I help people and organizations connect, communicate, change, and grow.
Change. We know it's the only constant. Perhaps the Buddha said it best, "everything is impermanent."
But that doesn't mean we all like it. Some are completely averse to it. Some do everything they can to avoid it. And yet, if everything stayed the same, we wouldn't like that either. Change is how we grow.
I work with people and organizations to help them successfully create, drive, manage, and survive change. And ideally, thrive through change, gain more of what they want and less of what they don't.
How? By nature and by nurture, I'm a communicator, consultant, and coach. I ask a lot of questions and I listen with all my senses. I also research, brainstorm, strategize, plan, test, advise, and facilitate.
I also create, cultivate, curate, and edit content. When you need to connect with people or connect some dots, listen better or find the right words, professionally or personally, I can help. Discover how we can work together by following the links below.
Why gulls, you ask... I love Jonathan Livingston Seagull. This modern-day fable by Richard Bach delightfully illustrates the journey, the hardship, and ultimately the joy a young seagull finds as he breaks away from societal norms and expectations to follow his passion and honor his dreams. It's a story of love, learning, commitment, and forgiveness. "Don’t believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding. Find out what you already know and you will see the way to fly.” And second, third and more, they're long-lived, resourceful, inquisitive, and intelligent birds.
