Putting the pieces together to create symbiosis and flow

On Contract Only

is about helping people to find symbiosis in their personal and work lives.  

My knowledge, experience, talents, creativity and skills are combined to problem solve with people individually or in groups. 

I'm really good at cutting to the heart of any issue and presenting practical, no nonsense options to move ahead for individuals and groups.  Some people like that approach because it seems to simple and others want more complicated language.  I stay on the simple, straighforward road to save time, money and energy as well as achieve far more than staying stuck in meetings.

I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work. Thomas A. Edison

The secret to solving anything is not by meeting  and meeting and meeting and talking and talking and talking.  The secret is find some possible solutions, talk a little with as many people as possible who are involved in the issue and pick ONE POSSIBLE SOLUTION.  RUN WITH IT.  People won't mind if they know that the course of action may change because no one expects a perfect option right out of the gate.  The solution won't be perfect.  Outline some steps, assign those steps and run with it.  You'll find that you have to "course correct" a great deal or you may find that, part way through the process, the solution was wrong.  Good.  Try again.  That's the fun of discovery - figuring out what works and what doesn't so that, in the end, the best possible outcome happens.

As Edison said,

"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time." Thomas A. Edison, http://www.brainyquote.com



I offer webinars, podcasts, courses and PDFs for people to study on their own. 

If people want more individual help, I offer consulting, workshops, facilitation, as needed services, mentoring, and coaching.


Because some groups need only a workshop.  Some others need consulting and some need facilitiation.  Some groups need all three to complete the changes they want to see.

Some individuals like the online courses and workshops.  But they want individual help too either through mentoring or coaching.

As needed services satisfy groups who want to have a resource on which to depend when issues arise and they need some help.

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. Thomas A. Edison

What's my background?

My background is eclectic and some would even call it uncommon.  I worked my way up into senior management roles.  My career has taken me into many industries:  medical, law, mining, performing and visual arts,   multi-faceted billion-dollar corporations, seniors activity and care,  adult education, self-development and coaching.  Within these industries, I made sure to learn as much as I could and acquire new, sometimes, unrelated skills. 

I learned a lot from working in all those industries - the differences and the similarities.   I had many successes and made mistakes - big and small - along the way from which I learned important lessons.

My multi-potentialite nature is reflected by this array of experiences and the move into consulting, presenting workshops, facilitating and creating online courses to fill the eternal drive to learn more, do more and, at the same time, help others with what I know.

I'm a lifelong learner, curious and interested in  many topics.  What great gifts my teachers have given me!  I am now passing on what I have learned.
