Malcolm Nicholls
Certified LDI Facilitator, Senior Consultant
Malcolm has been working in the field of leadership development for the past 10 years, delivering the LDI to a broad spectrum of people and leaders over that time. The area of leadership that he is particularly interested in is men in leadership. He believes that men need to reframe the way that we lead ourselves and others (particularly in light of the #metoo movement). If you were to ask Malcolm what he believes leadership to be this is what he will tell you:

“I believe that leadership is not a set of skills that you learn from a book or seminar, which you then deliver to others. I believe leadership is a quality that you feel, that is then expressed through your body in the actions you take and the words you say. I believe our journey as a human being is a journey of leadership. It is learning how to live life, make decisions, grow through success and hardship, love and pain, to share, to connect, and to empathize. I believe that every human has to be a leader, if nothing else at least in their own life (and in many ways that is the only true way that we can really lead), but if we are to lead others then we do so from a place of encouraging them to pursue this personal ideal in themselves.”

Aside from working in the field of leadership Malcolm has also spent 15 years as a Hellerwork practitioner. Hellerwork is a modality of bodywork that brings people back into connection with the experience of living in their own body. He brings this understanding of the importance of the body into his work in leadership.
