I’m passionate about leadership! For 30 years, as a military officer, school administrator, adjunct professor, cancer survivor and certified coach, teacher and speaker for the John Maxwell Team, I have been at the forefront of training others to maximize their potential. My philosophy is simple: All people are leaders—from the stay-at-home mom raising children, to the store clerk representing a franchise, to the CEO of a Fortune 500 company. The only question is this: How effective are they?
The seeds of leadership were planted in me during my time in the United Sates military. As a Company Commander and training officer, I led hundreds of soldiers and staff. I also instructed all branches of the military in preparedness for nuclear, biological and chemical warfare, including weapons of mass destruction. This experience required a level of training, coaching and drive unlike any I had known while growing up in small-town Chester, Pennsylvania. I have held onto those skills, carrying them into my subsequent career in education as a high school teacher and administrator for our nation’s eighth largest school district. I have also taught business courses at the collegiate level as an adjunct professor for a nationally accredited university.
As my career progressed and later shifted, I learned yet another key aspect of leadership: balance. Now, with each new venture or training opportunity, my goal is to “add value” to others’ lives, empowering them to solve problems, weigh priorities, reach their potential—and have some fun, too. It starts with recognizing the leader in us all!
