How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

Everyone has a blind spot (or two). Your greatest strength can also be a weakness. Success can cover up weaknesses. I help executives change behaviors in ways that lead to greater business success and happier lives. Unless there is measurable improvement, my coaching is free.
