• Who Are You?

    Dig in with me to unearth:

    your best qualities & self confidence

    your organization's mission

    your opportunities to collaborate

  • Who I Am

    I am an enthusiastic, energetic, engaging person who discovers the best in people,

    and helps them put their best qualities to work for them.

    Like many of you, my professional life has not followed a straight line. There are, however, a few through-lines that have transcended every stage of my career. I learned that understanding yourself & your mission, collaborating, communicating, a healthy sense of humor, and creativity in thought and deed were worth exploring, and led to new ways to achieve goals with confidence.

     

    My professional life has included theater, leading a six-city chamber of commerce, working with non-profits, and civic organizations.

     

    Like you, I've had a lot of labels and titles applied to me. You can make a list of your own...executive, artist, director, parent, sibling...but that is not what people value about you, your business or your organization. I'll help you dig in to discover what they DO value.

  • How We'll Dig In

    Coaching, Workshops, Facilitation & Online Courses

    Coaching and Workshops

    Discover who you really are!

    You are not what you do, you are NOT your label or title. So often we waste time trying to live up to what we THINK people expect of us, and forget to appreciate what we really bring to the table. We focus on our failings. STOP IT! People value knowing and working with you!

     

    It takes a little digging, but you can discover what's been buried underneath the layers of work and life...and develop the self confidence to communicate better, build relationships, or find ways to collaborate.

     

    Whether you know it or not, you do have a personal mission and a personal brand. I take people through a simple process to help them bring it all to light, in groups or individually.

    Meeting & Retreat Facilitation

    Why your "why" matters!

    Whether you have a new organization, one that needs to manage change, or a group of people or organizations that want to collaborate, getting clarity on your "why" is a must! I help organizations discover or redefine their goals, missions and vision statements, and help them create effective strategies and tactics to achieve them.

     

    Additionally, when your team, board members or employees understand their own value as well as the value others bring to the table, they communicate more effectively, own their part in achieving goals, ignite passion for the mission, and feel appreciated doing it. Ensuring that everyone at the table has the opportunity to be heard and valued is an equally vital key to empowering your team.

  • What People Are Saying

    A few words from my peers, which I share with gratitude for having worked with them.

    Angie excels at bringing groups of people together and then facilitating meetings which result in real productive outcomes. Whether it be an introduction to a new business owner or meetings with my colleagues from other communities, Angie has a unique skill of getting people together around the same table and then ensuring we leave that table with action steps in hand. This is what makes it so great working with her.

    One great thing about Angie, that I take advantage of often, is that she is always willing to listen. She is one among the people in my life that I can always go to for advice and run new ideas by - with total trust. For over 10 years I've valued every opportunity I’ve had to work with her.

    Thoughts about life and work experiences...and lessons learned.

    I learned to make spaghetti sauce from my grandmother. Every Sunday we gathered at her house for a sumptuous meal. And like all great cooks, her recipe contained ingredients, preparation and a plan to put them all together to create something delicious. She even taught me to remember the...
    Are you dealing with some difficult people? We all do! We tell stories about them with our friends, we exaggerate their short comings or faults, maybe even turn the stories into a recurring comedy routine that friends look forward to! And all the while, we are focusing on behaviors that we DON'T...
    Every business requires transactions at some point – otherwise we’d never earn any money. If you’ve ever attended sales training, you’ve no doubt learned about helping your customers get over the objections they have so that they can decide to work with or purchase from you. What I find more...
