Jeremy is a systems thinker, consultant, lecturer, dad, husband, slow runner, average squash player and lifelong Norwich City fan.
He is dedicated to helping people with better ways of organising; seeking clarity in the complex, making daunting problems manageable and thinking outside the (top-down) pyramid.
Jeremy's approach helps people, teams and organisations to reduce friction and humanise their work, resulting in better services for customers and citizens, better business performance and better places to work.
His practice is anchored in empathetic process consulting:
Jeremy joined Easier Inc. in 2019 with more than two decades of consulting experience and a strong track record in senior leadership roles, most recently as Director of Quality Improvement at CQC (the health & social care regulator for England).
It may appear that reintroducing chimpanzees to the wild, leading communications for wetland conservation and creating skills programmes for those furthest from the labour market have nothing to do with each other. Take another look though and you'll see the golden thread of ‘meaning’ that runs through Jackie's work.
All people are sense-making, meaning-seeking beings. Through Magma Effect and in her work with Easier Inc. clients, Jackie supports people and teams with this; creating insight for meaning and motivation.
The way she does it is through values. Expert in a range of models, Jackie is the UK's lead practitioner with the Minessence Values Framework. She is adept at helping people to put into words the abstract, implicit and energy-rich ideas that drive their decisions and outcomes so they can approach their work with a fuller understanding of themselves and others.
And she has a ‘thing’ about storytelling too...
Phil Badley (DiamondNine) coaches and supports business leaders and their teams to develop better habits; connecting them with their values and helping them to perform at their best more of the time.
Phil's work has taken him across sectors, where he has supported leaders to visualise and implement change with a particular focus on the hidden blockers to realising their potential.
This means his approach is holistic; supporting improvements in both personal and business performance, developing individual and collective agency for change and helping people to attend to the systemic issues (structures, processes, policies, etc.) that can get in the way.
Phil’s purpose in life is to bring out the best in everyone he meets through an open and honest relationship that provides challenge, support and encouragement in equal measure.
