Megan is on the Thinkers50 radar of global business thinkers and ranked in the HR Most Influential Thinkers Listing. She is the author of Dialogue in Organizations; Developing Relational Leadership and Mind Time: How ten mindful minutes can enhance your work, health and happiness. Her next book called Speak Up will be published in 2019 by Financial Times. She regularly speaks to audiences throughout the world and her research has been published a number of times by Harvard Business Review.
Her passion and curiosity centres around the quality of how we speak, hear, learn innovate, challenge and collaborate with one another in organisational systems. Her research and publications explore the neuroscience of leadership, the links between mindfulness and leadership capacities for the 21st century – in particular resilience, collaboration and focus and decision making in complexity – and the capacity to speak up and listen up and enable others to do the same.
Her research responds to key business challenges such as:
• How can we encourage our people to speak up with their ideas more?
• How can we create a safe and transparent workplace that celebrates diversity?
• How can we change habits of conversation so that we listen to one another better and challenge productively?
• How can we train our minds to enable us to be more resilient in this fast-paced and always-on world?
• How does our mind affect how we relate to one another and how might we train our minds to relate better?
• If leaders need to thrive in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world, how can we train them to do this well?
She is Professor of Leadership and Dialogue at Ashridge and previously was a consultant with Deloitte; surfed the dot-com boom with boo.com; and worked in strategy consulting for The Kalchas Group, now the strategic arm of Computer Science Corporation. She was educated at Cambridge University and has a PhD from Cranfield School of Management. She is an accredited executive coach with Ashridge and The School of Coaching.
She is a mother to two wonderful daughters who test her regularly on her powers of mindfulness and dialogue.
