With individuals, he addresses healthy leadership, work-life balance, and project start-ups. He has experience working with the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Inventory, and The Enneagram, and is a Gallup-Certified CliftonStrengths Coach. He is a Senior Consultant and Coach with Convergence and has training in Organizational Transition Leadership and Pastoral Care and Counseling.
