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’ve been working with companies and organizations for over a decade, helping them to better understand their customers and employees so they can build better relationships.

I’m the author of The Rapport Advantage: Transforming the Way Leaders Communicate, which was published in 2019 by Palmetto Publishing Group. I’ve also created “E.I. On Demand Powered By The Rapport Advantage“, a series of online/web-based training emotional intelligence programs for two distinct audiences: Companies and Couples.

One of my many titles is Certified Human Behavior Consultant (CHBC). I use the DISC model of human behavior to help others understand themselves better from a personality perspective. This information leads to dynamic positive changes in the way attendees communicate.

I am a proud holder of the Vistage Speaker Top Performer Award for 2023. This award is presented annually to a select group of Vistage Speakers, and I’m especially proud of this accomplishment because it’s based on feedback from Vistage members whose insights and perspectives I’ve shared and valued.

Why am I so passionate about E.I.? The simple answer is: it saved my marriage.

My wife and I were having some communication challenges early in our marriage. We didn’t know it at the time, but we were complete opposites in terms of our temperament. Through the application of Emotional Intelligence concepts, we began to understand ourselves and each other better. We became a super couple!!! We have been together for nearly thirty years. Without applying our E.I. knowledge we wouldn’t be together today.

My most requested programs focus on:

Leveraging Emotional Intelligence for Business and Personal Success

Understanding Behaviors of Team Members, Leading to Higher Productivity

Communicating Effectively as an Organization That Leads to Improved Culture

My unique and interactive style will have your audiences engaged from the first minute to the last (watch out for flying candy!!)
