I work with the leaders of startups and highly-innovative organizations to increase their leadership capabilities and improve collaboration within the leadership team and across the organization. My work often results in the leadership team creating and implementing an explicit culture in their organizations.
I’ve been working in the business and leadership field for 20 years and have a unique background in business, psychology, and coaching (see client list.) I’ve worked with extraordinary leaders across every business function in a very wide range of organizations—including startups, Fortune 500s, the U.S. military, and many mission-driven organizations. I’ve had a period where I’ve worked with Disney, Burning Man, IBM, and a spiritual organization all within a few weeks. Simply put, I can help leaders their scale organizations, grow revenues, develop collaborative cultures, and in general, support them in making their vision a reality.
Most of the leaders I work with are very resourceful; I support them in focusing their attention on the issues that matter most. I provide perspective, highlight re-occurring patterns, and help them align their teams. Often, I just help leaders pay attention and attend to what they already know. The result is that they can bring more of themselves to their leadership, stop holding back, effectively resolve difficult situations, make bold decisions more quickly and with confidence, and truly step into their best leadership.
With this in mind, all of my clients create stretch goals as a way to orient their attention. We don’t use goals as obligations or burdens. Goals are a way to help my clients tune their attention, create a vision for their future, and move all aspects of their lives forward.
When I am not coaching, I speak, facilitate, and lead workshops, often around collaborative cultures and building trust. I have led leadership programs in over 85 cities throughout the world and am regularly in Europe, Asia, and most-often in South America. I have now been to over 80 countries. I lead programs on the following topics:
- Collaborative Cultures & Designed Ways to Work
- Innovation & Problem-Solving
- Decision Making
- Winning from Within
- Influence without Authority (Persuasion)
- Change Leadership
- Cross-cultural Challenges
- Difficult Conversations
- Conflict Resolution
With all this said, what I most enjoy is helping leaders build their organizations, gain clarity, and achieve their personal and professional goals.
