I can help you develop customized solutions to increase your impact and organizational effectiveness while seeking to address the underlying causes of complex and sometimes chronic concerns. My approach looks uniquely at issues and addresses the distinctive causes that are contributing to a specific concern, not just the symptoms or signs.

Coaching, mentoring and advising are action-oriented interventions to address professional, leadership, management, and/or other career needs. All are distinguished by a focus on accountability and follow-through to work with you or your staff to elicit solutions and strategies, as well as to nurture the skills and resources that you already possess.

  • As a coach, I am able to partner with you or your staff in a short-term, thought-provoking and creative process that will seek to inspire you to improve your professional potential and performance. This can be structured to help establish and meet goals, understand and resolve challenges, and focus on growth. I may not have all the answers but I bring an outside-in and unemotional perspective. I will work with you on a process of discovery and skill development, asking questions and posing challenges to lead you to your desired achievements.

  • As a mentor, I work with you or your staff to create a longer-term professional relationship where the benefit will ultimately be derived from a deeper engagement than is common in most short-term approaches such as coaching or advising. I want to see you become more successful and am willing to spend the time you need with you. Your agenda and goals will change over time. In this process, you will connect with a leader who understands the value of investing in your work and who will help you develop answers and solutions to your questions and goals.

  • As an advisor, I serve as a “sharpshooter” with a focus on a specific area of expertise to help you or your staff address a direct question or concern. This is a short-term undertaking and usually seeks to rapidly address or solve an urgent problem.
