Writer, Speaker, Consultant
I’m a writer, speaker, consultant, and coach who focuses on the intersections of meaning and culture. I’m especially engaged in exploration of the practices and perspectives that contribute to ethical and effective leadership, purposeful and empowering organizations, and healing and reconciling spirituality. I draw on my varied experiences as a leader of congregations and other organizations and as a university teacher.
