“I think of myself as a corporate contemplative. I have been working in organisations at senior levels for 30 years. I work with groups and one to one. I am a practicing zen buddhist, author and thinker. I love supervision and everything it offers both practitioners and their clients. I like to work creatively, collaboratively and in lively challenging ways. Learning agility, insights and increasing confidence are at the heart of my supervision practice. i am very interested in where coaching as a practice is moving to and therefore how coaches need to open and expand what they understand by their work to meet contemporary challenges. I use mindfulness as a way of helping people to access and embed their learning.
I lead retreats, run a social action fund that aims to help people take their mindful insights of the meditation cushion and use them in practice in the world. i write and speak at conferences on the topics of mindfulness, challenger leadership, resilience and compassion. I think of my work as a strong challenge to habitual thinking. I think of supervision as a process for heart, mind and results. It is all practice not “perfect”!
