Will Hogg – Managing Director of Kinetic Consulting. Fix your purpose and the rest follows.
Will has always strived to keep “purpose” front and centre through 3 distinct careers. After working in an inner-city youth club and completing his degree, he was an Officer in the British Army, serving in places like Bosnia and Northern Ireland.
His second career, in the Corporate world, was at Procter & Gamble where he was the HR Director of a Global Business Unit. His third professional experience is his current role, where he has built an organisation of roughly 50 consultants who have worked with more than 70 Global companies. In these 3 very different contexts, his single-minded, consistent focus has been to help others to find and unleash hidden potential: put differently, his purpose is to help individuals and teams to find their purpose so that they can leave their unique, positive footprint. Having participated in ultra-marathons and having been through life-threatening surgery, his simple conviction is that the higher and clearer your sense of purpose, the more resilient and effective you are.
Our definition of success is enabling our clients to achieve outstanding results and sustainable competitive advantage. This drive to make an impact is rooted in our ethos. We firmly believe that vision without action is a daydream and action without vision is a nightmare. Which is why all of our consultants are senior business leaders, ensuring a real life understanding of the challenges and opportunities that you face.
Will asks: How do you develop the essential “4C’s” elements of leadership: Clarity, Cohesion, Contribution and Character?
Our Kinetic Capability Leadership Academy delivers a unique combination of experiential and theory-based leadership training, built around our model of the 4C’s. In a business context, the development of each of the leadership functions delivers tangible benefits to the individual and to their teams.
Will I have found to be both humble and inspiring and can see why he attracts talented developers and Global clients around him.
Will‘s international Leadership experience spans more than 20 years in Consulting, Corporate and Military contexts. Kinetic’s ‘Vision into Action’ approach directly reflects his Strategy and Leadership experience in some of the world’s most admired organisations: Procter & Gamble and the British Army.
His last role before founding Kinetic was as HR Director P&G Salon Professional, a stand-alone Global business unit with 7000 employees in 50 countries.
Living in Switzerland, Will mountaineers and competes in ultra-marathons. He has a keen interest in History, Politics and Philosophy.
