About Me

My Experience

My name is Clive Rounce. I am a chartered engineer and a chartered manager with over 30 years’ experience gained in manufacturing, general operations, engineering contracting and a public / private partnership.

My knowledge and capabilities include technical problem-solving, organisational development, performance improvement and change management, most recently as Head of Continuous Improvement for a large engineering organisation.

My Journey

I became interested in the ‘human side of enterprise’ early in my career whilst working on technical projects in a manufacturing organisation. I realised that the technical solutions, plant and equipment and procedures were necessary but not sufficient.  We needed the teams to be fully involved and motivated – and we needed their knowledge and expertise to develop the best solutions in the first place.

I moved into operations and, ever since, I have been reading and learning about effective management of individuals and teams – and implementing this learning as a practicing manager.

My beliefs

I started Windhover Management Coaching because I believe the coaching process is the most effective way to help people achieve their potential:

  • • I believe in the inherent value of every individual and the potential that we all have to do amazing things
  • • I believe that the key to business and organisational success lies in releasing and coordinating that individual potential in pursuit of a meaningful purpose
  • • I believe that leaders and managers have distinct and pivotal roles in engaging individuals to enable them to contribute fully to business and organisational success
  • • I believe that coaching is the best way to support and enable leaders and managers to be effective in these challenging roles
