I believe that leadership can come from anywhere in an organization.
As a leadership advisor, educator, and facilitator, I work with leaders at all levels to build ethical and joyful workplaces, where all members find meaning and purpose.
The capacity to reflect on oneself and one’s context is a basic building block for organizational learning and transformation.
My consultancy focuses on:
Building self-awareness and systems awareness (how different parts of the system impact each other and the individual).
I bring a deep understanding of human behavior, informed by 30 years of facilitating change in individuals, groups, and organizations. A life-long learner, I began my career as a clinical social worker, then expanded into organizational development consulting, and then teaching.
Recently, I have begun to incorporate Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction into my consulting work. What all these approaches share is a focus on self-reflection and awareness as the key to change. I design and facilitate processes that help individuals, groups/teams, and organizations:
Discover and develop their shared vision and purpose
Assess and build upon their strengths
Work productively with differences and conflict
Surface and examine dysfunctional assumptions and covert dynamics
Share responsibility for addressing adaptive challenges and developing sustainable solutions
Engage meaningfully with each other and the larger community
I am affiliated with a number of professional networks from which I can invite partners for larger scale projects.
Who I serve
I work with public, not-for-profit, and corporate organizations.
