We are THE partner you need to deliver real Behavioural & Cultural Change in your organisation.
We have a deep understanding the critical influence that managers have on the creation of High Performing Workplaces and the impact they have on the people within those organisations.
Our team are focussed on one thing, turning Managers into Great Managers®
Great Managers is the brainchild of our Founder and Managing Director, Sandra Wood. Having spent more than 25 years in the HR & OD space and having trained thousands of Leaders since becoming a consultant in 2001, Sandra was determined to bring leadership and people management development into the 21st Century.
Along with Co-Founder Cameron Burgess, Sandra developed and launched Great Managers in 2012.
We’re on a Mission to Fill The World With Great Managers!
We exist to help Managers around the world to build high performing workplaces because we understand the ripple affect Managers have on the people they lead.
Possibly like you, we’ve experienced the lows of having a poor Manager in our lifetimes and we’ve experienced the exceptional difference a Great Manager can make. We want you and your people to experience that difference.

We’re passionate about and committed to continual learning and personal and professional development, for our clients AND within our own team. We’re industry leaders in behavioural & cultural change and we are hell bent on developing Capability, not just Competency!
Something we’re not so great at? Our office coffee! But we’re working on it. 🙂
