Excellence in Leadership and Communication


I coach because I’m passionate about helping professionals be successful. It’s really that simple. So whether you’re leading a company of 30,000, putting together a project team of 30 associates, giving a media interview or launching your IPO, I can help you to show up authentically and effectively.

With 17 years of corporate experience to draw from, I’m there as a mirror, reflecting back to you your presence in the workplace, and as a guide—offering insights, advice, honest feedback, encouragement, and, when necessary, the push you need to get you out of your comfort zone.

My clients will tell you my approach to coaching is definitely not warm and fuzzy, and it’s not magic, either. I get results because of two things: 1) I use behaviorally-based, experiential techniques; performance exercises; role-playing scenarios and video-taped critiques which significantly improve communication and leadership effectiveness, and 2) because my clients are 100% committed to changing their behavior. Every coaching engagement is customized to ensure that it’s the right fit for the individual client, the company culture, and the specific business objectives being addressed. And, knowing how busy you are, coaching is fit in around your schedule so that you can deal with day-to-day issues while still achieving your coaching goals.

All that I require (aside from what’s laid out in my contract) is that you be totally committed to creating a positive change in the way you communicate and lead. The process requires self-awareness, discipline, openness to feedback and the ability to take risks. If you can’t commit to this, then unfortunately we can’t work together because it would be a colossal waste of money and time. If you’re being dragged into this process by your boss or HR, please just “fuggedaboutit,” as they say in NYC. People can and do change, but it takes a lot of hard work and courage. And helping hard working, courageous folks achieve a greater level of happiness and success is what I do.
