In this episode I have an incredibly interesting conversation with Mick Williams who is passionate about helping people and organisations to manage change. He brings a wealth of experience from a varied career including many years in the Royal Air Force and then in management consulting, but what really stood out for me are the personal qualities he brings to leadership, especially in his ability to seek out and understand the unique perspectives of people impacted by change within an organisation.
We explored many aspects of leadership from forming new teams to managing change in "difficult times" and thinking about personal change in leadership.
With Mick's positive and yet very pragmatic approach, it's easy to see why he is regarded as an inspiring and highly effective leader, bringing out the best in others around him, with a dose of good humour too!
I left the conversation feeling inspired, with a changed perspective around talking about "difficult times" and hugely grateful to him for the opportunity to explore this topic together.
Mick Williams is a People and Change generalist who has achieved professional impact in several fields: the armed forces; the senior civil service; and management consulting (both self-employed and ‘big four’). He is served by a set of strong values and invaluable life experiences and, typically, gets things done by creating the conditions to allow others to succeed. He thrives when driving the four ‘engines’ of purpose, change, governance and delivery, all with a constant focus on the people context.
It is important to Mick to be able to influence society positively and he seeks out people, organisations and projects that share his values, Mick has just returned to freelancing in order to build more choice and variety into his professional life, with a new mantra of ‘work less, work better’.
He is rarely happier professionally when the people around him grow, develop, and succeed, and he hopes that a little of that will rub off on his own professional experience.
