Besides working with his own clients in Spain—where he lived for 25 years—through Douglas McEncroe Group (the company he founded in 1991), Doug has also worked as a senior consultant and educator for Ashridge Management College—where he delivered their Open Leadership Development Program for six years—CCL, Accenture, DDI and Mercer/Oliver Wyman. As a representative of these companies, Doug carried out some 26 projects in 15 countries in English, Italian, Spanish and French.

Many of the projects that Doug designed and implemented involved supporting his clients to achieve greater alignment between their strategy, their organisational culture and their leadership. The leadership development programs and coaching were designed to strengthen this alignment and bring about tangible organisational improvement.

In 2010 he published his first book, Leadership: The Slow-Cooking Way, about his experiences in developing leadership development solutions in Europe. In 2011 he was invited by Spain’s leading financial newspaper, Expansión, to write their blog on leadership. In 2013 he translated his book into English and published it in Australia.

Douglas returned to his native Australia in 2012 and continued to deliver, through his own company, projects for Australian and multinational companies, prior to joining the Stephenson Mansell Group in 2016.
