Peter believes that the control over achieving one’s full potential and personal fulfilment is in the hands of the individual. His prime focus is to:
- Assist individuals to tap into their core motivational drivers, defining their sense of purpose and motivational choices and to align these with the needs of their organisation
- Provide information on the individual’s own set of rules or expectations and how these can be managed effectively as motivational strengths and to meet leadership development needs
- Put the control with the individual over working with greater emotional intelligence through understanding and managing their perceptions, expectations and potential reactive behaviour
- Assist individuals to increase collaboration and work with effective and conscious communication in the work environment through understanding their own rules and working effectively with the different rules or expectations of others
Peter works with a strong business focus with a logical and solution-based approach within the context of what is important to the individual and the organisation.
