Imagine an organization with a culture so healthy and strong that the employees can not be poached. They happily come to work, and give discretionary effort on a regular basis. An organization where the employees feel so confident that management has their backs, they go out of their way to ensure the organization thrives. With my help, my clients create that kind of environment in their business. Who do you know that would love to set that kind of unshakeable foundation in place?
How I Got Started
My story is quite an adventure, but it is a sign of a life well lived. I consider myself part geek, but in all the good ways. I love learning and figuring out what makes things work. I love exploring people, places, history, culture and music, as well as learning what makes a good bourbon just to name a few! I also like to think of myself as a bit of a connoisseur. And one of the most important traits a connoisseur possesses is the ability to recognize some of the less visible or obvious notes or flavors and to value, appreciate, and understand that sometimes it’s the unexpected combinations that create a truly remarkable end result.
Just like crafting a good bourbon, we can work to help enhance and evolve your leadership style to make you more palatable to your organization. We will fine tune your personal leadership style to demonstrate a depth of flavor that is subtle yet complex, but not overpowering, making it a natural choice that is easy to enjoy. I believe there is greatness in everyone, and great leaders are born out of their own set of unique and special components; we just need to figure out how to express yours in an effective and productive way, and I would be honored to help you do that.
So what’s my story? I have been amazingly blessed to have experienced things that most people only dream of. I was born in Israel which immersed me in a rich mix of diverse cultures, ideas, and philosophies very early in life. I look back now with the understanding that I started life surrounded by rich history, and complex world views. As a freshman in college I presented at the San Diego Museum of Man’s Annual Rock Art Symposium as an expert on the Close Reading of Incised Rocks. I have published 2 books that have sold on 4 continents. I have studied inter-personal and inter-gender communication skills, which have facilitated my business, as well as personal, relationships. I have lived in 2 countries and visited many others. I speak multiple languages. I experienced Bon Om Touk (The Cambodian Water Festival) in Siem Reap. I have participated in shamanic trainings that few spiritual practitioners get to experience. I have been a first responder, and was certified as an immediate, on-scene, crisis and trauma intervention specialist. In this role I worked with governmental agencies and other first responders to support those affected by unexpected traumas. So yes, I have lived an amazing life so far.
These are just a few highlights of my life’s journey, but each of those experiences has shaped me profoundly. They have solidified my ability to consult with many types of people, with varying backgrounds and diverse beliefs, and to guide them toward the realization of their personal visions.
Today I combine my communication skills with my degree in Business Administration, Doctor of Metaphysics, crisis intervention training, and study of the psychology of functional organizations (I told you I was a bit of a geek!) to guide my clients to define and clarify their visions in order to ultimately achieve their dream life. I want people to know that they can create their circumstances by design, and teach them how to do it at will. My dream is to empower everyone in the realization of their life's vision.
