While exploration and development and building maps to summits are  what I help people and teams and organizations work toward, there is always a bigger, deeper story to recognize, consider, and perhaps unpack.

Research and real life show us that others, environment, context, the bigger picture and story must be part of the exploration. 

My approach is a great fit for those who are ready to get wholeheartedly honest about

  • the WHY behind your day-to-day choices
  • whether your version of success is congruent with your values and your day-to-day choices
  • potentially uncomfortable parts of the bigger picture and whether or not that is working
  • recognition that others’ maps may include different routes leading to the same summit
…because going HIGHER means going D E E P E R

D: Dedication

to the process. Your investment of time and energy. Some people spend much of their process right here discovering beliefs and assumptions that may be blocking progress straight from the trailhead.

E: Exploration

We start with a unique comprehensive assessment tailored to your identified goals giving us insight into your personal style, work style, decision making style, approach to difficulty, and how to capitalize your strengths towards achieving your goals.

E: Enlisting

of others. The input of trusted others on your personal and professional team is vital and valuable to maximize your process. In the workspace or personal life, advisor input is vital. I will guide you or your team through a 360-degree process to glean feedback from colleagues, family, and friends to help us realize what might work BETTER.

P: Practice

AKA Potentiate. Better stated: Put it all out there! Done well, this means taking time, reflecting, looking inward…a little more deeply. And then we use what we find for FORWARD. This is about executing, realizing, moving, and doing. And your trek guide (that’s me!) is there to mobilize, rally, and reinforce with you, the team, and the organization.

E: Emerge

The best metaphor here is the chrysalis, for individuals, teams, and organizations. We will both know when you are ready to emerge with goals reached, vision realized, and your day-to-day life, work, purpose and leadership reflecting the truest you.

R: Review

This is not just the last step. It is a life and work and leadership discipline and rhythm. We will strategize the best way for you or the team to continue your growth. The process continues. We ensure you have a plan for next steps and that your new skills, insights, and practices have had plenty of boots- on- the- trail, breaking in.
