Helping Women Reclaim Purpose and Passion

Leanne is making a difference for professionals across the world. Her coaching brings a fresh, global perspective earned from working with countless clients across myriad industries. Her message is designed to resonate with any professional, though her specialty has focused on empowering women to navigate complex work environments for significant career advancement. 

“Workplaces are complex environments with many different personalities and relationships, and it’s important to remember that company values on a page don’t make a culture,” Leanne warns. “We have all heard the many corporate statements of ‘Here we believe …’ but the ‘we’ rarely includes everyone. It ignores the fact that unconscious bias exists, and fails to honor the many choices women want to make, personally and professionally.

Working through such environments can feel daunting, but Leanne’s hope is that women who embrace her recommendations will walk away with a sense of calmness, balance, and inspiration.

With more than thirty years of senior-level and executive development in The United States, England,  Ireland and South Africa, Leanne brings finely-honed expertise to bear with each new client. Leaders from some of the most recognizable brands across the world including Salesforce, GlaxoSmithKline, McKesson, Alcoa, Bayer, SAP, the American Bar Association, UBS, EQT, Highmark, and UPMC consistently turn to Leanne for expertise, guidance and mentorship.

She earned her Master’s in Industrial Psychology from the University of Johannesburg.
