What We Do

Our Mission

To grow New Zealand’s leaders. It’s that simple.

Our Story

I established NZ Leadership in 2020 after seeing the amazing results that young men and women all over the world can achieve in austere and challenging environments. 

Seeing the potential of those around me, I was inspired to do my part in developing our future leaders and empowering our Small and Medium Businesses right here in New Zealand.

My background in operational leadership and leadership training defined my guiding principles for NZ Leadership. I believe the most important responsibility of a leader is to create the environment to nurture and grow other (even better) leaders. 

Drawing on previous experience in leadership under pressure, building teams, and operating in ambiguous environments our goal is to teach these same tools and techniques to New Zealanders. We work with our clients to make their own communities better places for themselves and the next generations.

NZ Leadership was born in challenging and uncertain times. We have prided ourselves on not only providing tips, tools, and techniques to assist our clients but also walking the walk and leading despite the challenges that surround us. Anyone can lead during the good times, it is when adversity strikes it is time to take that leadership step.

What We’ve Achieved

  • We have worked with companies within Deloitte’s Fast 50 through to others that have been established for over four decades.

  • Some of the industries we have worked with include construction, hospitality, landscaping, electrical, accounting, and property development to name a few.
