I help organisations and individuals boost their workplace effectiveness and performance to achieve their business and career goals.

You’re in the right place if YOU need help and pragmatic solutions on leadership and organisational effectiveness; personal effectiveness; change management; career growth and success; or procurement & supply chain management.

I’ve been described as “a guru,” “an inspiration,” “a philosopher from the future,” “the Seth Godin of Procurement” (‘loved that one!), a “most influential thinker,” and other monikers.

Of course, I’m flattered by these descriptions. But I’m simply a human being like you, who wants to nurture my best self, and help others ignite the fire in their belly and fulfil their potential. I do that through my books & products, and through my work as a writer, speaker, business adviser and coach & mentor.

I arrived in the UK as a near-barefoot and penniless immigrant in the early nineties, paid my dues in several menial jobs, and fourteen years later got my first senior executive job as a global director in a FTSE 250 blue-chip multinational.

So what? Well, that 14-year journey took a lot of hard slog, a bit of luck and LOTS of learning. My work today is about sharing that learning to help others spread their wings and fly.

Interesting question, @JeffPally. And, certainly, many laudable competencies listed. Yet it’s also worth asking: “What competencies do leaders need to do the leadership job *effectively*?”

RT @SigiOsagie: "#Procurement people who really want to excel and be better than average must take responsibility for their own growth and development. But any effort by employers to help people grow their capabilities is an added bonus"
