I use my retirement to befriend leaders. I know firsthand the joys, sorrows, crises, successes, and failures accompanying the act of leading. More importantly, I realized how I led and how they led significantly impacted whether people discovered purpose and meaning in life and work.
I became intrigued with the power of good leaders and the devastation engendered by mediocre and bad leaders. So, during my mid-career graduate program, I shifted my focus to look at leadership in every venue where people work. The focus has taken me into different industries to learn and test what I observed about leaders.
I became an executive coach and leadership development specialist. I have conducted social research for large and small organizations designed to explain why certain behaviors routinely occur. I work with leaders in business and the non-profit world. Being in these different settings confirms how important it is to employee morale/engagement and organizational outputs to have good leadership. I enjoy helping women and men leverage their strengths, discover the power of spirituality, expand their leadership capacity, and exercise awareness of how their personal style impacts those around them.
Janice and I enjoy the cumulative wonder of 47 years of marriage and the delight of a growing number of grandchildren. One of our delights is playing host to Air BnB guests and to the friends who come to enjoy time with us and the gorgeous view.
