In a word, my professional work is about transformation. I seem to be wired to help people–and systems–change. I am drawn to cutting edge 'technologies' for coaching and developing organizations, leaders and teams. I have worked as an organizational change coach and consultant for more than 20 years, working with Fortune 500, small businesses and non-profits. For 12 years I have specialized in large-scale Agile transformation efforts, working with numerous organizations, leaders, and dozens and dozens of teams in that time.

I was trained as a Team and Organizational Coach, in Co-Active leadership, and in executive coaching, organizational behavior, organization change and consciousness transformation. I am a Certified Organization and Relationship Systems Coach (ORSCC), a Certified Professional Facilitator (CPF), and a Certified Scrum Master (CSM). I am currently writing a book in the Mike Cohn series called Coaching in the Agile Enterprise. An excerpt of that book will be released in Fall 2013.
