What we do
One of my guiding principles is that it is not about the job titles we cloak ourselves in or what we think we want to BE when we grow up. Instead, I believe that it is more about what we want to DO with our lives!
I have spent a lifetime DO’ing the work to help people have more success with work and more importantly with changes in work. Why? I believed that people who experience personal, career and professional growth, become the cornerstones of stronger groups, communities and institutions. When organizations, groups or communities evolve and change, they benefit from the resulting enhanced engagement by individuals and everyone wins! We believe that when we are able to sustain our whole selves, we can better sustain our families and by extension, our communities.
I speak and write on the future of work, workers and workplaces. Book an introductory, free 15-minute chat with me if you are curious about which of the following services could be of value to your organization.
Educator and Researcher on Workplace Initiatives Around Automation
This future of work, workers and automated workplaces is being designed and imagined right now! It is important to us that all voices are acknowledged and included in redesign initiatives. I believe that doing meaningful work is foundational to being human and so individually and collectively, it has never been more important to stay aware and stay inclusive. My research framework (P.O.S.T.) could help individuals and organizations maneuver effectively through the next workplace transformations. I LOVE working with career changers and those who are retooling due to technology and automation.
Trusted Business Advisor on Diversity Recruiting Initiatives
How many times have you read information on an organization’s website or in their marketing collateral about their inclusive environment, only to talk to an employee at the company and find out that the inclusive strategy doesn’t really exist? If you spend time in career center operations, working in HR and running two niche recruiting job boards for over a decade, like I have, you hear the real behind-the-scenes stories all the time. These workplace realities can be improved and there can be authentic and meaningful ways of connecting with and recruiting potential candidates that will reinforce your brand as truly inclusive.
