I believe that everyone is born with a purpose, with gifts and talents. My desire for all people is that they would know, understand and live at their highest potential. I am most passionate about working with leaders, because leaders are a gateway to elevate others OR are a lid to their potential. I love supporting leaders to be the best leaders they can be because when they are skillful and lead well, they lift others up and empower their greatest gifts and potential. Leaders become MULTIPLIERS they pass on the vision, energy and mindset that is critical to help others to be successful and to find deep and meaningful fulfillment in their greatest life work.
I am inspired by things that make a difference … humanity growing, learning and improving. Doing things that change lives and make them better. I am inspired by great leadership and having the opportunity to lead something that matters. I love to find solutions to challenges, create action plans and see them executed well. I love working when work means supporting leaders and organizations to perform at their highest potential. I am inspired by people who have grit, drive, determination, have a vision and desire to be their best. I am curious to learn about personal growth and development, how people and our brains work, and how we can maximize our time, energies and efforts. Outside of this, I am inspired by nature – the intricacy of flowers and trees.. I am inspired by animals and their amazingness.
