Why Pick Me
I specialize in working with Technical Hi Po's.
For over 20 years I have enjoyed working with technical executives, managers and senior professionals - trained thousands and advised hundreds. At several high tech companies I designed and led technical Hi Po development and mentoring programs.
At all levels I can relate to technical Hi Po's where they are in their current position and help them get where they and the company want them to be.
What I Can Do
I work with each technical Hi Po, their manager and their HR Business Partner to design the right support process that meets the Hi Po's and the company's needs.
Here are some of the things I can do to boost the performance and success of technical Hi Po's in Engineering, IT and Product Management at any level - individual contributor, project manager, manager and senior manager.
My systems design engineering and customer support engineering career experience equips me to communicate with technical professionals in terms they are comfortable with including "technical speak". My MBA and years of technical organization transformation experience enables me to help technical executives ramp organization performance.
In my Director roles at VMware, Amazon Lab126 and Cisco I led initiatives focused on cross-functional product development improvement, IT system deployment, technical organization redesigns and technical leader development. Since then I am happy to say I have advised over 400 clients, the vast majority of whom were in technical or product management roles.
Because of this experience I am seen as a credible resource to advise executives, managers and senior professionals in technical groups like engineering, IT and product management. I am very passionate about helping talented technical people grow and succeed now and in their career.
