Having worked in and with organizations for 25+ years, in various professional roles and across many industries and countries, I would sum up my work as a changemaker who cares deeply about eliminating suffering in organizations and creating healthier workplaces that can have a more significant, positive impact in the world. I do executive and team coaching and consulting and I currently teach leadership, coaching, and team coaching in several global programs in Europe, Asia, and the U.S., including at the University of Miami and the National University of Singapore, School of Medicine. My organizational experience combined with my varied studies in human potential and philosophy have resulted in a unique world view and approach to working with others and is the focus of my forthcoming book.
