Lotty is a forward thinker in the field of Change Management, Organisational Culture and Leadership, with nearly 20 years’ experience leading and coaching people through large scale change and transformation programmes. During her career Lotty has had lots of hands on experience focusing on the mindset of change as well as what makes leaders great and teams thrive.
Lotty discovered Mindfulness to help her personally manage some ongoing chronic pain - it did indeed help her manage the pain but she found the benefits much further reaching than she had ever expected. Through her own personal journey with Mindfulness - Lotty instantly saw an opportunity to integrate a mindful approach towards leadership, culture and change, believing change done well is ‘Mindfulness in action’.
Lotty has now founded her own business, ‘Mind U’, where she is devoted to helping companies and individuals build the capability and 'know how' to mindfully lead and navigate themselves through change so they reap the benefits with the least amount of discomfort. Lotty uses a combination of her hands on experience as a leader, change expert, her work focusing on human behaviour and emotional literacy in the workplace, along with her skills as a trained Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Teacher. As well as her work with business world Lotty also runs public courses and retreats in Wellington that are available for anyone to attend.
Outside of ‘Mind U’ Lotty is a mum of 3 young boys, who loves to hike, she is also a registered (200YTT) yoga teacher, and hosts her own Podcast show called ’The Vulnerability Effect’ where she interviews people across New Zealand to share their stories of vulnerability and dealing with adversity .
