I am a Relationship and Teamwork Coach and have worked for many Fortune 100 companies like Hewlett-Packard, Sun Microsystems, Apple, and GE. For nine years I was on the full-time graduate faculty at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, teaching group and organizational development, community development, and family and couples therapy.I am a professional speaker on such topics as Change, Conflict, Teamwork, Negotiation, and Bringing Out the Best in People.
I own my own company, Getting Real Resources. Here my goal is to make honest communication easier and safer so that people are not afraid to speak truthfully to each other, to give each other the crucial information and feedback they need to make good decisions and build healthy, nourishing relationships. As part of this work, an organizational system needs to be able to see itself as a whole system and to see any norms it may have operating that inhibits the free flow of information (honesty). I help organizations learn to be more self-aware and self reflective, so the system can see whether its norms and reward systems support its mission, goals and values.
