My Background and Approach
I draw on and share 36 years of leadership, mentoring and coaching, from West Point through McKinsey & Company, Google, the UK Cabinet Office and a decade of social entrepreneurship. My professional life has been consistently working with and giving guidance to some of the top talent in the world.
My work bridges traditional divides to help you bring your whole self to your career decision:
Structure and Creativity – the discipline of engineering decision making along with invitations and exercises to access your full range of options and opportunities.
Head and Heart – factual investigation and rational evaluation plus access to the wisdom of emotion and sensation.
Liberation and Accountability – revealing long-standing assumptions that limit your view of yourself while also helping you take responsibility for the stories and concepts that shape your life.
Purpose and Pragmatism – identifying and honoring your authentic aims, then creating the version of yourself to pursue these aims. All with a firm grounding in your current reality and a recognition of what change requires.
