Biography

My focus is helping leaders connect to what really matters most to them and their people; and unleashing the latent potential within their organisation to be able to confront their seemingly intractable challenges. This creates a workplace environment where people thrive; where trusting relationships are formed; people act with integrity; and loyalty and collaboration is fostered. In so doing, extraordinary performance becomes the norm not the exception. We founded WhyNot to make this difference and transform the nature of work.

I’m an organisational psychologist and certified executive coach with over 20 years of experience in supporting organisations, teams and leaders at all levels bring out the best in themselves and their people, enabling them to address their own adaptive challenges and give access to a new realm of performance.

This creates a workplace environment where people thrive and extraordinary performance becomes the norm.

My passion is working with leaders and teams that are looking for a step change in performance and are inspired by new possibilities for themselves and their people. This includes supporting leaders to develop a strengths based culture focused on enhancing people’s talents rather than correcting their weaknesses. At a 1-to-1 level I thrive on coaching leaders to be the best that they can be.

What I’m really good at:

  • Organisational and Leadership development
  • Programme design and implementation
  • Cultural assessment and transformation

Let’s talk

Responding to COVID-19

We’re continuing to support all our clients during these uncertain times, as they navigate through the various challenges facing their organisations. Generally our work is about supporting people to take on new challenges and building the capability to lead when you don’t know the answer - and through this crisis we’re enabling our clients to do this from a place of care. Something is happening during these times that resonates with us on a deeply human level. It has made us realise how closely we are all connected and how new levels of trust, empathy and caring for one another must be part of how we organise ourselves moving forwards.

We’ve been gathering learnings, building on our experience and we’d be happy to share these with you. We are supporting many other leaders as they think through how to ‘re-generate’ their businesses and create the next version of themselves based on what matters most.               

Over the next few weeks you will see our COVID-19 Resource Centre on Our Insights page offering our latest learnings and thinking. If you’d like to explore our approach further, we’d be happy to have an informal chat.

Stay safe, The WhyNot Team
