Make your Training Event Memorable

Incredible workshops, training and retreats that have attendees excited

“The temptation to lead as a chess master, controlling each move of the organization, must give way to an approach as a gardener, enabling rather than directing. A gardening approach to leadership is anything but passive. The leader acts as an “Eyes-On, Hands-Off” enabler who creates and maintains an ecosystem in which the organization operates.”

General Stan McChrystal

Do You Know How to Problem Solve?

Being able to admit weakness is a hard thing to do for many people. Most leaders want to be more effective than they are but don’t have a clear understanding of how to get there. As a business executive who has consulted with many leading organizations, I know how to generate and implement new business ideas that generate results.

Business Training With A Mentor That Understands

With more than twenty years in leading others at varying executive levels, I know how to teach and mentor. I understand first-hand the value of a professional coach and have been a mentor to countless leaders for more than two decades.

I love that I’ve been able to have a positive impact on many people I’ve led and worked with over the years. More than a dozen are now Fortune 500 C-Level Executives. It is my sincere hope that it’s been a positive and lasting impact.
