Learn How

There are bad or unhealthy ways of managing stress and burnout.

These lead to:
❌ fatigue that isn’t fixed with rest, 
❌ unhealthy conflict,
❌ always feeling behind,
❌ perceived as unapproachable and, therefore, not fully informed,
❌ bad mental health and overall wellbeing,
❌ unemployment.

There is also significant research that suggests that most leaders (approximately 90%) lack self-awareness of their impact on others. Stress and burnout often decrease a person’s ability to recognise their impact.

Burnout vs Stress

Understanding the difference between Stress and Burnout.

Why it is important!


Stress is something we all experience and is actually a healthy part of life.

Eustress is the ‘good stress’ that we feel when we are excited and engaged with a challenge. It is also what gets us out of bed in the morning to go to work, as we expect our hard work will result in being paid for it.

Distress is the ‘bad stress’ which develops due to a perceived (real or imagined) belief that we no longer have the resources, skills and support we need to do our work. If this continues over a long period of time, it can lead to ‘burnout’.


The World Health Organisation (WHO) describes burnout as an ‘occupational phenomenon’ and has been classified this way in the 11th edition of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11).

Burn-out is a syndrome conceptualised as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed. It is characterised by three dimensions:

1. Feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion;
2. Increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one’s job
3. Reduced professional efficacy.”

(WHO, Dec 2023).

If you have been experiencing stress at work for some time, and relate to any of the 3 dimensions, you may be experiencing burnout.

Client Testimonials

Margie recently ran a workshop for the Multicap Group where 70% of our middle and senior leaders with agreed that this experience had provided them with clear insights in developing their leadership skills. We receive this type of feedback every time Margie engages with our leaders and is why we would recommend her and the services she offers. We have also engaged Margie for executive coaching on a number of occasions and she adds great value in that area as well.

Joanne JessopGroup CEO Multicap

I recently completed Margie’s program and would recommend it to any leader at a roadblock in their career who is wondering how to make the right next step. Her program helped me think holistically about what is important in my life and understand where my work fits in. It gave me new insights into the critical things I need to look for in any role to be successful. Margie's deep commercial experience also showed through, in her practical advice.

Jenny PurdieAsset President, BHP

Margie was engaged over 12 months to work with several executive team members to enhance the individual and the executive team’s performance. Within a short period of time, the changes she was able to help leaders achieve was noticed by the CEO, executive team peers, and direct reports. What set’s Margie apart is her ability to help leaders to reconceptualise problems in an entirely different way. She pushes leaders to rethink what is possible and set clear, realistic plans to achieve goals. I would not hesitate to recommend Margie for one-on-one executive coaching or working with executive teams.

Richard SmallcombeGeneral Manager - People and Capability, Visionstream (ex Rio Tinto)

Margie is assisting The Business Depot to enhance our culture, improve performance and develop our communication and leadership skills. Margie’s communication style is very adaptable, clear and considered. Margie embeds herself in the business so that she can really understand what makes the team tick. When coaching one on one - Margie creates a safe environment that is fully inclusive. Her coaching style is welcoming and structured. Holding us accountable is key to personal and team success and Margie does this in a very approachable way without compromising on expectations.

Anna ChipperfieldGeneral Manager - The Business Depot

Before I worked with Margie I couldn’t articulate my plan and lacked confidence in my ability to lead. Margie is very honest and pragmatic with her advice, easy to talk to which makes it quick to establish a rapport. I now have clarity around my career plan, financial goals and more confidence in who I am and how to lead my team.

Tanya VianoLeader QGC Shell

Margie is a wonderful person who provides great support and advice in career development and professional achievement. Her approach is innovative and effective. I highly recommend her.

Anthony QuinManaging Director - Somerset International

Margie is brilliant at working with individuals to identify their passions and put in a plan in place to maximise their potential in any work situation. I have witnessed Margie successfully working with a number of senior executives and leaders to make their next career move, that better reflects their passion and effectively utilises their skill set. I would not hesitate to use her services again.

Angela Tillmannsprevious CEO, CPL

We worked together increasing emotional intelligence, self-awareness, and confidence to build important professional networks for future opportunities. I was surprised how quickly we achieved the goals set in the plan. What made me a fan of Margie was her remarkable ability to hold you accountable to your values & purpose, but also to ask the right questions to elicit deep self-reflection which ultimately led to positive change. I attribute a lot of my success in gaining clarity & progression in my career to Margie.

Sally CallieTriple Olympian & Educator at Brisbane Girls Grammar School

The coaching process with Margie has helped to identify and communicate core values, learn how to approach tough decisions, set performance targets high for ourselves and others in the team, expand self- awareness, and pay attention to the self-talk. We’ve even learnt to start our leadership meeting with mindfulness. Margie has helped us as a team navigate that journey. I recommend her to any organisation on a pathway of growth.

Kerri MayGeneral Manager - Bickerton Masters

Before I met Margie, I lacked focus and did not have a coherent plan to achieve my goals. Following my sessions with Margie I feel that I have a clear pathway to achieve my goals that is flexible enough to respond to new challenges I experience along the way but is still robust enough to help me achieve my short-term and long-term goals. I couldn’t rate her more highly.

Fiona McDougallGeneral Manager - Work Winning, Ventia

Prior to my program with Margie, I had a mindset that manifested into unproductiveness and dissatisfaction. Margie helped me identify what was causing this mindset, reframe my view, and allow me to become productive and satisfied again.

Seth GrantleyCOO - Multicap

I am so thankful for my time with Margie. She is an incredible leadership coach who is truly passionate about the work she does. I highly recommend getting in touch with Margie if you are wanting to progress your leadership career and gain valuable skills to add to your professional tool box.

Rebecca BrewsterGeneral Manager - Rizon

From our first session, it was clear that Margie was not just any coach. She has a deep understanding of the intricacies of leadership, from the psychological shifts required to the practical skills needed to lead a diverse team effectively. Through her coaching, I began to reflect on my approach, challenge my pre-existing beliefs, and adjust my mindset to be more aligned with my new role. From communication techniques to conflict resolution, and from delegation to motivation, I felt equipped to handle the challenges that came my way. Today, I lead with more confidence, clarity, and conviction, thanks to Margie.

Brooke MillsHead of E-Commerce - MxStore

Margie has been a great coach over the last 12 months, working with me to identify my strengths, set boundaries, find new thinking and ways of working, set short, medium and longer term goals and motivated me to take the steps necessary to be more successful and aligned. Her style was encouraging, engaging, and honest and she had a wealth of knowledge, expertise and experience to share which was well grounded. I valued our time together and would recommend Margie’s coaching to other managers and leaders looking for both personal and professional growth.

Margie's Story

Why Us?

I have been where you are. I was burnt out. Juggling my work, study, raising two step-sons, and my close relationships led to me feeling overwhelmed most of the time. I turned to chardonnay and worked longer hours as my coping strategy. This led to me feeling even more fatigue, negative self-evaluation for drinking too much, and problems in my most important relationships. In short, I had to find a new approach.

The irony was this was all happening while I was studying to become a Psychologist in the workplace, so I knew what I was doing was unhealthy. I had no excuse.

What turned things around for me was getting my letter from the Psychology registration board, saying I was now a registered Psychologist, free to start working with clients. As I read the letter, I felt shame and an imposter. If I was to help other leaders improve their well-being and their workplaces, I needed to start with myself first. My first step, was to stop drinking. In November 2023, I hit my 5-year anniversary of being alcohol-free. And I have never looked back.

My next step was a deep dive into leadership wellbeing research, which lead to creating my first evidenced-based coaching program, that has continue to get incredible results for leaders and leadership teams. It was so so successful, I wrote a book about it!  My book and programs have proven to help so many other leaders move out of unhealthy strategies and habits to be resilient, confident, high-performing, happy, healthy leaders.

My hope is you will join me and others experiencing similar challenges to you in my next private group program.

Don’t just take my word for it – read what my clients have had to say!
