Mike Roe

Chief Executive

Mike is the Chief Executive of Tensense and Leader of the Footdown Bath Fifteen. He was a police officer in the Avon & Somerset Constabulary. In a career of over 25 years dominated by CID work, he considers the seven years as Commander in Bristol as the most profound. Not only was he responsible for amalgamating three command units into one, but his time was marked by an influx of crack cocaine and the associated serious crime. Passionate about teamwork and leadership, Mike joined originally as a member of the Bath fifteen in 2004 and has been active in encouraging other senior police officers to join Footdown Fifteen Groups.

In 2007, he was awarded a level 7 Diploma in Leadership Mentoring and Executive Coaching, through Walking with Leaders Ltd and accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management.

Coaching CEOs and other business leaders for several years he is also accredited to use the Executive and Personal coaching tool, Insights Discovery. He has led the Bath Footdown Fifteen group since 2007, which has involved facilitating monthly group mentoring meetings and one to one personal coaching sessions with senior executive leaders and entrepreneurs. Mike has also been delivering team effectiveness and development workshops for the last seven years.

Mike was a senior police officer for over 25 years, and during that time was awarded a 2:1 degree in Police Studies from the University of Glamorgan and a diploma in Organisational Development from the University of Manchester.

Leaders need to understand their organisation’s “nervous system”
