Taking a strengths-based approach, I champion the success of leaders and teams. I create an environment where people can explore, test, and integrate new skills and perspectives. It is a dynamic process, creative, purposeful, and always with sights set on what matters most to you. To my coaching I bring 20 years as a senior operations professional with over 4,500 hours of project leadership, giving me a breadth of knowledge of organizational dynamics. I also teach Coaching in Organizations at Royal Roads University, where I am forever reminded of the importance of context and systems thinking in leadership. Why Coaching? I believe that success and fulfillment come from being clear and purposeful about your goals and aspirations. For an individual or a team, to work by design, not by default. For me, coaching is anchored by the premise of boldly connecting to your best thinking and the areas that hold the great promise for success.
