An emotional intelligence expert, author, and award-winning speaker. Also a crazy, goofy, 12 year old trapped in a 40-something-year-old’s body!
I work with companies and organizations that want to better understand their customers and employees so they can build better relationships.
I am the author of The Rapport Advantage: Transforming the Way Leaders Communicate. I created “E.I. On Demand Powered By The Rapport Advantage”, a series of online/web-based training emotional intelligence programs for three distinct audiences: Companies, Couples and Colleges.
