I believe that the natural state of the human being is to be fully expressed, uninhibited, without doubt or fear to perform, to learn and to enjoy,

 a state in which there is access to all the innate resources born to us:

Genius.

 

I am a thought-leader and innovator in the realm of excellence and coaching with extensive experience spanning over twenty-five years. My practise deals in the areas of writing, speaking, coaching and consultancy

Speaking

Consulting

I speak on topics concerning excellence,

 self-expression, performance and learning.  The Pillars of Genius; Enabling Genius, Effective Coaching, Coaching and Leadership are all recent titles. Speeches are memorable, to the point, challenging, funny and frequently irreverent.

I work on large scale projects delivering organizational change, as well as advise and support in corporate coaching initiatives and ‘Explorations’ to create innovate solutions to intractable problems.

Coaching

I train leaders and managers to support their teams to learn and perform to their highest levels; Team Coaching enabling leadership or project teams to work together to deliver extraordinary goals; Executive  Coaching to people in business who are facing extraordinary challenges, whether that is a problem or an opportunity:

'Meeting the Challenge'.

The eCoaching system is an automated coaching approach designed to provide impactful coaching to the many (not just the few), affordably.  The eCoaching enables the user to perform to higher levels, to learn and develop.  The system can be adapted to meet local needs,  developed as a bespoke programme and  made available in any language.  Current programmes include: the Performance eCoach; the Learning and Development eCoach.

 

The system works by helping people understand a given situation, imagine solutions and strategies, decide on the most effective way forward and then review actions taken until their goals are achieved.
