Courageous leadership consulting

“In the past, jobs were about muscles, now they’re about brains, but in the future they’ll be about the heart.” Minouche Shafik

In today’s complex, fast changing, and unpredictable work environment, leadership requires a new level of courage.  The world is desperate for braver leaders and courageous cultures. 

Successful innovation, creativity, accountability, adaptability, diversity, equity and inclusion,  hard conversations, feedback, problem solving, and ethical decision making all require courage, a collection of four skill sets that are 100% teachable.

What is your call to courage? 

I am a leadership consultant, courage builder, ICF executive coach, and Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator with over 20 years of experience in education and leadership development. I harness my deep people expertise, strong empathy, and courage to help leaders create braver cultures where team members feel a sense of belonging, purpose, and engagement. Courageous cultures drive success.
