Successful people don’t have any fewer problems than unsuccessful people, they just have a different mindset in dealing with them……Kenneth H Blanchard. 


A “Growth Mindset”, as defined by Dr Carol Dweck, is characterised by an underlying belief that abilities and intelligence can be developed.  This mindset is often further defined by contrasting it with what we call a “Fixed Mindset”; an underlying belief that our abilities and intelligence are predetermined and set at particular levels.

Individuals with a growth mindset cultivate self-awareness and have high emotional intelligence. They have empathy that allows them to make a deeper emotional connection with their colleagues, peers, teams and those around them.

A former New South Wales Police Officer, Inspector for Work Cover (now SafeWork) NSW, and senior  workplace health and safety and human resources executive for several iconic Australian and Global companies, Deanne has experienced first-hand the devastating impact of safety-gone-wrong and has also seen the incredible benefits when it is done right.  She has attended fatal and serious injury incidents, knocked on families’ doors to tell them their loved ones were not coming home, investigated and prosecuted organisations for failing to ensure the safety of their people - and now you can get the benefit of all that experience wrapped into this not to be missed masterclass!
