Thank you for taking time to visit my website.


I invite you to embrace your everyday courage and the concept of courageous leadership into your workplace–it’s an INside job!

Known as The Courage Expert and innovator of StuckThinking™, I am the principal of a 21-year-old human potential consulting firm based in Denver, Colorado and a courage coach. With over twenty years of original research in integrating courage behaviors, courageous leadership, women’s courage and non-gender integral levels of courage consciousness, I focus on the traps and tricks of the human condition such as denial (and at appropriate times, I apply the Enneagram or Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®). I believe that integrating courage actions at work leads to a more naturally propelled and fulfilled employee, resulting in reduced attrition, accelerated synergistic production and improved bottom-line performance. The outcome for leadership development: there is a direct correlation between the organization’s success and courage quotient.
