I enjoy working at a senior level when clarity is needed around the direction and priorities of an organisation.
This has included facilitating several sessions with the Trustees of Surrey Docks Farm during a time of funding uncertainty. Having decided on their priorities and gained a sense of clarity and purpose, they have managed to become much more focused on their core work and are now fully self-sustaining. I just gave a helpful nudge in the right direction.
I continue to support the Trustees of the Peckham Settlement during a time of massive change for the organisation. Now as a Trustee myself, I am helping to establish a new Executive Committee and define the objectives of the organisation as a grant giver, in line with the objectives of the Settlement that were established almost 120 years ago.
I have also provided 1:1 consultancy support to a number of Senior Managers to provide advice around staff restructures, performance management and redundancies. I act as an independent, external sounding board who helps overcome thorny issues that can be time consuming and difficult. These can be the real struggles of management, but they don't last forever!
