As an entrepreneurial leader in the social sector, I enjoyed bringing diverse people together to accomplish significant goals. I have been a successful CEO with hundreds of employees, and on the senior management team looking after 20 million members at 2,500 locations and $4 Billion in revenues. Authoring several leadership-oriented resource books has integrated into my work with executive forums and professional associations in North America, Europe, Australia, Africa, and the Middle East. My work today is focused on building inspirational, authentic, and inclusive leadership skills for individuals, couples, leadership teams, and peer-led forums. I enjoy working with people who want to work!
To promote connection in supportive community, I bring a style that is engaging, challenging, and fun. Others describe me as warm, loyal, and open. I connect well with those seeking personal growth, finding their "edge," or aligning with their core sense of purpose.
I am affiliated with On Course International and am a Certified Forum Facilitator for the Young Presidents' Organization (YPO). I also work with social sector and rising leader forums in my role as CEO of Redwood Leadership Recreation Laboratory. More about that at www.reclab.org.
My time is split between homes in the California desert, the high country of Colorado, and on the Mediterranean Sea in Sicily, Italy. My daughters are both well-launched. While I was married for twenty five years and with a male partner for another six, I am currently single and enjoying a global circle of friends and associates. I love most outdoor sports, international travel, a stimulating conversation with a creative meal, and a nice glass of wine at sunset. Let’s connect.
