When academic theory meets practical advice, achieving incredible things becomes possible.



In all of my work, I try to bring an insightful and warm approach with highly interactive learning methods in order to forge common goals and focus our attention on outcomes.  I was honored to serve as a university faculty member for twenty years and now aspire to help leaders apply the most current research findings to enhance their daily work.
