Helping business leaders Create Dream Teams.
Business leaders bring me in when they want people to work better together.
When we work as a team, we work as one for the good of the whole. We do astonishing things. In place of drama, politics, and confusion is a single-minded entity—the team. That’s how a Dream Team gets more done in less time and with less cost.
Teamwork increases productivity, engagement, & personal fulfillment.
Finding a better way.
When I was little, I was the kid at the library with a stack of books that rivaled my height. Even at a young age I was driven to understand how things work and the library was my candy store.
As an adult, my appetite for learning guided my career to thriving restaurants, rocketing startups, and international Fortune 500 companies.
Along the way I increasingly focused on people. Specifically, learning how to create highly-engaged, job-loving teams. This happened after repeatedly seeing how much more people contribute when they really gel as a team—even people’s health improves!
Hands-on experience has taught me a lot about what works, what doesn’t, and how to scale success.
The secret to creating a Dream Team is revealed in the answers to questions, such as:
- Why do we do what we do?
- What sparks innovation & creativity?
- How does motivation work?
- How does a culture form?
- How can ordinary people achieve extraordinary results?
The answers I’ve found might surprise you.

Fueling extraordinary outcomes.
At its heart, business is a story about people helping people.
But sadly, people in many organizations suffer because their leaders make decisions without knowing the whole story—a common side effect of growth. Growth creates distance. Distance turns customers into revenue targets & employees into resources. Gaps in the story are unconsciously filled with bias, opinion, & speculation.
Friction is the consequence, and that friction chokes employee engagement & customer loyalty.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Small business is different. Small business leaders look their customers & employees in the eye. They share experiences, stories.
Stories bridge distance.
Shared stories can unite business leaders, employees, & customers—making us care deeply for one another.
Every business is built on stories that can improve quality, efficiency, & effectiveness—inspire greatness!
Your stories are harnessed throughout my process to create something extraordinary, a Dream Team.
