At Cut Through, we address issues of leadership, engagement, high performance & wellbeing. We work with individuals, small groups or your whole community to develop coaching programs tailored to your specific needs.

By adopting a coaching approach we work side by side, shoulder to shoulder, to empower you to thrive professionally and personally. We are genuinely curious – this makes us responsive and able to tailor bespoke experiences; and enables us to build authentic relationships and understand what makes the people we are working with tick. 

Our ability to authentically communicate and motivate is one of the key factors behind our success. 

The name Cut Through came about because of our desire and ability to cut through the jargon, the politics and the other ‘stuff’ that holds people, teams and organisations back.

Check out our podcast The Habits of Leadership in which Dan & Tim engage with some of the world’s foremost experts in the fields of leadership, motivation, mindset, wellbeing and peak performance.

“They created immediate and lasting high-quality impact on a wide-ranging group of leaders from the Australian arm of our ASX20 listed company. The feedback was the highest for any external contributor over the past 7 years. I rarely provide recommendations, but I am delighted to do so for Dan Haesler and his team and would encourage you to explore how they can work with your organisation to improve individual and team performance.”

Tennis Square

“Through the Wellbeing program, I engaged Cut Through Coaching to educate and assist our coaching staff in understanding Growth Mindset – the research, it’s benefits and how to develop it for themselves and our aspiring tennis players. The response from the coaching staff was overwhelmingly positive, so much so, that we now plan to incorporate this education into our Parent and Player forums. Dan and Tim were highly engaging, informative and supportive at each step of the way. I have no hesitation in recommending them.”

Ben Robertson, National Wellbeing Manager, Tennis Australia

“Engaging, research based and practical learning – some of the best PL (professional learning) I’ve attended and provides real, tangible take-aways for practical application – short-term and long-term changes in practice. Fantastic for galvanising our leadership team. Thank you to Dan and Tim – wonderful to work with.”
