Sharing Her Insights
Through her blog, published whitepapers, and quizzes
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.

Quizzes to help you discover your leadership styles
Improving your leadership starts with understanding where you’re at right now. Then articulating where you want to be. The gap between the two is your development opportunity.
What’s the best way to understand where you’re at right now? Assessing yourself against a structured reliable framework, and getting feedback from others. Try my quizzes to help you understand more about your leadership and influencing styles.
