Welcome to DDI Australia
We invite you to spend a few minutes getting to know us, and our approach to leadership.
Australian organisations are faced by a constant state of complexity. Disruption is in full force – and the management skills of the past will no longer cut it. It’s clear that a new kind of leadership is needed to propel organisations forward. Whether your charter is driving transformation and innovation, building an inspiring culture and purpose, boosting employee engagement and retention, or driving D&I initiatives (plus much more), we are here to help you make a difference and achieve outstanding results through your biggest asset – your people.

How is Leadership Stacking up in Australia and New Zealand?
When we launched the Global Leadership Forecast survey in February of 2020, we had no idea what our world would face. We were able to capture responses from both before and during a global pandemic. What came through clearly in this year’s study is that organisations in Australia and New Zealand are gearing up for an era of constant crisis, where if leaders want to succeed, they must also be ready to rapidly gain new skills and change.
In this special Australia and New Zealand report, uncover key trends and learn talent best practices backed by research to guide the future of leadership at your organisation.
