Digby Scott
I’m known as a leadership development practitioner and coach who brings a fresh approach. I work with ‘restless go-getters’ that are on a mission to make a difference. My aim is to help people to think and act in new ways so that they nail it.

LDC coach and facilitator

I’m interested in two areas that I think will make a difference to leadership in New Zealand:

  • Developing more purposeful, authentic leaders earlier in career, so that they play bigger role in solving NZ’s challenges.
  • Designing and running leadership development initiatives that help leaders grow not just their skillsets but also the mindsets they need to lead with things get complex.

I’ve worked in the leadership development field since 1998, in Australia and New Zealand, designing, facilitating and coaching. Previously, I’ve been a chartered accountant, a recruiter, a manager, and have established and sold two businesses. This experience, along with my expertise in adult development, means I take a grounded and pragmatic approach to my work.

I’ve presented at leadership conferences in New Zealand and Australia. I lecture on coaching and career management for the Auckland Business School’s MBA programme, and have been a board member of the International Coach Federation for Australasia. I also contribute to thinking at the Centre for Creative Leadership in the US, and am an Associate of the Melbourne Business School’s Mt Eliza Executive Education programme.
