John Higgins

John is a researcher, author and coach who tries to get the off-the-record of organisational experience onto-the-record. He works intimately with established and aspiring leaders from all walks of life – encouraging them to find ways of marrying their personal and professional contexts. He believes that people have two choices when it comes to understanding why they lead (or follow) the way they do – either they embrace their past and shadow, or they are consumed by them.

He has been a Research Associate of Ashridge since 2004, combining his authorial role with being the prime carer for his two daughters. Prior to then he was a Business Director working with clients such as The Body Shop, Beiersdorf, Watson Wyatt and the NHS, exploring new ways of making a difference to people and organisations. He also created two open programmes, one focused on power and communication in organisations and the other on leading strategy and change.
