Founder and Director
Carol O’Connor, PhD started Vision in Practice Ltd. in 1991 following a career as a team builder for industry and education. She has worked for more than 30 years with an international list of clients helping leaders define the professional behaviour which enables them to realise their strategic goals, clarify company standards, and recruit the kind of staff that grows with the business.
An underlying principle of all her work is to identify the causes of problems and address those rather than surface symptoms. Her doctorate is in educational psychology and is from the University of California, Santa Barbara where she conducted research in communication breakdown in management groups as well as in decision-making effectiveness.
Author of seven books on business, she writes frequently for professional journals on topics of leadership, communication, business strategy, and motivation basing all of this written work on her direct experience as a consultant and trainer. Her Leadership in a Week, published by Hodder Education is available in Spring 2012 in its fourth edition. Its previous editions were translated into more than 22 languages.
