For over twenty years, Dr. Christine McDougall has been the go-to confidant and strategic advisor for hundreds of intensely driven and highly successful men in business, providing them with a safe private space that allows them to deal with inner obstacles, away from a world that far too often still punishes men for showing any kind of vulnerability or perceived weakness in public. Her clients have gone on to create rich lives and loves and legacies.
Dr Christine was one of the global founders of the Coaching Profession in the 90's. She was the first non-USA Board member of the Global Board of the International Coach Federation (ICF) holding this role for five years, in her final year she was Vice President. She was the founding President of the Australasian ICF, setting up the Chapter system in Australia and around the world, and the first coach in the Southern Hemisphere to receive recognition of the highest standard of coaching, Master Certified Coach.
Christine has worked within the corporate, leadership, start-up and future of business space with 100% focus since 1998 – in the early days as a coach, then evolving to create and lead businesses, partner with teams worldwide and mentor leaders who are creating a whole new kind of world through business.
In 2013 she pitched 1-1 to Sir Richard Branson an idea around his book, Screw Business as Usual.
This pitch led to the creation of a world class event, Big Blue Sky, in 2015 and 2016, on the Gold Coast, designed to convene multi sectorial members of the community, plus a few provocateurs from around the world, to co-create solutions for the future of the city.
Her podcast, 2:23AM, interviews ambitious high achieving men on what it means to be a man in today's world. She covers topics such as vulnerability, shame, leadership, family, fatherhood, and the future of enterprise.
Her work with Type A men from around the world, is bringing them towards a higher level of vulnerability and wholeness. It is ground breaking and significant work in a world of increasing divisiveness and isolation.
