Coach and Leadership Trainer
Nick Ross, BA, FRSA, has been a leadership trainer and personal development coach for over 20 years. Coming from a professional background in addictions therapy his work today includes delivery of extensive leadership development programs and executive coaching to global companies and senior leaders.
As Director of a different drum, Nick brings his love of writing, poetry, storytelling and the wild to his work with executives and senior teams, to address and reflect on the place for soul at work and specifically the role of creative sanctuary in supporting healthy human well-being. He is also a coach and companion to many individual leaders going through periods of significant transition in their personal and professional lives. His focus with both individual leaders and wider organisations is increasingly related to the global eco-systemic crisis and in light of the climate emergency he has decided to stop flying for work or pleasure in 2020.
Nick works closely today with leaders and elders of the Yawanawa tribe from the Amazon Rainforest in the Province of Acre in Western Brazil. Nick hosts annual cultural visits by tribal representatives from the village of Yawarani to the UK .
When not working with leaders and organisations Nick is most likely to be found co-running a 2 acre market garden in Somerset with his long term partner Tia providing organic seasonal food to the village and local shops and a learning resource within the local community. He is a member of the Deep Adaptation Forum founded by Jem Bendell and a member of Extinction Rebellion.
