I work with people to become better versions of themselves so they may live and lead more fully, authentically and courageously.
How do I do this? I get people in touch with who they are, their strengths, areas for growth, triggers, patterns and values, so that they can lead and engage others from a strong sense of self.
The research is conclusive that the number one variable that determines effective leadership is self-awareness, and though inquiry, activities, assessments, feedback, and reflection, I help individuals, groups, and teams to become more self-aware.
I also believe strongly in group dynamics, which refers to the often-unconscious processes that occur when people interact in groups. Leadership involves others, and many people need help in understanding how to create a shared vision, inspire people to act, and build a culture that reflects ethics and values. At the end of the day, we want to get s#!t done, get it done well, and feel happy with not only what we accomplished, but how we accomplished it.
