Leaders considered "a great leader" by their peers
Current level of employee engagement
CEOs who believe a lack of trust is their greatest concern
Failure rate of change initiatives
I focus on building cultures of trust and transparency that encourage healthy debate rather than conlict, and understanding rather than assumption.
I work with leaders to be self aware, resilient and inspiring, enabling them to navigate a complex and uncertain business world.
I help teams develop strong and trusting relationships by building the knowledge and skills in how to create collaborative environments and how to effectively resolve conflict.
Not every technical specialist wants to become a people leader. Therefore I offer programs that develop the skills that specialists need to build their credibility and influence.
How I work with you
Identify the issues
Before I commence any program I spend time talking with you and your people to understand what the root causes are to your issues.
Develop the strategy
I work closely with you to develop a customised program that aligns with your company direction and values.
Implement the program
I can use coaching, consulting, and / or facilitation to deliver the solutions and maximise benefits.
Return on investment
Together we will agree on the criteria we use to monitor progress and value.
Resistance is greatest when our aspirations are most at risk.
How to get more than lip service on your next proposal.
It’s like healthy eating,
we know that we should do it,
we just need the reason why.

What is Conversational Intelligence ®?
Conversational Intelligence ® or C-IQ is a revolutionary approach to leadership and business development. Based on neuroscience, it focuses on how every conversation has an impact.
Many understand the benefits of Emotional Intelligence which is about awareness of self. It is I-centric. C-IQ is We-centric. It is about learning how to connect, navigate and grow with each other.
In an organisational context mastery of C-IQ opens up people’s minds to inquiry and exploration generating new solutions, products & services.
How does Conversational Intelligence® work?
C-IQ works by regulating the networks and chemistry in the brain which impact your mood, your responses and your thinking.
By mastering conversational intelligence you are able to control and navigate the energy and outcome of even the most difficult conversation through knowing the patterns of conversation that activate the higher level brain and thinking.
What are the benefits of Conversational Intelligence ®?
Conversationally intelligent cultures create safe environments for people to raise and challenge ideas, and talk about difficult things without fear of retribution or judgement. They build and sustain trust and relationships which are key to high performing teams and achieving spectacular results. They open the door for the conversations that were once avoided, to be had with candor and care.
