The Adversity Advantage - Book Interview

Clau is interviewed by her book coach Kath Walters about why she wrote her book The Adversity Advantage. Hear the story of the title of the book and how Clau works with her coaching clients, doing exactly that: Turning adversity into advantage.

See the video of the interview in which Kath asks Clau these 3 questions:

1. What is your book about?
2. What prompted you to write a book?
3. What are the five lessons you learned from writing this book?

Enjoy the video!

Woohoo! Stoked to have my article in the September 2019 issue of LATTE, The Business Chicks Australia Magazine.
I hope you enjoy the read!

Very excited that my article “The Performance Shift” is included in the 100th issue special of the CEO Magazine – March 2020 edition!

Breakfast event at IECL Sydney “How to create your unique coaching approach”

Tuesday 19 November 2019

When my colleague and friend Yu Dan Shi and I had exchanged and read each other’s book, we thought to share both our stories with our peers/Alumni’s at IECL. We are both passionate about helping high achievers approach and optimise their leadership roles, but tend to look from different perspectives. Having conversations about how we help our clients/coachees with our own unique approach enriched our thinking and we hope to have inspired other coaches to think about what their approach is. It makes it so much easier if we can articulate well what it is we stand for as a coach, and it makes it easier for our clients to refer others to us. The icing on the cake was the great turnout and engaged conversation with the coaches in the audience. Looking forward to next conversations!

Book launch event

Monday 6 May 2019

For years I wanted to write a book but couldn’t quite decide on the best topic. Until my good friend and peer Megan Tait pointed out to me that sharing my insights and learnings from turning adversity into an advantage, would also help other people. It is a story I know so well from both my own experience and from the leaders I work with in my executive coaching practice. We all face adversity in life and business, and sometimes it’s not clear how that could actually increase our adaptability, resilience and decision making. It is my intention that the book is helping you to do just that. I was approached by Kath Walters, my book coach, in December 2018 if I wanted to write a book, and 5 months later everything fell into place. I was lucky enough and very thankful  to gather an amazing team around me to actually make it happen. Here are some pictures of the launch event and celebrations. I hope you enjoy them!
