I seek to embody my profession. I’ve been training in martial arts for over two decades.
This training has been transformational for me in my personal growth and development – and I take my learnings into my practice.
Masters Degree in Conflict Analysis and Resolution
I teach undergraduate and graduate courses at George Mason University’s Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution, as well as speak at numerous conferences and symposia each year.
"Conflict opens up who we are and gets to the heart of pain and fear. It is an opportunity for growth."
I believe that learning about conflict – within ourselves and within groups – is the crux of leadership. If you can master that, then everything else falls into place.
