Race & Social Justice

My work surrounding race and social justice tends to be with organizations on a periodic basis.  That period may be weekly, monthly or annually.  I also work with small groups for a one-time discussion to get them started in the subject.  

Business & Profitability

The firms with which I have worked are usually seeking ways to improve some aspect of their business activities.  Sometimes organizations want to change or establish culture, and request that I facilitate their plan for that.  Often I am asked to analyze business activities and identify areas to increase efficiency and effectiveness.  I usually respond by recommending work in three core areas: people, processes and profits.  


Whether I speak as a guest at a graduation or facilitate a discussion about how to lead, I always endorse the tenets of servant leadership, unless I am requested to focus on a different approach.  When working with young people, I focus on their decisions and how they think, rather than telling them what to think.
