I show audiences how develop, nurture and utilize resilience to move them from from surviving to thriving. The state of California, UCSD Medical Center, County of Los Angeles, Department of Health Services, Sony Entertainment, Bloomingdales and many others have used my skill to develop leaders, motivate staff, and conduct executive coaching for senior leaders. Sometimes, I am asked to be the quarterly "shot in the arm" organizations sometimes need from time to time to regain the focus on success and productivity.
