"Take away my people, but leave my factories, and soon grass will grow on the factory floors. Take away my factories, but leave my people, and soon we will have a new and better factory." Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919)

Ignite the Spark
Seminars with a focus on leadership, change management and communications that move people to action. My seminars are highly interactive with an emphasis on experiential learning. Participants not only acquire new skills, but also an eagerness to put these into practice. Participants leave feeling a greater degree of empowerment.
Personalized management coaching with a focus on communication and leadership skills. I work with people at all levels in an organization, not only to help them acquire new management skills, but also to help them become more confident about the value they provide, accept ownership of their sphere of influence and take pride in their work.
Action Based Learning
A growing catalog of action-based, team-building seminar experiences. These are group activities and seminar formats providing educational content in an entertaining manner that are great for corporate retreats.
I am an experienced executive trainer, consultant, coach and educator with a demonstrated history of forging stimulating and transformative learning experiences.
In the more than twenty years I have worked in higher education and management consulting, I have been engaged in many business fields but my true interest lies in organizational development issues. I have seen and experienced first hand the impact - both good and bad - that leadership and organizational culture have on employee morale, commitment, personal health and, ultimately, the organization's bottom line.
Having lived, studied and worked in Europe, the United States and Asia, I bring a multi-cultural perspective to anything I do. Being half-Austrian and half-American, I am bilingual and can offer all seminars and coaching sessions in either language.
