Everything I have ever done in my career comes together in my current role as transformation coach. At the heart of what I do is the desire to develop people, be that as individuals, as members of teams, or as leaders. Agile and Lean bring about major shifts in the way people view work. I love supporting individuals and organisations through that difficult change to watch them flourish on the other side. My background is technical - I came to Agile through Martin Fowler and XP way back in 1996, so for many years I worked as a team member in Agile vendor teams internationally. In my early days as Agile coach a lot of the work I did was with software teams, breaking down barriers between traditional roles and finding better ways for teams to grow together and develop quality software. My own development over the last few years focused on professional coaching, change management and facilitation. I chose to specialise in Organisational and Relationship Systems Coaching (ORSC). All of this has widened the scope of my work to include enterprise transformation in general and leadership development in particular. My focus at the moment is developing Agile leaders at every level. My approach is holistic - developing oneself as a leader is nothing more and nothing less than developing oneself.
