NEW: Building Leaders From the Inside-Out
My dream has been to share the most powerful part of my leadership research and experience, that truly great leaders operate from a strong moral foundation, known as the Leadership Triangle, including; knowledge of self (personal growth & self-awareness), strong personal beliefs (operating manual) and a powerful understanding of purpose (intrinsic motivation and true north).

The epitome of being your full potential is to self-actualize in one's life and career. "Self-actualization, according to Maslow, represents growth of an individual toward fulfillment of the highest needs—those for meaning in life, in particular. Carl Rogers also created a theory implicating a “growth potential” whose aim was to integrate congruently the “real self” and the “ideal self” thereby cultivating the emergence of the “fully functioning person."

A Personal Approach
"A common theme integrated into my coaching work and facilitation is the philosophy that the most significant and meaningful footprint we can leave relates to helping our fellow human beings and our employees continue to grow and challenge them to achieve their full potential. A fundamental desire of humanity is to grow with a pursuit towards self-actualization, but few know how to accomplish this.Click here to Read More
"Developing Great Leaders Is Essential to the growth and development of people, but the leader must have developed themselves first, which is the focus of my Leadership Development coursework and coaching, to Build Leaders from the Inside-Out. It is the role of leader as coach, as a good parent is to their children, that provides the guidance and genuine support to the development of their employees. Growth ultimately results in new attitudes, beliefs and behaviors that makes an employee feel better about themselves, and when combined with genuine appreciation results in higher performance levels, being engaged, higher levels of retention, along with a desire to achieve great results. The partnership of Great Leaders with a High Performance Learning Organization, can create a learning culture where employees thirst to continuously learn and develop their potential. The development of leaders and employees to achieve their full potential is a win-win-win. When employees develop their potential we experience the ripple effect: employees grow, so do companies, and so does humanity!"
