Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in studying the interoperability of power or how power operates in groups and organisations and the implications this might have for the design and delivery of high-impact learning and work systems. I specialize in action learning and action research approaches that redefine organisational processes and work systems, create opportunities for shared leadership, and drives self-managing teams. I have consulted for leading organisations and corporations around the world, including the Barclays plc, United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Asia Foundation, ActionAid, and the Commission on Science and Technology for the Sustainable Development in South amongst others. I have taught and made public appearances at prestigious business schools and conferences, including Liverpool, Lancaster, Bath and Sheffield as well as the British Academy of Management, RMLE unconference and the International Conference for Leadership Studies.

I received my MBA in HRM from Greenwich University, MA in HRD & Consulting and a Doctorate in Management Learning and Leadership from Lancaster University. I also completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Academy of Gender, Work and Leadership, Lancaster University Management School, UK. Currently, I am a Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, Fellow of the Royal Anthropological Institute (RAI) and an Academic Member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). I am also a member of the British Academy of Management and an active member of the Association for North American Higher Education International.

Willing to supervise PhD

I am interested in supervising doctoral students looking to undertake interdisciplinary research broadly in the areas of organisational learning, leadership development, knowledge management, management education and HRD. I particularly welcome research which challenges the limits of orthodoxy and concentrates on bringing to fore the complexities surrounding human social interaction within the context of learning and change.
