I am the Chief Executive of the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations (TIHR). I am a chartered organisational psychologist and a registered Gestalt psychotherapist, working as leadership and management coach, process consultant and supervisor when I am not busy managing the daily activities of the TIHR and planning for its sustainable and prosperous future.
My work is informed by ideas of emergence and self-organisation as well as dialogue and power dynamics and includes developing skills and attitudes to working in conditions of uncertainty and ambiguity. I help, support and challenge managers through their journey of growth by inviting them to think about and reflect upon their flow of experience as leaders in their organisations.
Since 2007 I have directed and innovated the TIHR’s Group Relations Leicester conference ‘Authority, Role, Organisation ’ and am passionate about its application to understanding leadership development, ethical practice and socio-political changes in different cultural landscapes.
