“I used to be more future-oriented: rigorous planning, talking of sustainable change, imagining that the changes, I and others, were involved in would endure. I now see that changes cannot be “built in”; we and the world are too complex. The quality of the future we want has to be present in the here and now. The key to creating the future is a shift in our being and how we act, now. As you start on the way, the way appears: one meeting, one conversation, one decision at a time. This has been a process of reconsidering, not a single moment of insight.”
John describes himself as a ‘systems alchemist’ who curates transformational learning experiences to release human potential. He specialises in working with complex challenges that involve multiple stakeholders; creating the conditions for fundamental shifts in performance and realising personal and organisational purpose.
His approach pays attention to the multiple factors at play in any situation: the interrelationship between the individual, team and the wider system; the interface between strategic priorities of the organisation, leadership behaviour and the organisation’s culture. His experience is that personal and organisational transformation comes from engaging head, heart, gut and spirit. Clients describe John’s style as challenging and warm-hearted, rigorous and inspiring. John pioneered the introduction of Barry Oshry’s human systems frameworks to organisations across Europe and accredits trainers in Power+Systens’ methodologies.
John is based in the UK.
