Kris Bush is a Chartered Occupational Psychologist; a specialist in understanding people’s behaviour and performance in the workplace, both at an individual, team and wider organisational level.

Kris has focused much of her work on coaching, mentoring and assisting board level, senior and middle leaders in their personal development, (in the public, private and voluntary sectors).  She enjoys working with leaders who are facing challenges, as well as those who are looking to consolidate their strengths to progress further.

Kris has provided executive coaching to senior leaders in the Police Service, NHS, Universities, Government Departments, Regulatory sector, voluntary organisations and also for multinational private companies.  Her approach to coaching is to support leaders develop a greater awareness of what is really important to them and their organisation.  And then to challenge leaders to use this knowledge to next effect.

Kris has also worked with a wide range of leaders and team members to develop improved working in their teams. Kris is qualified to administer a wide range of psychometric tests and regularly uses them to support her coaching and team development work.  She has designed fun but practical team development days to ensure that learning is embedded in the workplace.  She is also a qualified mediator and has delivered some workable outcomes for people who have found it difficult to resolve issues in the workplace.

Kris has worked on many strategic, organisational development projects. These have often centred around organisational and cultural change, the evaluation of interventions and programmes, as well as projects to assess and improve equality and diversity.  Kris is involved with the Civil Service Multi Ethnic Talent Association where she is an executive coach and has delivered workshops for the programme.

Kris is has been recognised for applying her ‘psychological’ skills in the specific areas of preventing violence against women and elder abuse.  She has been commissioned by Government Departments, Government Offices, Local Authorities and national charities to carry out projects on these subjects.  She is also an associate of the Jill Dando Institute based in University College London and has an interest in domestic violence, elder abuse and multi-agency partnership working to address abuse.
