It doesn't have to be this way.
Ready to get started?
As a skilled consultant and industry veteran, I am your trusted advisor - on your side to help you create a high-performing technical organization.
Are you frustrated that...
...your best programmers are leaving for more 'meaningful' work?
...your senior engineers bicker endlessly over technical minutiae?
...your Team Leads fight with the Product Managers?
...new managers hide from conflict?
...leaders don't address problems while they are small?
...you have to be in the middle of every project for it to move forward?
...you don't have all the answers?
Is your organization suffering from:
- Low team engagement and motivation
- Broken or stuck software delivery process
- Inadequate leadership skills at some levels of the org
- High programmer burn-out or turn-over
- Inadequate training for new tech-leads or software mangers
- Problems working with the product management group
- Feeling stuck in sticky, persistent people problems of all types, at all levels
I offer expertise in the areas of:
- Building effective, happy, high-performing software teams
- Developing technical managers and leaders
- Creating psychological safety in organizations
- Teaching and coaching groups to perform better together
- Creating organizations which learn from their work
- Building high-performing, empathetic leaders at all levels of the organization
My philosophies of work are:
- One's relationship with their boss impacts their performance, satisfaction, and tenure
- Everyone wants to fully contribute and create the best work of their lives
- Changing the mental models and patterns of work offer the greatest levers for positive change
- The problem is not the problem - coping is.
- Leadership is a skill which everyone can master
I fully stand behind my work. If you are not 100% satisfied I will refund your money immediately, no questions asked.
