    My joy comes in supporting people in companies to cross the bridge from internal conflict to insight and realise their deepest wish. Handled effectively any process of growth cradles the possibility for the creation of something akin to a spiritual experience. I treat my work with respect, delivering rich and engaging, multi-layered learning opportunities, making every moment a rite of passage. I love leading people in the task of embracing their full potential. My leadership, coaching and facilitation style has grown from roots in Jungian Emotional Intelligence, The Thinking Environment and Process Work. As a leader my aim is to nurture an environment of e.a.s.e (enabling accurate self estimation) and personal accountability. I seek to empower and uplift individuals and teams in getting beyond the superficial games. Thus creating a culture of courageous communication where all divergent views are welcome and cutting edge thinking is free to unfold. My first novel Rude Awakening came out in the UK on 1.11.12. My working practices include: Skype/telephonic coaching (individuals and groups), one-on-one coaching, leadership development, meeting and workshop facilitation. Specialties: Thinking Partnerships, Thinking Environment, Life & Executive Coaching, Team and Group coaching and Facilitation, Leadership Development and Conflict resolution. “Working with Michael has allowed me to open up new channels of thinking that have had an immediate and very positive impact on both myself and my company. The simplistic and unobtrusive nature of thinking sessions with Michael has allowed me to slow down, and actually think about problems in a completely new way. Very exciting stuff. If I had to sum up in one word, how I feel after a thinking session with Michael, I would say; empowered.” Stephen Downey, Global Director of Business Development at Market Key.  less
