My ethos is Straight Forward Thinking. I set clear standards and measure my own performance to back up exactly what this means.
In all the business coaching and training I give, I promote the idea that what really sets great leaders apart is their capacity for humility and empathy. I try and practise what I preach.
I do an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay. I am open and transparent, I keep you informed about everything that is going on, I speak plain English (if you catch me talking management gobbledygook you have my permission to have at me with a big stick) and I am mindful of your operational realities.
I support you in looking to the future with optimism. I will get you to focus on defining clearly what it is that you want your business to achieve, and help set up simple systems with which to measure whether you are or not. I will look at all the management information available and interpret it so you make the most of it for forward planning
I will challenge you and I will inspire you. With a fresh angle on how you give your people what they need to do their jobs well, you will think in new ways about your role, learn and decide for yourself what needs to change. A meeting with me is a chance for you to stop the day-job, to take a deep breath and to reflect. I help you gain powerful insights into how the way you do things compares to best practice. As a result, you will take the wider view and enjoy the journey.
