Having 14 years of experience working in startups and a decade of experience working within the US Intelligence Community as an intelligence analyst, I bring to bear a unique set of skills in my ability to facilitate the development of organizational cultures to achieve and maintain profitability, productivity, innovation, and competitiveness.
With strategic training in intelligence analysis, and with experience as a leader within the US Intelligence Community and multiple startup organizations, I have developed keen observational skills for the patterns within organizations that can lead to their success or failure. I have put these skills to use many times with phenomenal results in identifying and helping to solve sometimes hidden issues that are holding organizations back from achieving long-term success.
My key strengths are in the areas of organizational values, behavior, team building, and mindfulness, all of which are complementary in order to create cultures of high performance.
With a decade of personal practice in mindfulness and meditation and as a trained facilitator, I can provide expert coaching and guided practice in skills that help individuals to coexist with the change, complexity, and ambiguity that are so commonplace in startups and small businesses.
As a Certified Practitioner of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®), I am an expert in providing the MBTI® inventory and designing and implementing working-group and team-building exercises in order to maximize the value of the tool to improve personal and interpersonal skills that lead to better communication and more productive work.
As a Certified Consultant for Cultural Transformation Tools® (CTT®), I am proficient in using the most powerful, valid, and reliable tools available for identifying organizational values and developing a strategic plan based upon business needs in order to facilitate the creation of a workplace culture that prevents low morale, cynicism, disengagement, and attrition from occurring.
With two decades of experience as a member and leader of teams and as an Authorized Partner of The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™, I bring rich firsthand experience and access to state-of-the-art tools to effectively work with teams of any kind in order to achieve their optimal level of performance.
With the skills, tools, experience, and expertise that I possess, I can set your organization on the path to high performance–a sustainable upward trajectory in profitability, productivity, innovation, and competitiveness.
