LEADERSHIP CONSULTING                                                   

Leadership, at its core, is character and clarity of values. There are techniques, but they are peripheral to leadership’s central definition. After all, it isn’t technique that comes to mind when we think of Mandela, Martin Luther King or Gandhi. It is their character and ethics. My mission is to help successful executives become ever better persons for themselves and for the people with whom they live and work. And in becoming so, they will be better leaders.

Marshaling Our Leadership Powers​

My approach to leadership training is different. It is the result of 30 years of lifelong experience, including university lecturer, entrepreneur, business consultant, professional interviewer and public speaker. My concept is based on the time-tested idea of self-reflection and personal investigation combined with the benefits of contemporary technology. 

We are the authors of our own change. The problem is we are not always aware of what needs to be changed. What is obvious to others is not necessarily obvious to ourselves. We steel ourselves against criticism because we don’t feel the truth of what others are telling us. The reason, in part, is that it is impossible to see ourselves as others see us. But if we could get a better sense on how we come across and what motivates our decisions, we are likely to make immediate modifications. 

Observing ourselves from the outside is at the core of my methodology. I call it PI Leadership Review, or PLR. It begins with private, in-depth filmed conversations about your work and life. The interview is then edited to focus on core leadership attributes and principles. We then review the edited interview together, which becomes the basis for a number of further, broader discussions. Change happens gently but inexorably.

PLR is an opportunity to understand yourself and your work in the context of your whole life. It is an enriching and creative way to reflect on your values and assumptions, and how they might be refined and adjusted to move you to another level of leadership.
