Writing in the margins, notes or embellishments

Embellishments on books are as old as the books themselves. People have been embellishing the margins of books for as long as they have been around. Making books not just a carrier of knowledge but also a piece of art.

I think the margins are the most interesting. The margins are where the words on the page grow. Where people may note their questions to be answered later, definitions to look up or ideas to explore. The margins are my specialty. The defined, undefined spaces where art and science meld.

Margin-al Gains

Unlocking potential and building better organizations

I assist organizations to organize, and improve their performance and effectiveness. The videos below are some examples of recent work. The presentations were created as part of the Roosevelt University Master of Arts in Organizational Development program. These are real world interventions I have led or been a part of. There are a few other presentations I include so you can get a full picture of me.

I invite you to explore the videos below and gain a better understanding of my approach, abilities, and the value I can bring to organizations from the margins

My Values

Melding the science of behavior and the art of leadership

Humanistic Design

Buckminster Fuller said, “Give them [people] a tool to use which will lead to new ways of thinking”. I believe people are at the center of all change and must be considered in the design in order for it to be successful.

Continuous Improvement

A true life-long learner. I adapt to new processes, applications, and technology quickly. I love helping others see and reach their potential. Learning and improvement are intrinsically linked and lead to system and process improvements.

Cross-Functional Relationships

I strive to build authentic relationships. Relationships support all aspects of change from strategizing to project management.
