I help leaders create great people-centered work & place experiences.
Over my three-plus decades serving in corporate and industry leadership roles, I’ve learned that I am at my best when I am helping others to do their best work. Today, I do this mostly through thought-leadership; strategic advising; leadership & executive coaching; learning facilitation; and consulting. I possess a healthy dose of EQ, while also having a strong business acumen and the ability to speak CFO, CIO and CHRO, among others. A common theme across my portfolio of work is a focus on uncovering and leveraging the strengths inherent in the individuals, teams, and organizations I work with, serve and support.
Select Clients: COO, Early Stage Tech (45 yrs); CEO, Boutique Consulting firm (50 yrs); Project Manager, Fortune 500 Tech (40 yrs); SVP, Top Tier Real Estate Services (35 yrs); Regional Leader, Fortune 500 Tech (45 yrs); Director, Fortune 500 Tech (40 yrs).
I have embraced leadership and executive coaching as part of my management and leadership approach for the better part of a decade. As a corporate executive, I discovered coaching to be something I truly enjoyed as demand for my ‘services’ began to include peers and others in increasing numbers. In 2020, I decided to seek industry certification and to launch my formal coaching practice. Today, individual and team coaching accounts for upwards of 25% of my work.
I coach from a place of curiosity and active inquiry, and not from a place of advice-giving or subject matter expertise; that is what separates my coaching work from my advisory and consulting work.
My typical client is a successful professional who has a strong interest in becoming a next-level leader, and/or who needs help getting un-stuck. And, most importantly, is one who comes to coaching willingly.
My coaching unfolds through a disciplined focus on unlocking what is already inherently in my clients, whether that be strengths, direction, answers and so on. My clients set the destination; I help with the navigation. And while I do focus on coaching the whole person, I do not offer life-coaching; my intent is to help my clients be their best professional selves.
As a strategic advisor, I tend to work with earlier-stage companies who are making an impact in and around the employee experience and the workplace. I currently sit on the advisory boards of:
As a consultant, I work with enterprises of all shapes and sizes in their quest to create human-centric workplaces (in the broadest sense of the word ‘workplaces’). I have a particular focus on helping shape the post-pandemic workplace, less from a physical perspective and more from an experiential one.
