At the heart of my work is helping organizations unleash the potential of human connection. We are social beings! We thrive when our lives are grounded in relationship.

For over 15 years I’ve helped organizations improve communication, collaboration, and  productivity through intentional community building.  This includes consulting on the use of face-to-face small group and social media based strategies.

I also coach individuals helping them use digital tools to increase their reach, influence, and impact.  I work with a limited number of coaching clients with this being primarily by referral.


The Power of Connection

Despite the power of social media to connect,  for many people and many of our institutions, the technology is having a negative net impact:

  • Weak connections
  • Social isolation, social anxiety
  • Low commitment
  • Unhealthy conflict
  • Wasted time
  • Lower productivity

The quality of our relationships drives health, happiness, and productivity.  Prioritizing relationships, intentional community building, and face-to-face interaction offers many benefits including:

  • Deeper community
  • Improved communication
  • Higher commitment
  • Stronger collaborations
  • Accelerated innovation
  • Increased productivity

Interested in harnessing the power of human connection to advance your nonprofit, school, congregation, or socially conscious business?  Contact me below, and we can discuss the possibilities.
