I work with business leaders to help them develop their careers, grow their businesses and manage organisational change.
Many business leaders are highly skilled in their area of specialism – but are struggling to achieve transformational change with and through others.
As a result they’re often concerned about how they can motivate and enable their employees to improve performance, manage change and drive business growth.
I generally work with clients who are trying to drive through significant changes in their business or career and are finding that people issues are getting in the way. Do any of these sound like you?
“The organisation is going through lots of change and uncertainty. I want to do what I can to support and motivate my team through this difficult time”
“The organisation has grown significantly over recent years including a number of acquisitions and reorganisations. We’re at a stage now where we need to start operating as a major player but it still feels like a group of separate entities with everyone operating in their own silos.”
“I’ve got some great people in my team. I want to get the best out of them and help them realise their potential”
“I’ve got some really ambitious goals and targets I need to deliver and I’m nervous about whether everyone in my team is up to it. I need them to take more ownership and responsibility for delivering results”
“My department has just been through a restructure. I have a brand new team that I need to develop – quickly!”
“I’m keen to get promoted to a senior position but unsure about how I can make that happen”
“I’ve just taken on a new leadership role and need to establish my authority and credibility with my direct reports as well as my new boss and the other managers I work with”
I have found that I have had the greatest success with clients who:
- Are “customers for change” i.e. they want something to be different and are willing to take personal responsibility and action to make that change happen
- Make use of the resources available to them and are willing to seek out and accept the help they need
- Believe in their people and want to support them in doing their best for themselves and the organisation
Although I’m based in Newcastle upon Tyne and am passionate about the North East, I work all over the country and have many clients in London and across the UK.
