I’m still working on some content and snazzy design features, so please bear with me.
In the meantime, please feel free to have a look around.
What is your performance and learning strategy?
Whether driven by ambition at work, personal enrichment, or a simple curiosity challenge, the most successful people have a very clear understanding about how they learn and what this means for how they perform.
I work – consulting, designing, empowering, and evaluating – using powerful tools to create a strategic approach to performance and learning, which allows you to be the best version of yourself that you can be.
The things I do have a huge impact for you as an individual, as well as for the many and varied organisations with whom and for whom you work.
I love talking to new people, so please get in touch.
Are you a good learner? How do you think you perform?
I believe in the ability of everyone to improve their capacity for learning.
When they do this, they also raise their potential level of performance.
I offer a wide range of coaching and consultancy services, including mentoring, writing, speaking, and pride myself in developing long-lasting and, ultimately, highly-productive relationships with individuals and organisations.
MOTIVATED BY THE DESIRE TO PERFORM AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL
I AM SKILLED IN FACILITATING THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH-PEFORMING TEAMS AND INDIVIDUALS
FASCINATED BY THE SMALL STEPS WE TAKE TOWARDS LARGER GOALS
I SPECIALISE IN INTEGRATING LEARNING INTO THE WAY WE PERFORM IN OUR DAILY LIVES
COMMITTED TO CO-DEVELOPING SUSTAINABLE BEHAVIOURS
MY WORK SUPPORTS YOUR LEARNING : MY STYLE CELEBRATES YOUR PERFORMANCE
Four things I do
“The performance of an organisation is entirely determined by the performance of its employees.”
On the face of it, you might consider this to be a bold statement; but, remember, strategy, resources, finance (and whatever else you care to think of) neither manage nor lead themselves … this is only ever done by people.
For a global organisation, with a diversified workforce across languages, cultures, continents, time zones, and working practices, the performance of their employees is as key to their organisational performance as it is for a SME, which faces similar challenges, albeit on a different scale, and, indeed, for a solopreneur, who assumes sole responsibility for their own performance.
I am fascinated by getting these things right, and work alongside organisations and individuals to make sure they have the best chance of success.
Cast your mind back, for a minute, to your schooldays, and it is easy to identify the different types of learners who were in your class. Some, sat at the back of the room, paid little attention, but still scored top marks. Others were wholly more diligent, taking careful notes, and preparing assiduously.
In the workplace, there is often a disconnect between the things we are expected to know and the way we are expected to learn. Do you believe that learning, for example, is a isolated experience, or a process? Do you know things, or really understand them? Whether your responsibility is for one person or one hundred people, we neglect learning at our peril.
>I believe in the power of education to transform lives and futures, and work alongside organisations and individuals to connect knowledge, understanding, and performance.
