What I do: I make my difference helping other people make theirs creating unique connections between leadership, learning, & life through the power of story. I do that through paid speaking and coaching, writing and of course my podcast, helping you with content, your own speaking, your own writing, and more. I help you by helping you shape and tell your story, or by telling your group or company stories that will help them better make their difference!
Where I've been: I’ve been a teacher, a principal, a congressional staffer, and a Dean. I've led schools, non-profits, and movements. For the last 12 years I've worked in higher education disability. I even co-authored Tennessee's Dyslexia law. On a whim, I wrote a little indie leadership book that became an Amazon bestseller. From time to time it gets picked up by small groups and employers and from time to time they ask me to speak. I love it, but I want to help even more people!
Leadership is a conversation worth having, especially when we connect it to personal biases, learning, and life in general. I’ve been speaking and presenting for years, and I’ve presented from Appalachia to Africa, so make no mistake I'll say yes, and come to you wherever you are as well. All you have to do is ask! I want to make a difference helping you make a difference. Let me help you tell your story or your company's story.
My Leaderbyte Stories Podcast on iTunes and podbean highlights stories of leaders from all walks of life. Let's talk. (Scroll down to book me, but just in case, let's make sure we connect on social media, in person, or by phone or email just to ensure we're on the same page!)
Services and scheduling: Basic availability is typically limited to weekends and evenings. Currently, I have a day job. So podcasting, speaking, coaching, consulting, and writing are all meaningful side hustles. For an additional fee, other arrangements off the typical schedule can certainly be made as time and opportunity allow. There's of course, never a fee for podcast hosting or appearances but anyone is welcome to buy an ad.
