I help people and teams thrive.
It’s lonely at the top. It’s hard to get good feedback, and high-status people are often regarded as mythologies rather than as human. Be seen for who you are, get the relationships and impact that you want, and learn to handle difficult and nuanced conversations consistently well.
I get teams to trust each other, work together better, and tackle hard conversations. I mediate conflicts; I increase emotional intelligence and psychological safety; I can sit in on board meetings and call out then clear up emotional dynamics as they unfold. It's bespoke organizational health.
I’m good. If you’ve found me, you were referred here. I could write copy to ramp you up with warm and fuzzy or exciting terms about empowerment and personal transformation. If you’re like me, that will come across as fluff over substance.
I also won’t insist on what your experience is. Some coaches declare what’s happening for a client—how they’re hiding or feeling, etc. This flexes “subjective validation,” a cognitive bias in which the listener is likely to agree, even when the statement is incorrect or a red herring partial truth. In addition to being ethically dodgy and a time sink, it inhibits the client’s skill development.
I will call you out when you need it and empathize so you know I get you.
You'll be at ease with and have a much greater sense of self, you'll have far richer relationships that you want, and your life will be deeply values aligned. You'll also have more access to joy—because when we un-numb the things we do not want to feel, we feel our positive feelings with greater depth and vibrance.
