While attending a high school business club weekend workshop, I was introduced to leadership development training and team facilitation. It was all fascinating. I recall watching the workshop facilitator in action and deciding what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I’ve had the great fortune to pursue my passion for leadership and talent development throughout my professional career with General Electric and General Mills. The experience of working side-by-side with some of the best leaders in the world while serving in roles in executive development and worldwide talent management has been priceless.
Lately, I’ve been sharing what I’ve learned. Keynote presentations at conferences and teaching in Executive MBA programs are very energizing. While a bit quieter, writing in professional magazines, books and this website are equally rewarding. I find that every day is a chance to help others make the most of their potential as I continue to learn more about this amazing field of leadership and talent development.
