I speak at company events and at conferences in any format available, from keynotes to panel discussions, breakout sessions, webinars, virtual conferences. I also conduct training sessions, work with teams and coach individuals.
What I Speak About
All of my engagements center on a few core ideas:
How to capture the best that diverse talent has to offer on a team – what talent can do, what managers can do and what the organization can do
How to lead when you are outside your comfort zone of expertise
How to have better conversations
How to manage the emotions of change, uncertainty and disappointment

Great development events have three elements that set them apart:
The peer group interactions, and the networks that are created as a result, are strong and on point to the questions of the day.
There is just enough input, new frameworks and guidance to drive rich peer discussions.
The discussions and the frameworks are applicable and memorable.
Each year I strive to find better methods for driving discussion, better assessments that provide solid insight and better use of technology. Click here for key topics.
Working With Teams
Teams exist for one of two reasons: Either to exchange information or to collectively own and solve a problem. The former rarely needs my help. The latter is easier said than done; because to truly collectively do anything, there are a lot of interpersonal dynamics that must be sorted out before trust is strong enough to result in exceptional performance.
I believe every leader, regardless how experienced, benefits from pausing to reflect on his/her leadership practice. The best leaders in my view are constantly asking what one thing they can adjust to get a better response from their organization. Coaching can be enormously useful in that reflection process.
