See Clearly.
Act Skillfully.

I help good leaders become great leaders,
and great leaders reach their full potential.





Your perspective might
be limiting Potential.

You are here to flourish, and to help others do the same. Two obstacles hold you back: the skills and knowledge you haven’t developed yet, and the limiting beliefs that cause resistance to change. I’ve earned the trust and role of advisor to many senior leaders because of my direct, clear ability to help them overcome how they are getting in their own way. By combining timeless leadership principles, clear-thinking skills, and the most powerful tool available for understanding the dynamics of personality (the Awareness to Action Enneagram), I can help you unlock greater self-awareness so you can operate brilliantly from your strengths and overcome your weaknesses.
