My Purpose In Life:

To empower people to live, love, and lead in the story they were made for by developing healthy habits that bridge their identity and dreams because everyone should live a meaningful life.

My Backstory.

As a storyteller I’ve had the opportunity to help many companies tell great stories over the past two decades.   I also got the opportunity to look “behind the curtain” into their day to day business.

What I saw broke my heart and challenged my chosen profession.

I saw a lot of unhealthy, broken cultures where people were just desperately trying to survive…and marketing was an attempt to make things better.

The people I love serving didn’t need marketing help.  As a matter of fact, focusing on marketing was hurting most of their businesses…not growing them.

I made a life changing decision.  I started helping leaders get clarity about their actual story, and began seeing the impact of healthy culture in organizations…and it’s way bigger and longer lasting than a well told marketing campaign.

So, that’s what I do. I help leaders create meaningful, measurable cultures.

I saw a lot of unhealthy, broken cultures where people were just desperately trying to survive…and marketing was an attempt to make things better.

I met so many leaders who were overwhelmed, lost, and trying their best to keep the company alive and/or growing; but they had lost their passion or didn’t know how to lead people well.

They needed clarity on who they were, where they were going, and a clear, measurable way to get there.

My Approach.

Culture is a powerful word being carelessly tossed around, applauded at conferences, and usually talked about in the context of contentment, or through the HR lens of benefits and rewards.

The reality?

Culture isn’t some mythical unicorn roaming the halls of cool tech companies and V.C. funded dreams.

It’s real.  It’s tangible.  And your people want you to lead it.

Over the past 15+ years I’ve developed and refined the IDH Framework for healthy culture, and it’s my approach.  Every company is unique, so the journey will be unique, but I focus on three areas to create culture.

  1. Identity – This is who you are asking people to wave the banner of.  Our shared identity in social groups (work is one) is predictive to whether or not we will achieve our goals.
  2. Dreams – This is the big picture you’re painting for your people.  It has to be vivid, tangible, and attainable.
  3. Habits – Habits are what we would see if we put your culture under a microscope.  Creating keystone habits in crucial areas will become lead indicators to knowing you are on track to achieve your dreams.
