Chapter: Sioux City SCORE

An expert creating cultures where people are inspired to do great things! I can help my SCORE clients focus on how business process design and continuous improvement align with the value-propositions they are trying to create for all stakeholders (customers, employees, suppliers, lenders, investors, etc.). Skilled in helping small business owners develop organizational structures which ensure change is managed so risks can be optimized as they experience growth and react to variations in their business situations. Between my business consulting experience and 10+ years in the food manufacturing and chemical processing industries and have helped save millions of dollars through projects focused on eliminating waste (practical application of lean management principles). My approach is to work with people who want to genuinely and effectively lead their organizations successfully and with conviction and help them develop their "plans for excellence". Through the practical organizational leadership model I developed, I teach individuals and teams how to set the conditions for success and create a continuous improvement culture by fulfilling leadership principles as they apply to each business' unique business needs and processes. I have a Master's Degree in Business Administration and a Master Certificate in Executive Coaching (both earned in 2012 from Bellevue University). I served in the U.S. Army as a Ranger-qualified Combat Engineer (officer) and in the Military Police (enlisted). It was during my time in the military that I recognized the concept of "practical leadership" which I have developed over the course of my business career and teach others to apply to create high-performance teams and organizations of excellence.
