Trusted to serve

If it has to do with executive performance, look no further. I am passionate about helping leaders think, communicate, and collaborate differently. I know I’ve made a difference when my clients’ organizations, teams, and careers align and thrive.

All too often, a team fights its own success. And I’ve seen boards try to eat CEOs for lunch. It shouldn’t be that hard for people to work together.

I make it a lot easier.

For fifteen years, I have advised senior leaders on strategy and risk. And I have served on seven boards in corporate and non-profit settings. Along the way, I developed the tools and skills needed to facilitate strategic discussions and coach executives to greater performance.

I work with clients in three ways:

  • As a facilitator, I help executive teams and boards develop their strategy and design their plan for action
  • As an executive coach, I work one-on-one with executives and board directors as they elevate their performance
  • Through my online courses, I give directors actionable guidance to help them build careers on boards and add measurable value to the organizations they serve.
