Megan Reitz's Biography

Megan Reitz is Professor of Leadership and Dialogue at Ashridge where she speaks, researches, consults and supervises on the intersection of leadership, change, dialogue and mindfulness. She is on the Thinkers50 radar of global business thinkers and is ranked in HR Magazine’s Most Influential Thinkers listing. She has presented her research to audiences throughout the world and is the author of Dialogue in Organizations and Mind Time. Her recent book, from Financial Times Publishing, is called Speak Up, Say what Needs to be Said and Hear what Needs to be Heard.

Her research and publications, featured in Harvard Business Review and Forbes magazine, explore the neuroscience of leadership, the links between mindfulness and leadership capacities for the 21st century and the capacity to ‘speak truth to power’ and enable others to do the same.

Before joining Ashridge, Megan was a consultant with Deloitte; surfed the dot-com boom with boo.com; and worked in strategy consulting for The Kalchas Group, now the strategic arm of Computer Science Corporation. She was educated at Cambridge University and has a PhD from Cranfield School of Management. She is an accredited executive coach with Ashridge and The School of Coaching.

She is mother to two wonderful daughters who test her regularly on her powers of mindfulness and dialogue.
