Welcome to Autonomy .... and your journey
Autonomy is led by Paul Dixon. I have over 25 years experience as a senior Learning and Development/HR professional and was formerly Head of the Staff Training and Development Unit at the University of Manchester and Chair of the national Staff Development Forum for Higher Education. Developing the personal autonomy of clients is central to the work I do. In line with the philosophy and practice of Transactional Analysis I define autonomy as:
The capacity to make informed choices and act with full responsibility in the here and now....taking into account the needs and rights of others....unencumbered by rigid past influences, patterns of thought, and experience.
Personal autonomy underlies flexible and sensitive leadership and management. It enables choice which underpins all aspects of skilled and context specific professional practice. My work is designed to facilitate longer term personal growth, self awareness and behavioural change. Please take a tour of my web site and check out where your journey to autonomy might begin, from a range of services available: Laughter Yoga and Facilitation; Coaching; Leadership and Management Development, and other possibilities.
