About the authors

James Brett describes himself as a digital leader who is passionate about developing people and organizations to create a positive future for humanity. Ultimately, he is a geek at heart. At the age of 11, he learned to code, and at 18, he had replaced the engine in his first car. His curiosity about how things work and his knack for fixing things continued into his adult work life.

James studied micro-electronics and computing at university, spent the next 10 years in software development, and more recently has focused over 10 years on leadership and coaching. As a technology expert, he leads strategic thinking from the board level through to team implementations, covering digital strategy, organizational transformation, and product development.  He holds a global perspective on digital, having lived in the USA, UK, China, and Australia, which allowed him to understand the complex cultural and market dynamics that impact technology and product delivery across continents.

James is well-respected in the tech industry, and has presented at several agile/digital conferences globally. As the ThoughtWorks Transformation Practice Lead, he had the privilege to work alongside his mentor, agile thought leader Jim Highsmith, on the global rollout of Adaptive Leadership. This started James down a path of ‘finding a better way' for teams and organizations. James is a certified Leadership Agility Coach, Integrative Enneagram Coach, NLP Master Practitioner, and Holacracy Practitioner. He leverages this unique combination of psychology and digital skills to grow high-performance teams, leaders and organizations.

Ultimately, James wants to leave the world a better place for his children and our future generations, so it is no surprise that he donates his time to charities and not for profit organizations such as Redkite and Burn Bright. Outside of the office, you will find James enjoying time with his family, capturing photos, building and flying drones, or in his work shed constructing cubby houses.
