My doctoral research on self-concept conducted within a longitudinal study of cognitive and personality development at the University of California, Berkeley (http://review.ucsc.edu/summer.97/29_years.html) continues to inspire every aspect of my work with individuals, executives, teams and organizational cultures -- each is part of a complex ecosystem, changing and developing over time -- and influenced by dynamic situations in the environment.
Earlier in my career I was a marketing vice president and managed product campaigns, client satisfaction programs, and co-marketing alliances with corporations including IBM, Unisys, Kodak as well as client organizations including Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield, Chase Manhattan Bank, NJ Department of Labor, Federal Express, and Consolidated Edison.
Currently, as an organizational consultant I weave the business and psychology research threads together to focus on leadership development and organizational productivity – using tools of executive coaching, assessment, team dynamics facilitation, and project management. My mission: to help organizations execute on competitive strategies and innovation within a high quality work life culture. I have worked with organizations across a wide range of industries including financial services, publishing, high-tech, education and government. I also still maintain a small clinical psychology psychotherapy practice.
