I arm Talent Development & HR professionals, like you, with the knowledge they need to excel and provide outstanding value to their organizations.
Talent Development is more than facilitating a performance discussion once a year or holding leaders accountable for appraisal scores. Talent is the #1 asset in organizations today, and you should be empowered to help your company harness that potential.
I believe Talent Development should be simple, human-centered solutions that drive business value. And I believe that you have it in you to design and implement those solutions.
Think of me as your Talent Mentor.
I have more than 20 years of experience in America's top Fortune 100 and 500 firms, developing and honing my craft in Talent Development. I designed, facilitated and implemented learning & development programs at IBM. I launched a corporate university and sales training at Capital One. I spent 12 amazing years leading and building the talent function at Southwest Airlines. Currently I serve as the Vice President, HR at Zachry Group.
I am passionate about developing and growing Talent Development professionals into talent experts who know their stuff and launch crazy cool talent solutions in their organizations. I've seen what works and what doesn't, and want to pass that along to you.
Let me help you hone your Talent Development game. I believe you have the potential to design and implement talent solutions that make a difference.
No, I don't spend all my time reading, researching and thinking about Talent Development. That would get dull.
I also obsess about travel, tea, plant-based living, the next book I'm going to read, and our Great Dane, Willow.
