Is the toughest part of your job the ‘people’ bit? Do you wish you could better deal with the communication and workplace challenges you face?

Hi, I’m Leah Mether and I help people get out of their own way with the development of soft skills (which are really hard).

I work with leaders, executives and employees who want to improve their communication, self-management and personal effectiveness. 

With my direct, straight-shooting style I can help you and your team:

+ communicate effectively under pressure
+ manage yourself at times of stress
+ overcome self-doubt
+ remove roadblocks 
+ defuse conflict and deliver feedback
+ lead with compassion through challenges and change

What are ‘soft skills’?

Don’t let the name fool you; soft skills are not easy. They’re the transferable interpersonal skills and personal attributes that make someone good to work with, not just good at what they do.

Skills like communication, emotional intelligence, resilience, mindset, empathy, leadership, collaboration, public speaking, networking, time management and adaptability.

Soft skills are crucial for personal and career success, yet are often more difficult to master than ‘hard’ job-specific technical skills. The good news is they can be taught and developed, as long as you’re willing to learn.
