Jonno Hanafin is a seasoned and insightful organisation development consultant and a trusted advisor to leaders with 27 years experience on five continents and in a wide variety of industries and organisations. Prior to establishing his private practice in 1987, Jonno directed the worldwide organisation and executive development functions for Exxon. He is a futurist with broad experience in bringing organisation visions and strategies to life.
His general practice in the area of organisation and leadership change has distinguished itself in three focus areas:

  • Executive transition – working with newly appointed CEOs and corporate officers as they assume responsibility for a company, division or function. This work has proven highly successful in compressing the learning curve of new executives and their organisations, and minimising the amount of misunderstanding and delayed performance which often characterises executive changes
  • Senior team development – working with teams of senior executives to ensure the alignment of mission, strategy and organisation, and to provide processes that support innovation, teamwork and consistent leadership coming from the senior team
  • Culture change – working with executives and other organisation resources to fast cycle creating or reshaping the culture of an organisation warranted by new business start-up, mergers, acquisitions or a strategic change in response to the market.
