LIANE KEMP

Liane Kemp is an accredited coach. She founded Kemp Street Partners to utilise her skills and passion for coaching to help individuals embrace and manage the challenges around them to be the best that they can be. She brings an interpretive lens to help clients (individuals or teams) understand where they are and uncover their aspirations and potential. She combines the latest research with many years of business leadership experience, to help clients create a learning agenda that fits their unique learning styles, fits into their busy daily schedules and brings lasting results. Then she supports them to move forward seamlessly as they adopt new approaches and experiment with new behaviours.

In addition to her coaching and team facilitation work, Liane is a highly experienced instructional designer. She was the Partner who built and then led the professional development function for global executive search firm Spencer Stuart for more than eleven years (six of which were on the worldwide management team, five of those based in the USA).

Her clients are located in Australia, Japan, Greater China, Singapore and India and her workshops span topics such as vision and strategy creation and implementation, assessment, leadership development, career coaching, coaching others, and interpersonal and team effectiveness. Her clients include consultants, senior executives, Chief Executives and Board members, from industries as diverse as education, telecoms, consumer goods, not-for-profit, the Arts, financial and professional services. She is largely agnostic as to industry or function as her view is that “the key to the door of growth and lasting behavioural change is a restlessness with the status quo”.

Liane’s coaching work goes beyond performance and career-based coaching to help executives understand the origins of life patterns that my be hindering behavioural change. She works with leaders, who are bombarded with the relentless demands of today’s business environment, to find sustainable strategies to create time and space for reflection, and offers them a safe place in which to reflect, and test ideas.

Prior to her move into professional development, Liane spent many years in search and assessment across Asia Pacific. She also has a significant business and line management background, having managed the nutritional products division of what is now known as Fonterra, including leading the day to day management of a US-based joint venture.
