A Consortium is a joining of two or more individuals or groups for the purpose of bringing their resources to bear upon a common objective.

I’m the Founder & Principal of this independent consultancy focused upon Leadership Development & Organizational Efficiency in both the For-Profit and Nonprofit sectors.

After a 27-year career at Walmart, first in the field and then in the corporate office, I retired in 2000 as Vice President of HR & Talent Development. I co-founded the State’s first Charter School and have been an Adjunct Professor in the Don Soderquist School of Business at John Brown University & The Sam Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas. I taught multiple courses in both school’s Advanced Degree Programs that included Leading Change, Building Teams, Team Processes & Coalition Building, Organizational Behavior, Entrepreneurship, Foundations of Leadership, Mission-Vision-Values, Ethical Decisions in Organizations, and Production of Goods & Services.

I’ve authored several publications, including I Didn’t Ask You to Dance! I Asked You to Talk: A common sense, humorous and at times, spiritual approach to communication in a world obsessed with political correctness! and Managing Difficult People in the Workplace: A Practical Guide to Confronting Difficult People.
