Our half-day Mindset for Leaders workshops are specifically designed for people who want to operate at their highest level, lead with purpose, and who are seeking practical tools to define their next steps. This could be either an emerging leader seeking ways to unlock their potential or people who are facing into a career or personal milestone.
These hands-on workshops are anchored in the same leadership methodology used by The Hunger Project to tackle the root causes of hunger and poverty in Africa, India and Bangladesh and Latin America.
Through our approach, we partner with the people living in hunger and poverty and support them to become leaders that are nimble, resilient and willing to take risks. We enable them to mobilise others in their community, develop sustainable solutions to overcome the challenges that they face, and utilise their own skills and resources to create social change.
The reality is that this kind of leadership is required everywhere. No matter where we live or what our circumstances, our progress and development requires the same shift in mindset to achieve our goals. If this approach can empower people to end their own hunger and poverty, imagine what it can do for us here in Aotearoa!
How is Mindset for Leaders different from other leadership workshops?
- This is personal development with a social impact!
Profits from these workshops fund the work we’re doing to sustainably end hunger and poverty by 2030. By attending one of our Mindset for Leaders workshops, you’ll be unlocking your own potential while also helping to create a world where everyone has the opportunity to shape their own future and lead a fulfilling life.
- It's based on methodology that has been proven to work.
Our leadership methodology is being used globally to empower people to end their own hunger and poverty. Our work has already impacted 15.9 million people around the world and has enabled more than 500,000 people in African communities alone to move from foreign aid dependency to a life of complete self-reliance and dignity. What we do works.
- We use inspiring real life examples that you can relate to.
At the core of our workshops are the insights that we share. Using a combination of textbook learning, storytelling, personal reflection, group sharing and facilitated conversation, we explore the fundamental characteristics of effective leadership through the lens of some of the worlds most unlikely leaders. People who, against all odds, are shifting beliefs, moving beyond their current limitations and creating significant change in their own lives and the communities they live in. You’ll be challenged to rethink what’s possible for yourself both personally and professionally, and inspired to achieve your goals and aspirations.
- We enable you to uncover the root cause of what’s holding you back.
Have you been to multiple leadership and personal development workshops but found that nothing has really had a tangible impact on your life? These workshops will help you uncover the root cause of what’s preventing you from reaching your potential and becoming an effective leader.
- We don't just give you the theory, we provide practical tools that will enable you to take action.
It’s all well and good knowing you aren’t where you want to be, but often we’re held back because we don’t know where we want to be or how to get there. We’ll provide you with practical tools that you can use to get clarity on where you want to be and to create the pathways to get there.
- We create a personalised learning environment.
We intentionally facilitate this workshop in a small group setting to encourage engagement and enable a more personal learning environment.
I came to find my purpose. I left with a plan on how I might find it.

It was extremely inspiring! It’s astonishing how much each one of us can achieve and the change we can bring.
Sweta - July 2019
The workshop was different in the way that it approached the concept of leadership - it’s not all about making it to the top as CEO. Their inspiring real life examples from Asia, Africa and Latin America will expand your concept of leadership, and help you reflect inwardly on how you are a leader in your current role or company.
Brittany - Jul 2019
I was challenged to get out of my comfort zone, look at myself from a different perspective, really rethink leadership and learn how to cultivate a growth mindset - from the most beautiful and unlikely leaders!
Amanda - July 2019
Since attending this workshop, I have a different mindset - not only from a business point of view, but also at home with the kids and my family. Even in the short time since doing the workshop I have many examples of what would have been “not possible goals/tasks” for me that have moved to being completely achievable with a different way of thinking.
