Dr Louise Mahler

Australia - Vic

Rarely does one find a powerhouse of academic insight, observational excellence and dynamic delivery to shed new light on a topic that's critical to us all.

Louise's inimitable style and deep insight in her field are shared in keynotes and coaching internationally, where high-stake leadership beckons.

A foremost expert in body language, voice and emotion, Louise has a PhD in Business, and degrees and masters in Organisational Psychology as well as Music.

Her skills as a Master Practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming pull together her academic study and years of professional performance on the European opera stage to put her in a league of her own.

In the process of completing her award-winning PhD, Louise observed a 'missing ingredient' in corporate leadership around the unsung wisdom of the mind-body-voice connection she calls Vocal Intelligence. These blended skills bring powerful observation that elicits discernible, positive

change and together with an understanding of the psychology behind high-stake engagements and the structures for handling emotion, combine to build the Mahler Method.
The Mahler Method teaches you the vital techniques to 'be heard' in hostile environments.



The age of diversity and inclusion is upon us. We need women on board and we need men to help. This brings its own a challenges. Firstly we have to accept that the notion of in-visibility is a natural part of human behaviour. Whether we accept it or not, is our choice!

This session is about vibrating your energy to break down the barriers, to be clever about how you engage with hard conversations and give of yourself without hesitation. You will learn the 5 key barriers, how we are all responsible and the key feedback skill to use every day to make change.
We need everyone out there, being seen, heard and felt in everything we do with gusto, assertion and a positive mindset.

The Currency of Trust

We are fast entering the era where people demand authenticity and trust. Technology is helping, but also hindering and there is no replacing interpersonal excellence. Financial Services have been through hell and rebuilding trust and the confidence is critical for the road ahead.

Dr Mahler will share her ground breaking, highly interactive and practical skills for building credence and, at the same time, work towards healing shattered identities in the industry. You ARE the person we need and in this session you will learn to bring your very best to every engagement and handle emotional interactions with professionalism and kindness.

Takeaways include the key process for handling emotional situations and the corresponding kinesics that go with a trust-engagement, the basis of a bright and rewarding future.

The Missing Ingredient of Leadership

The future is steaming ahead on a track of continued digital innovation, but 'mind the gap'. Between the fast moving juggernaut of change is the ever present need to get your message across and there a widening chasm of need for interpersonal skills that inspire and engage. Leaders, salespeople, consultants, anyone handling high-stake engagement needs this NOW!

As a thought leader in the field of presence and influence, Dr Mahler investigates body language, vocal psychology and the patterns of conversation. Her deep insight and extensive experiences bring life to palpable real-life examples and impersonations that will change the way you think, act and speak for the better.

In this highly interactive and always hilarious session, you will develop an understanding of your physical and vocal options as an integral part to motivating and inspiring others. You will have an opportunity to diagnose your own habitual patterns, build new skills and belly laugh along the way.
Her distinctive style is full of energy, humour and a positive regard for the changes possible in all of us. This powerhouse of observation drives palpable change for the individual, the group as a whole and has potential to change a nation. Let's get started!

Women in Leadership

In an orchestra the violin and the double bass play very different roles. They are both the same shape, they are both string instruments, they are both played with a bow, but you would never mistake one for the other. Similarly, in the orchestra of life, a man's voice is lower and louder than that of a woman. However, it also defines the current-day perceived voice of leadership in western culture. So, how do you, as a woman, compete?

A lack of authenticity is unthinkable. Bringing who you are to what you do is critical and anything less isn't about being fully 'you'. Vocal Intelligence is a different, unique and award-winning study that works from the inside out. It recognises that acquiring a presence of leadership is not solved by inauthentic skill acquisition and it does not pander to the common skill of mistaking aggression for power. You CAN develop, expand, adjust and improve the way you present yourself to the world through the use of your voice as an expression of self. Remarkably, when you do, not only will you increase your influence and effectiveness, but you will become more authentic in who you are and how you relate to others.

The violin and the double bass both play pivotal roles in an orchestra and the musicians who play them have to realise that they have different, but equally valid tools at their disposal. Learning to play the instrument is the key!
