We all have gifts. I think it is my responsibility to use mine to build into as many lives as possible in my life, beyond my reach, and beyond my life. I don’t know how to build bridges, I don’t have a whiz bang invention, but I do know how to influence others and change their thinking. Their changed thinking changes their lives. That is my job – by speaking, writing, or coaching.
I’m the son of a university professor. I’m the nephew of a university professor. Their careers were spent in the business of teaching. I think I’ve got some of that gene. I spent a lot of time doodling in notebooks during school, college, and graduate school, because I was bored. I do my best as a speaker to keep people like me engaged in what I’m talking about.
I got a PhD in Psychology from Ohio State in 1991. I did my predoctoral internship at the University of Utah. I worked at Ball State University in Indiana. I worked part time at a large church in central Ohio while I built my own business. I’ve been self-employed since 1999 and an executive coach since 2002. I’m not going anywhere.
I have a wonderful life. I am grateful to have had great parents and a great sister. I’m married to a bright and engaging wife. I have three adult children who are each making their way in the world in creative and interesting work. It’s fun to watch them embrace life.
I’ve had the good fortune to work with entrepreneurs, tech companies, big Fortune 20 companies, and professionals like lawyers, financial planners, and other high relationship sales people. I want to influence our culture, so I am like working with companies that distribute information, create technology, and create entertainment
