I earned my stripes leading large teams in complex organisations and built quite a reputation for ‘doing business differently’.

Today, I work with Australia’s leading companies guiding leaders and their teams to identify and adopt tiny tweaks that make big differences.

To put it simply, I help leaders and their teams work.

My goal is to help evolve how leaders think, take action and relate to others during these turbulent times – how to do business differently if you like.

I can help you and your team:

  • Level Up your Leadership:  I help leaders have more impact: be more influential, more strategic and more productive.
  • Rethink Talent for Today: through consulting and mentoring, I work with leadership and project teams to rethink their approach to Talent.
  • People Change that Works: a proven leader in this space, my team and I work closely with HR leaders to design, develop and deliver organisational change strategies that engage, empower – and stick.

How do I help?

  • Coaching & Mentoring: B-Suite leaders to challenge assumptions and give them the confidence and space to level up their impact.
  • Facilitation: for mid and senior-level teams facing a challenge in how they work – identifying quickly where the true problems lie and helping individuals and teams to come together to solve them.
  • Project/Program Advisory:  increase the effectiveness of HR products & programs across the Talent lifecycle for employers and their vendors.

As a mentor and facilitator, I’m a bit playful, a bit challenging, very thoughtful and supportive.  I know what assumptions we need to tackle to get a different outcome, and I know that you don’t need to throw the past away to achieve a great future.

BoldHR™ were contracted to undertake a survey and focus groups to support a potential organisational change initiative. Both Rebecca and Erin were easy to work with and they provided good quality work and detailed reporting. I look forward to the opportunity to work with them again.

Rebecca was engaged to support the transition of our field team through structural change. Her experienced insights and expert facilitation skills enabled her to assist in furthering our culture of open communication whilst encouraging positive partnerships and an ongoing focus on shared outcomes. All team members appreciated her direct approach, relevant modelling and strong focus on trust in professional relationships. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to support any organization seeking professional, facilitative coaching and a strong contemporary leadership approach.

I was fortunate enough to meet Rebecca (Bex) Houghton while I was at Australia Post and her expertise, knowledge, humour and kind intent really left a great impression on me and when I decided to look for an executive coach to support me in my career journey, she first name that came to mind! Having her as a coach over the last 6 months has been a terrific privilege and what made the experience more incredible was that we wrote a list of actions I wanted to achieve by the end of our program and I'm proud to see with Rebecca's assistance - I ticked off all of them! Her guidance and her thoughts I will always have at the back of my mind when working on a day to day basis and someone that has an incredible impact on my career. Many thanks Bex - you're the best!

We will definitely continue to engage Rebecca for our future needs.

I've been looking for someone to work with for quite some time but it's not until attending Rebecca's Level Up event that I really had the courage to step out and step up. Rebecca has an amazing way of doing high level and bite size at the same time. She'll force you to think big from the beginning, and stay on track along the way. Generous with her time and rich with wisdom, every call, masterclass and group session with Rebecca is packed full of content and motivation to achieve professional growth no matter where you're at in your journey. Since joining the Level Up Mentoring Program, I've become more considered in my approach and open to greater outcomes. In this program I've made some incredible connections, broadened my industry knowledge and learned more about myself as a professional than would have been possible otherwise.
