I'd be honored if you would take a few minutes to let me show you my approach to a unifying and undeniable truth: successful work is dependent on human beings and relationships. 


Workplaces Fit for Humans | TEDx Peachtree

Mis-Fit: Why We Aren’t Thriving at Work and What to Do About It | TEDxSanJuanIsland

How can you discover a job that really matches your needs? A job that provides meaning to your life? In this talk for TEDxSanJuanIsland I share how to find a job that feeds your spirit, your mind, and your heart, and provides options if you find yourself in a company or job where you are misfit.


Guess What, People Are Not Machines

People are not machines. And cajoling their greatness in order to make a company or an organization or a healthcare system or a government work, takes a powerful potion of science, courage, art, and magic.

Avoiding Mis-Fit: Finding Work That Brings Out Your Best

According to Gallup, one out of every two people at work feels disengaged.  The implications of this statistic are grave for employers, resulting in under performance re-work, and poor quality, as well as for individuals, who suffer frustration and disappointment at work on a daily basis.

There is a different way, for both individuals and employers.

It requires rigorous self-awareness and an entirely different set of questions to consider before saying yes to a new job or role. 

This dynamic, interactive keynote or workshop explores:

  • Assessing yourself to better understand your work needs

  • Why work fit (or misfit) can make or break our overall happiness

  • What to look for before taking a job to assess whether you will thrive there

  • Strategies for dealing with misfit when you can’t just leave

  • Tips for moving beyond “the offer” to pick a job that brings out your best


Fit Matters: The 6 Essential Elements Your Employees Need to Thrive at Work

Organizations are waking up to the recognition that work fit matters. In fact poor culture fit can cost an organization between 50-60% of the person’s annual salary.

People who enjoy their jobs are more likely to feel inspired by the goals and values of their company, exert effort, and stay employed with the organization.

Yet research shows that only 30 percent of Americans, and an even lower percentage of employees around the world, strongly agree that they have a chance to do what they do best every day at work.

There is much talk about organizational culture, authenticity and well-being, but no one is providing a road map for organizations to understand and improve their employees fit—until now.

This topic can also be delivered as a keynote or workshop tailored to help individuals looking to perform at their best and truly thrive at work.

Participants will learn:

  • Why work fit matters to people and organizations

  • Mastering the six essential elements of fit

  • Assessing yourself to better understand your work needs

  • Discerning what an organizational culture is before you agree to start a new job and what to do if you find yourself in the wrong place


Partnership: Hard Stuff of Life at Work

What brings organizations and teams to their knees is often not failed strategy or defective products, but rather the soft, squishy failures that occur when human beings cannot or will not work together well.

Broken partnerships, frayed trust, and hostile work relationships contribute to enormous costs, both monetary and personal, in workplaces large and small.

What are the tools that allow people to work together well? And how can leaders inoculate their companies with beliefs and behaviors that drive employees towards effective partnership rather than frayed relationships.

This high energy talk or workshop will highlight:

  • What research tells us about teams that achieve great results and why

  • The essential truths about “playing well with others” at work

  • The role managers play in facilitating great partnership

  • Why trust is broken and what it takes to repair

  • What is possible when social capital exists between people in organizations
