Steve Hearsum

BA (Hons), MSc

Associate Consultant

Steve supports and challenges clients to find their edge and stretch when what they need is more than simply 'better sameness’. His primary focus is on:

Digital Age Leadership: development that ‘gets’ that digital and emerging technology are not just a backdrop but intertwined with what leaders and managers need to know, how they need to be, how they need to be together and what they need to do.

Organisational change & transformation: including culture work and Organisation Design.

Practitioner development: supporting those tasked with changing and transforming organisations to be effective 'agents of change', whatever their label (Org Dev, HR, Change, Org Des etc).

Steve has been told he is “the right kind of fly in the ointment”. Clients have commented on his openness, honesty and integrity, a knack for asking questions that matter and a deftness of touch “which doesn’t let clients off the hook whilst also not leaving them feeling they are on the hook”.

He often finds himself working with individuals, teams and organisations to increase their capacity for collaboration and experimentation – both of which are indicators of a successful modern organisation, and has extensive experience developing consultancy and OD skills, for both internal and external practitioners. As an associate, Steve is part of the OD Faculty at Roffey Park Institute, where he launched the first-ever Digital Leadership Programme at a UK management/leadership education centre and is Co-Chair of the Organisation Development Network Europe.

As well as his first degree, Steve holds a Masters in Change Agent Skills & Strategies from the University of Surrey and is a qualified practitioner in both Human Systems Dynamics and Systemic Constellations. He is certified in Firo B and Dimensions profiling and is a Certified Digital Age Leadership Coach.
