Our Solutions

  • Team Development

    I am pleased to offer team development services utilizing the best program created in years - The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™. Based on the model described by Patrick Lencioni in the internationally best-selling books "The Five Dysfunctions of a Team" and "The Advantage," the program has a simple goal: facilitate a learning experience that helps professionals discover what it takes to build a truly cohesive and effective team.

    This unique program is assessment-based and action-oriented. Utilizing a view of the team through a self-assessment, your team learns how cohesive and effective teams behave and creates action plans to increase those behaviors. The program (in one or three day training formats) delivers more than theory and principles - it brings your team into action.

  • Executive Coaching

    As your coach, my job is to help you use information and skills that you already have to:

    -decide what changes you would like to make
    -develop a personal "action plan" in order to make those changes
    -implement your action plan and make behavioral changes
    -develop strategies to maintain the changes.

    I will support, encourage, teach, and help you stay "on track" in achieving your goals. Coaching is a healthy, positive process utilized by professionals in all industries to develop the inherent capacity to solve both business and personal challenges.
