Research & Education

My resarch approaches include

  • Using storytelling as a way to co-inquire together, determine vision and purpose, engage together into our living histories, and to develop how we deliver change together. This has been used with clients to improve organisational change approaches and set up change programmes for success.
  • Ways of self-inquiring and self-developing as a practitioner using a combination of action research approaches that are embodied, creative and relational. This is the focus of my doctorate and plays into how I practice myself and how I coach people.

In my education work with the Open University I’ve delivered on the following;

  • Associate lecturer with research supervision responsibilities on M875 MBA project: leaders of change.
  • Associate lecturer on MBA module BB842 Sustainable creative management and STEM masters module M815 Project management.

  • Delivery of synchronous and asynchronous teaching and feedback provision in face to face, via online tutorials, forums, emails as well as one to one support to students.
