Bringing the Power of Transformation to Every Organisation

Our Mission: Help Organisations Create Better Work Experiences

After twenty years of providing strategic leadership development for Directors, CEOs, General Managers, and High Potential Leaders through our sister organisation Institute for Strategic Leadership, our founder, Dr Geoff Lorigan, decided to set up a specialised team development service to support OD professionals effectively develop team leaders and team members, on-scale across organisations.

Headquartered in Auckland - New Zealand, SmartLeader offers leading edge, digital leadership and team development solutions to help leaders, and teams to become their best version selves.

Our team is guided by a set of core values that provide the foundation for everything we do as a team, both internally and with all our stakeholders.



We place a strong emphasis on cultivating trust within ourselves and the team, fostering an environment where every individual feels empowered to assume accountability and take ownership of their actions and decisions.



Teamwork is at the core of everything we do, from our open plan office,through to celebrating each other's successes, we empower each individual to be the best version of themselves.



At the core of our office culture is a dedicated emphasis on respect, fostering an empowering and positive atmosphere where individuals are encouraged to be mindful, embrace diversity, and cultivate an acceptance of viewpoints and cultures.



At SmartLeader, a crucial aspect of our roles is to consider customers as key partners, consistently going the extra mile to deliver high-quality solutions that enhance their teams.



The key to our consistent growth at SmartLeader lies in fostering curiosity and creativity, intrinsic to our foundational values, as we continually embrace change and development.



We recognise and celebrate diversity, equity, and inclusion, emphasising authenticity while maintaining regular communication with leadership figures.
