Working with me
A few ideas about what it’s like to work with me…
A Human Approach
It’s better to practice getting comfortable with ambiguity in working together, rather than painting over the cracks with a standard process.
I find many of my working relationships begin with an extended period of not being sure where we are going. I find that if we’re patient with that uncertainty, we open ourselves to more powerful, serendipitous insight.
I share my experiences of working with people for 20 years in my blog.

In Praise of Fuzziness
I’m wary of standard processes with numbered stages, boxes and arrows. Human relationships can’t be run according to a simple formula.
Some of the most interesting things happen when we’re patient with uncertainty which means something really new can emerge.
Sometimes waiting, sometimes provoking
There’s something paradoxical about most creative work. Sometimes, the best things happen when I’m silent and sometimes when I’m more challenging.
Coaching allows us to practice different ways of performing. I see it as a playful rehearsal space.
The magic of moments
One way to get an idea of what floats my boat is to listen to my little podcast, Unhurried Moments. They’re short, typically 5-7 minutes and each one explores the possibilities we have for a richer engagement with life, in moments big and small.
Here are a few sample episodes.

What can you get from working with me?
I work on a range of issues with clients. Most of my work is with teams but I also work one-on-one. Let’s have a chat to see if my approach feels right to you.
Shall we have a chat to see if we get on?
