Create Space to Thrive
So that you can craft change that everyone can be proud of
the time and freedom to live, think, and develop in a way that suits those who are present
Change happens when the right conditions, awareness and direction come together. Bringing these components together involves creating space to take stock of the current reality for the people who are about to be part of the change.
The ability to create, hold and maintain space, so as to consider options, listen carefully and understand how each move impacts the overall direction of travel throughout the change process is vital in retaining momentum and engagement. The trust others are willing to offer to a leader or cause, and therefore their collective energy and enthusiasm are often based on how well a leader is able to demonstrate these 'space creation' skills.
Leaders only require one follower to be a leader. So creating space is something that can have a huge positive impact across organisations as well as in personal lives when everyone from home and the front line to strategy and analysis is enabled to lead in this way.
Thriving is a particular form of growth that is often expansive beyond what you can simply see. Thriving is all around us in plants, animals, people, and occurs when the right conditions are met. Thriving recognises the strength that comes from trust and interdependence, transformation and the service of others in order to create an ecosystem where everything in it is better of because of it's existence.
When we bring this mindset into organisations we see open communication, continuous learning from each other, coaching and behaviours that create the stability to innovate and be creative and partnerships that make a difference through the confidence in the strengths each partner brings to the collective goal.
A thriving, healthy organisational ecosystem that meets the needs of those within it is able to effectively make a difference societally and environmentally.
to grow or develop well
I am passionate about creating spaces for people to thrive,
I have been working with people and their organisations to transform how they make change happen since 2007 in communities, across sectors and industries; in the UK and Internationally.
Having worked freelance since 2016, I started the Space to Thrive in 2019 to build a community of professionals who believe that change is an opportunity to learn, innovate and become closer to others so that we can craft changes that everyone can be proud of. Change that everyone can be proud of delivers higher levels of commitment to the cause, aligned productivity, improved well-being and creativity, with lower levels of stress, apathy, heartache and headache usually associated with change management
I am sharing this practice while learning from others, as well as working directly with clients through cultural transformation assessment and facilitation, learning and development consultancy, coaching and mentoring along with keynotes and workshops

Sometimes what you really need is someone who is an outsider, neutral and able to bring a new perspective of change the dynamic.
Embrace uncertainty and change
Using tools and creative techniques we establish you and your organisation work out where you are at the moment before helping you connect meaningfully to a direction to head in.
