I coach on a broad range of topics—from teamwork to leadership succession to merging strategic vision/execution with legacy and personal power. My approach is to help you increase your awareness of your own psychology, belief system, personal power and capabilities.
First job: a corporal in Singapore military, where I learned what sticking up for one another means. Second job while at Princeton: leading mountaineering expeditions, where I learned about increasing teamwork through good cooking. Third job: as an Episcopal priest in Los Angeles where I learned to empathize with any and everybody. Fourth job after Harvard Business School: as a management consultant, where I learned I disliked doing spreadsheets – and how important they are! Thereafter for the last 16 years, I have coached globally with leaders from mid to C-suite, helping them to become excellent.
My approach is to first build trust. Sometimes, I coach, helping you to come up with your own insights and actions. But sometimes, I will also be a trusted advisor, offering you my counsel and feedback, based on having coached hundreds of executives. I support you to have open mind, open heart and open will. I can be affectionate and warm; and I can also be direct.
I have coached senior executives at leading companies such as Prudential Group, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Rockwell Automation, and in INSEAD’s Executive Education programs in Singapore and France. I co-founded a leadership program for Southeast Asian and American youth in 2002; and until recently, was a board member of Prime Produce, a 21st century entrepreneurial guild in New York City. I live in New York, Singapore and United Airlines.
