Duncan Lewin is an ex-Deloitte consultant specialised in helping people improve their skills in giving and receiving feedback, managing conflict more productively and handling difficult conversations.
A former ‘feedback-phobic’, Duncan was terrible at handling feedback and criticism. Like many, he had two ways of responding: aggressive and argumentative, or passive and resentful. Neither worked, and both left him stressed.
Eventually the stress got too much and he began a deep, personal journey in finding a new way of relating to feedback and conflicting opinions.
The results have been startling:
- Duncan now actively seeks feedback;
- feels comfortable with conflict;
- and has learnt how to handle even the most difficult conversations with (he hopes!) assertiveness and grace.
He works with a range of clients including BT, Accenture, Exxon Mobil and Canary Wharf Group.
