Clint Seares is a Performance Coach and Motivational Speaker and Director and Founder of The Way Ahead Academy.
My mission is to support people, families, and teams to meet the challenge of change. Change can occur either quickly and dramatically or we feel we need to change but can not find the catalyst to create the change needed. Both types of change can have a major effect on our self-worth.
Previously I was an Officer in the Australian Army where I deployed with my troop on operational service. Since leaving the Army, I have maintained senior leadership positions at both the corporate and project levels before starting The Way Ahead Academy in August 2015.
While consumed with PTSD after leaving the Army, I eventually became separated and divorced: resulting in me being a single dad to two amazing girls, financially devastated and looking for any opportunity to escape my shame and hide from my feelings. I found my passion while recovering from PTSD and found that I became freer to live life with passion and purpose; reconnecting with my girls and releasing myself from limiting beliefs regarding security results from financial income. I became energised by coaching individuals and groups, building their internal resources and overcoming their mental barriers; resulting in both massive improvements in moral and productivity in the workplace and significant personal change.
I have been mentored and trained by the very best in the industry; allowing me to provide my clients with the best level of service. My mentors include:
When not enjoying working with awesome client’s smashing their goals, I spend quality time with my two girls, Anna (9) and Sasha (7). I have a strong affinity to the sea and I recharge in my downtime by either sailing or kite surfing somewhere in the world.
I am fortunate enough that I can give back to the community through volunteer work with the Veterans Centre and Parents Beyond Brake up.
