My Work and My Passion
I teach professional development workshops on various leadership and human resources challenges across Southern New Jersey and the Philadelphia region (I am open to and will gladly travel).
I bask in the opportunity and potential for improving the work environment since most of us spend more time with our colleagues than we do with our personal friends and family. To this end, my work often focuses on difficult conversations, whether those conversations are intrapersonal or amongst team members. Sometimes, the issue is a workplace that subjects us to conditions (including illegal harassment) that are debasing, counterproductive, and chaotic. At other times, it is our perspective and behavior that makes our experiences seem crushing. Overall, my philosophy and work are about leadership development, addressing workplace harassment, promoting diversity and inclusion, and effective human resources compliance.
