Ash, a born and bred Southlander, has worked in New Zealand’s rural sector since 1999 including 11 years of rural banking. During this time he learnt the value of understanding his strengths, leveraging the strengths of others, and the influence of various leadership styles.
Ash is the Rural Services Manager for Southland accounting and business advisory firm, McIntyre Dick and Partners Limited. He is enthusiastic and committed to helping leaders and business owners develop clarity and realise their capability, using TetraMap and coaching conversations. “I get a real thrill when I see owners’ confidence grow, as they gain clarity within their business.”
Ash is also an associate of Coach Approach Limited and he sees coaching as the core foundation for the successful leadership of teams and growth of people.
Ash is a Certified TetraMap Facilitator. He is a Lincoln University graduate and is a member of the New Zealand Institute of Primary Industry Management (NZIPIM). His experience includes having been a director and shareholder of a Southland dairy farming operation.
Outside work, Ash has a young family and enjoys spending time with them in the outdoors. He enjoys most sports, and trying to stay fit when time permits.
TetraMap is a tool that any leader or group can use to enhance their understanding of those that they interact with. By growing that understanding you begin to see what you can do to improve as a leader and how to get the maximum from your day-to-day relationships.
At the end of a TetraMap session you will have experienced the following:
– You and your team will have had fun
– You will understand why people react the way they do under pressure
– You will know the best way to approach those around you
– You will have a greater understanding of individuals and how they might complement each other in a team environment
Ash is available to groups, teams or businesses as an external TetraMap facilitator, and his role sees him travel extensively throughout the lower South Island and further as required.
Our team had the best time doing the Tetramap training. Thanks to Ashley Burdon who facilitated an excellent afternoon, our team have a better understanding on communication between each of our teams and with customers. I would highly recommend this to others; the training also provided great team building with loads of laughter and fun!
