I really love working with people in management positions, probably because I’ve been in management for the better part of 17 years. I’m just in awe of the tremendous impact a great leader can have on those he or she leads, and I’m also aware of the devastating impact that poor leadership can have on the employees and a company as a whole. Between you and I, I prefer the former.

Regarding my own management experience, I’ll be brutally honest: early in my career, I was terrible. Seriously. I could have been a poster child for how not to manage. I was awful… until I wasn’t.  I made a conscious decision to become a rockstar leader, and I completely immersed myself in learning how to lead others effectively. For most of my career, I’ve been able to do just that. I’ve been fortunate to win awards and the teams I have led have been recognized as being among the best in their respective industries.

Whether my client is an individual or a team, whether I’m conducting a management training or coaching, my approach is fairly consistent: Inspire, motivate, listen, teach, challenge, hold accountable, add a ridiculous amount of value, and celebrate victories. It’s how I help people turn their potential into performance.
