growth without the stress, drama, or burnout


Your company is growing!

And, as leader, that is so rewarding.

But it’s also frustrating and exhausting. There is too much going on, it’s hard to get people to do the right things, and we’re putting in way too many hours.

You’re not alone. At some point, the way any growing company got successful can’t help it grow further.

We can fix that.


It’s simple.

I help you and your senior team get next-level results without the stress, drama, or burnout. We do this by improving your strength as a team: how you talk, listen, understand your roles, decide strategy, and steer the company. As the senior team thrives, so does the rest of the company.

We start where it makes sense, build up trust, pick the next thing, and repeat as needed. Along the way, we protect the secret sauce that makes your company special.

My role is coach to you and your team. Clients say they like how I get to know them, their team, and their business. They refer to me as their Wendy Rhoades, Ted Lasso, business therapist, catalyst, or–in one case–honorary founder and partner. My inside-outsider status helps you get relevant perspective. We also set you up with confidential peer support–often seen as getting the “cheat codes” for being a leader.


Let’s see.

If that resonates, let’s talk. We can explore what’s working in your company and what would make it even better. You will walk away with a game plan and we can decide whether it make sense for me to help.

Please let me know some times that would work for you. Or, if it’s easier, book a convenient time here.
