I help leaders facing challenges
Executive coaching for leaders helps improve conditions that you face in the world of work and life. Through confidential conversations, we work together to recognize blind your spots. These are blind spots that hold you back. They can lead to poor relationships, decision-making, and organizational culture.
I synthesize multi-disciplinary research in leadership, adult development, psychology, personality, lived-experience, and adult education. And I make it accessible to leaders who support better workplaces, organizations and society.
