Get unstuck. Get going. Get ahead.
I help people make sense of their careers. 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 stressful jobs filled with unending days and bottomless inboxes.
I help leaders build great teams — and I help teams build great cultures. 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…

I believe that work shouldn't be so hard. The purpose of a job is to earn a livelihood; and the purpose of a livelihood is to create space in your life to connect with your community and contribute to society in a meaningful way.
My goal is to help people who have to work for a living … people who've reinvented themselves time and time again to earn a livelihood … people who never stop searching, never stop growing, never stop learning. This has been my journey. These are a few of the things I've learned along the way.

“Continuous Improvement” is a mantra for just about all areas of our businesses and — if we’re ambitious — our lives. Companies make huge investments in everything from lean manufacturing to agile development methodologies knowing that the best way to make things better is through steady and continuous improvement. We reengineer our business processes to have feedback loops so we can learn from what we have done and build on those learnings.

Well, almost nothing.Read more…
Success can be elusive. The building blocks of success are subtle and nuanced. For those who have made it big, the real reasons for their success are rarely the things they remember and write about.
This is where mentors come in.
In our quest for growth, progress, and success, we have this latent desire for someone who will take us under their wing and co-pilot our journey from the mailroom to the corner office. Or, more realistically, we imagine a relationship with a mentor who meets with us once or twice a month over a long period of time and imparts wisdom like a college professor working through a syllabus.
It doesn't work that way.Read more…
