Areas of Focus & Expertise

Leadership Development

The old axiom "you manage things and lead people" still holds true. Given today's business environment you could say it's more important than ever. Why is leadership so hard to define for many people? Perhaps because management is a science and leadership is an art.

Developing leaders is vital to any organization. How deep is your bench? We help clients identify future leaders and train and coach them to achieve results through others. We also support them on their leadership journey through self-awareness, empathy and active listening.

One of the tools we use is the Clifton Strengths Assessment (formerly the Clifton StrengthsFinder) based on the book Strengths-Based Leadership by Tom Rath and Barry Conchie.

"What would happen if we studied what was right with people versus what's wrong with people?" -Don Clifton

  Building a High      Performance Team

Even with a great leader and a well-designed game plan, you can't win consistently without a high performing team. I help clients achieve greater alignment, expanded capacity, enhanced performance, effective communication, stronger relationships, and maximized synergy.

Using a combination of Team LearnShops and coaching I help your team experience breakthroughs. It begins with building trust – a primary issue on dysfunctional teams.

The top performing organizations have long embraced a Total Quality Management philosophy and adopted Continuous Quality Improvement processes and other tools. These are proven to enhance productivity, customer satisfaction, and profitability. Our easy-to-understand processes help organizations and teams of all sizes to identify problems and seize on opportunities.

Executive Coaching

I work with business executives and entrepreneurs on developing leadership skills, habits, and behaviors that enable them to lead with the highest degree of influence and realize maximum performance.  Whether you’re a CEO, VP, or non-profit Executive Director, my coaching services lead to extraordinary outcomes.

Achieve better results, grow your company faster and maximize your impact as a leader. I provided one-on-one sessions to help you clarify the issues that hold you back and identify the opportunities that will propel you forward.


An executive coach is a qualified professional that works with individuals – usually business owners or executives, (but often high-potential employees) – to help them gain self-awareness, clarify goals, achieve their development objectives, and unlock their potential. We ask questions to help our clients clarify and solve their own problems.


My Services:

  • Create a 60-day plan or provide a 360-degree review

  • Tactics on navigating an organization's politics and processes

  • Managing work and life priorities

  • Developing a strategy to grow your leadership presence

  • Accelerating momentum in your current role

  • Clarifying goals and pinpointing how to achieve them

Behavioral Assessments

Your Partner in Organizational Performance & Talent Management

I use the Predictive Index Behavioral Assessment, an untimed, free-choice, stimulus-response tool that is far more than a personality test. For more than 60 years, thousands of businesses around the globe have used this EFPA-certified behavioral assessment to understand the personality traits that make their employees and candidates tick. I find it very helpful when assisting clients with hiring to ID candidates who are hardwired to be a great fit, to design teams that perform like magic, and to manage their employees in a way that drives them to perform at the top of their game.


The PI Behavioral Assessment Measures:

Dominance - The drive to exert influence on people or events.

Extraversion - The drive for social interaction with other people.

Patience - The drive to have consistency and stability.

Formality - The drive to conform to rules and structure.


These four key factors - or key behavioral drives -provide a simple framework for understanding your employees’ and candidates’ workplace behaviors.


Organizational Health

Culture by Design

Winning cultures are built by design not by default. An organization's culture is defined by its values and rules, both written and unwritten.

Creating a great culture takes lots of patience and persistence. You must build it around your core purpose and know that Purpose is the secret weapon in your business and that more than making money people want to make a difference and do something that has meaning.

Focusing on organizational health is just as important as focusing on the traditional drivers of business performance. Organizational health is about adapting to the present and shaping the future faster and better than the competition. Healthy organizations don’t merely learn to adjust themselves to their current context or to challenges that lie just ahead; they create a capacity to learn and keep changing over time. This has never been more important for organizations and it is where the ultimate competitive advantage lies.

Strategic Planning

Many business owners spend all their time working in their business and not enough time working on their business.

Strategic planning isn't just for Fortune 500 companies. Even small businesses and non-profits can benefit from  strategic planning facilitated by a subject matter expert. We can help you develop vision and mission statements, set goals, and identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. 

Effective strategic planning involves stepping back from your day-to-day operations and asking where your business is headed and what its priorities should be.

Here are the top  benefits of strategic planning:

  • Allows organizations to be proactive rather than reactive

  • Establishes a sense of direction and energizes your people

  • Increases operational efficiency

  • Helps to increase market share and profitability

  • Can make a business more durable

  • Gets you to consider and plan for your exit strategy

If you don't have a road map and a plan, how do you know where you're going and how you are going to get there?
