Daniel Mottau

Global Director, People Experience, Zip Co

A senior organisation development, leadership and communications leader, Dan enjoys examining the underlying motivations and patterns of thinking that elicit amplifying and diminishing behaviours within teams. His leadership, learning and coaching practice is heavily influenced by behavioural psychology and anthropology, especially as their principles may be applied to team functioning and the cultivation of psychologically safe and productive workplaces.

Dan’s primary passion is for accelerating the growth of leaders, and increasing their personal impact through the success of their teams and client groups. He believes highly effective leaders maintain an outward mindset. They act in service to the needs and objectives of the team and business, communicate clear and compelling vision and direction, provide feedback often, and are consciously inclusive. They value healthy debate, champion unique experience and perspective, and foster belonging.
