Who we are

Dr Jacqueline Scholes-Rhodes

Jacqui Scholes-RhodesJacqueline is a commercial practitioner with over twenty five years’ experience of working in large corporate environments where she has led and facilitated large-scale transformation across sectors. Her interest in the capacity of individuals to radically transform their lives and to re-connect with a sense of their ‘true’ self provided the basis for her PhD research in 2002. Since then she has further developed this inquiry approach as a powerful way of facilitating the connections between individuals, teams and groups who aspire to work in joined-up ways.

Jacqueline specialises in working in contexts of complex change, and is able to challenge the unspoken frameworks that hold both individuals and teams ‘stuck’ in unhelpful behaviours and beliefs.

In January 2011 she published a paper entitled “Exploring an extended role for coaching: through the eyes of an action researcher” in the Educational Journal of Living Theories (EJOLTS).
