Leaders create the future


Discuss your goals. Interview stakeholders. Agree on objectives and design. 


Create a high-trust space to discuss what is winning and what it will take to win. Assure accountability.

Follow Through

Maintain momentum through communication plan, leadership dashboard, and coaching.

The challenge leaders face is that two stories are competing for the future: the existing & the new. 

Leaders decide which story wins

How they win

I help leaders win 

I help leadership teams define winning, build a shared strategy, and work more effectively together.


I design and facilitate high-impact retreats and discussions where leadership teams can discover, debate, decide, and commit.

I support strategy, change, mergers & acquistions, decision making, team effectiveness, and employee engagement.

About me

I help leadership teams align and commit. I bring deep experience in strategy, change, leadership, and communication gained from working with Fortune 500 leaders in 21 countries. I have facilitated boards, C-suites, divisions and departments, and sales teams ranging from 5 to 200 people and supported mergers and acquisitions.

My approach is conversational and pragmatic. I believe leaders are not in their job because they have all the answers. They are in their jobs to find answers. I help them find answers faster.

Leaders create the future they make time for
