I’m delighted you stopped by to visit. Throughout my career, I’ve been passionate about leadership. I’ve had the opportunity to explore the secrets of effective leaders, from how they create a compelling vision to how they sweat the small stuff, from how they make tough decisions to how they navigate a difficult conversation, from how they inspire to what makes them perspire.
I’ve had the enormous privilege of working with leaders in over 200 organizations in the public, private, and non-profit sectors.
Along the way, I’ve learned that nearly anyone can be effective in a leadership role, should you choose that path. You’re not “born” a leader, you develop skills that increase your effectiveness.
My mission became to discover exactly what successful leaders do, and share what I learn with others who want to make a difference.
There are several ways I do this:
1. I’m a leadership coach, working one-to-one with executives, managers, supervisors and team leaders.
2. I design and facilitate team-building events for leaders and their staff.
3. I design and conduct leadership academies and workshops.
4. I write practical leadership books, articles, and posts on the Leadership Almanac blog, which I founded in 2008.
I’m based in San Diego, and serve clients throughout the United States and Canada.
My personal passions include photography, playing the keyboard, and bicycling. Lately I’m getting excited about learning I have a bit of skill in the kitchen as well.
