Sharing Her Insights

Through her blog AND whitepapers

I never stop thinking about how to make leadership more effective, much easier, and more satisfying.

Doing my training as a psychologist, I was taught to look at the evidence first, and identify how to translate that into practice. This is the ‘scientist-practitioner’ model. It has served me very well. And I use it in service to better leadership.

When it comes to leadership, I don’t think more has been written about many other topics. Not all of it is helpful. Not all of it has a research-base. Probably more is misleading than is helpful.

Since Lee Iaccoca published his eponymous ‘Iaccoca’ in 1984 we have been captured by the cult of the hero leader. It is past time to put that to rest. Inclusive leadership that serves the organisation’s needs rather than self-serving individual careers is what we need as we head into the 2020s and huge uncertainty.

My goal is that through my writing and my programs I can contribute to improving leadership so that it is seen as a service not an entitlement.  Please enjoy.

I have four series of Whitepapers that distill relevant evidence into workable actions.

The Generative Leadership series focuses on coaching, coaching culture, collaboration and psychological safety. The Inclusive Leadership series focuses on removing bias from leadership and making it more inclusive. The FlexAble Leader whitepapers, focusing on how to be a high achieving leader without suffering burnout, turned into my FlexAbility book; check out either the whitepapers, the book, or both! 

My latest series is focused on influence: leaders want more of it, want to be more flexible with it and want to use it authentically, and this series will help you to do all those things and more.
