Everything I do comes from what I believe in: Lives worth living, leaders worth followings, and teams/organizations worth being a part of, all of which create communities and a world worth living in.
I believe my job as a coach, consultant, trainer, facilitator, speaker is to help people and teams think, feel, and believe differently so they can do differently to increase their impact on the mission and the world.
A few key beliefs my clients find useful in our work together:
- You can’t change what you can’t see
- You can’t change what you’re not willing to talk about and explore
- The primary tool of leadership is conversation, so if you want different results, you need a different conversation
- We all have an inner operating system, and upgrading that system to meet the demands of today and the coming years is the leader’s opportunity and responsibility.
- Leadership is a deep journey to the self in service of lifting others up. If you don’t find joy and satisfaction in elevating the people on your team, you have no business being a leader.
- The job of a leader is not to have all the answers; it’s to be a shepherd for a great group of people who have great answers to manifest more of the mission and the impact you want to have in the world.
