I believe that trust is a consultant’s most important currency and needs to be earned. Trust is underpinned by credibility, reliability, transparency, and low self-orientation. I endeavour to be trustworthy by:
PhD in Organisational Psychology and maintaining my Psychologists accreditation by fulfilling my CPD requirements over the last 20 years. I am on the Faculty of Henley Business School (rated in the top 20 worldwide by Financial Times). I have worked inside blue-chip organisations: Allan Gray, Unilever, and Harrods. My current client base as an external consultant is also testament to this aspect.
This is best gauged by people who have worked with me over an extended period, and what they have to say.
My Purpose in life is: “Be Lite” I want to elevate people’s capabilities by focussing the light of science-based psychology on their challenges. The principles by which I live my life are: to lead by example; pain of discipline is preferable to the pain of regret; always stay curious.
The lasting value contribution I would like to make to:
FAMILY: Light the fire . . . love of health, knowledge, and proactive attitude.
FRIENDS: De-light . . . sow memories by having fun.
WORK/CLIENTS: Shine light . . . on people’s unique strengths.
SOCIETY: Create light . . . through research insights.
I believe in business both the client and the consultant must benefit from the relationship. In 2 consulting situations I have not charged consulting fees, because I felt I had not met the standards I expect of myself. A standing rule I have is that if I do not deliver a minimum 90% satisfaction rating, I reimburse my clients. In these two instances I scored in the 80s. I am happy to supply these clients contact details for verification.
