How I can help you

I am an experienced and professionally certified coach and mentor who enjoys working with clients to help foster business success and personal development. Technically and experientially I will draw upon 38 years of corporate executive experience in both large and small, public and private companies. I am particularly keen and able to help you find your way through difficult work or career transitions, negotiating, due diligence, handling difficult business situations, team building, interactions and conflicts. Having been a CEO in several difficult and emotionally demanding situations, I can empathize with your loneliness as a business owner or President who needs an external coach to help you work through those issues which, for whatever reason, you feel unable or unwilling to discuss with other members of your team or family. I will listen patiently and work with you to get to the heart of an opportunity or issue and develop the right next course of action and then support you in its successful execution. Technically I bring experience in sales and marketing, strategic and business planning and operational challenges and with my specific background I can provide insight and knowledge of the technology, software and services industry. I am a good listener and will help you to identify any blockages you may have in your thought processes and decision making and then support you through the difficult phase of converting these ideas into action and real results.
