Daniel Byrnes 

Executive, Change Leader, Capability Builder

I joined Leaders on Demand because I love supporting executive teams and organisations to perform at their absolute best. I thrive on advisory, facilitative or project-based roles where I can support leaders to navigate complex change and realign strategy, capability and operations to meet complex new challenges. Leaders on Demand is a collective of top- notch professionals with strong values aligned to my own, and I know the team has always got my back.

My mission is to turn confusion into clarity, misery into motivation, clunkiness into capability and mediocrity into mastery. And to get executives as excited and passionate about the art of leadership as I am, so that it becomes the most energising and fulfilling part of their working lives. And to create high-performing organisations, healthier workplaces and happier people in the process.

I lead with smarts, heart and a strong sense of values. And a passion for organisational learning & continuous improvement. Clients value my extensive toolkit and eclectic career experience spanning military leadership, operations management, CPO and interim P&C roles,  strategy & change consulting,  MBA teaching, C-Suite facilitation and executive coaching. Contrary to the military stereotype, I am an empathic and facilitative leader but I’m not afraid to constructively challenge misaligned beliefs, systems, processes and behaviours.  And I don’t let people I work with take the soft option or fall short of their potential.
