I am a professionally certified Leadership Coach, Inspirational Speaker, Best Selling Author, Adjunct Professor and Podcast Host. I am also CEO and Founder of my own coaching and consulting practice.  I am dedicated to helping leaders live up to their potential by challenging their thinking and providing insightful perspectives to help them get out of their own way.

I have a passion and talent for helping leaders discover what truly drives their leadership impact and removing what gets in the way of you being able to lead with influence and confidence! I enjoy journeying with my clients as they experience the "process" of self-discovery.

Everything I do is about helping leaders, just like you, overcome the things that get in the way of achieving results. From my podcast and videos, books, blogs, workshops and speaking engagements, it is all about empowering you to find and embrace that unique leadership gift that will help you leave a legacy that will transcend your lifetime.
