Are you a successful leader

frustrated by problems that don’t get fixed? Problems that damage morale, alienate prospects, and worry clients?


  • Customer demands become annoying distractions
  • Technology feels like an uncontrollable expense
  • Staff and departments showing signs of conflict
  • Projects missing milestones

These are common problems that have real solutions. solutions I know how to help you implement.


My clients are talented, confident and successful leaders who know where they want to go and looking for greater profitability, predictability, and alignment. The one thing they all have in common is lack of experience with problems they’ve never had to fix.

I work with leadership teams and Boards of Directors to create:

Predictability using corporate lifecycle theory
Collaboration and communication using scientifically proven change management practices (Prosci®)

Sustainable, profitable growth using the Mandelberg Business Managers Reality Inquiry (mBMRI)

40 years of experience and success has proven my ability to achieve these goals. I do it by sharing my knowledge, my tools, and my expertise so you can use them in your business. The result – your business is ready to adapt, evolve, and grow.

Are you concerned about where your organization may be wasting resources? Do you know your organization’s areas of weakness?

Struggling to survive in a world of constant change

Businesses want predictability and dependability, i.e., no change, while the world is constantly changing. This creates friction.
