For Zia Malik, organisational change doesn’t just mean adopting new processes and working in new ways. It isn’t even simply about thinking in new ways. True transformation requires challenging beliefs, and that means changing people from the inside.
He works with frameworks such as Scrum, but recognises that these don’t exist in a vacuum. People work within them and adapt to them, and Zia spends much of his time focusing on the psychological motivations and barriers involved in personal and organisational change. Ultimately it’s about moving from structures and mindsets inherited from the Industrial Revolution towards a smarter way of organising ourselves.
Zia’s training and coaching is both inspiring and thought-provoking, aimed at giving people a set of tools, techniques and concepts they can use to achieve and sustain genuine transformation.
Zia is one of a small number of UK Certified Enterprise Coaches (CEC) with the Scrum Alliance, and an experienced agile trainer, Certified Scrum Trainer (CST) and professionally trained coach in business and personal coaching, accredited by the International Coach Federation.
He has worked as an enterprise coach in a range of industries including fintech, aerospace, pharma and retail, working with individuals, teams and organisations.
