I have 15 years of leading organizations and teams, in moving towards improved collaboration and operational excellence. As a process agnostic agilest, I coach teams to collaborate brilliantly, to deliver on stakeholder expectations, by design. As an ORSC & ICF Certified Systemic Team Coach, I leverage a systemic lens, guiding teams at all levels to adopt new ways of working to achieve individual and collective goals. My methods balance output with outcomes, is people centric and complexity conscious.

Most change initiatives focus solely on process and tools; I improve on this by integrating team design, bring clarity to team purpose, and coach leaders to step into creative leadership.

My consulting and coaching is that of humble inquiry with advocacy, engaging with: 

HUMILITY: I don’t have all the answers, I remind myself to take a world view, since we are our perspective. Breakthrough solutions requiring all perspectives to emerge. FAITH: Individuals and systems are inherently creative and intelligent; I believe in the collective team and do so with the deep belief that they will succeed. CARE: Having a desire and being intrinsically motivated to do what is good for the other person(s) while giving voice to those that are not represented in the moment.
