John Dooner

My work is informed by the belief that Human Dignity is the key to great outcomes and after leaving my last Local Government post (2002), I had the opportunity to work with people and teams who were looking for better alignment, a sense of purpose beyond the now and an opportunity to resolve tensions and conflicts that were holding them back. There have been some huge turning points; the opportunity to work with people as an enabler/coach has been fantastic. I’m a qualified mediator working with individuals and teams and work with groups in developing approaches to see us into a challenging and exciting future that’s also just a bit scary! I like walking, cycling, photography and using my local gym. I delight in connecting with people and believe that we all of us, hold the present in stewardship for the future. I’ve been lucky because I’ve worked with great people, I have to quote Einstein and Oasis, “Stood on the Shoulders of Giants!”

Redefine your purpose or go!

Redefine your purpose or go! It’s heading toward the end of December 2020 and at this time of year, I usually put out a piece of reflection to my contacts. The idea is that they think about the things they want to leave behind this year and those they wish to carry with them, plan for and hopefully celebrate. I didn’t do it this year because we are in turmoil, laced with grief, sorrow and uncertainty. I’m angry and sad with my decision and at the same time completely understand my reasons for making it: an interesting ambiguity!
