Joanna Barclay

Culture Leadership Group

I teach inspiring leaders and dynamic leadership teams how to become an employer of choice.  The book I wrote, Conscious Culture, is a powerful cultural transformation blueprint and facilitative approach for leaders to achieve strategic success.  By deliberately creating an engaging workplace culture that nurtures the full potential of their people, and increases the top and bottom line. I recently moved back to Ottawa from Singapore, where I lived for 5 years, building a leadership consulting business, and became a global keynote speaker and thought-leader on Conscious Leadership and Cultural Transformation.

What is your favorite part of being a member of the WBN? If you are a newer member, what do you hope to give or receive from your membership in the WBN?

I wish to empower and inspire women leaders, awakening their full potential and the full potential of the people in their organisations.

What’s the business advice you would give today to your younger self?

Believe, have confidence in all of my abilities, and the courage to follow my dreams.

Who would be invited to your dream dinner party?

Michelle Obama, Nelson Mandela, and Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. Each of these leaders is a mentor and role model for me because of their compassion and ability to connect humanity, see past limitations, forgive, and bring out the very best in people. ease What’s one thing people would be surprised to learn about you?

What is one thing people would be surprised to learn about you?

I have 15 years of experience in high tech as a software consultant for Digital Equipment and Oracle Corporation, and went through my own personal/professional transformation, morphing into a professional facilitator and leadership consultant working with people instead of technology.
