Hello, I’m Obi James.
I specialise in shaping organisational culture through coaching workplace relationships, group facilitation and team development. I have a track record of successfully helping clients to navigate various issues that emerge in relationships, mergers, acquisitions and during change.
Particularly skilled at creating safe environments for courageous ‘deep democracy’ conversations that allow participants to expand their views on complex issues, explore other perspectives and understand others’ views so they can build better collaboration, and achieve greater results.
When I am not coaching teams on Quality Improvement Projects within Primary Care (NHS), I am coaching leadership teams, delivering leadership development programmes, or facilitating off-sites and strategy days, working with clients across the US, Canada, Nigeria, South Africa and UK.
With extensive experience in a variety of senior leadership and organisational development roles within large multinational Financial Services organisations, I have successfully consulted and coached executives and teams across a wide range of public and private sector industries including Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, TSB, Deloitte, Northern Trust, NHS, Network Rail and UK Local Authorities.
