Please share your favourite management development insight or quote.
When crises occur, too many managers believe the answer lies in fixing something - software, process, etc - rather than looking at the dynamics of the organisation which are usually the real cause of organisational problems. The greatest insight often comes from frontline staff who know what needs fixing but have no means of communicating with senior management.
What kind of person are you?
More about you (Short Bio or any other details you’d like people to know)
Career centred around identifying organisational problems, including both people and systems and getting organisations on track. In recent years have moved to consultancy/advisory roles.
What I’d like from the AMED network is…
Insight, ideas and ability to network with others doing similar work
What do you do for your own development?
Read widely, network locally with people in similar roles
Excellent. I appreciate you won't be nipping across to Scotland for an evening meeting but we are starting to learn how to make the most of the virtual world. Will you be hooking us up with others in your local network? I met some New Zealanders at an OD Institute conference in Dublin or Vienna a few years ago.
