What would you do if you could not fail?

Your answer may reveal something about your purpose, your strengths, and your wildest hopes. Yet too often we let fear drive our actions. After all, the status quo is hard to change. Most organizational change efforts fail--articles and presentations remind us of this continually. The odds are against us.

And yet we persist.

Dreamers, futurists, believers, builders--people who see an alternative to the current reality--continue to shift the world by connecting to their purpose, using their strengths, and sharing their wildest hopes. What would you like to do today?

I help people discover their agile instincts and develop their coaching abilities. As an agile coach with Improving in Dallas, I enjoy mentoring others to become great Scrum Masters, coaching managers to grow teams that deliver amazing results, and fostering communities that provide sustainability for agile transformations. In my experience, applying agile methods improves delivery, strengthens relationships, and builds trust between business and IT. A big believer in the power of community-based learning, I grew the DFW Scrum user group significantly over the five years I served as an organizer. I am also a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach, a foodie, and proud glasses wearer.
