Skilled in working with teams and small groups to promote individual and collective insight that supports deeper and richer conversations about objectives that matter.
He loves facilitating rich conversations that dig into and gain energy from the paradoxes of team and organisation life. “I believe that people who disagree vehemently about things that matter have a duty to listen and engage – and work against our natural instinct to polarize. I work with clients to craft approaches grounded in values”.

He is co-editor of The Routledge Companion to International Business Coaching (Moral and Abbott, 2011). He has authored articles in the field of cross cultural coaching – and coach in that field.
