Attachment-informed Management Consultant and Leadership Coach

Over the last 27 years, I have been in management, coaching, and leadership roles in the industry of dental health, and within my own business management consulting company.   

Throughout my career, I have always been interested in the “people” part of an organization and the psychological aspects of leadership and management in business. 

For the past number of years, I have studied a distinctive approach to leadership informed by modern Attachment Theory (the development and quality of human relationships over the lifecourse), and the emerging field of interpersonal neurobiology (the neuroscience of attachment).

My current interests lie in bringing an understanding to senior leaders of the power of Attachment-informed Leadership, and how it can enhance their leadership effectiveness (self-leadership and leading others).
Attachment is the science of relationships.  In an attachment-informed approach to developing effective leaders, the work starts on ensuring that the leader (e.g., the owners/partners of businesses) is as ‘attachment secure’ as possible (‘self-leadership’).  Work can then move on to developing their capacity for ‘leading others’.
I also have a particular interest in working with mid-career women leaders (including those expressing an interest in enhancing their ability to navigate the distinctive emotional and cognitive aspects of the Menopause).
