You’re a leader:

  • With a bold vision of a unified workplace, where people bring their whole selves to work and feel celebrated for who they are
  • Who values integrity and wants to build or enhance an existing culture of diversity & inclusion
  • Who believes your people are your greatest asset and who wants to invest in their development and wellbeing
  • Who cares about engagement, emotional culture and sustainable performance

Human beings have two fundamental needs in life – significance and belonging. We yearn to be seen, heard and not just ‘accepted’ but embraced for who we are.

When you celebrate your people for who they are, you create an environment where they can thrive. A place where their gifts and strengths are recognised and leveraged to their fullest potential. A place where people love coming to work – and the company loves the results.

I work with individuals, teams, team leaders and organisations at large. I unlock potential, facilitate the discovery of natural leadership styles and show how to leverage strengths and emotional contagion to create happy, healthy and profitable workplaces.

Here’s how we can work together


We are all leaders, no matter our job titles, or responsibilities. We all have the potential to be magnetic. We just need guidance on how to tap into this.

My workplace coaching programmes are designed to help teams and leaders:

  • Discover your innate strengths and learn how to leverage them in the workplace
  • Connect with your values – so you act with integrity and create a compelling vision for how you want to show up in work and life
  • Develop compassionate leadership – so you build powerful connections with your colleagues and create empowered, engaged teams

This is about more than your individual role at work: this is about bringing your whole self to work and encouraging your people to do the same.

My work draws on internationally recognised and scientifically proven tools like CliftonStrengths®, Dare To Lead®, Heart Centered Leadership, The Emotional Culture Deck, narrative therapy and mindfulness to create a holistic and multi-layered approach to leadership and workplace wellness.

Workplace Wellness

Wellness is a whole body state. Think of it like you’re smiling from the inside out. For this reason I’ve trained in and offer wellness across all the realms of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Here are some examples of formats that wellness can be delivered in. And then there’s completely bespoke programmes like Kiwibank asked me to consult with them on. You can read more about this particular project here

I’m a Yoga Alliance accredited advanced yoga teacher, writer and speaker, comfortable and experienced in holding the room and global online stages for groups of 1 through to hundreds, as well as speaking more spontaneously in panels and podcasts like this podcast I co-hosted and this podcast which threw me some very unexpected questions!

“… are just a few of the words that come to my mind when I think of Tui. She is a person that instantly makes anyone feel comfortable, and this is an essential skill when working one on one and with groups of women. I engaged Tui to host an inspiring evening for a group of women in Marlborough in March 2018. It was a special evening of opening and emotion, brought about by the wonderful vibe Tui brings to a room. After the event guests said they felt relaxed, revived, energised and inspired to make positive changes in their lives.”

In addition, Tui facilitated a Senior Executive Q&A session for our International Women’s Day event in 2020, which was a huge success and has gone on to provide executive coaching to members of our Senior Management Team. Tui’s relaxed yet highly professional approach has allowed her to form great connections within our business, and to really open our people’s minds to what “wellbeing” means.
