Ali Tocker
I am a practically-minded leadership consultant, known for my accessible style and extensive knowledge of how people develop most effectively at work.

LDC coach and facilitator

I am a leader of leaders. Working within the area of leadership and change for over 25 years, I have been involved in developing leaders both nationally and internationally. I partner with businesses, teams and individuals to create a development process that is specific and highly relevant to the areas of the people I work with.

I am best known for being an early adopter and a strategic thinker in my work. Because I can see patterns and identify bespoke solutions that are both practical and effective, I connect easily with people, and am able to operate within complex environments to support the successful development of senior leaders.

I have extensive strategic facilitation experience and am a highly respected coach who works from a viewpoint that people work best when they are interested and engaged in their own development. My style is coaching alongside to draw on the expertise of both parties in the coaching partnership.

I believe that good leadership development is practical and delivers tangible results at individual, team and organisational levels. Great leadership development is designed to be specific to the individual, and is anchored in tailored and considered outcomes.

I have worked throughout Aotearoa New Zealand with a wide range of organisations - government departments, not-for-profit organisations, educational institutes and universities, privately owned companies and community-based initiatives.

I am a dynamic and passionate facilitator, mentor and coach, with an adaptable communication style that enables effective, professional and considerate approaches that deliver results.
