The most important cultural phenomenon any organization can foster is employee satisfaction.


A satisfied and engaged employee will be a better service provider to their direct reports, supervisors, and most importantly, the customers. Retaining quality employees builds loyalty and is financially responsible compared to having a revolving door of employees being hired and quitting in rapid succession. Such turnover is 100% preventable if leadership is willing to take action. High employee satisfaction is achieved through quality supervision achieved through coaching, training, and practice.

Organizations seeking a hands-on approach to 360 evaluations will benefit from my experience. Even without a full evaluation, consultations with portions of the organization can also be beneficial to understanding the culture. I help organizations and individuals get to the core of the matter they are facing. It is not uncommon that the issue is different than the concern. But the only way to find out is through honest, data-driven examination. For organizations and individuals who are ready to dig deep to explore, I am ready to assist.

The Story:

I'm a straight-shooter who uses tact and honesty to help individual professionals, groups, and organizations look at a situation with clarity and make a decision through exploration of possible outcomes. Bringing many years of experience in leadership coaching, recruitment, hiring, training, management, supervision, professional development, disciplinary responses and termination, I will help organizations set the foundation for continuous improvement.
