Get unstuck. Get going. Get ahead.

I help people make sense of their careers. I help leaders build great teams. I help teams build great cultures. Life is too short for stressful jobs filled with unending days and bottomless inboxes. 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 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.

Drop me a line if you feel the way that I do about our jobs, our careers, companies, and our planet. We're building a tribe. Let's lean into our humanity and our interconnectedness.
