Are you stuck in the limbo between overworking and making a real difference at work?

It’s a trap too many talented professionals fall into.  The story goes like this…

You’re promoted because you’re great at what you do. But no-one tells you that management is NOT just a higher-paying version of your previous job. Now you’re responsible for what other people do…and fail to do. You’re constantly overloaded. You’re buried in admin. 

Where you once dreamed of making a difference, you now dream of making it through the day in one piece.

Phew. It’s tough. But here’s the good news. All of this can change.

You can be a force for positive change.Learn how in Zenith Retreat.

Hi! My name is Eleanor Shakiba.

I’ll be your personal guide in the Zenith Retreat Bali Retreat. I’m a leadership trainer, success coach and positive psychology consultant. I work with people who want to make a difference, teaching them to speak out and stand out in ways that change the world. I’ve been helping talented people build high-impact leadership for over 30 years. I’d love to help YOU next.


I've always been involved in helping people learn.

I started my career as the playwright and founding director of The Magic Story Players Theatre Troupe. This was a children's educational theatre company. We were on the road for 5 years. That was fun, but also tiring. Eventually, I wanted a more stable life. So I got at job at the University of Sydney. There I discovered my passion for training and 'one to one teaching' (the term coaching didn't exist yet). I spend 20 years training and coaching university staff. But I'm a maverick. Working in a large organisation felt too contraining. So I decided to do my own thing. In 2006 I set up a business called Metamorphosis Consulting. Three years later I changed the name (oh the irony!) to Think Learn Succeed. Since then  I have:

  • Trained over 50,000 people across Australia
  • Coached 100s of positive deviants
  • Designed more than 90 positive psychology courses
  • Written a book
  • Produced over 100 youtube videos
  • Set up an online learning school


I'm a lifelong learner, with these qualifications

  • Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Social Anthropology
  • Graduate certificate of Adult Education
  • Master Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)
  • Trainer of Neuro Linguistic Programming
  • Graduate Diploma of Applied Psychology (Counselling)
  • Diploma of Positive Psychology
  • A wicked sense of humour and the ability to turn misfortune into wisdom


I've trained positive deviants in many iconic Australian businesses, including:.

  • Essential Energy
  • NIDA (National Institute of Dramatic Arts)
  • Sydney Opera House
  • Thales Australia
  • Telstra
  • The Iconic
  • Qantas
  • University of Technology, Sydney (UTS)
  • Waverley Council
  • Weight Watchers Australia
  • Westpac
  • Wollongong University


 It’s a transformation zone where managers become high impact leaders. 

By the end of Zenith, you’ll be leading with purpose, vision and impact. 

You’ll know how to activate team brilliance, so your people build legacies, not just results. 

You’ll be adept at using strengths-based coaching tools to amplify ‘positive resonance’ in your team. 

You’ll be skilled in the art of forward-thinking, so you can be a future-shaper and difference-maker. 

Plus, you’ll have a new network of inspiring and talented people. 

Reach your Zenith as a leader!

It’s time to STOP languishing and START leading.  

No more wasting away in the zone of overwork and under recognition. 

No more feeling unfulfilled and uninspired. 

Definitely no more playing small or hiding in the shadows.

 It’s time to begin thriving as a Zenith Leader. 

Your strengths will be amplified, your impact will be felt and your passion will be catalysed. You’ll be living with purpose, vision and positivity, creating a lasting legacy that extends beyond business and into the wider world.

All it takes is one decision. 

You can keep waiting for people to listen and be inspired. 

Or you can join Zenith Retreat and learn how to be an inspiring leader.
