The Leadership Academy

Training and Development for Leaders and Emerging Leaders

During my career I have had many great opportunities to grow and develop as a leader.  I have worked for and with other great leaders who have taught me how to be effective in leading a team and organization, how to bring your whole self to your work and how to create opportunities for others.  I have enjoyed working in both the private and public sectors as I pursued my own goals and dreams. I have traveled the world speaking about change, transformation and what it means to have fulfillment and freedom in your work.  I have had the opportunity to work with many talented people over my career. People whom I have had the privilege to coach and mentor, to help them become the new and best version of themselves.  

I have decided it is time to turn my passion into my mission and dedicate myself to investing in others, helping them become the best version of themselves.  Check out my new venture.
