I founded my Vistage Practice to bring leadership and talent management best practices from Global 1000 Companies to small and midsize companies. My clients see me as an extension of their leadership teams and committed to their long term success, helping them grow their businesses, strengthen their leadership teams, and rekindle the commitment and engagement of their people.
As my practice has grown, I’ve become the only Vistage Master Chair in the Twin Cities. Less than 5 percent of our chairs across the country receive this award for outstanding chairing and mentoring over a several year period.
I am a business leader, an executive coach and a talent management leader with a Ph.D. in Organizational Psychology, and over 25 years of experience at PDI Ninth House, a premier global leadership and talent management consulting firm. With a proven record of innovation & results, I partner with leaders to grow their businesses & outperform expectations. What sets me apart from other executive coaches is that I have “sat in your chair”, having led sales, marketing, and product development teams. I also have successfully run several global businesses in various stages (start up, rapid growth, turnaround, outsourcing, divestiture).
