Many companies don't have a learning and development professional in-house and existing HR staff have their hands full with payroll, benefits, recruiting and fielding personnel complaints. Employees fall between the cracks, as few organizations have a strategy for what to do with people once they're hired, or the means to implement it. To me, this is an enormous, wasted opportunity!

With a mission to help others be and do better, I work directly with business owners and their HR leaders to develop custom, practical and strategic solutions that solve common challenges associated with human beings working together. Using Predictive Index's data-driven tools, my clients enjoy the ability to build high performing teams, hire "right" every time, coach for greater performance, and be tuned into engagement metrics.

I round it out by delivering workshops on critical skills and best practices all managers need to know with a unique approach to learning that goes beyond the usual "check the box" event that rarely yields the desired outcomes or ROI. With 20+ years' experience in Learning & Development I provide all the advantages of having an L&D team and Chief Learning Officer without the full-time cost or commitment.

If you think it's expensive to develop someone and have them leave, what does it cost you to not develop someone and have them stay?
