*Executive coach/confidant – I have logged over 2000 hours working 1/1 with CEOs and other senior executives, helping them to refine their skills, clarify their vision/objectives, and improve their ability to lead and develop people I bring insights gleaned from working with a variety of industries, offer you the confidential ear of a trusted advisor when you “just need somebody to talk to,” and give you honest feedback and challenge regarding your leadership tendencies and characteristics.
*10 year Vistage Chair – Vistage is the world’s largest organization of CEOs, close to 30,000 members, who are in small groups of 12-15 in a local community, and who serve as each other’s board of advisors. As Chair, I facilitated the monthly meetings and met each individual 1/1 as their personal coach.
As a speaker, I have conducted nearly 1500 seminars on a variety of leadership topics around the world. Perhaps my most recognizable was being chosen by Tom Peters to present his “In Search of Excellence” seminars in 8 countries during the 90s. I have done seminars with such titles as “Power of Purpose, Essentials of Leadership, , and Become Famous for Customer Service. On a scale of 5-1, my average score from at least 1500 seminars was 4.6. My evaluations contained such comments as: captivating, stimulating, inspirational, humorous, highly informational, and most importantly, REAL.
