Julia Margaret Kukard

With almost 30 years of experience in learning and development, Julia has worked globally including in South Africa, UK, Lesotho, Ghana, France, Uganda, Netherlands, Brazil, India, UAE and China with multinationals, nationals, governments and NGOs.  Julia’s experience includes working with individuals and groups as a coach, psycho-educator and more recently as an Existential Psychotherapist.

She graduated from University of Cape Town (UCT) with an Honours degree and MA in Art History, an MBA from the Graduate School of Business (GSB) and a BA in Psychology and Art History. Julia is currently engaged in a Doctorate in Existential Psychotherapy at the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling in London in conjunction with Middlesex University. Her research focusses on leadership stuckness using the work of Heidegger, Sartre, Fanon and Biko to understand this phenomenon.

Julia has co-developed the AIM assessment with Simon Kettleborough and Lucille Greeff which measures enneagram personality orientation and maturity/identity expansion. During the past nine years, Julia has run the Advanced Leadership elective on the UCT GSB MBA, focussing on leadership maturation and stuckness, and co-written a book on this with Dean Kai Peters from Ashridge University and Professor Kurt April from the GSB in this regard.
