Philip James

Associate Consultant - Europe & Middle East

Most of my work is centred on helping clients with Leadership. In my experience, leadership is easy to talk about, hard to sustain but underlies many client issues with capability. My expertise lies in diagnosing what is, and is not, happening and helping clients find a new path for sustainable success, including their bottom line results. I help develop new leadership capability at every level, either through facilitated workshops, structured training or 1:1 coaching, whichever is going to get the client the best result.

As a former HR Director in Aviation, I can rapidly assess and bring new insights to help integrate your people strategy to maximise capability. As a psychologist by training I have access to a range of frameworks and tools which can be applied as required.

What others say about me:

Philip and I worked closely together on the complex transformation of NATS for 6 years and in that time I was impressed by Philip's focus and commitment to see through difficult issues. Philip is a great coach and facilitator and helped me maintain a strong and motivated team by working with my direct reports to ensure any issues were dealt with quietly and effectively, all the time focusing on the results.

In my five years on the Nats Board I have worked with Philip James and appreciated his ability to see the overall picture and implications of what might appear to be simple single decisions, especially as they affected the workforce. That along with his calm and discretion in all situations brought real value to Nats. Baroness Dean of Thornton-le-Fylde, Non-Executive Director, NATS
