I am determined to radically change your workplace.

“It’s not how many times you get knocked down that count, it’s how many times you get back up. ”
—George A. Custer

When it comes to creating and facilitating deeply connected relationships in organizations, I believe I am the best. I have worked with Generals, Presidents, CEOs, Founders, UN Officials, and co-created sessions using my In Great Company methodology to bring disparate people together to create solutions they didn’t think possible. 

My groundbreaking research and methods focus on the concept of emotional connectedness as a way to create trusting, positive, values-based movements inside of organizations to inspire peak performance.

I am passionate about the work I do, am driven every day to perform at my peak, and I want you to have that same drive for yourself and those within your organization.

SYSTEMIC COLLABORATION

Collaboration is a common business buzzword, but systemic collaboration is different. It gets to the core of true and functional collaboration—where collaboration becomes a part of the inner workings of the organization and its decision-making processes.

POSITIVE FUTURE 

Because positivity is a cultural contagion, emotional connectedness is achieved when individuals use it in a unified way to move forward together to achieve results.

ALIGNMENT OF VALUES

Organizations that place an emphasis on higher-order qualities such as honesty, integrity, and resonance with personal beliefs, drive emotional connectedness when leaders and peers embrace these common values.

RESPECT

Perhaps the most important of the five elements, respect is the element that catalyzes all of the others to drive peak performance. A sense of emotional connectedness becomes far deeper in environments where respect is established as a type of social currency that is exchanged reciprocally.

KILLER ACHIEVEMENT

Achievements feel hollow unless both the individual and organization experience a benefit. Killer achievement delivers a combination of financial and emotional upside that amplifies the effect for everyone.

I wrote the book. Literally.

The surefire way to boost business growth and team effectiveness: Make sure employees are emotionally connected to the company. In Great Company presents a practical new approach to ensure that employees love their workplace and perform at their highest levels.
