Deptartment of Immigration and Border Protection

Dr Pauline Lee has been working with the Department of Immigration and Border Protection for approximately 18 months. In that time she has proven herself to be the consummate professional especially in the field of Executive coaching and organisational change. Pauline has developed and been a key component in the delivery of a significant cultural change strategy across my division. This strategy has touched every staff member and been heavily developed by the staff through the support and mentoring of Pauline.

One of Pauline’s key strengths is her uncanny ability to connect with her audience and the teams always provide positive feedback to me after their interactions. If I face a tough staff and/or Executive dynamic in my next organisation – I will be seeking Pauline’s advice.

Court Network Inc. logo“I have found working with Pauline one of the most important decisions of my professional life. My conversations with her start with me hazily looking through a long lens, and end with whatever challenge I have been facing coming into this incredibly sharp focus. She has deepened my understanding of what leadership means for me, and encouraged a confidence to trust my instincts as well as style.

Most important of all, Pauline has taught me the power of reflection. Not to fear looking back for what I might see and feel anxious about not having done well. But to enthusiastically look at the “hard bits” and know that whatever I find are the pearls of the coaching process.”

“Pauline has been working with my executive team for over 3 years to help strengthen team and individual performance during a period of transformational change in CIOG. She has designed and facilitated workshops and coaching programs that addressed issues of leadership and team effectiveness within the context of real business issues.

The results of these efforts have been positive; there has been significant improvement in how the team collaborates, on the quality of working relationships, and on team processes. The team now engages in more open discussion of the 'undiscussables' and jointly takes responsibility for team goals. She has coached several executives in my organisation and has the ability to maintain confidentiality with each leader and prevent leakage of personal information from one session to another.

Pauline approaches her work in a non-threatening way and has the ability to engender trust with others. She takes time to understand the individual and the dynamics of the group she is working with. She is practical and her work is focused on vital outcomes for the organisation.”
