Life is a journey of learning, even though my 86 year old dad tells me, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” My reply is, “Of course, you can! They just have to be open and willing to try something new or different and follow through with persistence until the behavior is changed.”
That philosophy guides me in developing leaders through training facilitation and one-on-one coaching to improve their presence and bottom-line results in the areas of communication, leadership, and speaking skills. I am passionate about making a difference and helping leaders achieve their goals.
I have 23 years of professional experience as a training facilitator/coach helping people achieve results in business. I was fortunate to discover my passion early in my career after facilitating a six-week new hire training class in the Telecommunications industry. I have also been a leader of a training organization and know what it takes to be successful. I have worked with many Fortune 500 company leaders all over the world to improve their professional presence and bottom line results through communication, leadership, and speaking skills.
Results are driven by the relationships you have with people. Building relationships is key to achieving results, yet many leaders struggle in this area and see it as an “extra”. I genuinely care about people and want to help them achieve results. I consistently get feedback that my clients see that in me. In a recent meeting, a client commented about someone I coached for 12 months, ”I have seen such a noticeable change in confidence and behavior. A real leader has emerged.” I am so proud!
I enjoy exploring the world through travel and also anything related to health and physical fitness.
