I am passionate about helping people realize their full potential at work by understanding and managing their minds, which is where all great things begin. As a seasoned change management professional and strategic business partner, I support Fortune 100 companies develop and deliver customized, evidence-based cultural change solutions within diverse organizational environments. I've had the privilege and joy to lead change initiatives at multinational organizations spanning 4 continents - working with executive leaders, teams and individual contributors across many sectors including finance, IT, professional services, higher education, hospitality, law, oil and gas, and health care. I enjoy contributing to industry publications and speaking at HR and Leadership conferences about the impact of mind training on high-performing cultures. With an academic background in psychology and a personal practice in mindfulness and mind training for over 2 decades, I bring all of my experiences in executive leadership training, mindfulness in the workplace, workshop facilitation, human capital and performance coaching, and consultation to my role at Potential Project. Potential Project is a global organizational and leadership development, change management, consulting, and research firm that helps leading companies like Accenture, Cisco, IKEA, Microsoft, and Unilever create a more human world work. Together with my colleagues around the globe, we have helped over 550,000 individuals at more than 600 clients to adopt new ways of working and leading. Potential Project delivers solutions globally in 28 countries in 17 languages, in-person and digitally.
