PH Factor is run by Pleasance Hansen, a management consultant specialising in executive coaching. She has over 13 years' human resource management experience, including five and a half years working in senior management positions in New Zealand’s public sector.

She has been the senior HR Manager for the National Library and GMHR Trade NZ (New Zealand Trade and Enterprise), and the Equal Employment Opportunities Manager for the Department of Justice (Ministry of Justice).

In these roles, she successfully developed and operationalised strategic imperatives that led to changes in organisational cultures.

Through customised training and development packages, Pleasance lifted organisational performance. She applied performance excellence principles and harnessed the potential of all staff by implementing Equal Employment Opportunity policies and practices.

Pleasance holds a Masters of Arts (Hons) in English and Education from Canterbury University, Christchurch, New Zealand and a Masters of Public Policy from Victoria University, Wellington, New Zealand. Her thesis focused on resistance to organisational change using the introduction of women prison officers into Auckland’s maximum-security prison as a case study.

Pleasance takes a strengths-based approach and has a passion for working with people and groups to achieve excellence. She also has a deep understanding of what constitutes a ‘world class organisation’. She uses her executive coaching, workshop facilitation and change management skills to deliver significant shifts within teams and to create high performing organisations.
