My work is powered by 25 years of executive experience, 10,000 hours of “applied” leadership training and Positive Intelligence (PQ) Technology to produce lasting change. In one session you will acquire valuable insights and if you like to continue, my coaching program focuses on a central operating system that will help you achieve PEAK PERFORMANCE, PEACE OF MIND/WELLNESS & HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS.

As a former President/CEO, I have a proven track record of achieving best in class results in all my leadership roles. What is my secret sauce? Investing in and managing my own and my team's positivity levels. Establishing a "growth mindset practice" an organizational habit. Creating a “Coaching Culture”...in short, mastering the soft skills that drive the hard numbers.

From a business standpoint my core competency is in Sales, Marketing and Strategy even though, I have for the last 15 years, been responsible for all functional areas. I have had experience in Public/Corporate as well as Private/Entrepreneurial organizations. The most fulfilling aspect of my leadership roles in all the years was the coaching and development of my executive teams and employees.
