A Personal Experience.

“Albert Einstein once said, ‘The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.’ I have made it my business to relate this concept to understand the bigger gift of leadership.”


My roots in speaking come into play by understanding that leadership is not rooted in the small individual definition that most people hold themselves to be. Each of us is a much larger presence when rooted in the very intuition referenced by Albert Einstein. Personal honors mean little in a world of intuitive awareness.

What I believe separates me from other leadership speakers is the nesting of my message in personal experience. It’s that richness in intimacy that allows for a much more impactful talk. When I speak to you as an audience, my main goal is that you will feel the experience and the intuitive framework that forms this bigger picture called Awakened Leadership.

Over the years I have listened to the wisdom of the seasoned leaders that surrounded me. By listening carefully to the words of my peers and mentors, I was able grasp and understand that there was something much bigger in the exercise of leadership that most understood. My hope is that you get the adequate information you need to make the best decision possible.


Distilling the Leadership Challenge

The leadership world today is bubbling with new and continuing discoveries related to the internal maturity of our leaders. While this literature is replete with observation, there are few voices of those who have actually walked the path. As a result, there is much confusion when undertaking the leadership challenge for organizations.

I share with audiences that the first major question today’s executives must answer if they wish to instill a lasting brand of leadership – whether to develop the maturity of their people, or to install a variety of systems and procedures that do nothing to foster personal development.

By sharing stories from my book Awakened Leadership, I help people to:

  • Break free from the reactive behaviors that hold them back
  • Understand the difference between distributing content and “holding space”
  •  Discover their need for personal maturity so they become the best leaders they can be

Here’s What Others Are Saying

“There’s a new tide rising in the world of leadership. It’s built upon the realization that strategies, techniques and processes that don’t begin at the level of personal awakening serve as little more than band-aids on the corpus of the status quo. Awakened Leadership is a rally cry to go deeper and get more personal, then watch the shift that happens on an individual level ripple out to the organization.”
