Maree Harris, Ph.D. is the Director of People Empowered, a leadership development company. She helps leaders develop the skills and confidence to BE the kind of leaders they need to BE to lead in these uncertain, unprecedented and changing times. She focuses especially on developing resilience, emotional intelligence, pro-activity and self-awareness in leaders, believing that these are the skills that will enable them to meet the challenges they face in this new normal. She believes that the best way to gain those skills is through mentoring and coaching where the learning can be personalised to each leaders' needs. While she also conducts leadership development workshops, her experience has shown her that on their own the change and enhanced confidence they bring about in leaders is limited. They need to be followed by with mentoring and coaching to gain the outcomes that most want.
