My Next Chapter

Embracing the art of guiding others to develop trusting, congruent, and engaged teams; By practicing deep listening and being mindful of the pillars of emotional intelligence that are interwoven into a leader's way of thinking, behaving, and communicating, leaders support, challenge, and motivate their team to develop and grow.

Favorite Quote

"We desperately need more leaders who are committed to courageous, wholehearted leadership and who are self-aware enough to lead from their hearts, rather than unevolved leaders who lead from hurt and fear."
