Be at your best. Lead at your best. Live at your best.

The best time to transform is now.

Life, including career, is a constant reinvention and recalibration.
That is the fun and proactive part.
When we stand still, frustration emerges making everything more tedious.
Life is about growth, expansion, and contribution.

Whether you want to be a better team leader, a better industry leader, or a better dog leader, it all comes back to one thing – Better Self-Leadership.
Let me support you on this adventurous journey!

For the past 21 years, I have guided executives, small business owners, and leaders in a variety of capacities and industries to reach the next level(s) of their success. Their definition of success is as unique as their paths:

  • be more effective in their role as a leader, hence supporting their team better and having them be more engaged
  • start / expand their business or their career promotion in a purposeful way,
  • create more balance between work and personal life,
  • get out of their own way and show up at a better version every day and many more.

All these goals require an upgrade on inner leadership, trust in oneself and others, as well as letting go of unproductive habits, mindsets, and approaches.

My pursuit of the same has lead me to studying, merging, simplifying, and customizing a variety of leadership and life methodologies and tools. My continuing education, critical thinking, and creativity are the keys to my and my clients’ success. 

My clients’ goals can be summed up as follows:

Got a dog? Get a life!

One way how I differentiate myself from other leadership coaches and trainers is that I include dogs in my programs. For over 20 years, I cared for, trained, and competed with dogs. And I have been a long-term volunteer with dog rescue groups. 

My joy of being with dogs led me to merge my knowledge about leadership development with my knowledge about dogs and their wisdom. They are our mentors, teachers, therapists, and guides pushing us to take leaps in order to move to the next step of our own development.

“Got a dog? Get a life!” is my way of supporting rescue groups and their adopting families to integrate their dogs and create peace and harmony in their homes.
