Diana Renner

Diana is a teacher, facilitator, consultant, coach and author.

Diana believes that leadership is an activity that anyone can engage in, regardless of background or position. In her work she weaves together a range of disciplines including Adaptive Leadership, Complexity Theory, Adult Development and Process Oriented Psychology to help people become better leaders and make a positive impact in the world around them. She is particularly interested in ‘sand box leadership’ – creating experiential learning opportunities where people can develop more self-awareness and comfort with ambiguity and uncertainty.

Diana’s diverse career spans the fields of law, strategy, communications, refugee advocacy and leadership development. She has facilitated a variety of leadership programs both in Australia and overseas, including as a Faculty member with Harvard University Kennedy School of Government for ‘The Art & Practice of Leadership Development’, and workshops for The University of Adelaide, The University of Texas LBJ School of Government, Monash University and the Centre for Sustainability Leadership.

Diana is the co-author of ‘Not Knowing: the art of turning uncertainty into opportunity’ published in the UK and launched at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government in May 2014.
