CEO at Breakfast Leadership, Inc

Toronto, Canada

I launched because I observed too many healthcare leaders and managers burnout due to a lack of boundaries.

I saw how they sacrificed their own happiness for the sake of their career. I noticed the sorrow in their eyes after their partner left them. I also faced the empty void in their glance when they went right into burnout mode.

And the truth is, it doesn't have to be this way. All of this is avoidable.

As the thought leader on boundaries, I show senior leaders, managers and teams how to establish boundaries in their work and personal lives, so that they can get their time and life back. They’ll learn how to accomplish more, by doing less, which will save their careers and possibly their lives.

My proven boundary setting system, provides a clear, easy to implement strategy so that high achievers can now accomplish more, by doing less.

Below is the link to a free 20 minute Breakfast Leadership call, where I assist everybody who is struggling with boundaries or wants to prevent a burnout:
