Yvonne Willich

Yvonne is a psychologist who has worked in both counselling and organisational roles. For over 20 years she has helped individuals, boards and organisations untangle the people issues which have reduced their effectiveness.

She has a deep understanding of motivation, personality, leadership and human behaviour and uses this knowledge to increase self-awareness in others.

Yvonne has extensive experience assessing the leadership capability of executives in large government and private organisations.  She has worked with executive recruiters to select leaders most capable of achieving commercial and cultural transformation.

Yvonne will also identify the leaders within an organisation who exert greatest positive influence and who will be most effective in driving organisational improvement. She will highlight the positive forces and the risks in the existing culture, addressing both to achieve sustainable change.

Yvonne has improved the culture in workplaces where staff surveys indicated low confidence in leadership and poor morale. The human and financial improvements were evaluated by Melbourne University.
