Workplaces are tough. If you’re lucky, you meet exceptional people, make progress, reach fulfilment and connect to your true purpose. Or…you don’t. All too often, you can lose inspiration and motivation. Feel anxious. Exhausted. Isolated. Why are you doing this work? Does it have meaning for you? What can you do about it? Old certainties disappear and gaps open up where none existed before. But we believe that these gaps can be precious opportunities to take stock before you decide what to do next, both professionally and personally. Mind The Gap Transformations (MTGT) will help you to recognise and respond to these challenges.
When the call for work to be more meaningful becomes too loud, you sometimes require the support of others so you can ‘mind the gap’ successfully. Our experience and research tells us that how you lead and how you are led, how you look after yourself and others at work and how you connect with your working communities and networks changes the workplace and the people within them.
Mind The Gap Transformations offers courses, consultancy and coaching in the fields of leadership, wellbeing and relationships at work. Everything we do:
Our mission is to create environments and communities where you can learn, lead, nurture and challenge each other to ‘mind the gap’ successfully at work and in your lives.

Several words come to mind when thinking about Jeff Salter; insight, compassion, measured, knowledgeable, authoritative, considered and considerate come to mind, but two dominate. Firstly, humility; after decades as a professional, he still recognises that we can, and should, learn from others and the art of facilitation is to draw this innate knowledge out of people. The other word is integrity. You can rely on him approaching anything he does with complete integrity as he would not engage with a project unless he felt it was worth engaging with and doing his best by.
I have known Tina since she joined the Doctoral programme in Coaching and Mentoring at Oxford Brookes University. Tina is fantastic to work with, organised and inspiring, and always able to bring fresh perspective to arguments and issues. Tina’s approach to work is first class as she plans effectively and always works to deadlines. Her research skills show she is an excellent researcher as well as a highly competent manager who has a wide knowledge of coaching and mentoring across different contexts. It was a pleasure to write with Tina as she articulates her ideas very clearly and persuasively.
Jeff has a demonstrated ability to assess need within the field of leadership and organisational relationships and then initiate, conduct and evaluate qualitative research in such areas. From my experience working with him, I can say he has strengths in writing about trust and dark side leadership. He is able to get under the skin of such issues and works with integrity and honesty within such sensitive organisational areas. His working style is collaborative, open and questioning and is a pleasure to work with.
Jeff Salter is a manager and leader of substance. He is a relational practitioner, subtle influencer and engineer of change. Jeff has a firm grip on the process of personal, psychological and organisational transformation. He uses this knowledge and experience to deliver effective and sustainable results. Jeff has a knack of making the uncomfortable and disruptive feel calm and manageable.
I've worked with Amy for a number of years and have always been amazed and inspired by her work ethic and dedication to the fields of wellbeing, coaching and indeed any role she takes on. Her willingness to learn and attention to detail is exemplary and this shows in the outstanding work I've seen her produce both professionally and in her education. It is always a pleasure working with Amy, she is completely trustworthy and will always go above what is expected of her.
I had the pleasure to work with Tina as a doctoral researcher in Coaching and Mentoring. She has always been able to bridge the gap between theory and practice, combining her vast experience of helping individuals and organisations with a clear understanding of the underlying theories that govern performance and growth. Personally, Tina is one of the most approachable people I have worked with. I continue to enjoy her friendship and rich discussions we would have from time to time.
This is where we write about why Mind The Gap Transformations matters to us. You’ll find lots of value-led, participatory, community-creating stuff about leadership, wellbeing and relationships at work here.
