If you are considering team coaching you may be interested in the Breakthrough Leadership Team System (BLTS.) This program consists of:
For nearly 20 years I have worked in the trenches of change management and transformation. I have observed and experienced what can go wrong and why: unprepared leadership, frustrated employees, failed projects and pissed off customers. I’ve also observed and experienced what can go right and why: prepared and committed leadership, engaged employees, successful projects, and happy customers.
I support you in making things go right. I want to make a positive difference for you and the people in your organization.
The clients I work with have called me…the workplace therapist, boat rocker, system viewer, change wizard, dot connector, truth teller, and keep it real coach. They’ve told me I bring needed levity and humor to difficult situations. I excel at shaking hands and kissing babies and building trusted relationships. I’m the guy who gets people to buy into personal and professional growth and change before they buy out.
Coaching is about the process, and I am a process guy. I don’t need a deep dive into your subject matter or industry expertise. I work with you or your team to get stuff done. To make progress. To accelerate performance. To guide you from point A to point B.
My coaching work focuses on increasing self-awareness, identifying patterns and ways to shift perception or change behaviors to overcome obstacles and achieve your goals. I coach individuals and teams to survive and thrive through personal and professional change and adversity, overcoming challenges that impact success to achieve rapid results.
I understand adversity and diversity; I’ve lived it. As a member of the LGBTQ community and person with A.D.D, I’ve faced the impacts and stereotypes of being viewed differently and learning differently. And I have worked at strategies to overcome those, both personally and professionally.
I coach people at all levels from executives, to middle management, and all the way down to emerging leaders and interns. I also work with entrepreneurs of growing businesses. I stay engaged in service delivery across various industries to ensure my coaching guidance is tested in the real world and that my perspectives and approach remain fresh and relevant.
I’m an author on various topics of organizational development and leadership and the creator of the Recruitment and Retention Lifecycle ™. I have a Masters in Organization Development & Leadership (MSOD) with a focus in behavioral science from American University and the NTL Institute. I’m a certified Scrum Master (CSM) and also certified in various strategy, change, team dynamics and behavioral assessment tools. I hold a government security clearance. I am also a certified coach and member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF.)
I’m not everyone’s cup of tea. Some find me to be more like a shot of tequila. If you’re looking for a cup of Chamomile, we’re probably not a match. If you are ready to get to root causes, embrace growth, hop on the change highway, receive direct yet empathetic feedback, and can appreciate a call-it-like-they-see-it guide to support you to accelerate performance and achieve rapid results, then let’s talk!
You know yourself the best. We collaborate to accelerate your performance and achieve your goals. Quick fixes or band-aids don't produce long term positive results. Commitment to continuous improvement does.
Change is never easy but that shouldn't stop progress. I collaborate with those not afraid to tackle changes head on and create a positive and successful transformation for themselves and those around them.
It is possible to achieve rapid results and meet your desired outcomes. I actually prefer it that way. No need to drag things out. Once we meet agreed to goals, we can move on to achieving even more results.
I believe in being authentic. You should, too. Authenticity leads to trust. Transparency leads to trust. Accountability leads to trust. And without trust, achieving long term positive results can prove difficult.
I try my hardest to maintain a positive, yet realistic, working relationship. I don't claim things are easy when they can be quite complex. I do try and steer clear of negativity. The most successful clients do the same.
My focus is you. People can fear change. They need their voices heard. They need empathy from from a coach. Empathy supports you to adopt new behaviors and actions and adapt to changes to increase your success.
