"Be the Best Team Player and Manager of Others That You Can Be"

I have been fascinated by how people behave at work since the day I started working, decades ago.

I have been a CEO / a CIO / a CTO and many other things before that. 

My post graduate training is in the psychology of the workplace and adult development. 

My business career has spanned information technology, organizational change / transformation, and e-learning. 

Today I lead discrete workplace investigations focused on Harassment / Bullying, Sexual Harassment, Inappropriate Personal Relationships which lead to Conflicts of Interest, and Misuse of Organizational Assets - Fraud. 

I create e-learning programs for working professionals and organizations. 

I deliver soft skill training workshops for organizations.
