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.

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 […]

“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 […]

“I started my working life in large organisations and appreciated the intelligence, complexity and creativity I found around me. However, after a number of years I began to feel that the full strengths and potential of many of the members of these systems – including my own – were not being used. I reconsidered what […]

Four practices for developing authentic leadership

There’s crisis of leadership in many modern organisations:  Who are they serving? What is their essence? How should they operate? Can they really claim to be demonstrating authentic leadership? This week reveals the most shocking analysis of how a major ‘public service’, South Yorkshire police, not only systematically covered up, for 27 years, its culpability […]

“I have always had a strong interest in people and groups and understanding why we do the things we do. At the level of the individual I hear many common stories and visions among many different people. As a collective I find it fascinating that we appear largely unable to realise these visions and create […]

“Over the first decade of my career, I reconsidered how transformational change shows up in the world. It comes from acquiring more knowledge and skills and from experiential learning, finding the leader within, a focus on purpose/strategy and being able to see the systems we work in through the eyes of varied stakeholders. I believe […]

  “Before I began working in leadership development I thought it was about introducing leaders to theories and telling them to implement them. Working with leaders from all backgrounds led me to reconsider my assumptions. I realised that leaders who follow models slavishly will not achieve the followership they seek. Leadership starts with “know thyself”. […]

Over the years, as life circumstances changed, I constantly considered what ‘meaningful work’ means for me. What previously gave me meaning, working on global, macro issues, now had to share the space with new, micro issues such as my family. My new life mix catalysed a profound change. I reconsideredsuccess. Not just as an idea, or a financial measurement, but as a practice using ‘Right Livelihood’. I define this as ‘meaningful, self-sustaining work on behalf of people and planet’. I believe that if we all defined success in this way, then we stand a chance of creating a sustainable future for our children’s children.”[/column_grid_8][/column_wrapper]

Reconsidering Leadership Development

What is Leadership? I ask the question, as I believe that most of the time, most people, have difficulty answering this question (let along, What is Leadership Development?). The difficulty lies in that leadership is a social phenomenon, which appears differently depending on the context. Leadership within a group of fire fighters evacuating a building […]

Communities of Practice: it’s about loving the work

I recently had the privilege of working both with my colleague, George Pòr and the NHS in Yorkshire and Humber on a project involving the establishment of a network of Communities of Practice (CoP’s). George is an expert in introducing CoP’s in Europe and the client in the NHS was hungry to learn. Communities of […]
