As an organizational leader and coach, I specialize in facilitating dynamic, actionable learning experiences and energizing the conversation around agile strategies and principles to support self-organized, highly motivated teams. With a bit of humor and more than 20 years of experience in tech, I write quick, bite-size experience stories (what I call a “hustleberry”) that reflect my thoughts on topics relevant to modern leadership: Creativity, humility, emotional intelligence, feedback, safety, trust, and servant-leadership, among others. Occasionally a Hustleberry post is contributed by a guest writer who kindly shares their wit and wisdom.
