If you're unsatisfied with the trajectory of your life or career, it's time to pull up your bootstraps and make a positive change!

In this interactive program, I give you a framework for real change in a truly accessible way. It's a 5-step personal strategic planning approach designed to help you live life on your terms, self-actualize, and get the outcomes you want most.

In this session, you will get crystal clear about what is most important so you can prioritize your life and business and self-author it in a way that is meaningful and satisfying. Then, I'll show you how to stay laser-focused on your plan so that you execute it with discipline and resilience.

In this session, I show you how to:

  • rewire your brain
  • Break out of your comfort zone
  • uncover & unleash your potential
  • work toward your true calling in life
  • FAST-TRACK YOUR PERSONAL & PROFESSIONAL GROWTH
  • CREATE A PLAN FOR SUCCESS

This system is my life's work distilled down into a blueprint that's easy to follow yet radically powerful.

I've witnessed first-hand how the trajectory of a professional's life can powerfully change for the better when they fully engage in this 5-step approach. It is the result of disciplined focus and purposeful decision-making. When done right, it is a dynamic, year-long activity that allows for pivots and adjustments along the way. Not only is this possible, but you can also replicate it year after year using the proven strategies I share in this session.

You might not be able to control external events, but you certainly control your own actions. I'm here to liberate your sense of freedom and show you that your reality is within your control if you have the right knowledge, mindset, and habits at hand.

Preparing Leaders For The Future Of Work

No matter the industry or size, corporations and organizations are looking at leadership differently, unlike any other time in our past.

Today's competitive and ever-changing business landscape requires that leaders have a solid executive-level mindset, presence, and approach. They must be fully engaged, consistently focused, and highly articulate to create impact and achieve results.

However, being at the top of today's corporate ladder requires more than just high intellect, hard work, and dedication. Career sustainability comes from:

  • generating a shared vision that others willingly follow,
  • guiding and maximizing the efforts of others toward that vision, and
  • facilitating collaborative thinking and problem-solving.

This means today's leaders must also be experts at navigating the needs of people. It's about collaborating and communicating more effectively to maximize impact!

As a frequent speaker, I annually engage thousands of people across diverse audiences and industries, covering topics that impact their success. 


Whether it is an intimate training program or a conference keynote with thousands of attendees, you'll find that my programs are designed to help attendees combine soft skills with hard skills to transform their interpersonal leadership effectiveness and successfully navigate their professional landscape.


I firmly believe that today's leaders must drive their own destinies, and I help by preparing them to be resilient leaders who rely on their strength, wisdom, and self-confidence to shape and elicit positive outcomes while reaching their highest level of interpersonal leadership effectiveness.

Transformational Insights For Career Success

New Leader Jumpstart: Moving from Individual Contributor to Emerging Leader

1st Time Leader

One of the biggest mistakes new leaders make is assuming the skills that got them promoted are the skills they’ll use in their new leadership role. Nothing could be further from the truth.

As an individual contributor, it’s easy to work independently; you’re in control of the work you complete. When you get great results through diligence, knowledge, and technical expertise, you’re rewarded and sometimes even promoted. That’s NOT the job of a leader, however, which is why it’s so difficult to go from individual contributor to first-time leader.

A leader’s primary focus is getting work done with and through others. Your role is about your ability to guide others to accomplish the work. The leap can feel enormous, especially if you have limited experience supervising others, yet with the proper framework, awareness, and training, you can do it successfully, standing out as a leader just as you did as an individual contributor!

key takeaways

Attendees will learn how to:

  1. 1
    make the critical mindset shift from individual contributor to successful leader
  2. 2
    build relationships and teamwork based on trust
  3. 3
    become a deep and powerful listener for greater influence and impact
  4. 4
    leverage the power of questions to lead and coach more effectively
  5. 5
    coach and develop team members and ensure high performance

Master the Elusive Quality of Quiet Confidence

Quiet Confidence

Confidence is the cornerstone of success! Without it, getting what you want – personally and professionally – is virtually impossible. To advance your career, you must believe you can. Otherwise, a lack of self-confidence will most certainly thwart your efforts.

Would you like to upgrade your professional presence, become more visible, and improve your relationships with others? If so, you must possess the strength and resiliency of a confident professional, demonstrate a willingness to leap outside your comfort zone and learn to exude a gravitational pull that is impossible for others to ignore. Only confident business professionals can easily do this, and the ones with quiet confidence do it best!

key takeaways

In this content-rich, high-energy, and interactive session, attendees will learn how to cultivate an authentic (and more resilient) level of confidence. After attending, participants will be able to:

  1. 1
    identify the true source of your authentic confidence
  2. 2
    better manage your internal dialogue so that it enhances your self-esteem
  3. 3
    immediately implement a Five-Step Action Plan for an enhanced level of confidence

As a result, they will project more credibility and command the respect of others – all the while feeling much more comfortable in their own skin!

Gain Emotional Clarity & Master Self-Regulation

Emotional Regulation

Emotional clarity is a specific kind of awareness that considers cause and effect. It's an enhanced ability to identify and understand events that yield different emotions and outcomes. Doing so allows you to anticipate emotional responses and proactively manage them, giving you more control over your decisions and actions and instilling a mindset of resilience.

key takeaways

Attendees will learn a new framework for identifying emotional triggers and regulating their emotional responses to remain calm and in control when fears and unpleasant emotions begin to surface and undermine their confidence as leaders.
