"My name is Christopher Thomas Sinclair Harvey. It is my personal agenda to change the way organisations approach talent development and mental wellbeing.
To be truly effective and sustainable, coaching must address the whole individual, personal & professional. That's the essence of why I founded Harvey Sinclair; addressing your foundations to ensure you are fully functional, whilst finding your version of exceptional and empowering your ambitions to take care of the rest."
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 largest most reputable organisations, Christopher fully understands all the dynamics involved in managing a stressful work/life balance, striving for perfection and dealing with failure.
Christopher has written feature articles for publications such as GQ & The Telegraph as an expert on corporate wellbeing and the future of executive coaching. He can also be heard regularly across various broadcasting media outlets including BBC Radio, being interviewed and taking calls from the public on how to better manage our mental health. Christopher is an official Huff Post blogger and has been privately commissioned to produce informative material targeted specifically at burnout in the city.
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.
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.
His fight mode is now so strong and so well versed that no challenge the world can offer up intimidates or threatens him. A fully integrated and seamless system of lifestyle disciplines now sees Christopher live a most rewarding life. It has come at a price, financially and metaphorically over the years, but this need not be the case for you. Christopher has set about recruiting the very best team of resilience coaches in the world to form Harvey Sinclair and we have 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!
