How May I Help You?

I offer a range of services and experiences to help chart your course.


People in positions of responsibility find it extremely valuable to have an experienced, unbiased person as a sounding board. I understand the issues leaders face and am a good listener. Dozens of CEO’s and directors find me to be an intelligent and trustworthy confidant – for themselves and as a resource for other managers.

Building Teams

The success of any venture depends on the quality of collaboration among key people – whether a small family business or a multinational corporation. It starts at the top and is also vital for working groups throughout the organization. I have extensive experience helping teams increase their ability to resolve tough issues effectively, to deal with differences, and to analyze complicated problems. I can help you reach collective commitment to plans so that everyone is truly pulling together.

Creating Culture

The operating principles that determine how people behave are potent invisible levers for high performance. Leaders know the importance of cultural factors like collaboration and commitment. Yet, it takes expertise to build these in an organization. I help you to consciously shape your organization’s character so that it brings out the best in people.
