IAIN CROSSING

about-iain

MANAGING DIRECTOR
REGISTERED PSYCHOLOGIST

Iain Crossing is a Business Psychologist with deep expertise in leadership assessment, executive leadership coaching and development, and guiding culture change in organisations.

Over the last 20 years, he has worked 1:1 with more than 1,200 executives around the world, developing their insights and skills to lead high-performing, highly-engaged organisations to success.

The quality of Iain’s evidence-based practice as a Business Psychologist, combined with his commercial acumen, have made him a long-term trusted advisor to many executives and HR Directors. These enduring relationships have enabled him to develop an intimate understanding of their business, culture and, people, which means he can work quickly and incisively with their leaders to achieve genuinely transformational outcomes.

His work with business leaders from different cultures in Australia, Asia, the UK, and the USA has motivated his PhD research into the ‘Bamboo Ceiling’ phenomenon, which refers to the proportionally low representation of people with Asian backgrounds in senior leadership roles in Australia. In his view, one of the most complex challenges organisations face is developing their leadership skills and culture to compete successfully for talent in diverse geographies. The combination of Iain’s academic research and applied experience enable him to give his clients direct access to leading-edge knowledge and expertise in the areas of Transformational Leadership, culture change, and leadership diversity.

Iain is a guest lecturer in psychology at the University of Sydney where he lectures on the assessment of competence, intelligence and personality in the workplace. He is also accredited with the Psychology Board of Australia as a Supervisor of provisionally registered Psychologists.
