Only you can answer that, what the cost is of status quo, of not investing in growth and ideas, of delaying.

Business graveyards are filled with companies that didn’t evolve, that rested on their laurels, that took fortune for granted, that coasted.  (Sears, Kodak, Blockbuster…)

There is a reason for the expression that fortune favors the brave.

For more on working with me directly:  I work with talented, successful, brave senior leaders who invest in the future by investing in themselves.  My next openings are in February.

The Magnificent Leadership® Executive Dinners Program is an ideal place to share and learn best practices with peers, leverage your network, and have access to me all in one.  (And enjoy fabulous dinners at luxury venues.)  To inquire about an invitation:  And in celebration of 2020, I’m offering a 20% discount on this program until January 31st, 2020.  You’re also invited to nominate a peer and if they’re selected, you’ll get an additional 10% discount and they’ll get a 20% discount, as well.  Not a bad way to ring in the new year.  3 seats remain.

What does it take to have your best year ever?  Go here to listen to my just-released interview on William and Mary’s business and leadership podcast from their Center for Corporate Education.  Thanks to Ken White for the invitation!

If you’re wondering about the criteria for choosing an executive coach, my column on that subject was featured on TV NewsCheck by CEO Mary Collins of Media Financial Management Association.

I couldn’t be more thrilled to announce the re-launch of The Making Magnificence Project®, where I’ll be talking with extraordinary leaders to listening to their stories.  And I couldn’t be more excited to kick off with a 5 Year Retrospective Interview with Glen Tullman, Founder and Chairman of Livongo Health.  The last time I interviewed Glen, he was launching Livongo.  Fast forward and he’s taken it through an IPO and to a market cap that is currently slightly less than $2.5B.  Let’s see what he’s been up to in the last 5 years.  Stay tuned!

For CEOs and senior executives at, or approaching, their apex, my brand new Magnificent Leadership® Ascension is the program to support your growth as you grow your company.   To inquire about an invitation:   This is concierge private leadership guidance at its best.
