A chartered Work & Organisational Psychologist and seasoned HR Strategist, I have over 25 years’ experience partnering with senior business leaders across a wide range of sectors, industries and geographies. From creating and implementing Leadership and Executive development programmes, to designing talent development and succession planning strategy, to implementing a wide range of high-impact and sustainable change programmes including organisation restructure, position rationalisation & broad banding, organisastion culture & values definition and embedding, and much more besides.
Specialising in Organisation Effectiveness and Talent Development strategy, I have led the successful implementation of a broad range of Organisation, Leadership and Team development programmes. My career leverages my professional qualifications and deep breadth of experience, as well as 17 years’ in the Reserve Defence Forces. The structure and discipline of the latter has equipped me with a high level of transferable organisational skills and experience of dealing with a wide range of stakeholders at various levels.
My approach is simple, seek first to understand the true need of the client and then meet them where they are at with tailored, sustainable solutions designed to deliver well defined measurable outcomes.
Our brains are always trying to simplify what is going on in the world around us, thus often we cannot accurately articulate what’s truly going on – because we are focused on the symptoms. I use my coaching and facilitation skills to help individuals, teams and organisations uncover the real issues and opportunities, as a result of which we can respond more skillfully knowing we are working with the real need, using proven strategies to enable the individual, team or organisation to grow and thrive.
Cognisant of the volatile, uncertain, and often ambiguous context within which Organisations must operate, making the complex simple is a core strength of mine. A skilled business coach and facilitator, with well in excess of 10,000 hours delivery experience, I work with senior executives and leaders enabling them to unleash and capitalise on their own, their teams’ and their organisation’s potential.
Passionate about enabling Organisations, Teams and Employees to get the best from each other, I use evidence-based and innovative practices to help deliver the desired outcomes. Central to my effectiveness are my coaching, facilitation and mentoring skills. Using a tailored approach to define wider issues, I can help to develop and implement an organisational strategy to ensure the success of any talent development initiative.
