Maree can be the person that empowers you to lead in a world of change

  • Developing the Human skills that Technology cannot replicate or automate

    These are the skills that will see you become highly sought after to lead, after many jobs are automated and disappear. 

  • Developing your self-leadership skills.

    Maree believes these specialist soft skills are the missing piece to empowered leadership today. They are the skills that see you leading yourself first because if you cannot do that, you cannot expect to lead others.

  • Becoming a difference maker in this new economy.

    As you develop and enhance the self-leadership skills that take you from what you need to DO to what you need to BE as a leader, you will confidently make decisions that make a very real difference.

  • Becoming a change leader, not merely a change manager

    You can ignore, resist or adapt to change. You can even try and manage it. The successful leader today will lead the change, working at its cutting edge. 

  • Embracing Digital Transformation

    Maree counteracts the fear-mongering about the impact of technology with pro-active ways you can engage with it to enhance the work of your organisation, leading to positive outcomes.

  • Developing Strategic Alliances.

    Maree assumes that your professional and industry specific skills are highly developed. As you engage in on-going education to remain at the cutting edge, however, she will work alongside your technical training experts, integrating leadership skills and development into that training.

What Maree's Clients Have To Say

We approached Maree Harris of People Empowered to assist us with our Professional Development program. Maree was fantastic in working with us to develop a ‘soft skills’ program and was more than willing to customise sessions to meet our needs. She made sure she understood the profession and the challenges for developing less-technical aspects of the CPA’s role in a busy workplace. Her delivery style is very engaging and she uses examples that we can all relate to in our own working lives to demonstrate her point. Maree’s sessions have been a welcome addition to our Professional Development calendar!

I have been to a few ‘Time Management’ workshops prior to Maree’s presentation. Utilising reference to associated research and a practical approach to professional aptitude, Maree’s presentation offered me an enormous opportunity to refocus my personal conduct and share practical tips with colleagues. I can confidently recommend Maree as a highly competent presenter on this important topic.

Business Development Manager, City of Greater Bendigo

In my last three positions, spanning nearly twenty years, I have found Maree to be an invaluable source of support and advice. She has long been exceptionally adept at sorting out knotty personal and interpersonal issues for staff on an individual basis. The accumulation of her knowledge and experience in this field is just one of the reasons for her capability as an expert advisor at an organisational level.

CEO, UFO Dispensaries, Ballarat

I am a firm believer that people come into your life when you need them most. Dr Maree Harris Ph.D, Australia’s leading soft skills specialist, has had an enormous influence on my life. At a time when I really needed some outside input, Maree launched a coaching group and selected people to participate in a pilot program. She took five people dissatisfied with their current career paths who were at their wits’ end. After much soul searching, brainstorming and guidance from each other, we left the program with direction in our lives and, more importantly, with a clear strategy. Maree has had an amazing influence on my career and life in general. Most immediately, however, after the program, I knew my days in accounting were over. I tentatively moved into marketing, initially helping accountancy firms with their marketing. Now I have a very successful business – B Well Connected -  where I assist a wide range of business owners to grow, expand or re-invent their businesses.
