What gets in the way of leaders being effective?

Many leaders are ineffective in organisations because they are not really leading – they are just managing day to day with back-to- back meetings, whilst trying to stay on top of the never-ending demands made on them.

Yet when leaders get inspired, and have time to think, they develop new ideas and possibilities.

They feel energised to take action. And their people get engaged and motivated.

I help leaders to be more effective so they can be more strategic, inspire their teams, and deliver sustainable business results.  

The secret is to transform: to go through a process of reinvention by transforming how you think, not what you know – and then having the courage to get out of your own way and discover what you are capable of.

EXPLORE: A Life of Adventure is a compelling memoir that explains why stepping out your comfort zone is key to living a fulfilling life.

I recount the story of my adventures from challenging beginnings to exploring some of the world’s most extreme environments including the North Pole, Antarctica and Greenland.
