Benefits of my approach

Working in a transformative way doesn't mean me becoming indispensable to you but empowering you with what you need to succeed without me! My role is as a catalyst, enabler, helping you to see and frame your experiences courageously whilst holding a vision of what's possible (and increasingly necessary).

Co-creative and collaborative from the start

You are the experts in your work - I support you to harness this potential at greater levels by fostering the conditions for thinking and working well together

Empowering individuals with the skills needed to succeed

Whether this is thinking strategically to harness support to implement effective change or empowering others with coaching skills to shift culture by having courageous conversations - learning is scaffolded for greater personal and team growth 

Creating direct feedback loops

Breaking down (to reform on stronger foundations whilst keeping what's useful) limiting beliefs and systemic barriers, highlighting challenges that can be turned into opportunities - creating psychologically safe spaces along with tools to have more reflective, collaborative and generative conversations

What Makes Me Different

We all have our unique gifts and talents as well as leadership competencies that we are actively cultivating, these are mine...

Modelling Courage

Integrity and professionalism are amongst my core business values - it's really important for me to walk my talk and lead by example demonstrating what's possible. And yes, I'm going to make mistakes along the way but owning up to those is also important modelling / learning.

Growth Mindset

Admittedly this one comes easily to me as I have a love of learning. However, this does take me outside of my comfort zone, into uncertainty / a place of not knowing. Yet,  this is where insight and emergent growth lives. Having the language and developing skills is key to having courageous conversations

Heart, mind and body

Utilising the wisdom of my whole body is something I've really had to work on as I'm naturally quite a cerebral person. The gifts are well worth it especially developing emotional intelligence and competency over time and with practice. This is the point of healing, connection, belonging and participation.

FAQ

Why is culture change so difficult?

Because we often don't talk about historical context and legacy issues at play, implicit values and the cultural assumptions being made. We need the tools, spaces and willing participants to support us to do this in a safe way.

Getting started, what often gets in the way

Fear is a big one for not knowing where to start with culture change! Getting it wrong, the repercussions and risk of reputational damage.

Why inclusion is not enough

Inclusion is important but not enough on its own. We don't just want to be included / fit in but want to be active participants of cultural evolution, to be our authentic selves and feel like we are accepted and belong. Taking the best of what's served us and leaving behind what doesn't.

What do we need to be thinking about?

Fostering the conditions for courageous conversations in psychologically safe ways and spaces is the starting point. There are a number of ways to implement this practically.
