Expert assistance for leaders who need to improve engagement.

Are you a leader who needs to get people engaged?

Today the need to engage people, whether it’s our customers, users, team members, communities, stakeholders, or any other group of people, is paramount for leaders.

Typically, a leader’s long list of engagement to-dos include things like:

  • Engaging customers in an ever competitive marketplace, which means you need to:
  • Get your team to highly engaged around what you’re doing, which means:
  • Engaging with yourself and getting clear about your message, which also means:
  • Getting the board’s or senior manager’s agreement on new projects, which will entail:
  • Creating key presentations that get crucial buy-in, which’ll mean you then need to:
  • Identifying obstacles and developing engagement strategies for your organisation or department, all the while you need to:
  • Strengthening inter-personal engagement skills,
  • and on the cycle goes!

When leaders need help with this, it isn’t that they aren’t already competent or engaging leaders – far from it! – but rather it’s a matter of needing to know what to do next when it comes to a particular engagement scenario. It is my privilege to be able to coach such leaders to a point of engagement success.

If you're that leader, I can help

I launched this coaching service in direct response to the work I’ve done with a range of leaders who wanted to improve engagement.

And I only do it for people in that situation. So if you’re one of these:

  • an executive or manager responsible for engagement,
  • a community leader,
  • a startup founder,
  • or a leader who has a critical engagement need,

…then I can likely help.

Leaders I've coached have come from organisations including:

How you'll benefit from working with me

Coaching is an investment of time, energy and money, so here’s four reasons why it’s worth making that investment:

  1. You’ll get engagement expertise that is grounded in organisational and scientific theory, and explained through models that I’ve gathered over many years, including my own specific engagement frameworks as per my book (I’m a model fiend!). This means you’ll learn things as mental models that you can easily remember and then put into practice.
  2. You’ll benefit from the years of experience I’ve accrued – and I think this is important – from actually doing this stuff. My sector experience includes aviation, broadcast media, co-working spaces, creative industries, education, energy and climate, entertainment, event production, local government, national government, non-profit and NGOs, publishing, religion, social justice, startups, sustainability, technology, telecommunications, tourism, town planning, and youth work.
  3. You’ll get my care, attention, and passion. I’ve been advising people on a one-to-one basis for around 20 years, at one point as a church pastor, and now as a consultant and specialist in engagement. I consider it a great privilege to be able to speak into leader’s lives and help them get more engagement around what they are doing.
  4. And can I be honest? You’ll get to talk with someone who has had a fair share of failure as well as success. In fact, everything I’ve learned is what I’ve had to learn the hard way, through blood, sweat and tears. I know what it’s like to feel like you don’t have these skills, to compare yourself to others, but also, what it’s like to finally overcome and win. And that’s what I’ll help you do.
