Meet The Team

Ben Haslett

Ben is an organisational change specialist with nearly 20 years’ experience of leading global initiatives and implementations. Having performed several global roles while working and living in Europe, the Americas and Asia, he is adept at developing high performing teams comprising diverse capabilities and cultures. He has a particular interest in applying coaching skills within groups to encourage highly participative and collaborative ways of unlocking organisational ‘stuckness’.

Ben studied an MSc in Applied Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology to satiate his deeply curiosity about the human response to change, and now dedicates himself to enabling people to lead a more meaningful and purposeful existence, by drawing on evidence-based practices to promote effective leadership and self-development. 

Ben’s work centers on the practical application of positive psychology in the workplace, which is supported by his extensive research into the relationship between autonomy at work and employee wellbeing. His goal is support for organisations to augment wellbeing into the way of working, fuelled by his passion for promoting a brighter future for workplace culture.
