Through the Creativity Partnership I provide consultancy services to help a variety of organisations develop a more innovative, confident culture, often in challenging circumstances.
Clients have included
- a leading NHS Hospital Trust,
- a county council,
- a major food manufacturing PLC,
- a high-tech PLC,
- a major retailer.
My philosophy is to recognise that change is always hard, so I focus on stimulating productive change only in those small elements that have become dysfunctional.
I believe that people, their perceptions and misperceptions are usually more important than processes, so my approach is based on the Appreciative System thinking approaches of Sir Geoffrey Vickers (my Grandfather) and the unfreezing techniques developed by the organisational psychologist Edgar Schein
This approach is highly successful, so clients have told me
“Most impressive… There’s absolutely a positive change”
“Your report was like dynamite, but it’s been very good for me and my team”
