I am dedicated to helping organizations develop leaders who are competent, confident and committed to their personal, team and organizational success. I am devoted to helping leaders produce results by breaking through external and internal barriers to change.

From 1978 until 1984, I held management consulting and training positions at corporate and division levels of American Hospital Supply Corporation (AHSC). At AHSC, I developed and delivered training programs to supervisors, managers and executives and provided coaching to leaders who were looking to enhance their impact, influence and overall leadership effectiveness. Additionally, I managed the leadership development function at two of AHSC’s divisions.

I started my consulting practice in 1984. In 1992 I cofounded Executive Resources Consulting Group and in 2003 I became a Partner in The Pivotal Factor, LLC. 

I am the author of “Everyone Wins! Playing the Game of Conflict Resolution In All Your Relationships, “Conflict Resolution Training: 10 Rules and 8 Steps To Resolve Every Conflict Every Time” and “Present and Persuade: Create Talks and Speeches That Capture Hearts and Change Minds.”

Originally from Chicago, I have lived in the metropolitan Phoenix area since 1986.

All of my processes and programs provide practical approaches to solving your problems. I promise that you will be able to use the skills I teach both immediately as well as throughout your career.
