I am a student of nature and living systems as a paradigm for how to navigate times of dramatic change. I work with individuals, organizations, networks and communities to see how to creatively and powerfully move forward amidst the changes we are seeing. We are adaptive, creative, connected and resilient as human beings and need to bring forward these capacities in all our endeavors through well designed processes, change efforts, strategic dialogs and community events.
I have an eye for the bridge between the strategic and the personal. I am always listening for the strategic paths forward: Looking for and naming the clarity that arises as groups works together; Looking for the deeper purpose and potential of a given meeting, conference, or training and seeing how we can make that real; Identifying the systemic issues at play and sensing what moves are available. This is often very “personal” work which starts by bringing forward the authentic voices within a team to discover what is really at the heart of our efforts together. From this platform of shared purpose and authentic leadership great things happen.
My work for 18 years has been about change, leadership, and dialog. I am a facilitator, a dialog host, a group process architect/artist, an organizational development consultant, and a leadership coach. My career included 13 years in high tech industry leading a large training organization and working as a Leadership and Organizational Development Consultant. There I learned about human potential, seeding innovation, adaptive leadership and designing participative change efforts.
