Alexandra Egan (Author) “R.E.S.E.T Your Thinking” has a unique and extensive career working with organisations and people from all walks of life, including Federal and State Governments, the criminal justice system and various other social justice roles.
In 2008 I had the pleasure to work with Alexandra, as major stakeholders to establish a pre and post-release employment project in the Criminal Justice System. The model combined structured workplace learning and work-readiness programs. However, establishing relationships and connecting participants with major employment and industry stakeholders was a key strategy to improve employment outcomes for ex-offenders.
At the time Alexandra was working as a Prison Liaison Officer for The Department of Human Services (Centrelink). Her passion to create environments where people flourished and her ability to engage with others soon became apparent. Our strong partnership became a significant component for the success of the project. Through this involvement, numerous gaps, that overlooked the diverse issues facing this cohort, were identified, particularly as ex-offender transitioned to release and struggled to navigate their employment network obligations. Initially, Alexandra acknowledged the need to address these concerns, at a local level, recommending procedural changes and implementing strategies for change. Alexandra soon established an affiliation with managers, industry, stakeholders and participants and included everyone in the consultation process. As a result Alexandra successfully developed and launched a local justice reference group to enhance service coordination, improve participant’s well-being pre and post-release to the community and ultimately enhancing community safety. These initiatives were adopted and later rolled out nationally.
Following on from her success in the criminal justice system, Alexandra graduated from The Coaching Institute Melbourne and in 2015 founded and owner of her innovative business; Domino Effect Consulting and Facilitating. Alexandra is a lifelong learner – she is a certified Meta Practioner, accredited behavioural profiler, mindset strategist and behavioural coach. I can speak first hand for Alexandra’s impressive background working with community diversity, as well as her outstanding ability to work with individuals, businesses and organisations to build effective, efficient, productive, high-performing individuals and teams.
