Strategic coaching and consulting for arts leaders and organisations

Whether you’re an organisation or an individual, success in the arts and creative sector takes being strategic, reflective and resourceful.

At Albany Lane we offer workshops, one-on-one coaching and strategic consulting aimed at helping you and your organisation thrive.

If you’re in the arts, cultural or creative industries, we can tailor a program to whatever issues you are facing. 

Based on more than 20 years experience in arts management and policy development, we believe that three areas of focus are critical to success.

Developing authentic leaders

Becoming a great leader takes knowing yourself and your values, communicating powerfully, and inspiring and motivating others.

Whether you’re looking to further your own career or provide leadership development for your team, we can design a program specifically for your needs.

Building confidence and resourcefulness

Resilience, confidence and resourcefulness are critical to both personal career success and building a robust organisation.

 

Working with Albany Lane helps individuals and teams to become energised and open, build momentum, and address challenges head-on.

Becoming strategy-focused

No matter what your role is, being aware of the bigger picture increases your value to your organisation and makes you more effective.

Our programs focus on embedding strategic thinking in you and your team to enhance your capabilities around designing and implementing your vision, overcoming obstacles, uncovering opportunities and preparing for growth.
