In a word, my life’s work is about transformation. I am wired to help people and systems change, beginning with myself. Drawn to cutting edge ‘technologies’ for coaching organizations, leaders and teams, I have been an organizational change coach and consultant for more than 25 years, working in Fortune 1000 to small businesses.

I have specialized in large-scale Agile transformations since 2001, continuing to learn and benefit from many great teachers. Training as an Organizational Systems Coach created a foundation for my approach, as well as in executive coaching, organizational change, systems methods and consciousness transformation. A Co-active leadership program was particularly influential in my own leadership journey, teaching me the difference between intention and impact. In 2010, I co-founded the Agile Coaching Institute with Lyssa Adkins. I was CEO there until having accomplished the mission, we sold the company in 2017. I co-founded Trans4mation in 2016 with Michele Madore. Formal credentials include Certified Organization and Relationship Systems Coach (ORSCC), Certified Professional Facilitator (CPF), ICAgile Expert in Agile Coaching (ICE-AC), SAFe Program Consultant (SPC) and Certified Scrum Master (CSM). Michele and I are currently finishing work on a book in the Mike Cohn series called Transformation! Using the Integral Agile Transformation Framework™ to Achieve Breakthrough Results. An excerpt of that book, introducing the Integral Agile Transformation Framework, was released in January 2014.
