How I work with people & teams
Business is all about relationships. Unless we are putting people and relationships before all else, the business will suffer.
The work I do is client-led. I always begin with an assessment of goals and challenges followed by team interviews and one-on-one coaching sessions. I piece together underlying themes, drivers, blind spots and guide leadership in a holistic people strategy.
I HELP INDIVIDUALS, TEAMS, AND COMPANIES CLARIFY WHO THEY ARE AND HOW THEY SERVE.
With some clients, I start with the fundamentals. Clarifying who you are and how you serve is critical to developing your vision, mission, purpose, and values (VMPV). We then assess how your day-to-day operations and decisions align with your VMPV.
GROWTH REQUIRES A WILLINGNESS TO CHANGE AND MOVE FORWARD
As all humans, we tend to disengage from our growth edge because we are all biologically created to seek comfort and avoid stress. This is especially true for people moving from a contributor to a management or leadership role. It's hard to leave behind what we're good at and forge into the temporary zone of incompetence as we grow. This is where humble leadership is the true elixir - for both the leader and the led. Often the best thing a leader can do is listen.
EMANCIPATION OF THE EGO
The ego is formidable and will pull every trick in the book to stay in charge and to keep its mistakes in the shadows. This is a vicious cycle we can break if we are willing.

THE JOURNEY TO JOY TAKES US THROUGH THE SHATTERED EGO
AND INTO OUR MORE EXPANSIVE WHOLENESS.
More than ever, people are seeking greater meaning in their work. Since our work accounts for at least a third of our waking lives, many want that time to count. Furthermore, we desire more than a monetary return on our time investment. The currency earned from working more intentionally derives a compounding effect that positively cascades into all areas of our life.
I aim to help my clients create and live by their mission, vision, values, and purpose. Conscious capitalism requires conscious leadership.
Doing the work to understand who you are and how you serve requires focused reflection. I create the space for entrepreneurs and small business owners to not only root into their unique value proposition but live by and operate their businesses from a more purposeful and powerful place.
Being clear on who you are and why you're doing what you do is fundamental in creating an online presence, developing a team, and running a business. I help business owners set up practical tools and practices to keep them aligned with their values, principles, and purpose as they grow, especially when times get tough.
POWER VS. FORCE
True power is an attractor - an extraordinary expander. Force creates counterforce – it keeps us on the exhausting hamster wheel. I work with clients to do the internal work so that the external work - their website, team dynamics, brand strategy, etc. comes easily. Often people want to make external changes before doing the internal reflection. They think the answers, the solutions, and the strategy lie "out there" - in changing their team, and diversifying revenue streams. marketing their service, building a marketing funnel, etc. But, the truth is that we attract what we are, so we must first and foremost look at the source of our attractor field.
