Her passion and curiosity centers around the quality of how we meet, see, hear, speak, learn with, and encounter one another in organizational systems. She believes how we might encourage dialogue is not only more humane, but it also enables us, our colleagues, and our society to flourish. Working at the intersection of leadership, change, dialogue, and mindfulness, she has presented her research to audiences throughout the world and is recognized by the Thinkers50 Radar of global management thinkers.
Her recent research with John Higgins on ‘Speaking Truth to Power’ – examining how perceptions of power enable and silence others, is the subject of her new book, Speak Up: Say what needs to be said and hear what needs to be heard.
As well as running her own business, she is a Professor of Leadership and Dialogue at Ashridge Executive Education – part of Hult International Business School. Previously she was a consultant with Deloitte, an executive at Boo.com, and worked in strategy consulting in what is now the strategy arm of Computer Science Corporation. Educated at Cambridge University she gained an MA in Land Economy, a Masters in Change Agent Skills and Strategies at Surrey University, and a Masters in Research at Cranfield School of Management where she also earned her Ph.D.
Most valiantly, she’s the mother to two wonderful daughters who test her regularly on her powers of mindfulness and dialogue. Join me on this episode of the Curve Benders podcast with Megan Reitz.
