I started my professional career as a mainframe operator, loading reel to reel tapes for data backups. I eventually became a data and analytics developer, architect, and manager over the first decade of my career. As I stumbled my way through the traditions of ladder-climbing and top-down corporate change, it was in these traditional settings that I found the frustration I needed to ignite the passion that would fuel the next decade of my career.
My development days are behind me, and now instead, I spend my time in the pursuit of finding better ways to invite change into teams and organizations. The practices I've found along the way have helped me and others I've worked with become more aware of themself, the situations around them, and the shared context of those involved.
I now share my experiences through facilitating Organizational Change and Management courses. I hope you'll join me in my quest to improve management and change.
