PhD, Leadership, Cranfield University
Megan is Professor of Leadership and Dialogue at Ashridge where she speaks, researches, consults and supervises on the intersection of leadership, change, dialogue and mindfulness. She has presented her research to audiences throughout the world and is the author of Dialogue in Organizations; Developing Relational Leadership (Palgrave Macmillan, 2015) and Mind Time (Harper Thorsons 2018).
Her passion and curiosity centres around the quality of how we meet, see, hear, speak, learn with and encounter one another in organisational systems and how we might encourage dialogue which is more humane and opens the possibilities for human flourishing. Her research and publications explore the neuroscience of leadership, the links between mindfulness and leadership capacities for the 21st century and the capacity to ‘speak truth to power’ and enable others to do the same.
Before joining Ashridge, Megan was a consultant with Deloitte; surfed the dot-com boom with boo.com; and worked in strategy consulting for The Kalchas Group, now the strategic arm of Computer Science Corporation. She was educated at Cambridge University and has a PhD from Cranfield School of Management. She is an accredited executive coach with Ashridge and The School of Coaching and is qualified to deliver and feedback a range of psychometric instruments.
She is mother to two wonderful daughters who test her regularly on her powers of mindfulness and dialogue.
