What is the hardest thing to lead?

How about your own family?

What’s the greatest source of satisfaction and the hardest challenge? Doing family life tops it for me.

The people we value the most and who know us best, test our leadership ability. A lot!

It is hard to see how credible we can be in leadership, if we can’t lead our own families. What would they say about us?

Does leadership start with engagement?

How about “quantity” time, as well as “quality”?

Good leadership is essential for any project to succeed. I specialise in the most difficult leadership challenges; those involving the way we relate to other people or the way they relate to us. With a background of many years in business and an earlier training in medicine I combine the two in a unique consultancy.
