Sonia Stojanovic
Biography & Resources


Sonia Stojanovic is a consultant with McKinsey & Co. and founder of Integrative Journeys, aimed at organizational design and implementation of personal and transformational culture change.

Over the course of three and a half years, Sonia Stojanovic led a struggling and fragmented ANZ Bank through a change process called “Breakout” that set a new standard in corporate cultural transformation. Stojanovic, with consultation from McKinsey & Co., created a program that took more than 21,000 employees through personal development workshops. In addition to changing how people related to each other at work, the workshops catalyzed an overhaul of the bank's internal practices and inspired the creation of a whole array of community service programs. The results have been dramatic: previously the least preferred employer in Australian financial services, ANZ is now an employer of choice; staff satisfaction increased by thirty-five percent in four years. The bank has won “Australian Bank of the Year” for three years running, and its stock price has more than doubled.

Prior to consulting with ANZ, Sonia was Human Resources Director for Heinz Asia region, undertaking strategic and operational HR in a virtual environment along with a number of large acquisition and merger projects. Sonia also spent several years with Shell in a number of senior roles including Quality Manager, Strategic Partnering and Senior Organizational Development consulting.
