A visionary communicator, an accomplished organizational consultant, and leadership development coach for early to mid-stage startups, my innovative approach to conflict resolution springs from the methodology I created called Collaborative Disagreement®.
Everything I do is grounded in the techniques I learned at Columbia University, shifting people's mindset around disagreement while providing tools and processes for resolving high-stakes situations collaboratively.
I received my Master of Science in Negotiation & Conflict Resolution from Columbia University, have been a consultant to venture-backed startups, and recently saved two from near failure.
So whether through my consulting, another expert, a book, or any other avenue, do yourself a favor and get the help you need to make sure your company thrives!
