Step Into Your Authority

Self-doubt. Isolation. Hubris. These are a few of the gremlins that creep up on well-meaning leaders in all walks of life. Knowing where your authority comes from and how to be with it can bring focus, meaning and creativity to your leadership.
I can help you understand your authority, and use it ethically to lead people, projects and causes.



I’m an executive coach, leadership and organizational consultant. I have been a student and practitioner of authority for more than 15 years. I would be delighted to partner you in standing in your authority – and making big ideas, functional teams and creative leadership happen.

Professional Authority

Are your efforts to lead mitigated by a constant need to put out fires?

— Lao Tzu

When yoga, therapy and coffee are no longer helping you through the changes, or in your efforts to find satisfying love, meaningful work, or zest for life, you could be ready to step into your authority via personal authority mentoring.
