Better Leadership
Better Teams
Better Lives

Imagine going to work every day with a clear sense of how to add value in an organization that is infused with energy and enthusiasm. Life is too short for bad leaders and stressful jobs filled with unending days and bottomless inboxes.

I help people make sense of their careers — I help leaders build great teams — and I help teams build great cultures. Lately I have been helping people who escape — and heal — from capitalism.

In essence, people come to me for leadership development, executive presence, team building, career strategy, job search, interview preparation, getting unstuck, getting promoted, navigating the nuances of large organizations, and figuring out what's next.

It's different here…

There are no ads, no affiliate links, no pop-ups, and no tricks to get your email address. I'm on a mission to make the world a better place to work and I'm looking for allies to help me in that mission.

Spend some time browsing the site. There's a ton of helpful stuff here, including a bunch of free downloads. There's a wealth of great articles too. You'll find ideas on everything from setting up your LinkedIn profile to building a cohesive leadership team. For a good read, peruse some of the most popular articles on my blog.

Check out my book if you want to improve your professional relationships — with your colleagues as well as your wider professional network. Set up an exploratory coaching call if you want to take the reins on your career or jump-start your team.  And if you want to stay connected, join my email list for regular updates.

I wish you success…

I’m looking to add some talent to the team. The last couple of years have been rough, no doubt, but this feels like the dawn of a new era. We’ve had the Great Conjunction, the Great Resignation, and some say we are in the middle of the Great Turning. I can’t be sure, but I think that this time the Great Pumpkin will finally came as well. I am looking for partners who will join…

The 17 Books That Shaped Me in 2021

Pile of books on a white background

Here are the books that nourished my soul, satisfied my curiosity, and shaped my thinking in 2021.

Of the seventeen books in the stack,

  • Thirteen (76%) were non-fiction.
  • While I only read four fiction books this year, one of them — The Stand — was 1,300 pages! Seems like that should count as at least three books, no? 😁
  • All but three were on the Kindle. I also read one in paperback, one in hardcover, and one as an ePub that I was able to buy directly from the author. (It was a breeze to upload it into Apple Books on my iPad.)
