I am passionate about collaborative leadership and the power of learning through doing rather than through theory. I believe that leadership is an art which cannot be taught through theory. Each leader needs to develop their own formula for dealing with issues, for communicating and for achieving the performance of their team.
I focus on creating the environment for leaders to develop that formula in a challenging yet supportive environment.
As a facilitator and coach, I am calm, empathetic and approachable. I know when to intervene but more importantly when to say nothing at all, even during those awkward silences to allow amazing things to unfold. There is nothing more rewarding than to be quietly witnessing great leaders grow in front of your very eyes.
My previous experience as senior manager means that I have witnessed first-hand the daily challenges of leadership and have experienced the impact that great leadership development initiatives can make on individuals, teams and organisations.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time in the great outdoors and the peace that it can bring (if both dogs and both children are in the right mood)!
