The Author
Steve Glowinkowski, BSc (Hons), MA, PhD, C.Psychol, FRSA

Steve’s early academic career was in the fi elds of organisational psychology, management and statistics. Steve is a Chartered Psychologist and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

Steve’s commercial background involved over ten years’ experience in a series of internal consultancy, managerial and Director roles within the chemical industry and the financial services sector. The majority of this work related to the delivery of major organisational change, the development of organisation-specifi c behavioural competency frameworks and their subsequent implementation within a leadership and talent management context. In this period, Steve worked extensively in North and South America, Asia, Australia, South Africa and Europe.

In the early 1990s, Steve established Glowinkowski International. This would operate in both the research and consultancy fi elds. The former would produce bespoke intellectual property, which could then be applied through consultancy activities in the areas of leadership behaviour, culture change and organisational performance improvement. Since founding the business, Steve has built up the reach of the organisation, which now works with a wide range of international organisations across a variety of sectors. These extend from global conglomerates to small, entrepreneurial start-ups, from major public sector entities to smaller organisations operating within the voluntary sector.

As a consultant, Steve has had extensive involvement in the assessment and development of senior managers and executive directors. He has also conducted extensive research into the question of what diff erentiates outstanding performance at the level of the individual, a team, a business function and an entire organisation. This research has led to the formulation of a cohesive set of methodologies, which have been implemented within numerous international organisations.
