liberation movement

Integrating humanistic principles into an organization means operating from a place of understanding stress and adversity while also recognizing the adverse effects it can have within organizations and the communities we work within.

Stress and challenges are a natural part of life that affects who we are, how we show up and how we navigate the world. Integrating humanistic principles into an organization means operating from a place of understanding stress and adversity while also recognizing the adverse effects it can have within organizations and the communities we work within. As a business professional, understanding people and the challenges they face helps you better navigate the impacts it has on them and the workforce. This knowledge and tools help you approach organizational processes from a humanistic lens, mitigating the harm perpetuated by a misunderstanding of human behaviour. It means creating a safe and supportive work environment for all to thrive.

What is a humanized approach to business?

Humanizing our approach to business is, at its core, a people’s liberation movement.  Many of us have worked in organizations where we’ve either witnessed or been involved in some pretty unsavoury behaviour in the name of “good business sense”.  When we humanize, we add context, we consider information that may be outside our usual channels and seek to build community that may extend far beyond the edge of our organizational boundaries.


Humanizing business brings together a set of practices which currently sit largely on the periphery for most executives - mindfulness, trauma-informed facilitation, holistic thinking and embodied knowing.  We utilize tools and techniques that are congruent with these practices and designed to dismantle static, centralized power structures in favour of collaboration and responsiveness.  We shift from reductionist, binary thinking into a spectrum of possibilities utilizing complexity theory for change-making.  Our businesses are human-centred, customer-led and purposeful.

How will this programme help you move toward a humanistic approach?

This program is an introduction to a mindset, frameworks and a set of proven business tools and practices to support your organization’s move towards a more humanistic approach.


You’ll learn the personal tools you need to keep yourself resourced and feeling resilient throughout your change campaign. We’ll explore the science of stress and why learning how regulating your nervous system is paramount for meaningful and sustainable change. This program looks at how to go from surviving the day-to-day to thriving in uncertainty and meeting challenges head-on in a healthy and endurable way. We’ll explore what resilience and mental agility mean for you and evidence-based tools to support and increase your capacity for work, life and everything in between. 


We’ll also share proven business techniques for implementing a radical shift in the way your organization functions.  You’ll learn how to decentralize decision-making for speed and risk mitigation; implement continuous learning strategies that foster creativity and innovation; navigate an environment of constant change with robust practices that embrace variability - enabling action whilst others flounder.

For these reasons, we offer tiered pricing. There is an invitation to reflect on your access to resources and privilege, the value of this work, what you can genuinely afford, and what you might pay for comparable training programs. By committing to what is truly within your means you make it possible for others to show up within theirs and we are all grateful for this.

I started life as a project manager in construction but quickly became fascinated with the less-than-certain environment of digital organisations.  Blending people, process, hardware and software into different concoctions intrigued me from the start.  We had fun.  A lot of fun, and we got some bangin' big projects off the ground and humming.  Not only that, we did it with enough style that I earned a reputation as a chick that could get it done.


And then I began to realise we can only go so far in the office.  tribe is my passion for supporting leaders, taken to the next level.  I believe the good guys don't finish last, I believe in setting an example so great that others can't help but have to take notice as you skyrocket your results beyond their wildest dreams.  And I believe this requires us to embrace all of ourselves, our hidden talents, our vulnerabilities, to bring our whole selves to the workplace - and to enable that for our teams as well.  Imagine the incredible productivity uplift if we could use our full capabilities, rather than the tiny sliver that most of today's organisations exchange for a fortnightly pay cheque.


I've been incredibly privileged to have time with some of Asia-Pacific's top executives and to have real, raw, forthright and life-changing conversations.  I intend to use this position of privilege to change the face of leadership, one person at a time.
