A solicitor by training, and with a background in organisational psychiatry and psychology, I’ve had the privilege to work with and observe outstanding leaders who are making real impact in the world. I’ve studied what drives them and now, through Wyman Associates, I share with my clients how they too can achieve the clarity, vision and purpose that leads to wise choices, better decision making and cultures where all can thrive.
My approach is dialogic and influenced by the work of some outstanding thinkers: Nancy Kline, David Bohm, William Isaacs and Robert Greenleaf. I believe Greenleaf’s ‘best test’ for a servant leaders is a a marker for any organisation, whether in the public or private sector – it asks: Do those served grow as persons? Do they, while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants? And, what is the effect on the least privileged in society? With they benefit or at least not be further deprived?
My work is informed by my experience as a board member, academic and regulator. I am an Ambassado r with the International Integrated Reporting Council, a global organisation transforming the way corporations do business, and I also sit on the Faculty of the NHS’s London Leadership Academy where I have a special interest in inclusion and diversity.
Alongside Wyman Associates I am Founder and Chair of Fulcrum Leaders , a forum to promote dialogue, the exchange of ideas and the exploration of subjects to expand understanding and gain insight. A practising Buddhist I believe everyone has the wisdom, courage and compassion to make a positive difference in the world.
