your life strategy coach

“I believe to have an real impact in work and life, you have to bring 100% of yourself to the table.”


Leader Insight

Everything you need to lead is already inside you. The role you have now is your open door to opportunity. What will you do with it?

The insight you gain through self-assessment gives you a lends that helps you see how others see you, and understand yourself better so you can design a strategy to align your life and leadership.

I have many tricks in my toolbox, including a three-science self assessment and a 360 degree assessment to get feedback from your team that will take the blinders off and help you lead from a place of authenticity and truth.

Manager Coaching

Many coaches like to specialize in leaders at the executive level, but I like to work where the work really happens. Leaders in the middle of the organization are the ones whose influence makes or breaks the culture and the bottom line.

How do you motivate your employees? That starts with getting the right people in the right seats. Once you have them, how do you get your team to take responsibility for the deliverables on your shoulders?

Know this, all you need to be a great leader is already inside you. It’s my job to help you find your voice, executive presence and your intuition… Are you ready to kick glass?

Don’t just take my word for it.

Here’s what our customers have to say.
