I have been inspiring and teaching audiences all over the world for over 30 years as a leader, teacher, coach, author, and spiritual adviser. My specialty is guiding people to the strongest, most authentic expression of themselves. Why do I do this? Because I believe that a person’s greatest power and effectiveness come from living more and more in alignment with their authentic self.
When you try to be someone or something else than who you truly are, you lose energy and effectiveness. When you choose to simply go with the flow and let yourself be whatever you are at the moment, caving to whatever pressure you’re getting from others around you–choosing to not worry about discovering your true identity–you lose energy and effectiveness.
Knowing who you really are and how you’re wired is the the only way to live an authentic life. And when you do, that’s when you have real power.
So I emphasize strengths engagement—helping leaders, teams, organizations, and individuals discover, explore, and leverage what they’re innately good at in a way that results in radically higher levels of energy, engagement, productivity, and profitability. My earned doctorate is in the area of personal and organizational effectiveness.
I have been invited to speak, coach, and consult with organizations like the American Physical Therapy Association’s national conference, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Fitbit, American Express, Amazon, Golden Gate University, Yes To (a global leader in natural beauty products), Bay Area Association of International Coaches Federation, Pacific Inpatient Medical Group, Acrobat Staffing; and numerous nonprofits around the world such as faith-based communities and educational organizations.
I love writing and am a published author of two books: A Touch of Heaven, how the practice of rituals expands transformational living, and Living Your Best Life, a thirty day guide to personal growth and development that builds on discovering and leveraging the authentic You. I blog regularly about living life with strength, depth, authenticity, and intention.
