Hi, I’m Obi James
The world of work is a fast moving one. It’s my job to ensure that leaders stay ahead of the curve.
I am a Finnish-Nigerian Inclusive Leadership Expert committed to creating inclusive cultures of shared leadership and empowered relationships where every individual can thrive. Having developed leaders and teams in high-profile, global companies such as Bloomberg, Morgan Stanley, and the Bank of America, I know that the success of an organisation is dependent on a healthy distribution of power and influence.
The traditional model of leadership relied on a top down hierarchy, often with one individual being responsible for the bulk of the decision making, but standards of great leadership are changing. So how do we transition from the old model of authority, to a new, more inclusive and sustainable one?
That’s where I come in.
I have equipped 100’s of clients with the tools and capability to nurture individual potential and increase collective performance by embracing healthy conflict, spreading influence and harnessing diversity as the engine for innovation.
Stay ahead of the curve and transform your company today.

“As an experienced leader it isn’t often that a leadership book makes me stop, think, re-read and reflect but Let Go Leadership did just that. I challenge any leader to read this and not find a paragraph that could have been written for them.”
– Melanie Seymour – Advisory Board, Women in Banking & Finance
Let Go Leadership – How inclusive leaders share power to drive high performance.
In this leadership book, Obi demonstrates that a truly inclusive world can only become a reality when you can unreservedly embrace the diversity of those around you. It is not enough just to surround yourself with a diverse team: only through inclusive leadership will you be able to successfully harness the collective wisdom, creativity and talent that diversity offers.
The book places inclusion firmly in the hands of the leader, challenging your existing leadership practice whilst identifying and tackling the tendencies that can derail your efforts towards diversity and inclusion.
