Biography Olya Khaleelee

 Olya Khaleelee is an organisational consultant in change management, with a particular focus on leadership and group process.  Her areas of expertise are Organisational Consultancy, Team Building/Group Dynamics, Executive Coaching, Mentoring, Developmental Role Consultations, Assessment of Senior Managers and Directors. 

She embodies a broad range of training and experience with individuals, groups and organisations.  She takes a systemic approach and encourages an understanding of the hidden agendas that operate at each of these levels.  She believes that by having an understanding of these and of how their own behaviour and values impact on others interpersonally and in groups, leaders will be able to take up their roles even more effectively.

Olya has a particular interest in organisation change and works with boards, leaders, senior managements and other significant groupings in a dynamic way.  This way of working enables senior managers to understand their own roles better as well as developing a good grasp of the dynamic of the group as a whole and how to influence it.  Greater understanding and clarity fosters in senior managers a better capacity to work together at the strategic level.  Olya integrates her training as an occupational psychologist and experience with corporate dynamics with her understanding of systems thinking.  This brings together work at the task level with an awareness of the impact of hidden agendas and political processes, therefore enabling more effective outcomes and pragmatic solutions.

Olya is a social scientist and began her career at London Business School in the field of organisational behaviour research.  She moved into the business world as an internal consultant, focusing on the impact of acquisitions and mergers.  She developed her understanding of group relations and group dynamics as an Associate of the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations and has worked as an independent practitioner with a portfolio of roles for the last 30 years.  Her interest in group dynamics and group relations focuses on the themes of authority, leadership and organisation.  She has designed and directed many workshops on leadership, group and organisational behaviour.

During the 1990's she was appointed Policy Adviser to the Group Relations Training Programme of the Tavistock Institute, which sponsors group relations conferences.  She works internationally and has published extensively.
