This is done best in partnership with an experienced thinking partner.
As a senior leader in your company, you deserve the best help you can get in delivering on your purpose, navigating change and growth, building and retaining world-class teams, delighting your customers.
You can choose to stop feeling burdened by pressures and constraints.
Instead CHOOSE to and prioritise and own your development.
Immerse yourself in a bespoke leadership development programme and fully benefit from a safe and confidential space to open up, reflect on your key growth questions and opportunities, gain insights, move forward into action with clarity and confidence.
Then CHOOSE to focus on the development of your leadership team.
This will help improve your collective leadership and performance, instil a deeper sense of connection and trust, align on the why, the what and the how, in order to generate real value in the organisation and for stakeholders.
Challenges we can work through
Having seen hundreds of business leaders and teams at work, I understand the types of challenges you might be faced with. We can work together to address them.
the dark side of fast growth
unclear purpose and strategy
tension, conflict and lack of trust
poor standards, structure and processes
Preservation and evolution of organisational culture
Identifying new ways to respond to external conditions
What types of clients I can add most value to:
Adding value requires trust and partnership. Given my experience, values and beliefs, I know I can best add value to certain types of organisations.
I’m in awe of organisations that are on a mission to make the world a better place and build products and services that their clients will love.
More specifically, I come alongside young, innovative, and entrepreneurial organisations. These often hold deep specialism and technical expertise, bringing innovation forth in industries such as Tech, Digital or Life Sciences.
They truly care about their employees and treat them fairly, providing them with opportunities to develop, grow and keep engaged.
Often I work with leaders who are ambitious, brave, interested to develop, have a strong emotional connection to their work, take calculated risks, are humble and comfortable asking for help. They understand that true success is achieved by working with others. They lead active lifestyles, have a sense of urgency, and are eager not to miss out on opportunities for growth.
I work across all senior levels in organisations:
- Founders, CEOs, CxOs
- Boards and Executive teams
- Leadership teams
My approach is to work alongside business leaders and teams, as a trusted thinking partner. As individuals and teams are unique, I work with each client to design bespoke interventions to release their innate abilities.
I bring to my work deep psychological insights, organisational authority and experience, and an understanding of the opportunities for reflexive, shared leadership in complex modern organisations.
Here are some examples of work we could do together:
From: Feeling of loneliness at the top; struggling with ongoing pressure; ad-hoc capability development; lack of personal roadmap and tactical plan
To: Excellent awareness about individual key strengths, gaps and development areas; clear map for your future and the organisation’s future; sense of clarity and confidence; improved leadership capability and effectiveness
From: Lack of awareness about collective strengths, gaps and development areas; lack of development agendas and learning priorities; insufficient feedback from others inside or outside of the team
To: Excellent awareness about the team’s strengths, gaps and development areas; clear priority areas and accountabilities; improved focus
From: Insufficient understanding of stakeholder’s expectations; lack of clarity and alignment around a compelling purpose and mission; unclear strategy, shared goals and priorities
To: A deep sense of shared purpose and direction, aligned with the stakeholder’s expectations and future needs of the organisation, expressed at collective and individual level
From: Avoidance of tension and conflict; a lack of trust in team relationships
To: Appreciating tension and challenge; igniting a culture of safety and trust, support and appreciation for differences where people feel comfortable to express themselves, contribute and challenge each other
From: The messiness and disorder from earlier stages of growth; lack of structure and effective processes – especially when working remotely
To: Having the right people in the right jobs; predictability, clear roles and responsibilities; addressing overlapping accountabilities; enablement of key processes and working principles

What do other leaders say?
Over to you.
I’m inviting you to press pause. A pause to think, reflect, take stock, gain clarity.
- are a Founder, CEO or Senior leader in a young entrepreneurial organisation, and
- are looking for support for yourself and/or your team, and
- would benefit from a confidential informal conversation about your particular aspirations and context
… then let’s grab a virtual coffee or tea together.
Slow down in order to accelerate.
