Hey there. I’m Adele Sinclair, founder of Wellness at Work.

I’ve spent a majority of the last two decades working at the Australia National University (ANU) in professional staff management roles.

My experience includes:

  • Experience at ANU between 2002 and 2023 across three Schools
  • Over 25 years management experience in corporate, higher education and politics
  • Over 15 years experience as a professional coach providing leadership, management, and work skills coaching and training (concurrent with management career)
  • Experience in coaching professional and academic staff from four universities.
  • A Masters in Management (ANU)

Having an external provider with experience at ANU means the mentoring and training provided is kept external and confidential to your workplace yet is tailored to the ANU work environment and contextually relevant.
