Jane Clarke

A top-flight consultant and director of the consultancy firm, Nicholson McBride, specializing in behavior in the workplace, Jane Clarke is probably best known for her work in the areas of office politics and organizational resilience.

As a business psychologist, her expertize is much in demand across both the private and public sectors, with global investment banks, law firms and government departments, all drawing on her skills to help them manage relationships and get more from people in an increasingly challenging economic environment.

Dividing her time between one-on-one coaching, organization-wide advice and addressing audiences of several hundred or more, both in the UK and the United States, Clarke moved into consulting after completing an MBA focused on organizational change in the early 90s.

She was asked to write her first book, Office Politics, on the back of a weekly column then published in the Independent newspaper and has since gone on to publish a further three books, including her latest: Savvy: Dealing with People, Power and Politics at Work (Kogan Page), published May 2012.

Clarke says the idea for the current book was sparked by the increase she had observed in office politics since the onset of the recession. "Office politics is relevant for two reasons right now: firstly, because it is massively on the increase. But also because so many people can't cope with it - or don't want to. I'm not naturally politically astute myself, which is probably why it's so fascinating to me. Fortunately, it's a skill anyone can learn - you just need to engage with it."

Clarke is a regular contributor and expert for a number of magazines and newspapers from Management Today and the Financial Times, through to Cosmopolitan and Marie Claire.
