Professional Biography

Mike Budden is a Partner of BW Leadership Institute and the Managing Partner in South Africa.

“My WHY is to be a trusted pioneer in finding ways of Being so that we can be fully alive, living lives with meaning. I aim to live this out in my values of:
Ease with Uncertainty – daring greatly, having faith, a willingness to go where I have not gone before, knowing it is safe to do so with faith I will find the way
Empathy – walking in others’ feet, truly seeking out what they are seeing and feeling so that I can accept and see it from a different perspective
Peace – having a heart of peace, with Self first, knowing who I am, putting me in a place to be at peace with others and helping others do the same, being in acceptance of what is.

I am passionate about helping companies and people thrive. My gift in creating safe, trusting spaces for leaders to explore within themselves, serves in helping leaders develop a greater consciousness of what it is to live and lead in an ever-changing and challenging world.”

Mike has extensive experience partnering with companies on their cultural transformation journeys, supporting leaders in their own evolution and helping foster more cohesive and aligned teams within challenging environments. He was an early adopter of the Barrett Values Centre Culture Transformation Tools (CTT) and has worked deeply with the tools and methodologies in varying contexts. He is passionate about helping to develop others to do the same using these powerful approaches.

Mike’s work spans leadership development, team cohesion, strategic facilitation and structural alignment, including leadership training experiences growing people, emotional awareness, communication and process improvement that are core offerings within the BW Leadership Institute’s purpose to illuminate potential and ignite human connection.
