What was the path that led you to Trium? How did your partnership with Trium come about?

I’ve been working as a CEO coach and organizational consultant for the past 20 years, and I’ve always been interested in cutting-edge thinking and innovative work. When Andrew (Trium’s CEO and Managing Partner) began searching for a coach within his network about two years ago, he was referred to me by a trusted friend – this is how I ultimately learned about and started working with Trium. As Andrew and I worked together, we realized the tremendous commonality of values and ways of working that led us to be intrigued about working together. Shortly after, Andrew invited me to join two client engagements that were underway. This is where I got the opportunity to work more closely with Monica (a Partner at Trium) and some other key team members. After that, I got to know even more of the Trium team and immediately felt a deep connection with them. At that point, I was invited to become a partner of the firm – an offer which I gladly accepted.

What are you most excited about in your work at Trium?

I am most excited about learning from my colleagues and being part of a community of people whose values I share. I am enthused about being part of Trium because we both share a mission and core belief that, to have the largest impact on the world, one needs to work with senior leaders and influencers. I’ve been doing that on my own for 20 years, but I now have an opportunity to have a far greater impact by being part of this team.

In the past, I worked with senior leaders mostly within technology companies, but Trium allows me the opportunity to work with a more diverse group of companies at the Fortune 500 level.

To sum up, I truly value being part of a team, learning from my teammates, being challenged by my teammates, and taking my game to a higher level.

Over the course of your career you have worked across industries, partnered with a number of organizations and seen a lot of what is right and wrong with business. Based on these experiences, is there a problem you see in the business world that you’d like to solve?

The biggest problem I’ve observed is an extreme lack of connection between leaders and their organizations. My goal is to increase connectivity between leaders and their organizations so that the cost of change is minimized and opportunities for personal growth and development are optimized.

What is your proudest achievement to date?

On a personal level, my proudest achievement to date is raising my children. On a professional level, my proudest achievement is being part of a community made up of people who are bringing mindfulness into the workplace, particularly in my work with Medium, and now with Trium.

Finally, what might surprise people about you?

It might surprise people that I am a playwright and white water rafting guide. I’ve built three theater companies and I have guided on all the major rivers west of the Mississippi.
