Common Characteristics of Our Most Successful Clients:

Growth Mindset:  Our clients care about best practice in everything they do, including training their teams, supporting diversity and sustaining relationships.

Multi Faceted: Our clients manage multiple, and complex relationships with many stakeholders including staff, boards, donors, vendors, parents, patients, parishioners, family, kids and community.

Crazy Busy: Our clients have an overflowing plate of responsibilities and need their staff and teams to equally embrace a growth mindset and manage multiple relationships (very) well.

Curious Cats: Our clients are curious and they intentionally create and invest in a culture of learning and growth for their teams.

Servant-Leadership Matters: Our clients prefer to serve in the leadership role as a first among equals. They want a culture of continuous learning where leaders emerge at every level.

Team Lovers: Our clients don’t have all the answers, and they don’t want to either. They want their staff to step up, at every level, to participate in problem solving and solutions.

Risk Takers: Our clients take risks and they model the way. They expect a lot from their staff, and are also open about their successes – and failures.

Culture Zealots: Our clients know that culture matures and that there is a direct correlation between happy, engaged staff and a better bottom line with lower turnover, fewer sick days, increased morale, and problem solving.

Let’s work together

1:1 Coaching

We love working with individuals to help them understand WHO they are and WHY it matters.  What are your core needs, drives, talents, communication style, stress triggers and solutions? How do YOU show up in the world with your EQ skills?  Clients have frequent “Aha” insights and gain actionable steps that are often life changing.

Team Development

Let’s make your team the best that they can be!  Whether a family owned business, a business partnership, or a large multi-faceted organization that needs to integrate the silos together – we’ll design a program tailored just for you.

Leadership Development & Assimilation

There are four leadership competencies essential to success: authenticity, coaching, insight and innovation. We provide the template and tools for leadership skill development – to further enhance your success, to develop existing leaders, to successfully integrate your leaders or define the key characteristics needed for a new hire or in succession planning.

Workshops, Conferences & Retreats

There is nothing more thrilling than seeing a group transform before your eyes!  Our interactive, hands on programs are ideal for workshops, retreats and seminars.  Structured as a short one-hour session, or let’s make a big impact and go for a half or full day event!

Mission, Vision & Values Integration

When engaged with effectively, Core Values are one of your most powerful return on investment tools to use in hiring, performance reviews, corrective feedback, courageous conversations and recognitions and rewards. Let us help you define and align the behaviors essential for success to positively impact every aspect of your organization, whether large or small.

Need a Speaker?

Keynotes, breakout sessions or perhaps a speaker for your association monthly meeting – our speaking engagements are meant to be just that – engaging!  We get the crowd thinking, talking, communication and walking away with instant tools they can use in their everyday life both at work and at home.

My Story

Nothing in my life has gone in a straight line and probably never will.

So, here’s my story with some of the bigger twists and turns. Why I do what I do, what I love, and why it matters.

First, I’m a lifelong learner and student of leadership – servant-leadership to be specific. As much as I teach and facilitate, I spend equal time in my own learning and development.

I’m passionate about people and the potential to work better together. I’m naturally empathetic – and like all our gifts, it’s a blessing and a curse. However, it serves me well with clients. Because I’ve been there – in the good, the bad, the ugly, and the transformational.

I don’t take my clients anywhere that I haven’t been myself.

I’m a lifelong fan of Swiss psychologist, Carl Jung – and grew up in a family where we used Psychological Type to navigate our (many) family challenges.
