In July we interviewed Gavin Blakey OAM – Humanitarian, Engineer, International Leader and he spoke about the power of dealing with adversity, being driven to a make a difference, and the importance of seeing the potential in yourself and others.
We also asked Gavin what books he would recommended to other leaders, these are his suggestions:
LEADING in the Innovation Age - Unleash knowledge, talent and experience to create an innovative workplace by Dr Irena Yashin-Shaw
“This is a great guide to harnessing the talent in organisations in the service of innovation - it’s leadership in action.”
The Wise Advocate - The Inner Voice of Strategic Leadership by Art Kleiner, Jeffrey M Schwartz, Josie Thomson
“This is an insightful book on tapping into our inner knowing. Listening to that quiet voice inside of us to guide us in our leadership roles and leadership journey.”
The Coaching Science Practitioner Handbook by Tunde Erdös and Angelis Iglesias
“Maureen and Anindita’s I really enjoyed reflections on your participation in this international research project. Reflecting on your chapters, all of your content was insightful for me and the lessons you articulate apply to leadership as well as coaching.”

My work is fuelled by a deep love of the human spirit and the innate potential I believe resides within each of us.
