I’m a get-off-your-tush get-it-done, powerfully intuitive kind of coach. I worked for 25 years in public education in the San Francisco Bay Area — 15 years running schools, elementary, middle then high school. I understand bureaucracy and systematic stagnation as well as achieving the most with chronically overwhelmed staffs. Did you know that the common approach to these challenges is often all wrong?
Let's get MOVING!
I incorporate Open Floor movement practices into facilitation, training and coaching sessions when appropriate. Through movement and inquiry, we build community and draw upon the full intelligence of individuals and groups.
There is a way beyond your current situation.
