Nick Ross - Leadership Trainer and Coach Leading in a Climate Changed World

    • Society & Culture

Nick Ross has been a leadership trainer and personal development coach for over 20 years.  Coming from a professional background in addictions therapy his work today includes delivery of extensive leadership development programs and executive coaching to global companies and senior leaders.


As Director of A Different Drum, Nick brings his love of writing, poetry, storytelling and the wild to his work with executives and senior teams, to address and reflect on the place of soul at work and specifically the role of creative sanctuary in supporting healthy human well-being. He is also a coach and companion to many individual leaders going through periods of significant transition in their personal and professional lives.


Nick has chosen to stop flying for work or pleasure in 2020 because of the climate emergency and with colleagues and partners is turning his attention towards finding ways to successfully engage businesses and organisations in constructive dialogue about the ecosystemic crisis.


Nick has a longstanding interest in the exploration of human consciousness.  He draws his inspiration from time spent learning from a variety of aboriginal cultures and influential mentors including Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, Parker Palmer and Robert Monroe.


 Nick works closely today with leaders and elders of the Yawanawa tribe from the Amazon Rainforest in Western Brazil and hosts annual cultural visits by tribal representatives from the village of Yawarani to the UK


When not working with leaders and organisations Nick is most likely to be found co-running a 2 acre market garden in Somerset with his long term partner Tia providing organic food and a learning resource within the local community. He is a member of the Deep Adaptation Forum founded by Jem Bendell and a member of Extinction Rebellion.
