I'm Alice Schaefer

CEO and Founder of Empowered by Alice

Clarity    Connection    Empowerment


Empowered by Alice helps ambitious individuals unlock their full potential and lead an empowered life.

It came about after Alice Schaefer spent 20 years working for large health organisations around the world. Daily, Alice was surrounded by patients suffering from chronic illness and staff dealing with burnout, anxiety, and general overwhelm.

It became alarming to Alice that so many people, including herself, had lost touch with who they were and what they wanted from life.

It was her own diagnosis with a chronic illness that became the final call for Alice to create change, and that’s why she developed the Empowered Living Framework.

The Empowered Living Framework is a new and unconventional approach to developing leaders, transforming cultures, and improving organisations. 

Alice delivers her work to individuals and organisations through:

  • Business By Design Partnerships
  • Individual Coaching Programs
  • Retreat A Little Leadership & Well-being Escapes

Her signature program, Business by Design, is a holistic approach to organizational development that addresses the underlying beliefs, values, and systems that drive behaviour and shape the organization's culture.

Finding that inner connection again is important to fulfil us as human beings. Because when we are fulfilled, we can show up differently in the world, with our partners and children, at work and with ourselves.

Business by Design

The Business by Design approach addresses two key problems entrepreneurs face: employees losing sight of the company's vision and burnout from not utilising individual strengths.

Business By Design is an unconventional approach to building teams and transforming culture and helps entrepreneurs discover the true talents and gifts within the team whilst enabling their business to overachieve on sales targets with greater ease and fulfillment.

Self-care is important.

I believe that you can have a successful career, be a great partner, parent and still be connected to your inner-self but not if you don’t make time to recharge your internal batteries and listen to what your inner voice is telling you.

Client Testimonials

Annie H., SA

My weekend away in beautiful Port Elliot could not have come at a more opportune time. Slightly burnt out and tempted daily by an almost irrepressible urge to tell my customers where to go, the lure of a weekend away in a glorious old estate in quirky Port Elliot was just the ticket.
