James Traeger, BA(Hons), PG Dip, PhD

James is an organisational and personal development specialist with extensive practical delivery and teaching experience.

From 1996-2006 he specialised in organisational and leadership development, with clients including the Metropolitan Police Service, Newham NHS Trust, Surrey County Council, Thus Plc and the University of Cambridge. He created the Navigator Men’s Development Programme and won acclaim for his work on the Metropolitan Police’s ‘gender agenda’.

It was a yearning to get under the skin of this gender work that brought him to Action Research and Inquiry. In 2004, he started the journey towards an inquiry-based PhD. His thesis, entitled On Mentshlichkeit: An Inquiry into the Practice of Being a Good Man, was the culmination of six years of action research into the discomforts and dilemmas faced by a man attempting to ‘be the change’ of a masculinity that actively attempts to disrupt the sexist power structures of organisations, rather than just ‘talking about it’. In this work, he was inspired into futuristic narrative and dialogue, by the loving voices of challenge and support he heard in the course of his diverse roles in work and learning communities, and as a father and a Jew.
