Ms Nuala Dent


Nuala brings a systems-psychodynamic approach to her work to surface the unspoken and largely unconscious issues that influence how people take up roles, perceive what is happening and make decisions. With a deeper understanding of the workplace experience, clients are better able to consider organisational structures, processes and resources and create opportunities for sustained change.

Nuala is a consultant and coach for INSEAD’s Global Leadership Centre and a faculty member for The Grubb School of Organisational Analysis. Her consulting services focus on leadership development and organisational change.

Currently a PhD candidate at La Trobe University, Nuala’s research focuses on the experience of working in a team that is spread across multiple locations and the impact on workers’ ability to take up leadership and authority in their roles, accountability, productivity and workplace health. Nuala is a member of Group Relations Australia (GRA) and the International Society for the Psychoanalytic Study of Organizations (ISPSO).

An increasingly large part of organisational life is online interactions.
I want to understand what’s happening now, so as to make a positive impact on the workplace of the future…the workplace of children and their generation.
