Join Me!

I’m very passionate about the coaching that I do. In addition to that, I love having the conversations and sharing the insights I’ve collected throughout my life.

You own the agenda in a coaching conversation – we aim for your goals and focus on the experiences you want to create. When I’m speaking, I’m sharing my experiences and knowledge for you to absorb and integrate. As always – the choice is yours as to how you will experiment going forward.

Culture/Employee Retention
Mastering the ABCs.

Hosted By: Barry County Chamber & EDA

17 November 2021,
12:00 – 1:00pm ET (Virtual)

Establishing and maintaining your ideal culture can feel like you are grasping at clouds. You can see it and know it exists – and still feel like it’s inaccessible. Your employees know culture by what they feel, especially in times of change or transformation. You may not be able to control all the external factors yet you do have influence over the employee attitudes and behaviors inside.

In this session, we will discuss key aspects of designing the culture you want — and then taking the meaningful steps of implementation and sustainability. Learn how to integrate the ABCs of culture into your organization so you are a place where people want to stay – and join – as an employer of choice.

Activating the
Coaching Capability

Hosted By: Detroit Chapter
Association for Talent Development (ATD)

12 October 2021,
5:00 – 7:00pm ET (Virtual)

Everywhere you turn, you are likely hearing about coaching. You might be curious about what that really means in general – and specifically for you and your career. Let’s discuss how growing your knowledge and skills around coaching can amplify the impact of your other capabilities.

This session will give attendees perspective about how coaching capabilities can have an impact from any seat. You will get perspective on how things look different when you are coaching from your role versus coaching is your role.

Attracting and Retaining Talented People

Hosted By: MEECA

13 October 2021,
10:00 – 11:00am ET (Virtual)

When you are looking to attract or retain talent in your organization, you have a story to tell. It’s the true story of the value you provide through your products and services, the commitment you make to your employees, and the support you give them as members of the team. It might be delivered as a full presentation or in bits and pieces as opportunities arise. What matters is that you know the plot – and that you share the story with others. Consistently. Join in to talk about how to tell the story of your organization in a way that is authentic and rings true.

Be Heard Even When You Whisper

Coalition of Minority Professional Engineering Societies

8 May 2021

Imagine if you believed the following: When you are driving your own career, you aren’t allowing others to design the vehicle, the road, or the destination. Others get input and have perspective – with your permission.

In this session, you will be invited to believe it – at least a little bit more if not entirely. We will work toward getting that voice inside your head to move from critical toward insightful, discuss a framework to give your work a voice, and move fully into the driver seat for your career.

Thriving as an Introverted Skeptic in a Shortcut World

Live Discussion with Dan Manning, #HumanIntelligence

10 March 2021

You might be an Introverted Skeptic if:
~ You recharge your energy when you are alone or small groups
~ You get a little choosy about which words you share – and with whom
~ You quickly identify what’s likely to break or be inefficient about ideas and solutions – and motivated to discover a fix

That also means you might get a certain kind of feedback that you could ‘change a few things’ about how you interact with people and projects. Many of those suggestions and bits of (intended to be) constructive feedback might feel like shortcuts that fail to meet the need? Maybe you feel like you are expected to be someone else at work to fit with the expectations.Imagine if you could address that feedback – even if it’s only from the voice inside your head – and lead like you?
