I’m a leadership development thinker and practitioner. I do my best work when I’m helping restless go-getters to get unstuck, or maybe step it up a notch, so they can get on with making the impact they want to make. ‘Restless go-getters’ can be individuals, teams or whole organisations.
I work with clients all over the world to grow and strengthen their leadership. I’m kind of like the swordsmith that creates the beautiful sword: by applying the right amount of heat, in the right way, you get a strong, authentic and lasting outcome. Regardless of where you’re at, it’s about growing to your next level.
My clients say I’m genuine, a lateral thinker, warm and engaging. And also challenging and grounded.
I’ve accumulated years of business experience as a chartered accountant, recruiter, business manager and entrepreneur. And for the past 20 years, I’ve honed my expertise in adult development – how people learn, change and grow. I keep myself grounded by getting out there in nature on a regular basis: living in New Zealand lets me access it pretty easily! I’m into windsurfing, surfing, stand up paddle boarding, snowboarding and mountain biking – anything that has a bit of an ‘edge’ to it. And I bring that mindset into my work.
I offer a suite of pragmatic solutions, including leadership development programmes, career development programmes, workshops and coaching. These are all about helping you address the classic challenges leaders face – engaging and developing staff, leading in ambiguity and complexity, and crafting a clear and compelling direction for you and the people you lead – in a way that leverages your unique strengths and vision.
If you’re a restless go-getter who wants to make a difference, or you’re looking for ideas about how to grow your leadership talent, you’ll be right at home here. Get in touch for a chat.
