Creating leaders and environments where GROWTH is the focus
Tracey demonstrates a unique ability and skill set to work with organisations creating a collaborative environment where divergent opinions can be canvassed in a safe process, leading to exploration and alignment of thinking; whilst often challenging traditional philosophies and methodology that can limit potential to achieve unique and optimal outcomes.

The Stuff That Binds Us Together to do Extraordinary Work
by Tracey Ezard
Trust and collaboration are essential for real innovation to flourish. Glue reminds us of our essential nature as human beings – as co-creators – with an inbuilt need for deep connection and continuous learning.
Yet fear of failure and judgement often throttle the creative insights and knowledge-sharing that are so essential to the long-term success of companies today.
Glue not only recognises this problem, but opens a vital dialogue that leaders can continue with their people to find their own unique answers (now that’s collaboration!)
Warning, after reading and applying the ideas in this book, your teams may never be the same again!
Glue gets us looking above conventional teams to the approach more fitting the 21st Century. Honour this 21st Century tribe culture, and watch your company become extraordinary!

Key to Success-
Is the Learning Intelligence of Your Organisation Getting You SHIFT?
We need to shake the status quo and the comfort zone and get moving! Whether we're focusing on strategy, continuous improvement, risk or simply staying ahead of the game, having a mindset that is about growth, learning and possibilities is vital.
A compelling space and energy in our organisations can make or break a thriving environment. Understanding the things we can do that create a place that people want to co-create and collaborate together is key to the success of an organisation with traction. It's not all about physical space, it's also about the vibe! Do you have the BUZZ?
It's usually the dialogue (or lack of) that kills innovation and collaboration. Dynamic dialogue that builds connections and the ability to create an atmosphere of learning is required in the complexity of today's world. We need more dialogue that empowers people to feel connected, valued and make the change and transformation required.
Leader and Organisational Programs
Bespoke design that meets the needs of your organisation
Have you FLIPPED your leadership?
FLIP LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
Complex times require leaders to shift their staff and transform not only their thinking about WHAT needs to be done and HOW, but also the WHY. The core skill for individuals: staff and their leaders is their ability to LEARN.
Tracey Ezard works with leaders to increase their ability to lead the learning and build their own and others’ three intelligences: EMOTIONAL; STRATEGIC AND LEARNING. These skills enhance a leader's ability to co-create and collaborate with their staff to effect change and transformation. The three crucial components to these intelligences are: MINDSET, ENVIRONMENT and DIALOGUE.
Using collaborative visual communication and strategy tools, leading edge models, and focussing on the three crucial components to a thriving continual improvement culture, Tracey works with leaders to enable them to great real shift in their teams.

Educator and Facilitator
Developing leaders and staff through dynamic sessions with a focus on application of learning, shift and transformation in the real world of their work.
Facilitating the collaborative discussion and harnessing direction, action and outcomes.
Supporting leaders in their quest for growth
Collective wisdom and building collective capacity are the way of the future.
Creating this within our staff learning community is the springboard to growth.
Getting a good sense of how strong our buzz is (Is it a buzz? A hum? Or are those just crickets chirping?) can be a challenge when we’re sitting in the middle of it. To gauge what is going on we need to sit back and reflect on ourselves and our school.
‘The Buzz’ Diagnostic will guide your reflection.
It asks about three core areas of learning intelligence: mindset, environment and belief.
Mindset. The way people in the learning community think.
Environment. The actions a learning community takes to stimulate professional learning.
Dialogue. The quality of the conversations learning communities have.
In each of these areas, there are some questions about how you feel as an individual educator, and how you feel as an educator within your school community.
When you’ve finished the Buzz Diagnostic, you will receive an individual report with feedback on important actions for your professional reflection practices.
If you are in a leadership position, you will receive a separate report with specific feedback for your school’s professional learning community.
So, what’s The Buzz at your school like?
Estimated time to complete - 10 minutes
All individual reports are kept confidential and are not shared with your school. If your school is participating in a whole school diagnostic, they will receive an aggregate summary report, however individual responses will still be kept confidential as your responses will be collated with feedback from other staff.
