I have been fascinated by people and groups since I can remember. Being part of a large family and involved in a variety of workforce groups from sheep shearing, offices and nursing in my earlier career, I was very aware that leaders set the tone and impact strongly on group dynamics and productivity.
My career pivoted when I chose to follow a path toward organisational psychology and human development. After a 20 year personal and professional learning journey I become a qualified International Teaching and Supervising Transactional Analyst in the organisational psychology field. A love of learning saw me also gain a Masters degree in Learning Science and Technology followed by completing a PhD resulting in design principles for improving team meeting productivity through paying special attention to group memory and learning.
Working across New Zealand and Australia, the last 30 years have seen me work across areas of transformation, organisation development, leadership, coaching, change management, benefits realisation management and modern workplace learning.
