Do you want to transform how your company approaches leadership? Book me to speak to or train your employees.

The best way to accomplish an organizational transformation is to partner with a coach who designs, implements, and facilitates workshops, leadership trainings, and programs for organizations of all sizes. These events inspire real-time behavior changes that will support and bolster the attendees’ achievements, as well as the success of the company.

Groups of all sizes also benefit significantly from a highly-engaging speaker who can inspire change and provide ideas that can be immediately implemented personally or in the audience’s organizations. Speaking topics include, but are not limited to: conscious leadership, courage-building, mindfulness, and relationship building.


About Dare to Lead™

Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage-building program designed to be facilitated by organizational development professionals.

Brené is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Foundation – Brené Brown Endowed Chair at The Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy, and most recently completed a seven-year study on courageous leadership. She is the author of five #1 New York Times bestsellers: The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, Rising Strong, Braving the Wilderness, and Dare to Lead, which also debuted at #1 on The Wall Street Journal and Publisher’s Weekly lists.

The most significant finding from Brené’s latest research is that courage is a collection of four skill sets that are teachable, measurable, and observable. The Dare to Lead™ program focuses on developing these courage-building skills through workshops, trainings and coaching to help individuals, teams and organizations move from armored leadership to daring leadership.

About Conversational Intelligence®

Think about the amount of conversations you have on a daily basis. What if you could develop skills to radically transform how your brain processes that communication, building a better approach to develop deeper connectivity with others? 

Now, think about how many conversations take place in a single organization on an average day. By implementing these strategies, leaders and their teams are better able to discover their own awareness and understand how to express those feelings appropriately, which elevates individual communication and transforms company culture.

Conversational Intelligence®, based on neuroscience research, helps to reframe conversational patterns in an individual’s brain. The C-IQ program elevates a person’s oxytocin—the building blocks for connection—and lowers cortisol, which inhibits the feelings of fear and distrust. 

Conversational Intelligence® is a “know-how” system, not a “how-to” approach, and because of this, implementation can create a lasting and profound shift in how your organization communicates from within, and also with outside sources, like your clients and counterparts.
