Leadership for Change

Leadership for Change


Click here to watch our 5-minute video.

In New Zealand and globally, we assume that change has to be slow, difficult and costly. But what if change can be simple, quick, effective and easily replicable in any field?

If you are a leader who is working to improve the culture or performance of your organisation or to transform your community or field, and you would like to understand what has been in the the way of real, lasting change until now, we invite you to discover a ground-breaking new understanding of the mind that will profoundly shift the way you approach your work, the results you can achieve, and your impact on others.

Globally, this understanding is preventing and permanently solving major problems such as:

  • Workplace stress and burnout

  • Toxic corporate culture, disengagement, conflict and inefficiency

  • Domestic abuse and violence against children

  • Addiction and crime

  • PTSD and mental trauma

By understanding how the mind actually works, you will see how to easily create resilient, healthy organisations and communities that thrive, regardless of any circumstances or challenges.


Unlike other events, this retreat is not about the sharing of new research, ideas or information. It is not about developing your personal strengths, skills or values, or about learning new strategies for change. We will not be teaching you how to cope with or manage the difficulties of your role through mindfulness or relaxation techniques.

Instead, you will learn the fundamental dynamics that underpin ALL human experience and behaviour. Understanding these basic principles will turn your understanding of change on its head, lay an entirely different set of foundations for understanding your work and enable you to address and find solutions to your challenges with clarity and impact.


As a leader, you will see how to:

  • Improve your capabilities across the board, but especially in areas you currently find challenging

  • Experience less stress and more clarity and peace of mind

  • Remain resilient and confident under pressure

  • Feel more motivated and engaged in your work

  • Better deal with difficult people and situations

Crucially, by taking this leading-edge thinking back into your organisation and personal life, you will be in a position to help others do the same and make a tangible and powerful difference in people's lives.


This is the first event of its kind in New Zealand and a unique opportunity for leaders of corporates, NGOs, government and volunteer orgnaisations. We invite you to completely re-think what you know, and be part of an exciting and profoundly hopeful new conversation on how to create real, lasting change.


Leadership for Change will be held at Brackenridge Country Estate in Martinborough, an hour’s drive from Wellington. 


“Susan Andrewes is one of those (rare) people with a talent for making the complex simple, making the invisible visible and making the difficult easy. A true leader, Susan teaches with directness, humility and a capacity to learn from every person in the room. I highly recommend you experience her work in person.” 
– Mahima Shrestha

"Susan has an incredible ability to point people at a different way of looking at the world. It is not an exaggeration to say that the possibilities of this way of understanding the world change everything."

- JJ Hill
