Since 1998, I have been an independent management / organization development consultant. I work closely with senior executives across a broad spectrum of organizations across the United States to help them leverage their human resources potential to increase organizational effectiveness and improve bottom-line results. The focus of my consulting practice includes: the design and facilitation of leadership development programs, support for reengineering / change management initiatives and executive coaching. Prior to 1998, I held a number of leadership positions within USF&G Insurance, including field operations and head of training and development. In addition to my consulting practice, I serve in an adjunct faculty position at UMBC Training Centers (Univ. of MD, Baltimore County) and at AMA (American Management Association). I speak at leadership conferences and am currently working on my first book, tentatively titled: Right-Brained Leadership. My consulting work includes assignments with diverse organizations such as: IMF (International Monetary Fund), US Marine Corps, Okinawa, CITGO Petroleum, ENSCO, National City Bank (now PNC Bank), NCUA (National Credit Union Agency), Greenheart International, and Spirit Ventures (Pershore, England). Through my affiliation with UMBC Training Centers, I facilitate leadership development programs with organizations that include: NGA (National Geo-Spatial Intelligence Agency), DISA (Defense Information Systems Agency), CeCom at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, and Social Security Administration. My international clients include work in: London, Rome, Bermuda, Okinawa and Singapore. To support my executive coaching efforts, I designed “North Star,” a web-based 360-degree feedback instrument. Over 1,000 executives have used “North Star” to gain perspective to support of their personal development efforts.
