Leadership

We support our clients and their stakeholders to press pause, reconsider the future they want and help build the awareness and capacity to get there. Everything we do or say is an invitation to reconsider the present and to consider new futures.

Do you have your own fool?

Recent political events have shown us all again how dangerous it is to surround ourselves with a closed circle who may just echo our own thoughts and may even actively insulate us from diverse ideas or concerns. Just ask Teresa May! But this is not just a problem for political leaders who can quickly find […]

Living Life on Purpose

Steven Covey (in his less well known book, “First Things First”) asks the question: “Do you live your life by the clock or by the compass?” For now I will put aside the issues arising from “busyness and time focus” implied by the clock metaphor (a future blog) and focus on the compass. The request […]

Are you sleepwalking your way into professional prostitution?

I was part horrified and part fascinated. We were in a workshop entitled Transforming the Self and the System. Our facilitator had just shared a story of his dilemma when a coachee cancelled at short notice.  Should he charge a cancellation fee or not? What were his boundaries and how would he hold them?

Theory U and You

The following poem was written at the Presenting Institute U-Theory Foundation Program in March 2017… To move from a here to a there. To go from a now to a then, without a rope ladder or a safety net. But with Angel wings. To move, pause, and look and listen and feel and pause again. […]

I built my value propositions around that key idea and its practical implications for organisation design, innovation, culture change, communities of practice, and just about any client assignment that I worked on.

“Humans have huge capacity for growth and change. I used to believe that with commitment to creating new mindsets, clarity of purpose and focusing on creating the positive “weather”, organisations would thrive. I knew that when things got ‘stuck’, having the courage to stay with it would allow creativity, courage and dialogue to emerge. My […]

“I started my career fascinated by technology and how that could revolutionise business. I then became fascinated to explore why so many projects failed! The crucial “missing” was often the people. So I started to reconsider what was needed for success and herein began my journey of self-development for the sake of enabling me to […]

“Spending many years observing leadership and its impact on the world I have always been fascinated by what the conditions for leadership are. I came to realise that authentic leadership is a twin trail – not just the outer trail of having effect in the world but also the inner trail of self-awareness and development. […]

“The ability to see ourselves and our world from different perspectives is particularly necessary considering the precarious state of things in this frontier century. But like all necessary changes requiring growth, reconsideration is a courageous act. I am no stranger to the irresistible call of a Great Leap, and the trembling that comes from standing […]

“During the Noughties, I was privileged to work on some of the largest and most demanding projects in Shell. In 2009 I had the opportunity to reconsider my future and to take my skills beyond the oil and gas industry. This would provide me with the opportunity to learn from different organisations and to test […]
