Your Coach:

Barbara began her consulting business more than 35 years ago with two areas of focus

  • Individual development through individual and peer coaching and programs for leadership development
  • Organization development and effectiveness through supporting teamwork and right relationship

Barbara is touched by how the commonest of life’s experiences are also the most exotic. Take parenting for example. Barbara is a single parent. She adopted her son, Michael, in Peru when he was just ten weeks old. Parenting has been a precious gift and powerful learning adventure into such emotional intelligence skills as patience, humility, kindness, and creativity.

Professionally, she has focused on executive leadership coaching for decades particularly in the area of emotional intelligence. This work suits her well and people who work with her find themselves having nourishing and rewarding experiences.

A significant amount of Barbara’s coaching is virtual. She has a passion for global community and for transforming our online experiences from transactions into deeper connections. Virtual coaching also reinforces that geography is no longer a barrier. Barbara has coached several hundred business leaders in over thirty-five countries from Argentina to Russia, from Vietnam to Belgium, from the US to South Africa.

Barbara has a long history of working in organizations. She started her organization consulting business more than 35 years ago and has had the privilege of working with several global organizations including Medtronic, Cargill, General Mills, Honeywell, and American Express.

In addition to coaching and consulting, Barbara is an author. She has written several published articles and her book, Leadership in a Challenging World: A Sacred Journey, has been used as a text in university business classes in the US, India, and Brazil.

Barbara has been honored with the 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award from The Gestalt Center for Organization and Systems Development for “making a difference in the world with her presence” and “contributing to the Center’s purpose which is: The transformation of humankind.”
