What I offer

My role is to ‘be’ with you ‘side-by-side’ – responsive to your need for a: consultant, facilitator, learning designer, action researcher, convenor, coach, mentor partner…for an hour, for a project, for a lifetime.  I “dig in” with designers, leaders and teams seeking to discover root causes, leverage points, pathways to fresh ideas and transforming perspectives.  I offer insight, compassion and listening, seeking the enduring thread that inspires the change and shift that you and your initiatives and communities long for… bringing it into being, into action – for measurable results.

  • I work with organizational and community leaders and visionaries, resulting in increased capacity for transformational change.
  • I engage with individuals and teams to design complex undertakings, often at the start and/or when there are ‘sticky bits’, smoothing the way forward.
  • I facilitate dialogue and participatory processes for transforming limiting beliefs, creating clarity and pathways to collective action.
  • I honour the creative, the spiritual and the reflective.
  • I partner in the quest for truth and meaning.

…always committed to exploring where/if/how there is a fit.  Be in touch.

The Way It Is


There’s a thread you follow. It goes among

things that change. But it doesn’t change.

People wonder about what you are pursuing.

You have to explain about the thread.

But it is hard for others to see.

While you hold it you can’t get lost.

Tragedies happen; people get hurt

or die; and you suffer and get old.

Nothing you do can stop time’s unfolding.

You don’t ever let go of the thread.

~ William Stafford
