About Glenn Mead

I have been coaching and facilitating change formally since 2001. My background in leadership roles and leadership development, occupational psychology, executive coaching, organisation development and neuroscience gives me the skills, awareness and experience to help any individual at any level or team of any size in any industry to achieve change.

The qualifications I have gained through self-funded study in order to provide these specialist services include an MBA (Open University Business School), a BSc Psychology and MSc Occupational Psychology, an ILM Level 7 (Masters) in Executive Coaching and Leadership Mentoring, as well as Occupational and Personality Test User Level 2 (Personality Profiling), with qualification in the Hogan Development Survey (HDS) and TRIBE team identity method.

My professional career includes 9 years as a commissioned officer in the British Army, reaching the rank of major by 30 years old and fulfilling roles as an HR Director/Company Secretary of an infantry battalion on operations in Bosnia-Herzegovina. I led the first-ever British Army expedition to Lake Baikal in Siberia, Russia in 1995. I also held European-level operations management roles in Ernst & Young, Cap Gemini and Accenture, before working for a number of boutique psychology consultancies, including the company closely involved with Team GB cycling, swimming, taekwondo and canoeing.

I am supervised on a regular basis by an EMCC and ICF-accredited supervisor.

I live in Sheffield but work across the UK and Europe. When not working, I enjoy running in the hills on mountain marathons, watching my children grow up quickly, providing weekly Dad Taxi services, and enjoying a beer or two with friends – all with a self-improvement mindset, of course!
