I am most passionate about finding solutions that empower individuals and teams to become more self-aware and energized. And, help people discover and leverage their innate strengths. When someone lights up and realizes what energizes them and they take accountability to do more of that in their work and life, it brings me great joy and satisfaction. Just think, if more people in the world are able to tap into their internal drivers and use them while at work and in their life, we will have more happier people and energized workplaces...how awesome would that be?!

Often, our pursuit of work is so all-encompassing, that we don’t recognize the role we play in helping an organization achieve its mission. An organization’s culture, structure or policies, can leave us feeling drained, overlooked, or undeserving of respect. I am passionate about removing those barriers and replacing them with attitudes, behaviors and policies that validate and support ALL of us. My work is to create environments where people are valued, feel heard and cultivate an experience where the workforce thrives to deliver their best.
My passion in the world is helping people enjoy the ride. I get excited when I see someone who is uplifted and engaged, when their inner spirit is touched and they are connected.

I love enjoying life and helping others to enjoy theirs. We all deserve a great ride!

My passion in the world of work is to create safe spaces where individuals can access difficult areas in order to gain useful insights for personal development and growth. Our workplaces are replete with conditions that threaten the very core of who we are. Our reactions to those conditions are protective in nature and often place us at odds with each other. The more we know ourselves, the better we can predict our reactions and those of others. My passion is to create the right conditions for others to become insightful about themselves.
My passion in the world at large is to find a way to accept and embrace my path by being grateful rather than forcing my way through life resisting inevitable change. I am passionate about discovering how gratitude continuously shapes my life, creates a more optimistic me, and enhances my relationships with others.

For more than 35 years, through teaching, research and consulting I have committed my life to the transformation of organizations and communities into places where people reach their fullest leadership potential and achieve shared goals. My love for academic rigor and practical application emerge from having served on the faculty and staff of both the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education and Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College Executive Education Programs, as well as years of on-the-ground experience partnering with leaders in workplaces and communities in almost every sector throughout the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, Central America and Europe.
My passion is to create a world that works by developing leadership capacity and giving voice to the power of inclusion; whether this is the world of work, the world of our communities or the world at large. Organizational life today, by its very nature, pulls us outside of ourselves into the world of goals, strategy, tasks and relationships leaving little time for introspection. This is especially true today in a climate where change is unrelenting and leaders often find themselves compelled to inspire high performance against tremendous odds. Paradoxically, because leadership is the use of self to influence outcomes—hopefully for the better—we must continually journey inward to clarify our vision and values, shore up our courage, and integrate the lessons of our life experiences if we want to be effective in getting diverse groups of people to achieve extraordinary results. My approach to leadership development is to combine the effective use self, with skill development and practical solutions applied to real-time work problems.
