I am a facilitator, conciliator, highly organised and can think in the future. With over twenty years in a senior leadership position in tech services I am open to interesting opportunities and challenges.  In particular I can help you in three areas of organizational mentoring:

Ideas busting

You are just about to invest hard earned money in a new idea.  How do you know that your idea is the right one? Is it something that your consumers are prepared to  pay for? Do you know the effect that it will have upon your existing business? Do you understand the associated risks?

Businesses run on ideas yet the human mind is lazy. It jumps to conclusions, is open to suggestion and gives up once an initial answer is achieved. To create good and workable ideas a process is required to understand their real implications.

By carefully unpicking the ideas through targeted questioning and exploration they can be put back into a logical sequence of tasks and outcomes that will either convince you it is right to proceed, more research is needed or it is for another day.

Strategy creation

When asked about the role of their organization many people struggle to articulate its purpose.  What is it trying to achieve and what is their role in delivering this are questions that most people do not stop to consider.  Instead they focus on the immediacy of their tasks.

Yet these questions go to the very essence of who we are and what we come to work to do.  The lack of understanding leads to a divergence from purpose and a loss in productivity.  This could be the difference between being successful and not.

Using diagonal, linear and horizontal groups I can help gauge the effectiveness of any vision, values and strategy that are in place. These can then be transformed into more meaningful and understandable strategic objectives, building upon the skills and aspirations of the current people and identifying areas for improvement.

Organizational unblocking

Organizations can become disconnected from their purpose.  As they grow bigger divisions are created, silos are formed and empires are built.  Baggage is created that an organization cannot afford to carry.  It holds everyone back from their true potential.

This affects all areas of an organization, C-suite, managers, operational teams or individuals.  Everyone says that their most important asset is their people, so set them free.

Through a bespoke series of interventions I can identify and devise solutions to the issues that are preventing the organization from reaching its true potential. The interventions will include a variety of tools and techniques at either group or individual level including coaching, mentoring, self-assessment, diagonal-assessment, communications and engagement programmes.
