Executive Career Coahes Australia

Finding The Right Coach For You

Our Careers Australia Coaches have extensive industry experience and corporate backgrounds, either as managers, consultants or facilitators. We are active members of the International Society for Performance Improvement, the International Coaching Federation and the International Association of Coaching.

We are committed to upholding and basing our coaching practices on the Ethical Standards and Code of Ethics associated with the coaching profession.

Careers Australia Coaches work one-on-one with individual clients, either in person or on the telephone. During the first coaching consultation we help our clients set goals in the three most important areas of their lives. Ongoing sessions then provide structure, feedback, perspective and encouragement to assist our clients to achieve their goals as quickly and easily as possible.

Coaching is a unique conversation that closely examines what it will take to reach the specified objectives. During sessions our clients commit to taking actions for the following week. At the next meeting, we discuss the obstacles faced in the interim, and the insights gained in overcoming them.

We then provide the client with strategies for developing new habits, as they close in on their goals.

Delivery methods are flexible enough to be matched to individual and organisational needs. Coaching can include:

  • Onsite one-to-one coaching
  • Telephone coaching
  • Small & large group workshops and presentations

Our coaches have worked with clients in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.

Careers Australia Coaching is all about working with someone who believes in you. In fact, our boast is that we can get you to believe in yourself. Start to see things from new perspectives, and set your sights on new horizons.

Every successful athlete and performer today has a coach of some sort. Remember that, in Kylie Hammond and her Careers Australia team of highly qualified Executive Coaches, you have a personal trainer dedicated to raising you to an elite level of professional fitness. Our coaching team is focused on the needs of our clients and helping them to achieve personal and corporate outcomes. Most importantly, Careers Australia coaching is based on integrity, trust and respect for the people that we work with.

Recruitment and executive coaching is a competitive field and I admire the fact that Kylie is a woman business owner striving and succeeding in this business. I wanted to nominate Kylie for the Telstra Business Women's Award as it is an excellent vehicle to showcase the achievements of Australian women like Kylie Hammond” March 7, 2010

Conrad Spendlove, Chief Executive Officer

Kylie's Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity
“As someone who had grown into an executive role - and not formally applied for a job in over 15 years - I was completely at a loss as to how to find my next position, yet I knew I had to find something. Kylie coached me with sensitivity, great clarity and very perceptively. Her advice spanned (what seemed to me to be) a far broader spectrum than simply career coaching. It was precisely this broad spectrum that enabled me to (a) work out my current situation and (b) find my new role. Kylie did not get me a job, but I am certain I would not have found it without her guidance. The role that I now have was not advertised, but suits me perfectly. I would be happy to recommend Kylie to any of my friends and peers.” January 14, 2010

Tom Hannemann, Principal

Kylie's Top Qualities: Expert, High Integrity, Creative
“I have been fortunate to have been a close business associate of Kylie’s since mid-2005. In helping candidates to achieve their career goals, she demonstrates the ultimate in professionalism, and her unique approach and customised programs position her well ahead of other services. She always goes well beyond the "call of duty" in enabling people to confidently and successfully present and promote themselves in highly competitive environments.” January 12, 2010

Tony Dagger, IT Director
Kylie's Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity
“I engaged with Kylie to develop my interviewing skills for C level roles. Kylie was exceptional in her mentoring and guidance. In a very short time she proved her expertise and displayed an ability to transfer skills and techniques to seriously improve my interviewing techniques. Every session was highly productive and thoroughly enjoyable. The proof was in the end results, i.e. the role I secured. I would readily recommend Kylie to anyone serious about developing their Senior Management/Executive skills.” September 1, 2009

Robert Morrison, Project Director
Kylie's Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, Creative
“Kylie did a great job for me in improving my resume, and offering sound, out of the box ideas. Kylie impresses with her high level of experience in career management, coaching and resume presentation. Kylie is able to offer her candidates a sound and independent view in how best to present themselves to employers, helping them to highlight valuable skills and experience. This is all important these days, especially as the job market can be highly competitive; often first impressions and presentation are everything in getting yourself in front of a committee and getting the job. Strongly recommended also as a career coach.” August 12, 2009

David Seamans, Managing Director & Business Owner

Kylie's Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity
“Kylie is the consummate professional, always "thinking on her feet" and has facts and information at her fingertips.

I am extremely honoured to be asked to provide a recommendation for Kylie and would be happy to provide further details if required at any time.” August 9, 2009

Peter Lakmaker, Chief Technology Officer
Kylie's Top Qualities: Personable, High Integrity, Creative
"I have found Kylie to be a true professional in her field. Unlike most of her competitors, Kylie creates a highly motivated personal relationship with her clients and focuses on the individual, as opposed to simply filling "jobs available". She endeavours to match the skills and attributes of her clients to the current and future requirements of companies, and complements these initial services with excellent ongoing coaching, training and executive mentoring." August 4, 2009

Heinz Herrmann, Executive General Manager & Sales Director
Kylie's Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity
"Kylie leverages her network of contacts well for her clients. Having done the "hard yards in the trenches" herself, she excels in career coaching. Kylie has developed her own methodologies in the coaching area. In addition to her process know-how, she understands that everyone is an individual. I believe Kylie's services are a useful element of the HR tool box, which should be offered as employee benefits - to retain staff, not just for outplacement." August 4, 2009

Damian Haas, Managing Director & National Sales Director

Kylie's Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, Creative

Kimberley Ramplin, Marketing Director

Kylie's Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity
“Kylie designs and executes career coaching programmes which really work. A few months after engaging her services, I was headhunted for a role with a multinational corporation. Although I have taken a different path since then and returned to university to complete a Masters degree, I attribute the ease with which I made that decision and my determination to succeed, to Kylie’s influence.” August 3, 2009

Nathan Jones, Change Management & Project Director
Kylie's Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity
“Kylie is a very personable and professional individual who is prepared to look beyond the obvious to achieve results. I approached Kylie to help me find a new job. What she provided was a new way of approaching my career, the way I looked at employment and, most importantly in my opinion, my own understanding of myself and the value of my experience and training. Kylie helped me find the confidence to stop "wandering lost in the wilderness" and focus on the things I know and enjoy. I can certainly recommend Kylie as someone who is willing to work outside the box and offer help and guidance.” August 1, 2009

Gavin Armstrong, Chief Financial Officer
Kylie’s Top Qualities: Expert, High Integrity, Creative
“Kylie is a great person to bounce ideas off and provide guidance throughout the entire career management process.” August 2, 2009

Bruno Conti, National Banking Manager

Kylie’s Top Qualities: Personable, Expert, High Integrity
“I have engaged Kylie to advise me on the things that I should be doing to advance my career. I find Kylie to be most professional, technically very competent, very easy to deal with, and generally a very good sounding board, I would have no hesitation in recommending Kylie to any professional concerned with career growth.” August 2, 2009

Martin Shanahan, Partner

Kylie’s Top Qualities: Good Value, On Time, Creative
“I retained Kylie to assist with a critical project involving a major client after Kylie had discussed possible ways to enhance our service delivery. After agreeing to the approach, Kylie committed to a more than satisfactory timeline then beat it by days. The information provided is of high quality. The thought processes underpinning the work provided, demonstrated a clear understanding of my needs and ultimately the needs of my client. Kylie was cost effective, and my colleagues and I will definitely continue to use her services. We will recommend Kylie to colleagues requiring similar assistance. An outstanding job done with good humour and precision. Commercially savvy. Excellent service.” February 13, 2007
