I bring to bear a unique set of skills in my ability to facilitate the development of organizational cultures to achieve and maintain profitability, productivity, innovation, and competitiveness.
With strategic training in intelligence analysis, I have developed keen observational skills for the patterns within organizations that can lead to their success or failure. I have put these skills to use many times with remarkable results in identifying and helping to solve sometimes hidden issues that are holding organizations back from achieving long-term success.
My key strengths are in the areas of organizational values, behavior, team building, and mindfulness, all of which are complementary in order to create cultures of high performance.
With a decade of personal practice in mindfulness and meditation and as a trained facilitator, I can provide expert coaching and guided practice in skills that help individuals to coexist with the change, complexity, and ambiguity that are so commonplace in startups and small businesses.
