Biography

My passion is about aligning company people practices with the company culture and the company’s strategic business plan. I continue to link the people side of business with the strategic business plan making the people initiatives business activities that produce results through increased: customer service, safety, quality, productivity and profitability. I have been told that my ideas are often counter to many of the 'popular" viewpoints; earning me the reputation of being a ‘contrarian’ consultant. In addition, I am called upon to coach individuals at the leadership levels of organizations.

Much of my work focuses on working with executive teams, facilitating conversations that bring clarity to the values through the articulation of behaviours. I continue to work on the implementation of integrating people management processes in the areas of behavioural competencies, behavioural interviewing, performance management, high potential identification and employee & leadership development plus succession planning.
