If you’ve spent any time in manufacture you’ll probably have come across lean and the various initiatives to eliminate waste the way we work.  The manufacturing industry is beginning to wake up to another waste – the waste of unused human talent.  

It was the realisation of this untapped potential in myself and those around me that started me out on a journey of coaching and personal development. Inner courage, belief and teamwork are just as essential as ever in today’s high-tech, fast moving and data rich way of operating.

With extensive experience in engineering, manufacturing and leadership I can provide you with a range of consultancy and coaching services to boost your productivity and give you the drive to astound yourself in what you and your teams can achieve.

Productivity and Lean

Helping people create more value on their own represents one of the highest forms of respect. 

John Shook

There are a host of tools applied to lean which are widely used but most practitioners recognise that most of lean is about culture and respect for the ingenuity of the workforce which is, right now at the disposal of the organization.

Engaging, empower and inspiring your workforce will create a movement of change which is relentless.

  • Training on lean thinking and culture
  • Coaching for first-line leaders
  • Personal Effectiveness Training

Continuous Improvement

Continuous Improvement is better than delayed perfection.

Mark Twain.

Equip yourself and your teams with the enormous power of continuous improvement.  It doesn’t need capital investment, restructuring or hefty consultancy fees – it can start immediately from the most junior to the most senior because every journey is made of many simple steps.

  • Motivational Talks
  • Interactive Training Workshops

Teamwork and Facilitation

Synergy is better than my way or your way – It’s our way

Dr Stephen R Covey

Setting up a workshop for maximum impact requires careful planning and willingness to allow the magic to happen.  Few people are truly independent enough to stand back and listen with an open mind to what their colleagues have to say.  Get an external facilitator to maximize the effectiveness of your workshops including:

  • Lesson Learnt Reviews
  • Problem solving
  • Project initiation
  • Goal setting and strategy

Coaching and Personal Development

Coaching and Personal Development

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself”

Leo Tolstoy.

It’s tough for the technically minded to appreciate how true influence and impact comes from deep within your own personal drivers.  You need to take time to save time and dig down to what is the most important thing for you to focus your precious time and resources on.  Having coaching time will help you work out what is most important and create clarity, direction and purpose for your whole life.  Take out time to be coached – it’s an investment which will pay off.

  • Understanding your true goals
  • Face-to-face or remote coaching
