Leadership as we know it is changing. In my travels and my research I see that traditional forms of leadership are going by the wayside as new leadership "bubbles up around the edges" of emerging societies and organizations enabled by a dizzying array of technology and platforms. Decisions are seldom made by a single person anymore. They are made by groups, developed by consensus, and grown in a complex, inter-connected world.
Does this mean that the average person has no chance to make a difference? Emphatically not! In fact it means that every person, every where, has the opportunity to make a difference right where they are. Recall the words of 1960s author, Frank Herbert, "No matter how exotic human civilization becomes, no matter the developments of life and society nor the complexity of the machine/ human interface, there always come interludes of lonely power when the course of humankind, the very future of humankind, depends upon the relatively simple actions of single individuals.”
I am fascinated and excited by the possibilities of leadership development and I want to share that fascination with you and your team or organization.
To every client engagement I bring more than 40 years of perspective gained from leadership experience at executive levels of state, federal, and local government, non-profit boards, and for-profit businesses. I’m a Vietnam-era Veteran with 20 years of distinguished service as both an enlisted airman and senior signals intelligence systems officer and commander with the US Air Force.
I facilitate and coach domestic and international leadership workshops and seminars. My work takes me around the world to villages, towns, universities and businesses in Europe, Asia, Central America, Central Asia and others. I’ve used John Maxwell’s books and materials for years. It’s my privilege now to offer them to you as a member of the John Maxwell Team.
I hold a BA in Communications, a MSSci in International Relations, and am wrapping up a Ph.D. in Leadership Studies. What that means is that I bring a liberal arts based global perspective to a traditionally business-oriented discipline.
