Welcome to the Centre for Integrative Leadership
where the development of leadership excellence is our mission.
The past few decades have seen a wide variety of MBA degrees and other business school training courses flourish, all designed to develop and nurture leadership excellence. Despite this huge investment of time and capital, research indicates that leadership continues to be an area of great challenge for most people who undertake these roles. In fact, some leadership assessment organisations suggest that 60% of leaders fail.
Our experience informs us that most leaders struggle to acquire and implement the hands-on, day-to-day skills necessary to lead effectively in today’s current disruptive times. Attempting to lead in these circumstances can be extremely stressful and anxiety forming resulting in leaders operating in overwhelm.
Most executives, directors, managers and supervisors experience these conditions regularly, some on a daily basis.
While research informs us that some stress is positive for achieving desired outcomes, excessive or prolonged stress and anxiety can be harmful for both the leader, their direct reports and ultimately, the organization. In addition, this ultimately leads to overwhelm, poor staff morale and motivation, disengagement, below standard outcomes and less than favourable bottom line results.
If any of the above symptoms resonates with you or your organization, then we should talk. We look forward to your call!
The Centre for Integrative Leadership have provided professional services to the Australian College of Clinical Psychologists for several years. During this time Ron has offered reliable mentoring and coaching regarding the transition of the College from a small and largely ad hoc organization toward an integrated national entity.

Ron was the project leader for the implementation of a major finance improvement process undertaken by a large New South Wales public sector agency. An integral part of this process included the replacement of the existing Enterprise Resource Planning system (ERP). Our organization was the ERP implementation partner responsible for the functional and technical aspects of the project.
The Centre for Integrative Leadership assisted both my company and I with the provision of professional executive leadership strategy services. Ron’s dedicated approach and quality mentoring significantly contributed to the implementation of effective business strategies, the formalisation of suitable financial management systems and procedures, as well as addressing various statutory requirements.
I worked with Ron for 7 months and discovered daily that he delivered a friendly, competent, ethical and confidentail service. He used the latest supporting tools and technology to design and deliver our solution. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Ron and wouldn't hesitate to do so again should the opportunity ever arise.
I have had the privilege of collaborating with Ron Dolan in his work as a Professional Consultant and Coach. I am Familiar with his coaching roles with varied clients and as he evaluated and guided other coaches in their work.

Ron you are a champ!! Thanks for the insights and pearls of wisdom. I usually don't need help with "possibility thinking” and vision though it is obvious you are a creative, thoughtful and SUPPORTIVE consultant and coach in every sense of the word. I appreciate the energy you have shown me here.
