Helping you make better decisions with wisdom, mindset shifts and strategic thinking.
A London-based versatile, experienced coach, with excellent supporting skills in strategic thinking, accessing inner wisdom, mindfulness, organisational development, project and programme management. These skills are available for supporting leaders and aspiring leaders to achieve success in a range of public and private sector organisations. He has a special interest in working with people of Black heritage, who he believes have much more to offer to employers and to society by trusting their inner wisdom..
Working through Ruuvand Ltd, he receives clients from a belief in infinite possibility, the client’s and his. This belief has come from experimentation in his career, studies, sport and life. He employs curiosity and listening as his core tools to trigger mindset shifts, unlock insights, solutions and challenges. This is because he has discovered that “Who you are being” is often the key to success in any situation. Joseph’s presence is experienced as calming. He forms a true partnership with the clarity that here, the client has the larger stake and is encouraged to embrace this fact, however daunting. His full commitment is devoted to the client’s success and beyond. He builds rapport quickly and remains light but challenging in conversations to help keep clients on track and to stretch.
Strategic thinking with clear purpose, comes naturally to Joseph and has been especially useful in being a sounding-board for clients, in his management and non-executive Board roles during the past 18 years. He is currently a Non-Executive Director of the British Acupuncture Council where he leads on Supervision and Mentoring. With a Bachelors degree in Psychology and a Masters degree in Business Administration, he led organisational development projects and taught Strategy at Masters level in Middlesex Business School. Seeing a meeting point between strategy and coaching, he developed a set of “Strategic leadership cards” as a tool for leadership teams to enhance individual and collective strategic thinking and wisdom.
Joseph enjoys running, a Japanese martial arts, a Stoic lifestyle, thinking and playing, whenever possible.
