BArbara discusses leadership challenges

Barbara was asked what responsibility leaders hold for their own behavior and that of their organization. Leaders have a need to guard their words and actions as well as develop the culture of the organization by having clarity, setting boundaries and defining expectations.

Inspiring messages to engage, educate, energize, and focus.  Sought after professional speaker with over 20 years of presenting at conferences, organization, and departmental meetings.*



Development remains at the top of the desired list for all. Having developed and facilitated workshops for all levels of leadership with pragmatic and targeted growth as the goal, creating a learning environment with powerful outcomes is something I know well.  A purposeful workshop, lunch-n-learn, or expanded department meeting with laser-focused topics are effective solutions for providing learning.


Your Coach

Development begins with understanding the place where one is today, developing a plan and having support as the plan unfolds. Letting the wind blow you where it may in career decisions results in unfulfilled dreams, wondering what happened and the search for purpose.

 ...Sure, on paper the workshop looked good, but no one attending expected much to change. After all, we communicate every day. What was there to learn? Except Barbara, who simply waited for feedback, and the boss who was still hoping for something, anything to change from a 90-minute lunch workshop. They didn’t have to wait long.
