Leanne Lowish Executive Coach

Leanne is particularly experienced in culture transformation and working with organisations, teams and individuals to navigate organisation and systemic changes which involve complexity, ambiguity, volatility and uncertainty.

Leanne’s approach is eclectic and integrative, due to her 30 years of studying and working in adult development and human potential. She is both pragmatic and intuitive in her approach, recognising the opportunities and challenges of working in times of exponential change and focusing on getting to the bottom line – she attributes this to her antipodean roots.
