Ignite your creative power and become the leader you were born to be.

Every creative fire requires a spark.

When you were young, you were very close to your creativity.  The gateway to what would come next was open and you were optimistic about the future.  Slowly, judgement crept in and clouded your thinking. You experienced self-doubt. You misplaced your ability to find unique solutions.  The gateway to creativity started to close.

As creativity becomes one of the most in-demand skills in modern business, you realize you need to reclaim it.  You can see that you are closer to creativity when you’re empowered, and further from it when you’re riddled with fear.  You know that when you re-adopt a practice of creativity as an adult, a brand new way of working will become yours for good.

“The future depends on what you do today.”   

Mahatma Gandhi 

Creativity is the super skill that creates legendary leaders.

And creativity is the gateway to the essential skills needed in business today and for the future.

When I work with you, the individual leader, I focus on helping you access your innate creativity and use it to facilitate the mastery of the most essential executive skills.  Then we design a polished personal leadership development plan with a 12-18 month strategy to chart your progress and provide documentation for you and your organization.

When I work with your team, I focus on leveraging your group’s unique combination of creativity and we determine a path for change and strategic group cohesion starting with your specific creative foundation.  We co-design an intervention complete with a written strategy and 30/60/90 day action plan and steps for implementation.

Let me show you how to begin.

Don’t think you’re creative?

I’ll prove it to you.

We are born wide open and intensely creative.  Gradually, it’s cultured out of us and replaced with skills and thinking that put us in a standardized, homogenized way of thinking.  Ranked as one of the most critical business skills for 2020 and the future, most business leaders don’t know how to access it, harness it, or use it.

Reconnecting with your creativity allows you to:

  • Better understand yourself and others
  • Communicate with an elevated sense of confidence
  • Form stronger professional relationships (and maintain them more effectively)
  • Create strategic plans with more ease and efficacy
  • Proficiently manage conflict
  • Effortlessly pivot when change is required
  • Coach and mentor those you manage
  • Feel fully prepared for the future and what it holds
