Who are you without your title?

Command-and-control leadership is losing its grip. A new way of thinking is emerging: leadership that embraces change as constant, encourages individual thought, relies on intuition more than data, fluidity more than hierarchy, trust more than fear, and the common good more than profit.

I act as sounding board, coach and strategic advisor to a select number of executives, founders, and companies around the world. Together we are pioneering new territory: not just in business leadership, but in leadership itself.

How can we lead societies with differing politics, languages, and customs? Together we can lead the world in a unified way with dignity and freedom for all.

Can you see your way through to your full potential? What’s beyond the horizon of your business, your career, your identity?

I want to help the leaders of today fulfill that promise tomorrow. Seriously, starting next Monday.

Are you ready? Learn more about me and my work with clients. Then let’s talk.

“Tom is at his best one-on-one, in conversation, where he is an excellent listener, keen to understand what I am saying behind the words. He is sensitive to emotions and motivations, connecting personal journeys with the aspiration of the overall business. I always have the sense that Tom has time to care and that my opinion matters, which is a rare talent in such a busy world!”

-Mark Beaumont, Athlete, Broadcaster, Author

“Tom has been a mentor and a great source of support and inspiration to me for over a decade. Always willing to share his insight, perspective and wealth of experience, he has always challenged me to do better. Work with him if you get the chance!”

-Steve McIntosh, GPHR, FCA, Founder & CEO

I get my best ideas from listening to people. Fortunately, that’s my job.

I like to say that people are my library, and my daily writing practice is a way to discover what’s in it: new ideas, inspiration, wisdom, and a little fun for good measure. As your humble librarian, I invite you to check out a new idea every day. No late fees ever. Enjoy.
