We live in a culture that often sees failure as a personal – ‘I am a failure because xxxx happened’ vs ‘I failed when I let xxxx happen.’ When we keep this perspective, failing and making mistakes is about being human. We fail, we learn from our failures, we get up, do better and move […]
As a certified professional coach, I serve as a catalyst for people reaching their highest potential. I work with people who are seeking more fulfillment in their success, deeper meaning and purpose in life and work, and ways to make more meaningful contributions. If this sounds like what you yearn for, we would make a good team.
When you choose to work with me, you will develop habits and practices to get more satisfaction out of day-to-day life and how to build your resilience, avoiding that burnout stage we all fear.
“Your playing small doesn’t serve the world*,” is a motto I truly believe in. When you learn how to be your best self you are able to make bigger contributions to the world and feel at peace with your successes while being in alignment with what matters most to you, something I assist my clients in achieving.
During our one-on-one coaching sessions, I will assist you in developing greater confidence, becoming more effective and living your best life. I will ask insightful questions to help you discover your core values, gifts, talents and purpose, helping you find ways to expand your personal and professional life.
I also work with entire teams, helping them become more engaged, cohesive and powerful as a group. I help deepen their culture of trust and accountability, which strengthens the team and makes it more productive and effective.
Coaching sessions, combined with workshops and retreats, can guide you through the process of aligning your goals, visions and strengths, so that your team can accomplish big things. Things you can only accomplish when your group is focused, driven and completely unified.

In my last series I focused on how people perceive what we say or do. Sometimes, what we say or do is an innocent mistake and sometimes we have simply messed up. In either case it serves us to know how to apologize. Many people apologize in a manner that seems to add insult to […]
One of the most important things for leaders to embrace is their humanness — their human messiness. The messiness of failure is inescapable and necessary for those who lead courageously. It is in how you acknowledge and handle your failures that make all of the difference in people experiencing you as confidently vulnerable, authentic and trustworthy. […]
Building and maintaining a culture of trust is simultaneously complex and simple — it is all about you and not about you. Learning this dance is a critical skill for successful leadership. As you go about your daily work, keeping your eye on the three of the components of trust — Reliability, Sincerity and Competence — […]
Working with successful leaders over the years I’ve found the better a leader is at standing in another’s reality the better that leader is at managing perceptions. From a strengths perspective, if we have context for understanding the ‘common sense perceptions’ of others it’s easier to stand in another’s reality. The interplay of our individual strengths creates our […]
Coming to realize (or know) what we are blind to can be very empowering and motivating to the teams you lead. It provides them a space to add value, a space for the contribution of their strengths in confident vulnerability. It is the transparency and humbleness of the leader’s demonstration of confident vulnerability that creates room at […]
