Leslie B. is no longer an active staff member.

Throughout my thirty years working in organisational and community leadership I have found myself nourished, on one hand, by the intersection of power, politics, and privilege, and on the other, by serving “the whole person”. I am preoccupied by the question: What does it mean to be a “whole person”? 

I draw on all areas of scholarly and creative thought to gather insights and freely share these to support the actions of my clients and colleagues. The key to my impact is that I am fully engaged in the struggle to face and embrace our whole selves, particularly in the boardroom; how we hold the creative and destructive, the entropic and the Telos, the light and shadow, remaining unshaken in the face of what emerges when we enter the recesses of the individual and collective psyche. 

To my mind, the mission of the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations is to understand the human capacity to create and destroy, so that we have the freedom to make saner and more harmonious choices. Time to Awaken. Whatever you are facing, if you want to work with the “whole person” and release the freedom to choose, then we are the consultancy and advisor for you.
