Clients like you come to me partly because I have been writing, speaking, teaching and coaching about some of the world’s most difficult personal and societal challenges for many years. I work with CEOs, politicians, philanthropists, public figures, entrepreneurs, founders, creative professionals, best-selling authors, coaches and therapists.
But what distinguishes my clients–including you, if we choose to work together–is their understanding that to truly transform their work and personal worlds, they have to transform themselves.
To work with me, you would have fascinating challenges to deal with–yes–but perhaps even more important than the current dilemma are your aspirations: 1. To vastly expand your capability–to grow emotionally, psychologically, spiritually; and 2. To stimulate similar transformations in those around you, in your teams, your communities and your world.
My clients work in fields as diverse as law, media, advertising and philanthropy (I also help and train other coaches and therapists). Client challenges are often rooted in issues of communication, power dynamics, team cohesion and performance, evolving company culture, personal and work relationships, self-care, expanded personal growth and a thirst for meaning and purpose. Working with me, my clients find solutions to their challenges but also joy, presence, excitement, connection and meaning.
Recently, I have helped:
◆ A COO needing to adapt their leadership to a new culture ◆ A CEO navigating pandemic-era staff challenges ◆ A famous TV actor transitioning into directing ◆ A recently-divorced philanthropist looking for new direction ◆ A Hollywood movie producer negotiating contract terms with major movie star ◆ A senior ad executive balancing career with supporting a disabled child ◆ A Harvard MBA transitioning into a more meaningful career
◆ A senior investment banker healing their marriage after infidelity ◆ A best-selling political author adjusting to the demands of new-found fame ◆ A senior executive needing to demonstrate value to an incoming CEO after company acquisition ◆ A serial silicon valley founder moving from stress to balance and impact ◆ A start-up founder disentangling their romantic relationship with their co-founder.

What makes me special as a coach and advisor is the range of my work and life experience, the depth of my inner growth, and the personal qualities I have spent decades developing (read more about me personally here). My clients say I listen to and understand them better than they have ever experienced. They say I am the most non-judgmental person they have ever encountered. They say I am kind and loving and can challenge without being threatening.
All of this gives my clients the freedom to explore themselves at the deepest levels. That is what leads to their growth in emotional intelligence, self-leadership, ability to lead, communication, understanding their values, discovering inner resources and identifying and removing blocks.
Meanwhile, I have first-hand experience of the challenging situations my clients encounter because I’ve led businesses and non-profits, run for Congress, been authorized as a Zen teacher, led efforts in diversity, equity and inclusion, appeared on all the major TV and radio shows, been in movies, had my books translated into 20 languages, spoken internationally before many tens of thousands. I have also been married and divorced and co-parented, helped a parent through death and shepherded a teenager through difficult years–all the life things.
That I live an accomplished, actualized, authentic life helps my clients do the same.
