their collective leadership journey has been very positive and they feel privileged to have been exposed to the learnings of InsideOut Consulting.

They also have an amazing ability to connect and relate to a broad range of people, making it easy to bring them into the business and have an aligned approach.

Helen’s intuitiveness and ability to draw on her vast corporate experience as a female business leader has been hugely advantageous for a number of women in our business. Helen has enabled them with the tools, resources and guidance to take their personal and professional lives to the next level.

With a warmth and integrity, Helen quickly delves to the heart of issues with her perceptive abilities. Going through a period of transition, Helen gently (and firmly when needed) guided me through a series of steps and processes, analysing both personal and business issues in order to provide clarity and suggestions that are both innovative and straightforward.

Creating inner awareness of one’s own abilities, skills and attributes, Helen seeks to empower those who seek her services, to guide and encourage them into the next stage of their career/lives.

Helen – a truly great mentor!

Thank you for enhancing my skills that have shaped my career and professional life.

Your mentoring and coaching over the last 6 months has meant so much to me, I can never really thank you enough.
