About Leah

Leah Mether helps people get out of their own way and step up for success with the development of soft skills.

She is a speaker, trainer, coach, facilitator and author known for her direct, enthusiastic and relatable style.

With a background in leadership, corporate communications and journalism, Leah works with executives, leaders and employees across Australia to help them improve their communication, mindset and self-management.

Her work is based on the belief that soft skills are the new hard; we are our own biggest roadblock to success; and no-one is a perfect communicator, everyone can improve.

Leah’s first book, Soft is the New Hard: How to Communicate Effectively Under Pressure, has been described as “a masterclass in communication” and a “personal coaching session for leaders”.

Leah lives in the small town of Willow Grove overlooking Blue Rock Lake in Gippsland, Victoria with her husband and three energetic sons.

She is a dedicated community volunteer, a trained speaker for beyondblue, and a chocoholic.
