Current: A stand for people being their best selves, whatever that means to them, I see people, really see them, for who they are at their core and invite them, all of them, to come out to play. I believe that our heartlessness is killing us, our companies, and our world. And so, I am bold in my commitment to get people reconnected to their heart, their courage, and their voice… opening a space for creating a different kind of world, and work. In helping clients find what matters most to them, they can rekindle their passion for their work and life. Described as fierce, electrifying, fun. Knowing that laughter lubricates learning – I bring humor and directness to my coaching, asking the tough questions, and naming the unspoken that lies just below the surface.
