Our Approach

Here’s the thing, there is NO MAGIC PILL.  Fixing broken things is work, even when they’re just a little broken. It’s actually, even more, work than you’re doing now. And yet, my clients hang in, they stick it out. They do it because it’s more fruitful, more fun, and more gratifying. They do it because they get results.

That’s it. They see effective, positive change. (Check out my testimonials for affirmation.) Oh, wait… It is highly likely this “really hard time” you put in with us is going to be a lot shorter and faster than what you’ve been recently enduring.

Isn’t that why you’re here right now? Because you miss the feeling of kicking behind and taking names? Feels good, right? Want some more of that? Then, thank goodness you’re here.

Our aim is to get you where you want to go efficiently and with a bit of fun. Some of you, right now, are thinking, “Ok, that’s cool, but can you deliver?” But, many of you, if you’re willing to be honest, are actually saying to yourself, “How can you get me where I don’t know I want? Of course, I want success but don’t ask me to define that. It doesn’t always feel clear.”

It amazes me the assumption that we’re all supposed to know where we want to go when we have offered our children, our students, or our teams virtually no practice, at considering the question out loud! Don’t quietly suffer if you’re not sure what “there” looks like. YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

This is what great leaders know that you possibly don’t… yet!

They know, very clearly where they’re aiming to go.

This is why having a coach, a trainer, a spotter, mentor, guidance counselor and all the variations of support team members whose job it is to support your clarity is so freakin’ valuable, or invaluable, as the case may be.

The trend is changing and in some circles, it’s getting pretty cool to do what highly successful individuals have been doing for centuries – having coaches and teams to talk to about their hopes and fears and to gain clarity on them through that process. Ready for clarity? Ready to be courageous? Ready to grow?

Our Qualifications

I bank more CCE hours per year than any coach, trainer, consultant, or advisor I know… at about 100. I have trained with Cynthia Lloyd Darst,  Andrew Neitlich and (2016) Judith Glazier before her passing, where I a became a C-IQ Practitioner. I attend the World Business and Executive Coach Summit annually and have since its inauguration in 2010. Every year I choose at least one live event in my field to attend.
I communicate under the aegis of a Learning Process Expert. In other words, I’ve gone to a lot of trouble to learn why and how our minds do what they do and to apply this science to our interactions and my requests of you. All of our programs and training are designed from this perspective as well. What sets us apart from other business advisory firms is my life-long learning philosophy, which I impose on my team; ever and again we bring fresh ideas, fresh tools and the newest science to our work.
My serial entrepreneurial affliction brings a solid business background to our conversations. Oh, and my college education was in Accounting and I’ve found that very handy over the years.
  As you can see you’ll get to know me pretty easily floating around these pages especially if you subscribe to my blogs, and/or watch the various videos on our site. I have been growing somebody’s business (starting with and including many of my own) since I can remember. Being at the very tail end of the boomer era I have a ridiculous work ethic. Being me, I grew up with the idea that my job was to improve myself – no matter. This has made me something of a pain in the rear for nearly every boss I’ve ever had. Jump one hurdle, looking for the next. I do not advocate you attempt to maintain this pace alone. I can tell you from experience it does not work. Something has to give and it’s usually you… until you learn to use your team.  
   
  I shoot from the hip. Some would say I can be very direct. I was once given the nickname sandpaper. If you are looking for life coaching or, personal affirmation, I am not the advisor for you. That said, I’ve also been accused of being a little “woo-woo”. I believe we are more than we see, that responsibility is empowerment and that the mind, body, and spirit are deeply connected. I show up with great compassion and care for my clients; a deep understanding of the science behind how the mind works, and I push you. If you are ready to build yourself as a leader and your business as a legend you are in the right place.  
 
  I also work with teams. I like working with teams. They’re fun and I’m better at working with them than I am one-on-one… though some of my clients would argue that.  
   
  I have fun working with teams because I am able to help them create dynamic change within and without. This was the impetus behind our company program TEAMS. It was two years in principle development and I am so pleased to say that it is ever evolving and effective as heck!
