We are five seasoned professionals based in the British Isles committed to supporting and enabling leaders and followers to thrive in complexity.
Our project began in March 2020 with the publication of the GAP manifesto, an invitation to “investigators, initiators and instigators” to join a new form of exploratory peer group. The groups work without agenda – but with a shared intent of moving organisations towards balance with the wider needs of society, ecosystems and planet by harnessing the power of community and deep dialogue.
Geoff’s mission is to infuse a learning orientation into how work gets done in organisations. He is an experienced capability development consultant with a track record of leading change in Ireland and internationally. His expertise lies in creating the space for leaders and their organisations to discover a context for their success. He does this by facilitating a vision of a better future to emerge, enabling access to the capabilities and resources required for achieving that future and by bringing accountability to the execution process.
Ciaran J. Duggan
I am Ciaran Duggan; I live in rural Ireland with the love of my life Annette with whom I have five wonderful twenty-something independent children and where I tend the land my ancestors have for the last three hundred years. I have pursued many family, community and business ventures in life up to this point with varyingdegrees of success and failure. I use the insights I have gained to assist others in their endeavours whenever possible.
Stephen Done – I started my career as a scientist and engineer (too much meccano as a child).I spent the middle part of my life, 23yrs, in industry and management, building and inventing things. Of late I have trained as a coach, and I now helps people and companies be their best through creative means. I have a Hanovarian horse who teaches me much on communication and leadership.
I have four decades of experience working with organizations in rapid change, from C suite corporate roles, to running my own businesses. I have worked and lived in China, India, Switzerland, USA and sometimes the UK. I specialise in helping others to make sense of the complex systems they find themselves part of, to identify the actions needed to harness the uncertainty and turn it into the energy that achieves business growth and personal fulfilment.
