CEO UQ POWER
Alexandra Joy – AJ’s purpose is to communicate, educate, and activate humanity’s potential for conscious evolution. She knows the impact leaders and their organisations can have on their people, so she works with leaders and conscious businesses who are committed to sustainable lifestyles and creating a positive impact.
AJ believes organisations can only grow as far and as deep as their leaders have gone themselves so she created the 10 degree shift process to help them be more and do less. Her coaching, facilitation, writing and speaking have been described as "absolutely inspiring", "refreshing and unexpected", and delivering "100% engagement".
A ten times published author with a degree in Communications, a Grad Dip and an MBA in Professional Communication, AJ is also a meditation teacher and yoga therapist using ayurvedic medicine principles to help leaders heal themselves and their teams through their relationships and tribes at work.
As a minimalist, biophiliac and former corporate refuge AJ literally downsized her life to live in and work from her tiny house. She let go of 75 per cent of her possessions and found it was more than just her stuff that was weighing her down. She’s found that management & leadership is much the same. It’s all about your mindset, being able to cut through the chaos & clutter to reduce the friction and increase flow.
Before founding several companies, she worked as Director for the government work health and safety regulator, WorkCover NSW. During her tenure, she changed the way WorkCover spoke to and built relationships with its stakeholders. She was responsible for changing the focus and perception of WorkCover brand as being the “enforcer” to focusing on the importance of working safely for the sake of going home to family and friends.
She believes it is impossible to make sustainable change in an organisation without a corresponding change in the leader's beliefs and behaviours. Through her engaging and unique interview style she brings other unique leaders philosophy and approach from all over the world to the airwaves through her podcast The Theatre of U. Each episode provides fascinating, real and genuine insights into human behaviour and leadership mastery.
When she’s not researching these types of relationships, AJ practises meditation, yoga, slow travel and other things that help her be a good human in how she serves in life.
AJ speaks regularly at conferences and in workplaces across Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific Islands and the US on the power of making 10 degree shifts, conscious leadership and the future of work. As a practicing servant leader, she is generous with her time – she is a founding board member of the Got Your Back Sista, the Founder and Chair of the Professional Communicators Network and the Co-Founder of Human Power.
