For many years I have helped people build teams and organisational cultures where ‘everyone leads’. For me, to lead means:
This kind of leading also usually means being naturally oriented towards a larger social, economic or environmental purpose. And these are the people and teams I choose to work with.
I’ve many years experience of this – with progressive businesses, with co-operative and employee-owned businesses, in education, and occasionally in the public sector. Along the way I’ve gathered and developed a host of practical methods and tools. Tools that support better communication, effective shared decision-making (e.g. as in Sociocracy), and Agile working.
As well as coaching and facilitating teams, I have had a lot of hands-on business experience – including as an SME Director and Exec Chair, and as a startup MD. I work independently and in partnership with Then Somehow and Practical Governance.
