I enjoy forming and coaching leaders who empower people and teams to impact the systems of their organizations or churches, transforming that church, business or organization with a positive attitude that has an eye for quality, is efficient, productive, successful, dynamic and sensitive to the people/teams they lead, and most importantly, responsive to the needs of their clients or church membership that they serve.
