Imagine what your

could achieve if their minds were open to new possibilities

Our Purpose

MindsOpen exists for one main reason – to open leaders’ minds to new possibilities so that they can achieve amazing outcomes for themselves, their teams, their employees and their organizations


At our core, we work with leaders and executive teams to find impactful solutions to talent, culture and leadership challenges


It’s time to have a conversation about the paradoxes of being a leader in the 21st Century

We are living in an age of leadership that’s all about openness, authenticity and vulnerability yet expectations of leaders remain high. Leaders are told to play to their strengths but feel the pressure to be good at everything. We know that’s a myth. The omnicompetent leader doesn’t exist. Never has, never will.

Leaders are encouraged to take risks, push boundaries and be entrepreneurial but there is low tolerance for mistakes. Read any article on leadership and you’ll see creativity, innovation and visionary thinking are the must-haves. But so are pragmatism and financial acumen.

It’s no wonder that leaders at all levels get stuck. Stuck in their development and in meeting competing demands. Stuck in old behaviors, bad behaviors and adapting to new behaviors. Stuck in myopic perspectives, arrogance or self-doubt. Navigating complex situations, relating to others and leveraging difference. Stuck. The same issues apply to teams and organizations. That’s why we exist. Put simply, we help leaders, teams and organizations become unstuck so they can move forward.
