I work across the entire people agenda and the talent continum by consulting with startup to midmarket companies and the people in them to achieve their best results providing support with business strategy, marketing, sales/business development, finance, operations, and human resources. Proven team builder who delivers effective support to C-suite and various leadership stakeholders.
At a fundamental level:
I partner with companies and individuals to grow leaders, become more agile, and develop teams utilizing a data-based approach to how people and teams work by applying that insight to real concepts and business issues, real-time. I am intentional about creating the space to leverage information and generate foresight, helping professionals, leaders and teams immediately develop concrete solutions to communicate, interact and perform at a higher level.
As a trusted advisor:
My passion is to help people achieve tangible improved business results with the mission to transform organizations and help leaders work effectively with team members at all levels across a variety of industries.
As a human behavior expert:
I provide transformational coaching that will polish your authentic strengths as well as explore and identify what your blind-spots may be through a holistic emotional intelligence approach!
Unique capabilities for success:
Recognizing that too many organizational improvement efforts fail to deliver against expectations, I set forth with the goal of seeking out and sharing with others the most effective models, tools and resources for creating a more healthy, productive and cohesive work environment, with focus on the three key areas of leadership practices, team behaviors and operational excellence.
Professional - To expand the existence of healthy organizations and great places to work
Personal - To serve my community and the people in my life (family, friends, clients, colleagues) with integrity, passion, respect and gratitude
Philosophy - Be a collaborator with fate as well as give wholeheartedly without expectations
