We create intelligent growth.


e. i. growth =

emotionally intelligent growth.


Smart leaders don’t want just any kind of growth, any more than gardeners want a farm full of weeds.

I help leaders and organizations create growth that aligns with their desired values, culture and strategy.

This happens through stories that I tell on behalf of my clients.

My work combines my experience in sales, marketing, PR, organizational development, learning, leadership and technology to find the optimal solution – lowest-cost, highest-profit, great results.
