It’s vitally important that you develop your leadership as you would any other craft. The world needs great leaders – the world needs your leadership.
- As a leader, people look to you as a model of behavior.

- As a leader, you create an environment of trust.
- As a leader, you bring courage and humanity.
Being intentional is critical.
You directly influence the lives of those around you.
Intention + Choice + Performance Habits = Leadership
I am an illuminator.
I create partnerships – with you, with teams, with organizations – to illuminate your potential so that you have your desired impact, so that you lead with intention.
What is the impact you want to make?
Without fail, every leader I interact with wants to make an impact. Have you defined your impact? Do you know what you’re aiming for? Are you tapping into the resources you have within yourself to reach your aspiration?
I am a partner.
Let’s partner so that you reach your aspiration.
Are you ready to gain a new view of the choices available to you?
Are you ready to make choices that will bring about different results?
Are you ready to be intentional about who you are as a leader?
Are you ready to be intentional about how you want to lead?
Let’s partner to illuminate new possibilities for you as a leader!
I have worked as a leader in the corporate world for 25 years. However, I wasn’t finding meaning in my work. And, worse, I believed I wasn’t adding value and as soon as someone figured this out, I would be out of a job.
I believed this story.
In fact, it defined the way I saw myself. Others saw me as a leader, but I didn’t see myself as a leader. I was playing small.
The truth was very different.
I finally was able to see that the truth was very different from the story I told myself. I was providing value – in fact, quite a lot of value. I was a trusted leader. However, I wasn’t in the driver’s seat of my career.
I had fallen into a trap of believing that someone else was going to find my meaning in my work. I was waiting for my fairy godmother or a knight in shining armor to point the way for me.
Then, one day, it hit me.
I was allowing others to define who I was. I was struggling against this wrong view of myself. I was blind to what was in my heart. I was struggling against myself when what I really needed to do was listen to my heart and move into the driver’s seat of my career.
I started paying attention.
I paid attention to what I loved and found energizing. I love being a coach, a facilitator, a speaker. I love bringing out the best in others. I moved to the driver’s seat in my life and I have intentionally stayed there. Being intentional and knowing that you have a choice about being in the driver’s seat was a game-changer.
Like it did for me, choosing to lead with intention will expand your influence. I learned to Intention + Choice + Performance habits equal expanded influence and impact. This equation is the magic ingredient.
I became an intentional leader.
My intention is to partner with you – to illuminate what’s possible for you – to inspire you to be the most brilliant leader you can be.
I am a lifelong learner.
I am always growing and developing myself so that I can be of the greatest service to you.
