Leanne Holdsworth

Auckland, NZ

Leanne is committed to a future where work environments support human beings to operate with open hearts and authenticity, where they are growing and leaving work at the end of the day fulfilled. She does this through the human centered cultural transformation programmes she runs as well as through the Mindset Transformation programme she leads in New Zealand and Australia. Some of the questions she is interested in are: “What are the conditions required within organisations for human beings to thrive?” and “What are the macro societal conditions that allow organisations to create this?”, and “How do we enable personal leadership to be experienced by everyone?”, “What enables humans to experience freedom from limiting mindsets?” and “How do we collectively raise consciousness so that we are creating a fair and just future for all?”

She is the author of the book A New Generation of Business Leaders and has spent 15 years advising organisations across the public, private and not for profit sectors in sustainability strategy and leadership.

Leanne holds a Bachelor of Commerce and a post graduate qualification in public policy. In the past few years she has studied the rise of deliberately developmental and human centered organisations around the world and in 2017 trained at the Barry Wehmiller Leadership Institute in St Louis around how to create organisations where people are at the centre (inspired by their CEO, Bob Chapman, author of Everybody Matters: The Extraordinary Power of Caring for Your People Like Family).

Auckland, New Zealand is where Leanne calls home, and when she is not working, she is spending time hanging out with her family, reading or practicing yoga.
