When I directed, I made sure my crew was staffed with capable people who wanted to learn new skills.
In my screenplays, I put my characters in predicaments that test their moral compass and force them to take the path that is right for them.
When I was a manager in a Fortune 500 company, I held my associates to a higher standard, learned their goals and aspirations, and showed those who were willing, how to lead with compassion.
When I ran the business development team of a regional company, I challenged sales rep norms and used their existing strengths to help solve complex client issues.
When I started my own company, it was to help people of all backgrounds to act on purpose, achieve their goals, and if they were going to lead, make damn sure there were going to lead well.
The themes in my professional life have been clear, no matter the role. I believe in the amazing power of everyday people, abhor lousy leadership, and work to make things better.
No matter what changes, that will remain constant.
