I am an executive coach whose practice is informed by my clinical training and 25+ years of experience consulting to business leaders on organizational issues. My coaching is always mindful of the business strategy, business results, the organization’s stakeholders and Whole Systems thinking. I have coached individuals (upper-level managers to CEOs), intact teams and business units. Client companies have ranged from Fortune 500 to government agencies and not-for-profits. I believe that coaching can give executives a unique insight to the impact of their own behaviors on others and the organization.
My coaching may be a stand-alone situation where an individual needs guidance to strengthen leadership skills, prepare for advancement or address a specific behavioral issue. Or the coaching may be part of a more wide-spread Large System organizational effort to execute a merger, strategic change, work design or new business start-up. Consistent with the global nature of today’s business world, I have consulted to many individuals with global responsibilities and coached executives in a variety of countries in Europe, and leaders in India, Australia, Singapore, Brazil, UAE and Mexico.
My professional experience includes EVP of Consulting, Healthy Companies International; EVP of Consulting, BlessingWhite; EVP of Coaching, Right Management; and Managing Principal, Block Petrella Weisbord. I have a B.A. from University of California, Los Angeles, an M.A. from New School for Social Research, Graduate Division, New York City and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from University of Windsor, Canada. I am a registered Psychologist in New York State, a member of the American Psychological Association and the New Jersey Organization Development Network. I have served as Affiliated Faculty, Organizational Dynamics graduate studies at the University of Pennsylvania, long-term Invited Lecturer in Leadership in the Fordham University MBA program, and am currently Lead of the Executive Leadership Coaching Practice in the Doctoral Program of Strategic Leadership at Philadelphia University.
