How I Help You

I will give you powerful tools that provide deep insights about what you are dealing and how to move ahead. You can trust me to give you direct feedback on what you are doing that is getting in the way and help you shift away from that. See me as your thought partner who will stimulate your thinking and creativity. I will also help you check and examine assumptions that are blocking you or misdirecting you.

High Tech Experience

In my Director roles throughout my high tech career, I led initiatives focused on  product development improvement, IT system deployment, technical organization redesigns and technical leader development. Earlier in my career, I was an electronics system design engineer and customer engineer.  So I am uniquely effective when coaching executives and managers in technical groups like engineering, IT and product management.  I know your language and job challenges. This enables me to better increase your value-add messaging, impact and influence.

This article tells you the things to look for
and the questions to ask to get the right coach for you.
