Over the past several decades, drawing from my own history and experience as a leader, I have developed a unique approach to leadership development that emphasizes what leaders do over their personal traits or formal title. I incorporate this approach in coaching, teaching and writing. Additionally, I am inspired by working with what I call "reluctant leaders": those people who don't go looking for leadership roles, but rather find themselves in those roles because of something important that is at stake. I've learned a lot from these reluctant leaders that applies just as well with a whole range of leadership clients.
More recently, my exploration of the application of current neuroscience research has significantly informed my approach to leadership development.
