Gerard Penna specialises in leadership, high performing teams, transformational change and executive wellbeing. He understands that executives and leaders are expected to maintain high levels of performance and productivity, and that the quality of their leadership is directly proportional to their wellbeing.

As such, Gerard has a vision that leaders who focus on their wellbeing perform at their best, achieve work-life balance, maintain healthy practices and create more productive team cultures. This vision is inspired by Gerard’s personal journey in operating at the highest and most demanding levels of leadership, whilst maintaining work-life balance and healthy practices.

With GLWS, Gerard brings the latest research-based wellbeing diagnostics and development techniques to equip senior leaders with the resources they need to flourish in high-demand environments.

Programs range from 1:1 executive coaching, and work with executive teams through to larger classroom style sessions for up to 20 leaders at a time. During executive wellbeing workshops, Gerard works with leaders to establish the connection between wellbeing and work performance, as well as life satisfaction, helping participants to cultivate the conditions in which they can go on to develop effective, driven teams, and an organizational culture of balance, growth, and sustainability.

As a GLWS strategic partner, Gerard has invested in GLWS as a powerful and accessible way for leaders and team members to understand their state of wellbeing today, and take informed action to achieve higher levels of wellbeing. Gerard finds that the flexibility of GLWS in differentiating and integrating leader and team wellbeing is unique.

As an alumnus of Harvard University Kennedy School, Deakin University, and Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Gerard highly recommends the GLWS for any leader or manager who wishes to make a difference for people and for performance.

Australia & New Zealand

Leading Well is Australia’s first systemic leadership collective with our team of experienced leadership practitioners, coaches and facilitators across major cities in Australia as well as Auckland and Wellington in New Zealand.

We know that organisations that manage the performance-wellbeing dynamic most effectively deliver more successful and sustainable outcomes.  Founded on the principle that to ‘Lead’ well one needs to lead ‘Well’, wellbeing sits at the foundation of the services we provide our clients which include:

  • Leadership – development modules and programs, workshops & offsites
  • Coaching – team and individual coaching including GLWS wellbeing and 360 assessments
  • Mentoring – enterprise mentoring programs as well as executive mentoring

Our approach is based on the following principles: 

  • Leadership mindset – Developing the capability to shift from an individually-focused reactive mindset to a collectively creative mindset that engage teams and manages effectively with complexity, change and uncertainty. 
  • Vitality and wellbeing – Leadership and wellbeing are often held as opposites, requiring a choice of one over the other. We believe the opposite is true – to be a great leader, you need to understand and manage your own wellbeing and the wellbeing of those you lead
  • Systemic perspective – We help you navigate and interpret the dynamics of flow and restriction manifesting in the voice of your customers, your people and your business results to maximise the flow and vitality across your organisation.

Dr Órla NicDomhnaill, Chief Executive Officer

"The GLWS is an exceptional tool that not only broadened my understanding knowledge and skill in this area but perfected my coaching approach and connection with the client. I can’t recommend this tool and accreditation highly enough."

Cheryl Waters, GM Organisational Development and Culture, Greencross Ltd, Australia

"GLWS provides a thorough framework to approaching wellness in a corporate context, and creates a great platform to have meaningful conversations with clients that will enhance both the business results for the organization, as well as their personal lives."

Alice Gustavsson, Executive Coach, Strategy Together, UK.

"The range of aspects of wellbeing covered by the GLWS survey is very thorough and useful for those working within organisations, especially from mid-level leadership roles upward. The approach of considering both "Working Well" and "Living Well" allows people to consider the trade-offs, pinch-points, and also their wellbeing enablers in useful detail."

Pam Wilson, Independent Coach, New Zealand

"The GLWS is such a useful tool and the quality of supporting resources exceeds my expectations."

Sharon Steiner Hart, Executive Coach, Talking Talent, USA

"The GLWS is excellent – outstanding in its class, and the best wellbeing survey I know of (for leaders and professionals)."

Bo Golovan, Executive Coach, BPI Group, USA

"The GLWS is thorough and considered and not glib like the usual. It’s also not so long that it is too hard or too big a commitment for busy people. It’s bias free and creates a genuine openness for leaders to reflect on their thoughts, feelings and behaviours without feeling the pressure of preconceived assumptions, expectations or judgements. It’s a powerful tool to help each individual figure out their personal non-negotiables at this stage in their lives."

Cassandra Goodman, Executive Coach & Facilitator, Thrive Global / Author, Self-Fidelity.

"The certification process was very straightforward and the tool itself is so robust, intuitive and well designed. I appreciate the personalized attention, responsiveness and support from the GLWS team."

Sarah Gourley, Director of Operations, Talking Talent USA

"I found the GLWS accreditation training extremely valuable, particularly in its breadth and depth. It gives me confidence as it is has been developed through comprehensive psychologically based scientific development, research and robust trialling where the competition stakes similar claims but do not deliver."

Peter Kellaway, Principal Consultant Psychologist, Steople (PeopleScape) Australia & NZ

"The GLWS accreditation program was an excellent self-paced process. The program enabled me the time and space to not only reflect on my own well-being, but also access to amazing resources to truly appreciate the depth and validity of the survey."

Marion Stanway, Tripleconnect Consulting, Associate Melbourne Business School, Australia.

"Level 1 provided me with great professional and personal development - useful knowledge and new expertise, interesting self-insights with excellent breadth and depth of course content. I really loved the debriefing aspect of the program doing it live and the preparation. Loved the end webinar for that brought our so many ideas and possible solutions for my organisation."

Cheryl Waters, GM Organisational Development and Culture, Greencross Ltd, Australia

"This was an excellent program – very well structured and exceeded my expectations. The GLWS is an excellent tool and process, providing for deep reflection and valuable insights into all aspects of wellbeing."

John White, Director CarmanWhite, Australia

"I have really valued EEK & SENSE’s approach of working closely with their accredited partners to ensure great outcomes for clients. I would recommend the GLWS accreditation to any coach who wants to build their skills, expand their service offering, and enhance the wellbeing and performance of their clients."

Andi Pert – Facilitator & Executive Coach, Life NRG

"After considerable market research I chose the GLWS program as it was definitely a unique offering that stood out from other diagnostic tools. Completing the GLWS accreditation allowed me to expand my qualifications and provided me with a tool that would add considerable value to my business offering. The online accreditation process was a fantastic experience and Karen and the team were great throughout. Very excited to be on board!"

Melinda Fell, Talent & Coaching Consultant, MFC Consulting

"Individual leaders have experienced a highly personalised intervention, aimed at supporting them to take personal responsibility for making positive changes to enhance their wellbeing. As an organisation, I feel we are now well placed to create targeted wellbeing interventions to address the needs, giving us a better return on investment than simply applying a wellbeing ‘band aid’."

Sean Carroll, GM of People, Culture and Innovation, Australia Post

"GLWS was an important eye-opener, a pointed and timely prompt to make some changes I knew I needed to make….and I feel so much better for it now. Nearly 6 months have passed, and I am still reaping the benefits at a personal level and I can see the positive changes happening across my whole team."

Jen Delves, Head of People Services, QANTAS

"We are witnessing a huge increase in the need and demand for executive wellness. More and more my clients and I are discussing how they spend their time and energy and the difficulties they are experiencing with integrating personal, family and work commitments. The GLWS is invaluable."

Dr Órla NicDomhnaill, CEO, Thrive Advisory

"What has been so powerful for the participants is how tangible the outcomes are. The GLWS allows you to fast-track the coaching conversation and immediately identify which aspects of wellbeing need attention. The conversation very quickly becomes about brainstorming actions that will improve overall wellbeing. It’s such a positive and empowering tool."

Lauren Jauncey, (former) Head of Diversity & Inclusion, Australia Post

"The GLWS accreditation workshop was extremely valuable. I learned about the GLWS model and reports in-depth, and through case studies and the experience of Karen and Audrey, gained great ideas for handling more challenging wellbeing concerns. All in all, the day was informative, practical and very enjoyable. Thank you."

Caoimhe Richmond, Capability Consulting
