Relationship Excellence for Thriving Organizations

Business leadership comes down to big decisions between people. I help my clients do their very best thinking about how to lead. I help senior executives transform their organizations using unique tools derived from the science of relationship systems. They become change agents who build exceptional teams and negotiate critical relationships with great skill. 

We build rapport by talking about what matters most, including family leadership challenges. I become a trusted advisor through expert listening mixed with a knack for testing people - their courage, tenacity and emotional maturity. 

My experience and theoretical background are particularly suited to helping clients build exceptional teams and overcome high-stakes relationship challenges. 

Life is a sacred adventure with unbounded possibilities. It is my privilege - and responsibility - to help clients unfold their full potential as leaders, and become stronger forces for progress in the world.
