Coaching the leaders of tomorrow
I spent 25 years in management, most of it in senior teams running multiple service operations. I decided to take the plunge a few years ago and set up my own business specialising in cultural change solutions for organisations. My journey thus far has been incredibly satisfying and most importantly I have discovered the thing that I most want to bring into the world.
I want to awaken in managers and students of management the belief that they can craft the culture at work that they really want to belong to. I want to teach them the knowledge and transfer the practical skills that they require to do this. So I have invested time building up our unique product range at www.culturalchange.co.uk to do this.
And every day I get the chance to explore my passion. Sometimes delivering Soft Skills trainings; sometimes coaching clients; sometimes developing products in collaboration with partners; and sometimes designing and delivering change skill programmes for high end business schools Client Case Studies | The Cultural Change Company.
The most rewarding aspect of these roles is coaching emerging management talent who will be leading organisations throughout the world through their final master’s in management science (MSC) dissertations.
To date, since leaving my management career I have successfully coached and guided over 130 international students through their MSc dissertation.
I have been incredibly blessed to get this opportunity from Adam Smith Business School.
Each summer I am allocated students from all over the world who have invested a year of their lives to achieve their master’s Degree in subjects such as International Strategic HRM.
These students are incredibly bright, open to new ideas and they are like sponges soaking up everything Adam Smith Business School can give them so that they may go forth and bet the best version of themselves and make a real difference as leaders post MSc.
I think I am incredibly privileged to get to do this kind of role. To play a small part in supporting these emerging leadership talent through their learning journey and to see them full of commitment, steel and drive and intellectual curiosity makes me know that I am doing something worthwhile.
Whomever employs these young leaders will get quality people to help run their organisations and develop them. And I am sure some will go on and create new business and bring wealth and creativity into the world which is yet to exist.
