BETTER LEADERS MAKE BETTER DECISIONS
Few factors have a stronger correlation to organizational success than executive leadership abilities. Yet companies and organizations often fail to give their leaders the thinking skills, disciplines and tools they need to lead.
We help companies thrive by inspiring better leaders,
creating better plans and developing better teams.
My 35+ year career has been devoted to helping executives transform their business, leadership skills and team dynamics. I bring a thoughtful, honest and learning-based approach to leadership development, executive team building, executive coaching, board governance, strategic planning, C-suite succession planning, and public speaking.
I’ve collaborated with large and small companies and partnerships across a variety of industries including Accounting/Professional Services, Construction, Engineering, Financial Services, and Technology. I take pride in being a member of our client’s team and am committed to their personal and professional success.
