I help people make sense of their careers. I help leaders build great teams. I help teams build great cultures. 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.

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