About Us

What’s unique about us?

Noticing that our name says “leadership”, without the “i” and wondering if we can spell?

We did it on purpose.

In fact, we founded LeadersHP in 2019 with a strong sense of purpose for helping leaders find a new way by interrupting old patterns of thinking and doing that no longer serve in our current context. 

Successfully navigating the complexity and uncertainty we’re experiencing today requires less “I” and more “we” in leadership. More effective collective leadership.

We’re passionate about facilitating development that leverages this new way of leading, unleashes creativity, clarity and new levels of consciousness, and ultimately, delivers exceptional outcomes which translate in observable shifts in the culture and performance of the organisations in which we work.

We also facilitate strategic planning, stakeholder and community engagement, leadership and culture reviews, individual executive coaching and mentoring services.

We focus on partnering and building trusted relationships with our clients. We invest our time, energy and expertise in organisations and individuals who are committed to growing, making a difference and having a positive impact in the world.
