Anne Elder-Knight teaches leaders, teams and organisations how to get out of their own way so they can unleash their individual and collective promise.

From the business case for rapid innovation and diverse thinking to the observable cultural and generational shifts in the workforce and marketplace, smart organisations know they must unleash the benefits of a diverse and inclusive workplace. The problem is D & I efforts are failing to realise the touted benefits.

D & I is no longer a numbers game. Nor is it simply an issue of capturing hearts and minds. Fast-tracking an inclusive culture taht delivbers a sense of belonging and connection rests on five pillars: making it personal, targeting career moments of truth, focusing on leadership identity, upskilling leaders to sponsor and mentor future leaders and centering on diverse thinking in teams.

This work is confronting. It requires leaders to be vulnerable and open to exploration and learning. It necessitates highly skilled facilitation that guarantees psychological safety for everyone and carefully balances challenge and care.

Over the past twenty years Anne has honed her unique brand of provocation and support to help thousands of people unlock their leadership potential. Today she designs and leads programmes to unleash untapped talent that support the creation of truly inclusive cultures.

Whether speaking, training or mentoring Anne can be relied on to deliver compelling, thought-provoking and practical content that leaves audiences, teams and leaders energised and equipped to act.

Different this Time:
A Revolutionary Roadmap for Transformative Change

At some point, all of us have tried and failed to change something about ourselves or our organisations. We know the theory of change, but somehow our great intentions just haven't panned out as we expected.

Part of the problem is we think we want things to change, but what we really seek is transformation. Change traverses familiar territory starting from what has been and striving to improve it. Transformation starts with what might be and is a daring journey to ensure a future that is profoundly different and better than what is.

If we really want things to be different this time, we need a different approach.

In this revolutionary book, Anne unpacks the ways of knowing, being and doing that enable us to lead ourselves and others to make transformative changes. Changes that permanently re-cast who we are and the results we get.
