HELPING PEOPLE AND ORGANIZATIONS FLOURISH
Helping People and Organizations Flourish
I work with large and small for-profit, non-profit, and government enterprises to improve their execution, enhance employee engagement, increase transparency, and achieve mission-critical needs. This includes the use of Just Culture Event Reviews to instill a culture of continuous learning and growth from adversity.
After receiving a Masters Degree in Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) with Distinction from the University of Pennsylvania, I joined Penn’s Positive Psychology Center as a Senior Fellow. Positive Psychology is the study of how individuals, groups, organizations, and communities can thrive. At the PPC I work with some of the world’s leading scholars in the science of flourishing and well-being to design and implement real-world programs that help people reimagine their lives and their organizations in ways that help them thrive.
I published a book, a non-fiction story about a man exonerated dramatically from death row in Louisiana. You should read it! And please take a spin through my blog, to get a better sense of how I communicate and where I focus my time.
The loves of my life include my wife and children, the Baltimore Orioles, and the collected works of Elmore Leonard.
ENGAGEMENTS & Affiliations
I have particular experience in helping organizations build engagement and improved performance from their employees, helping managers and line personnel understand each other, establish trust and work through difficult issues and challenging conversations. This includes conducting JUST CULTURE EVENT REVIEWS when organizations experience errors, mistakes, or misconduct in the course of their work.
