About Julene Hope

‘People don’t resist change, they resist being changed’ 

Peter Senge.

For me, the greatest reward is to assist others to move beyond the barriers between them and success. I work with individuals and teams to navigate change in the workplace, whether that change is to seek and find a new direction, achieve better results or design a new way of working.

I am a Change Agent, a catalyst for better business, more supportive workplaces and stronger communities in New Zealand. I support organisations to design and deliver change to improve service quality, enhance culture, develop leadership and capability and embrace change. As a coach, I helps people expand their thinking, understand themselves better, and unblock whatever might be holding them back.

Change is an exciting place of great potential, a place where challenge, connection, improvement and personal growth can all come together to create better working environments.  I have led change in government programmes, in private business and with leaders across the health sector in both NZ and the UK.
