The Mindxcite® Story

Mindxcite® is a Leadership Development and Executive Coaching business that seeks to inspire leaders to understand and use mind-brain based science to improve themselves and their teams. We provide a safe environment to explore how changed thinking can create clarity and drive new perspectives. Personal growth is at the core of the coaching process.

We believe that the path to becoming an inspired leader is through ongoing personal development that creates high levels of self-awareness to be able to lead from a place of authenticity. Research into executive coaching has identified the benefits of coaching in raising leader’s self-awareness and promoting positive changes in behaviour that promote leadership performance and effectiveness. Executive Coaching Survey ’14 Evidence and Interaction - 9th Annual Report, © 2014 Sherpa Coaching

To stay in the forefront of the latest behaviour research we have incorporated into our coaching and training programs, relevant knowledge from psychology, applied neuroscience and interpersonal neurobiology. Understanding how your brain influences how you think, how you act and how you feel, is integral to the way you make decisions at all levels of your professional and personal life.

Carol Appleby ACC

Carol is a registered psychologist, with the Psychology Board of Australia, and a credentialed coach, Associate Certified Coach (ACC) with the International Coach Federation (ICF). She is a member of the Australian Psychological Society and the International Society of Coaching Psychologists.

Carol’s career has spanned over 30 years and involved three key professions - teacher, psychologist and coaching psychologist. She has held an executive position within the Department of Education and Communities, New South Wales, and understands the many challenges of managing a highly skilled group of professional psychologists. She has also held the position of Chairperson of a state chapter of a national association for counselling psychologists, the Australian Guidance and Counselling Association. In this role Carol experienced the many challenges involved in leading a professional organisation. The primary role of this organisation was in providing professional development and training for school based psychologists.

Carol is skilled at understanding people and their behaviour; what drives them to experience success and what can be stopping them from flourishing in their life. Leading an authentic life enables you to integrate your values and strengths to achieve a sense of wellbeing and joy.

Helping leaders and emerging leaders to get to this place is what Carol does best.

Carols’ background in psychology has given her a broad range of experience in working with others to help them to lead from their strengths and to achieve their personal and professional goals. She enjoys working with leaders who are ready to invest in themselves and to start taking the first steps to creating resonant relationships that will sustain them in their personal life and professional career.  Dissonant relationships drain energy levels, leading to unhealthy levels of stress that have a negative affect on performance. Resonant relationships create positive energy, which replenishes physical and emotional reserves to counterbalance the potential for burnout.

Carol has developed high level listening skills that enable her to hear what you are saying and what you are not saying. It is these skills that enable her to ask you the challenging questions that create clarity and new perspectives to help you align with your values, purpose and aspirational goals.

Carol has expert knowledge in: positive psychology, emotional intelligence, motivational theory, cognitive behaviour therapy, mindfulness based practices, resilience, stress management, communication, mindset theory, resonant leadership and interpersonal neurobiology. All of these factors can be integrated to assist both the established leader and the emerging leader to perform at their optimal level.
