Leaders who last need more
than skills and vision --

they must lead from within.


I work with non-profits, NGO’s, Foundations, and Corporations to help individuals and organizations achieve more conscious and inspired leadership. My approach ensures leadership that enlivens and enriches human communities and workplaces, and produces sustainable, positive results.

I bring more than 25 years of experience as a global leadership strategist and leadership development practitioner, across multiple sectors and 52 countries.

Leaders who live out their values
make a lasting difference

Increasing the Wisdom Quotient of Leadership -- one insight at a time. 


In my work I explore: 

  • the role and impact of suffering, health, and healing within organizations 

  • how we can reshape our inner operating systems to live in greater flow and joy

  • increasing access to insight and wisdom as we wade through the chaos and complexity of current times.



I help individuals and organizations achieve more conscious and inspired leadership, that produces sustainable results through:
  • Organizational Executive & Leadership Coaching

  • Individual Leadership and Group Coaching

  • Leadership Ecosystem Design Consultation

  • Coach Training, Mentoring and Supervision

  • Workshops & Retreats
