Programs & Services
For more than 15 years, I’ve worked with leading organizations—law firms, corporations, trade associations, government entities, business and law schools—to provide students, new employees, and established professionals with the non-technical skills they need to succeed.
My Professionalism Series targets new workforce entrants and others who are making the transition from school to work. Some of my clients schedule the entire series of four one-hour interactive programs. Others purchase individual sessions. Specific topics include: professionalism, business etiquette, time management, and communicating and working with others.
The DISC behavioral style assessment tool helps users enhance their self-awareness, including the behaviors they are likely to rely upon, especially when they encounter stress. My programs start with building self-knowledge and then advance to helping participants learn how to flex to others’ styles. At the end of a 90-minute session, participants know how to effectively communicate with others who they encounter at work, at home, and in their communities.
Many clients use my basic DISC program to help new employees understand the work style preferences of supervisors and support staff. I have created customized versions of this program to teach more seasoned professionals how to manage juniors, including how to provide effective feedback based on the junior’s behavioral style preference. Some clients incorporate my DISC training into their organization’s business development initiatives.
The Clifton StrengthsFinder self-assessment tool is premised on a simple belief that no one person can be anything they want to be. (Even if I stared at a calculus problem daily, I would never become a mathematical genius.) However, all of us can be a lot more of who we already are. To the extent we hone our natural talents, we create unique strengths that allow us to provide near-perfect performance on a regular basis. My Strengths-based programs help individuals understand their greatest talents and transform them into strengths.
Many of my law school clients use my Strengths-based program to help prepare students for job searches and interviews. When working with established professionals, I’ve used Strengths-based content to help professionals develop personal brands that clarify why “they’re the ones to pick.” Managers, supervisors, and teams benefit from Strengths-based training that identifies both the naturally occurring strengths of a group as well as deficits that may exist. If your organization wants and needs to retain its best performers, consider Strengths-based training.
I am a Gallup-certified StrengthsFinder coach.

In addition to programming, I provide intensive one-on-one coaching services to individual professionals.
I have also worked with organizations to identify their unique Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (a SWOT analysis) and have identified strategies those entities can use to build on potentialities and respond to concerns.
