    Seeing many leaders and organisations failing to achieve their true potential, Chris Roebuck developed an innovative and highly effective approach to re-energise and inspire leaders to achieve that potential : Mach 2 “I CARE” Leadership. This enables leaders escape the “mechanical” leadership approach and use a more passionate “human” leadership style that is proven, via constant innovation and improvement, to unleash hidden potential that’s otherwise wasted. This is through creating a “we not me” and "I care" attitude. This founded is on his unique experience built up over 35 years by:
