Helena Clayton | About Me
Helena Clayton - About MeBorn and raised in the South Wales coal mining valleys, I headed up to London after graduating and began my working life in a series of strategic and operational HR roles, experiencing first-hand the vast difference it makes to be managed badly or well.

I spent seven wonderful years at Roffey Park Institute, where I really learned my trade: their philosophy, rooted in 60 years of self-managed learning, still underpins my approach today. There, I spent most of my time doing what I do best – working with clients and colleagues to design and deliver impactful leadership development programmes. In later years I joined the Executive Team and discovered for myself the skills and behaviours needed to successfully lead an organisation, including through a harsh economic downturn. Then I moved to become Director at Blue Sky Performance Improvement establishing their Leadership Development Practice.

For the past ten or so years, I have been an independent consultant – and I really do love it. My work with my clients is unfailingly varied, plentiful and stimulating, and I am able to choose the projects that most excite and challenge me, for which I feel hugely grateful.

As well as my own clients, I work as an Associate. I regularly return to Roffey Park as part of their Faculty for the MSc in People and Organisational Development. I also work with London Business School as a Programme Director and with Mayvin Consulting. For my own development, I meet with my Coaching and Practice Supervisor every month, as well as regularly attending personal development workshops.

I have an MSc in Leadership and Learning, an ICF accredited coaching qualification, and am qualified to use tools such as MBTI and FIRO-B. I also trained as a teacher of the Hoffman Process.  

I’m currently researching the role of love in leadership and so you might like to subscribe to my monthly Newsletter here.

Please do get in touch – I very much look forward to finding out more about you.

Leading from Love
