School report 1974 (aged 10):
He is very much an individual and in many respects this is a precious quality in a world which is more and more conforming.
I’m a Reader in management and organisational learning at the University of Chichester in the UK. My experience lies in the various aspects of management and organisational change, particularly working with groups and individuals to understand the impact of change and the opportunities it offers.
My blogging is a bit sporadic – time, curiosity, getting cross, interesting people spur me on or hold me back. More often than not my posts are sparked by a conversation or an experience that just makes me see things differently.
I have an eclectic range of interests and these are reflected in the posts. That said, there are themes that I keep coming back to, these include how people act and behave in organisations and how we can be more caring and conscious of others. I’m intrigued in what actually happens behind the rational veil of policy and corporate strategy.
By the way, these are my thoughts (inspired, jolted and fashioned by the work of others) and should not be ascribed to organisations and universities that I have been associated with.
