Hi, I’m Barbara Nixon, your Success and Leadership Coach, and I’m here to help you improve your mindset, maximise your productivity, and remove any blocks so you can get the results you really want (and deserve) in your business!

This is a place that’s completely dedicated to helping you grow and develop.

To get the most out your time so you’re achieving more without working any harder.

To give you the skills you need so you don’t have to second guess yourself anymore.

To improve your confidence, prime your mindset for success and stop you from getting in your own way over and over again.

And to help you get the results that you want and need.

Are you ready to get started?


“I have been working with Barbara for a while now and I love her style. Practical, pragmatic, challenging and supportive. She never fails to deliver words of wisdom or challenges that help drive personal and professional stretch. Her approach to coaching and her Leadership Toolbox are fantastic and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.”

Who am I anyway?

Barbara helps Business Owners and Leaders, get unstuck, improve their mindset, grow their confidence and maximise their productivity so they can get the success they really want.

After 20+ years in the People Development arena and helping hundreds of people achieve their potential, Barbara kept seeing amazing people holding themselves back and getting in the way of their own success.

As someone who has been there and worn the T-shirt when it comes to improving her own mindset, she’s now on a mission to help amazing people bust through their comfort zones, prime their mindsets for success and really step into their own power so they can achieve their goals.

After all life’s just too short to play small!

She does this through her one to one Coaching Programme, and her online programme (The Smash your own ceiling Academy), and she prides herself on teaching the small tweaks that can make MASSIVE results.

With a style that has been described as ‘Down to Earth’ ‘Fun’ and ‘Approachable’ – like ‘chatting to your friend but getting amazing results at the same time’ Barbara focuses on helping you get the results you want, in a way that’s right for you.

Barbara is also a speaker, the author of The Boss Hat, and has been featured in Addicted2Success,Thrive Global and the BBC.
