You've got it in you.


executive coaching for architects, engineers, developers and professional services firms

Crises happen. Conflict is human. Communication breaks down.

The test of leadership isn’t whether adversity happens – it’s how you respond.


In just a few months, everything you thought you knew about leadership has been put to the test. The pressure to adapt, pivot, and stay productive is enormous on you and your firm.

Everyone is still looking to you as their Fearless Leader.


Are you feeling the weight of it all?


This is not the time to lie low, but you don’t have to go it alone.

As your Executive Coach, I’ll be by your side and on your side to guide you through.


When you come to The Table, you’re tapping into decades of executive experience and hundreds of hours of mediation practice. I've been an architect and design executive for more than 30 years. I’ve seen the mistakes business leaders make, and I’ve made many of them myself. I’ve learned that avoiding conflict and ignoring the weak spots in your leadership causes small problems to grow into roadblocks that impact the entire firm.


As an executive coach and mediator, I work with professionals—owners, partners and managers—to help you become Fearless Leaders. You’ll gain practical tools to improve communication, navigate crises, and get back to productive and satisfying work.

You can find common ground and move forward.

Workplace Leadership

You may be a natural leader or a reluctant one—either way, you know your team performs best in an authentic environment of transparency and trust.

The human element—great people working well together —is key to your firm’s productivity, morale, and even its survival. Opening diverse channels of communication and engaging in even the most difficult conversations builds a caring, connected workplace. Becoming a Fearless Leader is in your power – and worth your effort.  I’ll show you how.

Beyond the Workplace

Family matters are never really left at home, and they can’t help but impact work performance as well as personal relationships. These issues can be especially acute now that there are no boundaries between work and home, and our lives are being disrupted by so many external stressors.

If you or your employees need support with difficult issues at home, I can help.
