You are a visionary leader - of organizations, of ideas, of actions - and you desire it all - health, happiness and success. I can help.
I've been an executive coach for longer than I've been anything else in my life, with good reason - I love the work today even more than I did when I began practicing over 20 years ago. I'm a perpetual student of human behaviour and motivation and I find people endlessly fascinating.
Beyond work I'm the single parent to two young men who are finding their respective ways in the world - one in marketing and sales, one as a professional esports player. I love to travel - anytime, anywhere. Day to day you'll find me doing yoga, cycling, reading and seeing as much live theatre as I can.
I work with executives and entrepreneurs around the world who are looking for a trusted advisor and resource to ensure they are working at their sustainable best, with their strengths and with the goal of maximizing the success of their organization. Ideal clients are C-suite leaders, founders and start up leaders, high performers/top talent, execs new in a role, and subject matter experts stepping into large scale people leadership and exec level roles.
My first book, "The Complete Executive: The 10-Step System for Great Leadership Performance" was released in Sept., 2012.
My firm, Parachute Executive Coaching, was one of the first firms able to provide executive coaching on a global scale.
I am a Master Certified Coach, the top designation granted by the International Coach Federation. Prior to becoming a professional coach I worked in Canada and the US for both publicly traded and privately held companies so I have had direct experience of the leadership challenges that face many of my clients. I have an MBA in Marketing, I have completed coach training from two leading accredited schools and have taught for both schools. I have worked extensively with numerous 360 feedback survey tools and qualitative insight processes. I am a Certified Health Coach from the Institute of Integrated Nutrition. I use applied Positive Psychology throughout my work, and am a mindfulness trainer.
I am a nationally published columnist, a frequent contributor to various media and a sought after keynote speaker.
