“Engaging”, “Authentic” and “Empathic” was good to hear when asking people to describe me. “Observant” and “Scarily insightful” made me smile! For these and others, I am both humbled and emboldened by their trust support, and feedback over the years.
As an experienced coach and coach supervisor, I am passionate about supporting and developing leaders beyond their current capacity, beyond what they currently believe to be possible.
In looking beyond the current day to day interactions, I like to challenge leaders to think on a bigger, grander and more long-term scale. Alongside this, I see organisational development as a deliberate strategic intervention to deliver results. I am constantly looking at new and innovative ways to improve individual, team and organisational performance.
The opportunity lies in pursuing and unleashing untapped individual leadership potential. These resources may be blocked at the individual, the team, or the organisational level.
Whatever the resistance, this is where the greatest learning lies. Enabling leaders, teams and organisations to break free from this, and break free from these constraints, is what gets me up in the morning!
This is so relevant at the moment, as we help people understand and explore the opportunities of “Teal” management. Experience shows me the impact that self-management principles can have on building ownership, personal accountability, and the ability of an organisation to rapidly adapt in today’s fast changing business environment.
The other part I really enjoy is my preferred, experiential way of exploration, through the use of creative and innovative coaching tools; Notably our The Experiential Metaphor™ has a track record of producing long term, memorable and motivational results.
As someone recently described it, “The use of physical metaphors by Chris, really gets to the heart of the matter and enables extraordinary transformation.”
I look forward to speaking to you!
