In 2014, brother and sister Anna and Diarmid Lee merged their successful consultancies, Anna Lee Consulting and Leed Consulting, with the express purpose of offering interventions that improve performance both at the individual and at the organisational level.
Diarmid specialises in working with clients to identify what needs to be done to create a high performing culture across the business – and then helps them do it. Anna’s expertise is in working with organisations and leaders to develop workplaces that value diversity, cultivate inclusion and support their people to flourish.
After a diverse career spanning the higher education, publishing and entertainment industries, Anna established her own consultancy in 2008, when her first child was 6 weeks old. Her mission: to support women to take charge of their lives and careers.
Over the next six years Anna worked with hundreds of women across all levels of organisational hierarchies, from recent graduates to CEOs. In 2014 her desire to impact on the ‘big picture’ led Anna to partner with Diarmid to take a broader approach to leadership development and diversity and inclusion. Since then Anna has worked with leaders across the public, corporate and not-for-profit sectors to develop the skills, habits and mindsets that create resilient and inclusive teams and organisations.
Anna is particularly interested in the challenges the information age presents for leadership, personal resilience and inclusion. Drawing from the fields of neuroscience, psychology and behaviour design, her programs are relevant, engaging and – most importantly – lead to lasting personal and organisational change.
Anna is the only South Australian alumnus of the Centre for Applied Rationality in Berkeley, and one of only three certified Tiny Habits coaches in Australia. Throughout her career Anna has served on various Boards and Management Committees, and is currently a member of the Premier’s Council for Women.
