I like to see folks functioning better, individually and collectively. I love to play a part in making that happen.
I serve as a friend and counsel for all CxOs and staff trying to change their tech organisations for the better, in particular through the discipline and practice of Organisational Psychotherapy. I often play the role of Chaos Monkey or Omega Wolf.
My motto is: “Do nothing that isn’t play.”
Sometimes, when pressed, I’ll pigeonhole myself as an Organisational Psychotherapist or transition specialist.
My Media Presence
You can find me across various media, including:
My Philosophy and Perspective
“I believe that a Rightshift of collaborative knowledge-work businesses brings improved health, wealth and wisdom for individuals, for the organisations in which they work, and for society at large.”
– Bob Marshall (FlowchainSensei)
You can read more about the Rightshifting Ethos, here.
Via this blog, I share insights of particular interest to CxOs, other senior business managers, and development folks more generally – into the always exciting, often frustrating and sometimes downright opaque world of knowledge work, i.e. software and product development.
I speak occasionally – by invitation only – at national and international conferences and other events.
Here’s a collection of links to some of my past presentations:
