Following are some of my training and certifications that prepared me to influence and lead the sustainable change I do today.
Santa Clara University MBA degree holder, Concentration in Management of Innovation
I am academically and professionally trained to help people and organizations succeed doing things they’ve never done before. Often, these initiatives begin as goals some believe are impossible. If you have never done a thing and sustained it over the long term, even if you think it may be impossible, I can help you too.
UC Berkeley Psychology Undergraduate degree holder
I understand neuroscience: our nervous system wires us to get good at things and repeat them. When we repeatedly think thoughts and take actions in life, our nervous system helps us get good at those actions. This keeps us fat, broke, lazy, lonely, angry, or whatever else we are in life. Conversely, when applied productively, this biological tendency keeps us fit, rich, active, friendly, or happy. These biological imperatives keep us stuck, feeling caged, even if we’re unhealthy, even if we’re unhappy about it, no matter how much we want to change. I can help you learn to short-circuit the action patterns that keep you stuck, and train your nervous system (and body) to do the things YOU want.
Graduate of Landmark Worldwide education programs
Paraphrasing Mark Twain, we believe things that just ain’t so, and we get ourselves in trouble when we act on those beliefs. We ALL do it. We believe untrue “facts” are real, and based on those incorrect beliefs, we take action. I can help you see those beliefs, so you can put them where you want them, where they will no longer drive your actions. This enables YOU to get back in the driver’s seat.
Addiction education program graduate and proud member of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA)
If addiction is any part of your story or belief about yourself, even if you only think it might be the case, I understand. I have experienced and I understand addiction. I know first hand its grasp on the actions we take, and on our motivation, whether we want it or not, whether we like it or not.
Certified Strategic Intervention Coach
I’m trained to intervene in the moment and make a difference for you. I’m committed to your success, sensitive to your concerns, willing to do what it takes to make a difference, and unwilling to settle for you having less than you want.
Project Management Professional Certification from Project Management Institute
I am skilled at breaking down audacious, complex undertakings into manageable chunks that enable teams and individuals to succeed. Let’s set a goal and go after it!
Experienced Professional Change Leader
I have significant professional experience creating large-scale change. I’ve spent my entire career working with people to understand the outcomes they want, then helping them refine their environments, teams, behaviors, and systems to support those outcomes. Like any organization, your life is a system of individuals. I can help you too.
I’ve worked with the following leading companies in implementing significant changes in the biggest and most successful companies in the world:
- Deloitte Consulting
- Best Buy
- Dun & Bradstreet
- Bank of America
- JP Morgan Chase
- Goldman Sachs
I’ve also been a part of some real train wrecks, with some of the above companies, and the following:
- Circuit City
I did the hard work of personal transformation, and I’ve got a better work life, personal life, and financial results. I got it done.
