I work with organizations in helping them to realize new and exciting futures.  Working with a group of colleagues, I help organizations to discover and assess their full potential.  My specialties lie in…

  • Organization Development
  • Strength-based Approaches to Organization Change
  • Innovation and Design
  • Strategic Planning
  • Employee Learning and Development
  • Diversity and Inclusiveness

By leveraging research-based expertise, organizations can ensure that they are using sound principles.  I have worked with a range of organizations from Fortune 500 companies to small non-profit organizations.

In addition to organizational consulting projects, I also speak to groups and associations about organization development and change, innovation, and workforce diversity issues.
