for agencies: elevate your people

build a culture that cares

When your culture is strong, and your people are cared for and feeling valued, they're going to be happier - elevating EVERYTHING. 

When you care about your people, your people care about the work. It's cyclical. And it's important. 

Otherwise, you're constantly turning over new talent and you're not able to cultivate and groom good people for the long term. 

When you're not actively creating a culture that cares, you're actually creating a culture of toxicity, bitterness, and unhappiness where the best and brightest are burnt out, work becomes exhausting and unfulfilling, and your people are looking for an escape between meetings. 

Supercharge your approach to talent radically – and quickly – to maintain staff, nurture skills and development, improve culture, and drive business growth.

I can help.

coaching for emerging  talent

Cultivate and care for your junior level high-performers, NOW.  Before they end up selling you your next house. 

This type of coaching is typically reserved for execs only, but your emerging talent are exactly the ones who could use this training earlier on... They're the overachievers who could be really fantastic, long-term employees, but in that 3-5 year span, burnout, and stress compounds.

Own Your Agency

Bring a pen and paper to this empowering workshop that puts you in the driver’s seat of your life (ie - owning your own agency). Gain a clear vision of what’s working and what’s not in your life today, define your vision for where you want to go, and plan your next action steps to get yourself there.

You’ll leave this workshop with a new model for your life which you’ll come back to again and again.


The Three Most Important Questions

Many people struggle to be truly fulfilled in their lives today. Even if we think we’re doing everything right and are working hard to achieve our goals, we’re still not as happy as we’d like to be.

What if the secret to your happiness formula lies in three simple, yet profound questions which can shed light on your truest aspirations and values in life?

This workshop will set you on the path to better goal setting and aligning your actions with your goals, fast.

The signature empowerment workshop to master writing your own story

Your Hero's Journey

Too many people allow themselves to be an ancillary character in their own story.

This half-day workshop guides attendees through the six stages of their own Hero's Journey as the protagonist in their own story.

Using the classic Joseph Campbell theories, attendees learn how to align their passions with their careers, while taking a more proactive lead in drafting how their story unfolds.
