Grant Herbert

As the founder and CEO of People Builders, Grant trains coaches, corporate trainers, HR professionals, facilitators, managers and leaders to provide the best outcomes possible for any individual organisation. With over 30 yeas as a leadership trainer and coach, he has learned that the key to developing others is to first help them replace the mindsets and behaviours that are currently sabotaging their results. Once that platform is built, they actually implement what we teach them. This ensures a high ROI. Whether it is the corporate boardroom, the business seminar or the conference venue, Grant inspires in you a desire to change and then show you how to do so. In his own authentic yet powerful way, Grant guides you through your surface story into the real issues hidden below. As a Leadership Mentor and Executive Coach, Grant helps to reduce stress and workplace conflict by increasing social and emotional intelligence and authentic leadership capabilities. As a Corporate Trainer, he creates and environment where people make positive change in the room, not just get more information about the problem.
