"My name is Christopher Thomas Sinclair Harvey. It is my personal agenda to change the way organisations approach talent development and change management.
Organisations must bring their people with them through significant change regimes. That's the essence of why I founded Harvey Sinclair; addressing the personal side of human resource management. Individuals, teams, and organizations are under more and more pressure to be at their very best in today's dynamic and competitive marketplace and I want to assist in making change as seamless and beneficial as possible."
Christopher has a track record of delivering change and accelerating the development of leadership skills across industries, businesses, and functions. As an executive coach, Christopher believes that great people and great leaders make a difference on business results and they consistently help those people and leaders become great.
Educated at St Andrews (MA) and Harvard Universities respectively, with a background in psychology and 10 years of international corporate leadership for some of the world’s most reputable organisations and through his work as an executive coach, Christopher fully understands all the dynamics involved in managing a stressful work/life balance, striving for perfection and dealing with failure.
For over a decade he worked in roles of ever increasing managerial responsibility across the globe with some of the world’s largest organisations. He has successfully completed internationally recognised leadership training programmes, mentoring and coaching, attaining a position on the corporate leadership team within a multinational corporation, managing several offices and extensive remote teams.
Christopher has accumulated global experience of hiring, firing, managing several rounds of redundancy, managing through significant change regimes including acquisition, dealing with relocation & cultural shift, amongst many other insightful professional experiences. All this experience positions him perfectly as an executive coach.
Executive Coach Thought Leader
Christopher is the UK’s thought leader on the subject of work place resilience. A regular contributor for GQ magazine on the future of the workplace, he has also written feature articles for publications such as The Telegraph and HR Magazine as an expert on corporate wellbeing and the future of executive coaching. He can be heard regularly across various broadcasting media outlets including BBC Radio.
The extensive catalogue of relevant qualifications and accreditations Christopher possesses allows him to provide the very best coaching available. In particular his ACC (Associate Certified Coach) accreditation and membership to the ICF provides clients with the very highest level of quality, confidentiality and ethical practice attainable in the world of coaching. Christopher’s official ICF profile can be seen here.
The ICF is the global body for the governance of professional coaches. Its mission is to advance the art, science and practice of coaching and to represent the highest quality in professional coaching through high standards, independent certification and building a worldwide network of credentialed coaches.
Whilst achieving in his academic and professional career, Christopher has been through his fair share of adversity in his personal life; a torrid divorce between his parents, several family deaths and a failed marriage of his own at a young age, to name but a few. Adversity takes its toll on us all and he knows what this feels and looks like. A decade of battling OCD, body dysmorphia and depression saw Christopher sink to the darkest depths of unhappiness with his life. “Once you’ve been to that place, that’s when the fight or flight mode kicks in and you accept that there is no silver bullet solution” he often recalls.
Christopher’s road to excellence has come at a price, financially and metaphorically over the years, but this need not be the case for you. He has proven results in adding huge value to an organisation’s talent base. Whether it be from improved productivity, retention, creativity or general staff satisfaction, the investment repays itself many times over!
