I am the founder and President of Coaching for Positive Action that provides coaching and consulting services to executives and managers in organizations striving to make a bigger difference.
I have been coaching executives and managers on how to lead their organizations with a clear vision, through major transformations, and to higher levels of performance for more than thirty years. Regardless of the focus, my coaching and consulting consistently contributed to improving the effectiveness of clients in achieving their goals, and helping clients develop stronger leadership, strategy, thinking, communication, and questioning skills. My consulting work has focused extensively on resilience, compassionate communication, talent/career/performance management, employee engagement, the role of the Human Resources function, gender balance, and diversity overall.
My coaching and consulting work is grounded in my former experiences as an executive and manager. I was responsible for corporate strategic planning, quality improvement, human resources, diversity, and organizational effectiveness/change management functions. During my tenure leading the human resources function, my organization’s reputation as an employer of choice received significant national recognition from five external benchmarking organizations. I have held leadership roles in implementing numerous major organizational changes. Throughout these initiatives, a trademark of my contributions has been ensuring that the change efforts were meaningful, achieved targeted results, and were implemented in positive and compassionate ways.
I am a certified HeartMath Resilience Advantage trainer. I also have certifications in executive, business, personal, conversational intelligence, and heart intelligence coaching. I have a MS degree in Organizational and Human Resources Development from American University/NTL, and a BS degree in Psychology from Centre College of Kentucky.
How I use the HeartMath System
I have integrated the HeartMath System into my business consulting and coaching to help clients experience the benefits of internal coherence in performing ongoing work, managing challenges that arise, facilitating organizational changes, and shifting personal behaviors and mindsets.
