Leading teams to feel it’s THEIRS.
I didn’t learn what I know just from a book, and learned what I know about leadership to solve a real problem – my own.
Flashback to the mid 1980’s, when I started my international career leading teams delivering enterprise level change in companies across Asia-Pacific and Europe. We were challenged to transform these companies’ operations in months/not years, so I had to rely on people to deliver more on their OWN. The solution was getting everyone to both feel and take OWNERSHIP!
When your people take the OWNERSHIP, they often deliver beyond what they thought was possible…they deliver to their potential.
Today I use the same approach to mentor executives and businesses across the world to help them lead their people to OWN their results.
I’ve mentored leaders and delivered masterclasses in over 50 countries, and have delivered leadership development programs for companies like YouLend, Docomo Digital, and WiZink Bank. I also teach courses on ownership, leadership and influence at business schools across Europe including such prestigious institutions as IE Business School, and Headspring Executive Development.
I’m originally from the USA, but I’ve lived in Singapore, Egypt, Netherlands, Italy, Japan, and the UK. After all that, I’ve settled in London with my wife Atsuko who is from Japan. We explore the world, but enjoy lots of dinners at home together too!
