Philosophy and Approach

 

To drive organization alignment, commitment, and accomplishment.​leaders need to stress precision and clarity so that their agendas are well understood and widely supported.

 

Prioritizing precision and clarity also helps ensure that matters addressed are real and relevant to the organization’s growth and vitality.

Beyond clarity, good leaders must achieve trust and create community. These bedrock ingredients of effective organizations stem from meaningful personal interactions, which my coaching and workshops help nurture.

--------------

“Without sustained effort to define important questions precisely and to answer them with specific detailed evidence and clear, rigorous reasoning, an organization and its leaders are more likely to drift like a boat without a rudder, guided only by impressions and judgements that no one has thought through. In this vacuum, discussions can shift subtly from issues of external competitiveness to internal politics…”

 

– Harvard ethicists Joseph Badaracco and Richard Ellsworth, in Leadership and the Quest for Integrity
