Jason works at three levels: coaching individuals, supporting teams, and on systemic issues organizational issues including culture and leadership.
As an executive coach, Jason has worked with senior leaders internationally across a wide range of challenges. His approach is always to consider the ‘whole person’, including mental, physical and emotional needs, and their underlying purpose and meaning – but always pragmatically focusing on what is needed in the present moment. Having worked in the world’s leading management consultancy and investment banking firms, he has first-hand experience of the unique characteristics of these organisations, and can relate to the challenges its leaders face, the exacting standards expected, and the intricacies of power and politics.
Jason supports leadership teams on their most pressing challenges, ensuring that they are aligned on purpose and direction, and that the team dynamics and processes support their mission. He enjoys helping teams step up into being true role models for their people, and always balances individual needs with those of the team, the organization and their broader stakeholders.
At a systemic level, Jason helps organizations understand how their current culture and leadership capability enable their strategy, what they truly stand for (purpose) and how to manage the complex human processes of change and transformation. This always requires a careful blend of soft and hard, IQ and EQ, planning and emergence, skills and personal courage.
