Trusted by change leaders in world-class organizations like:

If you’re like most operational excellence and performance improvement change leaders, you know that creating a learning culture is the key that will unlock your organization’s long-term sustainable success. But you are not there…yet.

The question – how do you get there faster?

How do you move your own team out of the problem-solving “expert” trap and a focus on implementing continuous improvement projects, and get your leaders to understand and practice behaviors that reflect a people-centered learning culture?

You have tried lots of things like hiring big consulting firms, and investing in training initiatives and “lean six-sigma” certification programs, which helped some…but not enough.

The problem with these tactics is that they are missing one key ingredient: 

Personalized support for YOU, the change leaders.

My programs are designed with one goal in mind – giving YOU customized guidance to help you accelerate the rate of learning and change in YOUR organization.

Whether I provide support behind the scenes, alongside you, or in front, I always build your credibility and authority, and position you as the leader of change.

With me as your strategic partner, mentor, and coach, you will:

  • Enhance your change leadership skills, confidence, and influence
  • Create effective strategies to achieve large-scale culture change
  • Empower your internal team of change leaders with the capabilities to effectively coach leaders at all levels
  • Embed continuous improvement and scientific thinking as a way of life in your team and organization

Now let's talk about how I can help YOU lead transformational change and create a learning culture in your organization.

There are three ways I typically work with my clients:

Trusted Advisor

Personalized Guidance for You

When we work together, we focus on your priorities and objectives. Together we will determine the most effective action steps for leading your specific change and influencing your executives. Through strategic thought partnership, mentorship, and coaching as your trusted advisor, I will inspire and equip you to clarify your goals and purpose, access your inner wisdom, and enhance your leadership, coaching, and influence skills. You will develop the capability, confidence, clarity, and creativity to accelerate change in yourself, your team, and your organization.

Internal Change Leader Development

Customized Learning for Your Improvement Team

I will help you transform your team from continuous improvement doers into continuous improvement change leaders and coaches. Through customized workshops, group coaching, action planning sessions, and individualized mentorship, together we will combine your team’s technical problem-solving expertise with social, relational, and facilitation skills that will dramatically enhance their effectiveness. As a result, your team of continuous improvement and lean management professionals will grow into change leaders equipped to deepen the capabilities of everyone across your organization.

Executive and Leadership Team Alignment

Alignment and Development for Your Senior Executives and Leaders

For the times that your transformation effort could use outside credibility, actionable inspiration, and an infusion of positive energy – and you need a seat at the table – I offer interactive workshops, customized facilitation, and strategic coaching for your executive team and leaders, and targeted inspirational keynotes for your organization. As a result, we’ll align the entire organization – from the C-Suite to the frontline – around a vision for making continuous improvement a way of life while creating momentum for the change and motivation to grow the skills and capabilities to make the change a reality.
