Phil’s early career involved working in business development, sales and marketing before moving into operations management where he developed and implemented major change programmes achieving Investors in People and membership of the British Quality Foundation.
This led to consultancy work with KPMG on major strategic change programmes working closely with Boards and senior managers. He worked in the Eastern Bloc as a change consultant working with Ministers and senior managers and then moved into training and consultancy and was responsible for implementing a £1.25 million management development programme.
As a manager his first experience of 360 feedback was over 10 years ago when he was reported on by his team. Phil says of the experience;
“the organisation already had a very well developed appraisal systyem and a competency framework. We were also an Investor in People. Appraisal was traditionally undertaken by your line manager. 360 appraisal provided an additional dimension to the appraisal process by adding feedback from my line manager to that from my peers and those in my team. I also had the opportunity to rate myself and compare how I saw myself against the views of a wide variety of others”.
Moving into a Management Development role Phil was trained as a 360 degree facilitator to administer the process and provide feedback and coaching to middle and senior managers.
For over 12 years Phil has worked as an independent consultant and has gained considerable experience as an academic as a Visiting Executive Fellow at the world-class Henley Business School teaching on the Business School’s prestigious MBA programmes and supporting and coaching managers from a wide variety of organisations.
