At Upthrive Leadership we believe in fostering people-centric work environments through an in-depth understanding of organisational behaviour. Founded by Hansini Gunasekara, an experienced leadership consultant and organisational behaviour researcher, Upthrive Leadership is driven by a passion for creating workplaces where all people thrive.

Hansini's journey began in the realm of psychology, laying the foundation for her career in organisational behaviour and management practice. Drawing from personal experiences as an employee, a leader, an immigrant, and an ethnic minority person, Hansini has traversed workplaces in the UK, Sri Lanka, and New Zealand. These diverse experiences provided her with unique insights into the dynamics of leadership, psychological safety and workplace inclusion.

We understand the pivotal role psychological safety plays in shaping work experiences. Having witnessed firsthand the transformative impact of feeling psychologically safe, we recognise its influence on employee engagement, performance, job satisfaction, and wellbeing. In a world reliant on knowledge workers, psychological safety is more important now than ever.
