I bring a lifetime of diverse and challenging work and life experiences to the task of helping others to flourish. Born in an African village, son of mercenary diamond smuggler and a Jewish holocaust survivor my early years were shaped by tremendous challenges. Much of my drive to help others and my extraordinary resilience and optimism come from not just surviving, but thriving in the midst of the family, economic and political chaos of Africa at the time. Not content with the narrow focus of my initial vocation, Medicine, I moved to Sydney, Australia and studied Philosophy and Theology, with a view to being able to help people find answers to the truly big questions in life. Almost immediately it became clear to me that most people don't just need help finding the answers, but that we all need help to live the answers. This insight moved me to not just teach others about life, but to engage deeply in the work of coaching others to enable them to flourish as they implemented the timeless truths that underpin all of reality.
Leadership is lonely. It is challenging. Just when you think you've figured it out, the world has changed and the old solutions don't work any more.
I bring 20 years of leading organisations and teaching and coaching others to lead. This wealth of practical experience has been honed by a Masters Degree in Organisation Dynamics, study which has given me a critical edge in helping leaders dig deep beneath the surface of their teams and their organisations to uncover and work with the vast array of hidden forces which shape and influence leadership performance.
Leadership can be either the bottleneck on your growth, or the accelerant of your profitability and sustainability. My in-depth coaching can make all the difference in the world to you, and your organisation.
Almost all our work today is done in teams. Most organisations assume that all it takes for a team to work well is a clear goal and good intentions. Good luck with that! People working together have the potential for truly extraordinary accomplishments. I can help you unravel the mystery of high performing teams and lead you and your team on a journey of remarkable growth and transformation. There is no quick and easy way to build a great team, but I have had great success in helping teams make the leap from mediocrity and misery to mastery and accomplishment.
Inspiring. Positive. Realistic. Insightful and moving. Provocative. Brutally honest.
These are just some of the responses that audiences have had to my presentations. From the leaders of women's safe houses in the Congo, to board rooms in Sydney and Toronto, to NGO leaders in New York, Jerusalem and Cape Town, to sales teams in Nova Scotia, and churches on 5 continents I have been privileged to educate, inspire and transform thousands of groups over the past 2 decades. If you are looking for content with heart that leads to practical change, then I could be exactly what you are looking for.
