I believe that working-people deserve exceptional leaders. That’s my mission, one leader at a time. Most organizations are over-managed and under-led. And everyone deserves better than that.
Inspired by spending the last 20 years developing leaders, I’ve taken it to the next level and completed a rigorous one-year coaching certification program. From there, I’ve built a Leadership Coaching and Consulting business.
Through coaching, I’ve gained more insight into my values and purpose. Now, I guide my clients to do the same-define their own values and purpose, then make the decisions and choices necessary to bring out the absolute best of who they are.
I had Stage III Cancer. Honestly, it sucked and I suffered. It was a slow, agonizing smack-in-the-face, through which I discovered this fundamental truth- In serving others, I was not only filled up, I found tremendous joy. Even during the worst of the suffering. That’s my WHY. I love it! It’s not work to me.
I spent 30 years as a leadership professional in the Gas and Electric T&D Industry. As a life long learner, Servant Leadership and Coaching are two of my favorite topics. An avid cyclist, husband, father, friend, and a mentor to many, I am a Stage 3 Cancer (Melanoma) Survivor. Currently, Iam a board member for Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz.
