Leadership through the Lens.

Images & Insights.

Welcome. Prior to becoming a Leadership Specialist over a decade ago, I was a photographer. I travelled with my camera and met people living in very different worlds to our own. It taught me that there are many different faces of leadership, and it taught me to keep-it-real in the training room and place people’s own life experience at the centre of their learning. And so in this blog I’m combining images and insights to explore themes on leadership, give it a real context and illustrate how it’s expressed in many different ways in everyday life.

Passion and Identity

It’s a typical hot and humid day in the city, and inside the gym the smell of sweat and the thud of kicks in darkened spaces plays out.

Crayfish & Conflict

How a scuba diving emergency illustrates key principles of conflict resolution “Twenty-metres down I feel a tug on my fin… my buddy signals he’s out of air, his face full of fear… “

Riots and Rapport

Three thousand people walled in by four-deep lines of riot police for eight-hours. What did I see? A whole lot of rapport and a couple of molotov cocktails.

Where to from here?

At several thousand feet high, a different sense of scale is offered. Within minutes we’ve flown over the lives of hundreds of thousands of people, each with a story both told and unfolding.

Misdiagnosis

“From your case history and the tests we’ve done… it looks as if you have ALS, a Motor Neurone Disease.”

Water, Rivalry & Real Ale

What brings people together to build community? Is it just a common purpose, or is there something else more binding?

Diagnosis

These strategies are for people who’ve been diagnosed with a terminal or life threatening illness. If that’s you, I’m sharing these strategies because I know something about what you’re going through…

Intro: Images & Insights

A nicely timed kick-up-the-arse can bring a wealth of insight and benefit, and just over a year ago I had one that by all means should have been bruising.

Welcome. I’m combining images and insight to explore themes on leadership, give it a real context and illustrate how it’s expressed in many different ways in everyday life. Some posts are simply thought provokers, whilst others deep-dive with a big question and a touch of brain-science.
