Experience

I’ve been inviting and supporting peace and high performance, with clients and colleagues on six continents, for more than 30 years.  The common threads are bringing people together and getting stuff done – getting the old work done easier and making new things possible.


In 1990, I was an Outward Bound wilderness course instructor with an MBA in Finance from a top-ranked business school. Since then, I’ve been recognized for my teaching, writing and facilitation of self-organization, team learning, and enterprise agility.

A tenacious learner, I get pretty excited about discovering, sharing and co-developing better ways of working together on things that matter. The “Inviting Organization” I first described in this website, in 1998, is still a useful roadmap for the biggest challenges facing organizations today.

My work with clients connects time-tested principles and leading edge practices — for transforming established organizations, engaging networks and communities, and guiding energetic startups.

I serve as a strategic partner to leaders and champions, innovators and learners, disrupters and transformers. Please have a look around – and contact me if I can help you cut a more direct path to the outcomes you really want.
