In this frank interview, Professor Peter Hawkins tells us of his early days as a psychotherapist, and how he began noticing the impact of interconnected systems on the people he worked with.
Peter relates how he built on this theme through his long career in the business world and academia, the growth of his Systemic Team Coaching approach that turned conventional leadership team development on its head, and led to Peter becoming recognised around the world as a leading authority on future-fit, value-creating teams and sustainable organizations.
He tells us what he’s discovered about leadership development and how this needs to change to be relevant to meet the challenges of a continuously rapidly changing world. And he provides us with insights and wisdom for managing the overwhelm that so many coaches, consultants and leaders feel when considering the enormity of multiple interdependent challenges that they face today.
