We lead out of who we are.
My focus is on helping leaders and organisations change and grow. I help leaders focus on what really matters to them – within themselves, in their teams, and across the wider business.
Every project begins by developing a good understanding of what each client wants and needs through diagnostic work and fact-finding. This may challenge your thinking about what’s needed – that’s part of my role – but it means we’re able to build a programme together that is exactly what your leaders require. One that will deliver results, deep learning, new insight as well as inspire passion and trust.
At every stage of a programme, I build in simple, innovative approaches to ensure that change will actually happen. As well as face-t0-face, I have been designing blended programme for a while now and know what good digital design looks and feels like too.
So programmes might include input sessions, webinars and self managed learning, action learning groups, coaching, collaborative projects, experiential activities and experiments. These approaches draw deeply on participants’ existing knowledge, but are also supported by robust models and frameworks.
And although I’m always practical, I strongly believe that leadership development works best with a sense of playfulness and creativity and so that’s reflected in how we work too.
I’m also pleased to announce that I have a new leadership programme starting in September. At The Heart of Leadership brings together my many years of designing and running powerful leadership programmes with my more recent work on love in leadership. It’s bold, but explores some essential leadership questions for our times. You can learn more and book your place here.
I’m also rethinking what I mean when I talk about leadership and you can see where my thinking is starting to take me in this blog exploring ‘eldership’.
