Residential Facilitator: Graham Johnson, Leadership Consultant

Graham has been an organisational and leadership consultant for 20 years and in the last decade has been the architect, facilitator and project lead for a series of Higher Education leadership development interventions for UK and international Universities. He also has a wealth of experience from consulting to private and public sector organisations including the NHS, Police & Local Authorities, E.On, AstraZeneca, Royal Bank of Scotland and PricewaterhouseCoopers. 

With a Masters in Leadership Studies, Graham is committed to enabling leadership that lasts.  He has a deep understanding of the leadership terrain and, prior to his role as a facilitator and consultant, for many years he was a leadership practitioner within commercial roles.  

Graham has a passion for developing Leaderful Organisations whereby leaders at all levels work together to address the complex challenges they face.  His whole-systems approach and progressive appreciation of leadership underpins a collective philosophy, which has been at the heart of three award winning and nationally recognised HE development initiatives.
