Dave concluded 30 years police service in April 2019 having served for as a police officer in the Metropolitan Police, Northamptonshire Police and with national police bodies. Dave has considerable experience at a national strategic level at the Association of Chief Police Officers he represented policing with Chief Officers, Government Departments, international businesses, charities and academics. He is comfortable and able to work productively with people at all levels of an organisation. From 2016 – 2019 he developed and led peer reviews of police forces for the College of Policing providing coaching and organisational development support. Working to the Chief Constable, this drew together his passions for coaching and organisational culture in helping individuals and police forces better understand themselves and improve their performance.
Dave has 290 hours (May 19) coaching practice. He is experienced in working with individuals and teams as well as wider organisational change. His keen interest in systems thinking and organisational culture (how the influences on behaviour within an organisation are broader than the written strategies and policies) enable him to take clients to deeper levels of personal self-awareness, understanding of their organisation and of themselves within their organisation.
Dave passionately believes in the potential within everyone to succeed and his style reflects this. His practice is a warm, empathic style that is centred to meet each individual’s specific needs. A strength of Dave’s coaching is his ability to listen to what the client says (and doesn’t say) that allows him to effectively challenge so that they gain a deep self-awareness and the confidence to improve.
