Dr Mark McKergow started his career as a scientist and engineer in the nuclear industry and he has migrated into an international consultant, speaker and author, and director of the Centre for Solutions Focus at Work (SFWork). His first book The Solutions Focus has been translated into 11 languages. Mark is also heavily engaged developing the practice of “the leader as host” – his most recent book is Host: Six new rules roles of engagement for teams, organisations, communities and movements (Solutions Books, 2014). Many people around the world have been inspired by his work invariably presented with his inimitable blend of scientific rigour and performance pizzazz.
Mark has been involved in an impressive range of posts and activities in recent years having been a member of the Transformational Leadership Council in the USA from 2006-2016, was director of the HESIAN research hub at the University of Hertfordshire from 2014-2017, and he edited the peer-reviewed journal InterAction from 2009-2016. He is an associate of the Taos Institute, USA and has worked on every continent except Antarctica. He has recently moved to Scotland, which in spite of well-meaning warnings from acquaintances, is not at all like Antarctica after all!
