Originally a photojournalist and advertising photographer working in London’s media industry, Steve switched careers to join the RAF as a fast-jet fighter pilot where he spent several years in operational, training and leadership roles. He went on to accept international diplomatic, strategic and internal consulting positions within the MoD before leaving to develop his own consulting practice. Following his completion of the Ashridge Doctorate in Organisational Consulting (ADOC), he joined Ashridge as an associate and faculty member.
Steve translates his ability to work with conflict and stress into creative interventions in the workplace through the use of imagery, conversation and reflective space. He has a particular interest in the intersection of vision, leadership and strategy and believes that rapid, improvisational action requires a clear and shared ‘picture’ of organisational and environmental events. His interventions catalyse the qualitative shift in relationships needed for teams and boards to develop and prepare their capability to constructively face circumstances of uncertain change and high anxiety.
His recent work includes:
Steve continues to develop his ADOC research in creative identity using a variety of visual and digital methods to helps clients to envision their personal view of leadership, innovation and change. He is also designing a series of ‘practitioner workshops’ to help fellow OD professionals add contemporary visual techniques to their repertoire of organisational interventions.
