THE CONSULTING PRACTICE

1/5
“Results are obtained by exploiting opportunities not by solving problems.”

Peter Drucker

Change is the operating system. Your relationship to it - individually, organizationally, operationally, institutionally, and all other "ly" words - is a measure of your (and your company or project's) ability to pivot well and seize opportunity that is all around you. Leveraging and actually exploiting change as a means of accessing, noticing, and engaging new opportunities is one of the most fundamental elements of leading. The nexus of this investment - your resilience and responsiveness - is what puts you, your message, work, project, and organization in the perpetual zone of insight and opportunity. We use qualitative methods to guide the processes.

THE COACHING PRACTICE

1/3
“Our deepest fear is 
that we are powerful beyond measure.”

Marianne Williamson

Absolutely everyone's voice and essence is specifically patterned and coded with their own DNA. As we play the variety of roles we play in life, sometimes the external expectations can pull us away from our core depleting us and distilling our strengths. When we move too far away from that center, the implications at work, within our familes, and within our communities can be destructive. Working to move into your center and to operate from your essence enables you to lead, relate, communicate, and engage from a far more powerful place.

THE FACILITATION PRACTICE

1/5
"If we regard truth as emerging from a complex process of mutual inquiry, the [classroom] will look like a resourceful and interdepent community."

Parker Palmer

Culture and teams are the lifeblood of any company, and they are constantly evolving and emerging. What makes an inspired team and company is the accumulated effort of the people involved in its creation. If the basis of a company's culture doesn’t include courage, trust, intimacy and authenticity, culture doesn’t translate and leaves any business exposed to risk. The experience people have of a business - internally and externally - is representative of the personalities and contributions of the people who work for it. And that’s actually the point. Any business should inspire the people it touches - inside and out - through product, services, and engagement.

 

I facilitate teams to identify, live, and breathe the culture of the company they work for. In doing so, groups come together to think big picture, get at the stuff that is challenging, focus on vision and value, and make key decisions around day-to-day tasks and topics that can erode culture. 

 

Sometimes, we're integrating the team development/process into the ongoing consulting and coaching work. Other times, teams are getting together twice, three times or quarterly. The structure and expectation of doing this helps everyone (re-)connect, talk about the things that get lost in the pace of the day-to-day, and serves to protect the company's brand and culture. It also keeps a business' owner/leadership dialed in in a more intentional way which benefits everyone.

THE TRAINING PRACTICE

1/5
“The teacher and the taught together create the teaching.”

Eastern Proverb

More than likely, you are tasked to lead, facilitate, communicate, envision, and inspire in some capacity in whichever professional or personal role you play. To support, strengthen, and deepen those skills and capabilities, I lead workshops, trainings, and retreats to hone and develop a deepening capacity in self-awareness, self-actualization, professional and personal development, adaptive skill building, and navigating change. The energy and experience of the group contributes to a dynamic and experiential learning environment.
