Juliet Hancock – consultant, coach, founder, Engaging Values
I believe our values drive our decision making and behaviour, where we put our energy and where we gain fulfilment. I have founded Engaging Values because this aligns with my personal values of working collaboratively with others to develop people and transform organisations to be the best they can be – for themselves, their staff and customers and for wider society.
Now there are more economic and social challenges than ever to providing meaningful work, enabling a balanced life, engaging people to give their best, maintaining trust and delivering services in new and different ways. We need to tap into all our inner resources and experience of those around us to release the energy, inspiration and potential to find solutions and build confidence for the future.
My professional background is HR – I am a chartered member of the CIPD, and member of the Association for Coaching. I started my working life in the manufacturing and electronics industries, moving into information technology in HR management roles. Developing people and organisations has always been my interest and passion, and I have been able do this as a freelance consultant across a wide range of small, large, public and private sector organisations and more recently in learning and organisation development roles for the social housing regulator.
Whether as colleague, manager, consultant or coach I have enjoyed working collaboratively with others, through encouragement, challenge, building insight and understanding, so that improved systems, processes and ways of working emerge that achieve better personal and organisation outcomes.
Engaging Values wants to work with people who are up for the challenge of doing things differently, who realise they don’t have all the answers but who are prepared to lift ‘the cloud of limitation’ (Lord Coe, Olympics 2012) to find a better way. We will work with you to help you make the difference that matters to you and the people who matter to you.
“It is time to face the truth of our situation – that we’re all in this together, that we all have a voice – and figure out how to mobilise the hearts and minds of everyone in our workplaces and communities”
Margaret Wheatley with Debbie Frieze, Leadership in the Age of Complexity, 2010
