Leanne's Bio

Canadian born, Leanne Babcock, followed a kiwi guy to New Zealand nearly fifteen years ago and decided to stay long, after he had moved on. Her life has not always been a comfortable journey but it is one that has given her strength and insight into what can help people to achieve in their lives. In 1993, she started a business called Babcock Associates, now known as Babcock Coaching & Training, said to deliver some of the most effective training and coaching in New Zealand.

Leanne brings to any audience or coaching session a passionate belief that all of us can achieve anything we want by being true to ourselves and allowing the "Real You" to emerge.

As one of New Zealand's leading motivational speakers and management and life coaches, Leanne has trained with and studied some of the big names in personal development, like Robert Kiyosaki, the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad; Anthony Robins, a recognised authority on peak performance, motivation, and the creator of Personal Power and Get the Edge; Dr. Richard Bolstad, known as one of the worlds top Neuro-linguistic master practitioner trainers; Eric Jenson, master of Accelerated Learning; the American Leadership College; and Landmark Education.

She is trained in Transactional Analysis, Behavioural Psychology, Accelerated Learning, Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Hypno-therapy.

Leanne has transformed the overall effectiveness of managers, of teams and of individuals in many different organisations through her coaching and her training. (for more on Coaching)

Her clients vary across many different industries including Telecom, NZ Post, Goodman Fielder, IRD, ACC, Department of Conservation, AXA, AMI, Asteron, Australian High Commission, First NZ Capital, Ministry of Health, Department of Internal Affairs, Ministry of Fisheries, Ministry of Transport, Ministry of Justice, NZQA, Public Trust and many more.

In North America, Leanne was a Regional Director and Certified Consultant with the Americana Leadership College, an international training college offering leadership programmes to the public in the US and Canada. In Australasia, she was the designated Chairperson for all the seminar leaders in Landmark Education. For many years she has trained and coached trainers, seminar leaders and coaches from North America, Australia and New Zealand. (for more on Training)

Since she was 13 years old, Leanne has been involved in community work and a few years ago established and chaired a volunteer organisation, called the Community Action Team. C.A.T. worked on community projects with the Police, Victim Support, and other such organisations, as well as created their own projects.

Leanne's road has not been an easy one but her commitment to face the fear has always seen her through. Over the years, she has taken up several challenges to continue facing her fear which has lead her to walk over fire, jump from a plane, break arrows with her neck and break many boards with her hand.

Over the last few years, Leanne has found that her challenges don't necessarily lie in the physical acts of courage that she's done. The real challenges seem to be ones of the heart, more of a softer nature; the challenges that require one to be vulnerable, to open one's heart and to love. In keeping with her commitment to face the 'challenge', Leanne has recently married her soulmate and experiences the wonder and beauty of personal development every day in maintaining a soulmate relationship.
