Andrew McNeill has spent 20 years in senior leadership, most recently consulting on a £7bn national programme. Throughout his career he has led large teams in high pressure environments.

He is also an accredited mindfulness teacher and brought these two worlds together in his book “Organisational Mindfulness – a How-to Guide” in 2019, which has sold in 4 continents. By integrating his leadership experience and insights from being a mindfulness teacher Andrew has developed a method to help leaders and their teams embed and implement techniques which improve performance, build psychological safety and support their own and their collective wellbeing.

Andrew co-founded LXLeaders to be able to share these tools with other teams and leaders. He specialises in working with teams enabling them to connect better and listen to each other. Andrew also works directly with leaders, helping them to thrive through the challenges and opportunities of leadership. His techniques have assisted teams and individuals navigate very real challenges and to communicate with honesty and kindness.

Practice Workplace Mindfulness

He approached it with deep scepticism but found these well established evidence based methods worked in the modern workplace. It vastly improved his wellbeing and delivered a step change in his performance which is why he studied to become a mindfulness teacher. Andrew now introduces teams and individuals to these life changing, team transforming skills: in practical, down to earth ways.
