Link Success provides coaching to suit your desired learning outcomes. We leverage brain-friendly neuroscience evidence-based tools and strategies to support your learning journey.
Coaching is the glue to any of the Link Success programs to reinforce the key learning. Without reinforcement, 87% of your learnings may be lost within one month if you don’t use them.
Getting people to change is becoming increasingly important in our rapidly changing work environment. Change requires ongoing attention and a significant effort.
We need a lot more effort and attention for every new path we create. Any change or new habit takes a lot more energy in the form of attention (Jeffrey M. Schwartz, M.D. is a psychiatrist and researcher in the field of neuroplasticity).
Coaching can be:
- virtual or over the phone (tweak first bullet point)
- based on 1-1.5 hour sessions fortnightly or every three weeks
- comprehensive coaching reports are a part of the program capturing the topics, next steps and actions agreed
- 90-day coaching programs are recommended to focus on 1-3 core new habits to help you reach your desired goals.
Benefits = Measurable results
- An understanding of the brain’s ability to think, feel and behave in new ways to move from a “threat” state to a “reward” state to reach peak performance for longer periods of time and achieve a healthy work/life balance.
- The ability to navigate the change curve and effectively manage your ability to bounce back from obstacles by learning new ways to support your clients in brain-friendly ways.
- Strengthen your brain’s ability to focus on what is most important. Learning strategies to help extend your deep thinking – improving creativity/ problem solving and decision making.
Leadership Coaching with measurable results
Neuroscience of Leadership Coaching Programs: Do they actually work?
This was the question asked by Martin Wildsmith, responsible for leading DXC Technology’s Microsoft Business.
We recommend PRISM Behavioural Profiling to be a part of the initial coaching program.
Many clients find it helpful to engage with the profiling first to really understand how your biggest asset – your brain – works and how it connects with others who are similar and different to you.
Profiling enables participants to understand their underlying behavioural preferences and why they approach situations and individuals in particular ways.
This information allows you to consciously modify or adapt your behaviour to achieve the best results.
PRISM Brain Mapping profile tool
Uses a neuroscience-based approach to identify an individual’s ‘behaviour preferences’ by mapping brain activity in 8 behaviour dimensions and 26 key aspects of work preference. You receive a comprehensive report that you can leverage.
Feedback from clients
Committed, accountable and high energy are words that come to mind when thinking about Vannessa.
With change occurring in our commercial leadership team, I engaged Vannessa with the objective of increasing collaboration, strengthening our focus and improving elements of well-being such as resilience. I appreciated Vannessa’s unwavering personal accountability, providing regular coaching reports, ensuring alignment at all times and, importantly, holding myself and the team accountable throughout. It has been a pleasure to see the self-discovery and improved collaboration as a result of the neuroscience-based program.
The 1:1 coaching has been and continues to be, a highlight, helping our leaders be targeted with their continuous improvement and ongoing impact. Thank you, Vannessa!
Prue Ashleigh, HR Leader Australia and New Zealand at GE Healthcare
I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Vanessa to think about my leadership style, where I am strong, and what could make me more effective in my role.
Our leadership team started with group workshops, looking at our different leadership styles and how to get the most out of our team.
The program then progressed to 1:1 coaching, which was very practical and hands-on, helping me make physical changes to how I do things on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis to help me be more effective in the fast-paced, demanding environment of the corporate world today.
It was good to have someone hold me accountable to ensure that change becomes an ingrained habit rather than just a once-off activity.
Vanessa has great energy and is a pleasure to work with.
Rachael Richards, GE Healthcare Ultrasound Commercial Leader ANZ
It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Vannessa over the last year. Her insights are profound, and she is generous with her time and knowledge. She has helped me articulate my unique strengths and create strategies to use them to best effect within our leadership team.
Vannessa’s approach to coaching is structured and methodical, but it’s easy to connect with on a personal level.
I would recommend Vannessa for both individual and team engagements, as she is committed to finding strategies that resonate with each person she works with and keeps us all honest with the improvements we are striving to make!
Thanks, Vannessa, for your diligence and care.
Elizabeth Peacock, IT Business Analysis and Relationships Manager at Hearing Australia
Partnering with Vannessa at Link Success has provided valuable leadership and performance insights for me and team to drive the business forward towards our vision.
The insightful brain friendly questions and PRISM profiles have allowed me time to reflect, explore, plan and make informed decisions on how to move the business and leadership team forward. It was important to me as a leader to invest, develop and support my leadership team with brain-friendly, evidence-based models, behavioural profiling and coaching to help them to achieve their behavioural goal and embed their core learnings from the workshops. I strongly recommend working with Vannessa and her book REWIRE for SUCCESS.
Craig Tucker, Chief Information Officer, Yooralla (Disability Services VIC)
I have enjoyed and valued the 90-day coaching program and PRISM profile, reflecting on how to leverage my strengths, energy and time to focus on strengthening selected behaviours that add value to myself, my team and the organisation.
We are often on autopilot, operating fast; this program ignited a spark within me to reset, pull back, reflect on the key learnings, connect the dots and slow down by planning the steps to go faster and reach desired outcomes.
I have learnt from the valuable habit formation insights and trust the process Vannessa took me through. I would recommend it and do it again myself.
Chris Duffy, Technical Services Director, Trotec Laser Australia / New Zealand
Vannessa’s PRISM workshops and coaching enabled me to grow both professionally and personally. Supported throughout my 90-day program, I gained valuable insights and have come away with practical strategies to assist in developing my next level of growth. Her book REWIRE for SUCCESS is a helpful guide that compliments learnings and I highly recommend working with Vannessa.
Nick Veljanoski, Information & Cyber Security Manager, Yooralla (Disability Services)
When 95% of what we do is based on instinct and intuition, compared to 5% thinking led, we may as well take a moment to better understand how our biggest asset operates: our brain. In a non-assuming way, Vannessa uses a matter of fact, authentic and evidence-based approach to help individuals better understand themselves in their journey, in order to understand people, transform business results and create high performance teams. This creates a platform to do our best thinking, as we learn to identify, regulate and engage to drive outcomes.
After working with Vannessa, you will better understand yourself and will develop a unique framework, allowing you to operate from the ground-up and become the powerhouse that you are.
Frederique Dennison, General Manager at SixPivot (IT Consultancy).
Huge applause to Vannessa in translating neuroscience, from science fiction to science fact. Vannessa, I appreciate the pragmatic approach taken and your authentic style in making this a worthwhile journey for me to establish clear personal and career goals.
From a tool perspective, I must agree that working with the PRISM model is certainly next level (on steroids as you put it). The structure of this program was short enough to fit into my already full days but generated a significant amount of output for me to gain the much needed insights. Vannessa, the way you delivered my results by way of story-telling made it relatable and the way you connected the dots painted such a clear picture of my actual style versus how I flex and adjust based on my current situation.
So much more to say but some final words that I would like to share with the many leaders out there… It is of significant value, be it by chance or by design, to pause and reflect on where you are and where you would like to be. If this is something that can be done with the right professional support, then create the opportunity and make this investment in yourself for the sake of both your professional and personal circumstances.
Clive Lee Kim, Program Director, People Systems at The Australian Red Cross Lifeblood
I was recently lucky enough to benefits from a PRISM brain mapping behavioural profiling workshop, supported by a number of coaching sessions, all facilitated by Vannessa.
Vannessa was very easy to work with and demonstrated exceptional subject matter expertise throughout the process. She took time to translate the PRISM profile outputs into easy to understand language, and assisted in mapping the outputs to a DISC profile I had recently completed for work.
I’m especially grateful for the action planning that Vannessa assisted with, particularly given that I chose to focus the initial actions from the PRISM profile on non-work-related activities. I highly recommend Vannessa’s services for anyone wishing to gain a better understanding of the drivers for their behaviours, gain insights on which behaviours would benefit from adjusting, and to be held accountable to a detailed action plan for success.
Mark Fisher, Principal HR Systems Water Corporation
I highly recommend Rewire for Success and the Increase Peak Performance & Stakeholder Engagement Program to anyone considering how to improve their own performance or that of their professional contingent. Like many remote employees, having a less direct connection to my colleagues and stakeholders, I certainly found myself “adrift” in purpose and effectiveness.
The book, the program, and the coaching gave me the models and structure to make incremental and sustainable changes to get the best out of myself. As a result, I have an improved mindset and have grown in confidence both professionally and personally.
I am overwhelmingly grateful for the experience, especially Vannessa’s guidance and insights on this ongoing journey. Thankyou Vannessa!

My team and I did the 90-day group coaching program and we achieved new ways of working together and increased our productivity. The book Vanessa wrote, REWIRE for SUCCESS was also a great support in our development. I highly recommend the workshop, followed by the 90-day coaching program and the book to embed the key learnings and rewire your brains to improve your self-leadership potential.
Maggie Raguenes, Senior HSEC management systems, document control and writing functions. Glencore.
Working with Vannessa McCamley has delivered outstanding improvements across our overall business, financial results and people engagement. If you want to improve your performance as a leader and truly change your behaviour you need a coach. I recommend Vannessa as your coach!
Her programmatic approach improved my capacity as a Senior Leader to focus on the strategic growth of the business and work on areas that I was holding back my leadership team. The face to face coaching sessions has lead to a significant improvement in my relationships and alignment of my leadership team, as they were freed to collaborate better and leverage their strengths and capabilities.
The Program has provided me with new tools to improve problem solving and decision making. It has focused me to build a stronger culture and unlock opportunities to scale and intensify the leadership team of Eclipse. Despite what we have been told in the past we/you can change your behaviour and leadership style.
I am happy to share my personal results (as measured by an independent provider) to anyone committed to going on this journey. There is clear evidence the Neuroscience behind Vannessa’s leadership coaching program was effective and a smart investment.
For any professional who wants to take their leadership skills, emotional intelligence and business results to the next level, I would not hesitate to recommend engaging in Vannessa’s Neuroscience insights and tools to help you to achieve measurable outcomes.
Martin Wildsmith, Leader Microsoft ANZ at DXC Technology
I had known Vannessa for a few years professionally before engaging her as my business success coach. I am so glad I did! Every single meeting I came out stimulated, energised and inspired. Best of all, she made sure this was my journey, not hers. I think this is an absolutely critical point. You want a coach who is able to support you on your journey to what success means to you, not anyone else.
The biggest battles are often in our minds. And Vannessa has the skills and tools to help you make significant breakthroughs where you need them. Looking back now, I have a life that I absolutely love. I have a significantly more profitable business, a daily routine that really works for me, I sleep well at night and my personal relationships have flourished as well. Vannessa has been an integral part of this journey. If you would like to get more success, what are you waiting for?
Thomas Brand, Business Owner, Sharper Edge International
I was fortunate enough to have the chance to work with a coach as outstanding as Vannesa. The Neuroscience based Coaching Program help me understand and develop additional leadership strategies to further influence and connect with various stakeholders.
Vannessa’s knowledge, dedication and passion is evident in each and every session. Her clear and simple approach were key to achieving and maximising my desired outcomes.
Monica Villate Escobar, Content Marketing Manager, McCorkell
I have found Vanessa to be an engaging, focused and energetic professional who cares about her clients and motivated to see them grow and succeed. Her qualities make her an impeccable talent and expert in her field. The Link Success model guides you to have a deeper understanding of yourself, providing the right tools and understanding to effectively apply them.
Vanessa’s personalised approach to training and coaching is inspiring. The ability to tailor and connect methodologies to my individual understanding and way of thinking was effective. The outcomes resulted in a new understanding on how to plan, strategise and prepare for change. I highly recommend Vanessa and Link Success.
David Soden, IT Manager, Orix
I could not have predicted the last six months working with Vannessa would yield such outstanding results. Her guidance has provided clarity to align my personal goals to that of role and business, allowing a transformative output to work and leadership that is benefiting my team, boss and business stakeholders.
Vannessa’s knowledgeable, honest and supportive approach leads to finding the answer for yourself and contextualising in a way that enables effective understanding and application.
Her challenging the status quo and my own thinking fostered new understandings of how to assess, plan and effect change and leadership in a multitude of scenarios. It’s truly inspiring to know the progress one can achieve under Vannessa’s tutelage. If you have the opportunity to work with her and Link Success I highly recommend you take it.
Matt Stapleton, Group Account Director, McCorkell & Associates
I’ve been very fortunate to have been working with Vannessa since August 2016. As a member of the leadership team at M&a, Vannessa has been working with me on a regular basis across a wide range of professional and personal development programs.
Vannessa’s depth of knowledge, personal attention and ability to ask the right questions has been beyond invaluable. I consider myself a better leader, manager, mentor, employee and person due to her coaching and training sessions. It also greatly helps that she is one of the nicest and most genuine people you could hope to work with!
