My life and work focus on personal and institutional transformation and learning. I have been an integral player through decades of institutional change in public, private, and global institutions. My writing, speaking, and consulting focus on leadership, strategy execution, the learning enterprise, and on the successful implementation of major changes, especially changes focused on transcending traditional boundaries across levels and organization silos.

My work draws extensively on both experience and on the world’s research into what works to achieve sustained results and change in organizations and across supply chains and value networks. I am committed to visions and strategies that promote and support participative governance, partnerships across the value stream, high levels of personal accountability, optimization of leader-follower relationships, and creating learning and development cultures.

We are living through a time of transformation of human institutions and the human spirit where everyone has an opportunity and responsibility to significantly influence the future. This is why I have dedicated my life -- through speeches, writing, and consulting -- to help leaders and institutions act on today’s leadership, citizenship, productivity, and innovation challenges. Today this means integrating technology and people in ways that help both the organization and its people to flourish – a challenge that is morphing as we enter “Industry 4.0” and the era where people and organizations must co-evolve with technology.
