I'm Andrea Neil, and I’m deeply inspired by transformational leadership development. With over two decades of international soccer (football) experience as an athlete, captain, administrator and coach, including five FIFA Women’s World Cup tournament appearances, I bring a wealth of expertise to my work.

My formal studies in Human Kinetics and advanced coaching and leadership studies in Italy and Holland have equipped me with a deep understanding of human performance, psychology and leadership. 

Drawing from my extensive life experiences, I've developed The Coaching Compass.  This methodology for leadership development is firmly rooted in transformational principles and places a strong emphasis on self-awareness as a catalyst for growth. Taking a holistic approach allows me to address interconnected topics such as high performance, organizational culture, psychological safety, decision-making, communication, mental health, team building & more. 


My vision is for leadership to transcend traditional roles, embodying elevated purpose, empathy, integrity, and a commitment to bettering our world.


I am passionate about fostering growth and excellence and empowering individuals to become ethical, purpose-driven leaders.
