3fd7157” I am an intent observer, I get to the essence. I evaluate with a deep childlike curiosity. I challenge what I hear and can be painfully honest. I am feverishly excited about real, practical leadership and my enthusiasm is infectious.  I dislike cliches and follow only tested theories.
My mission is to support my clients in living a courageous life. “
