I help organizations optimize their employee experience to drive business objectives.
I am a culture expert for rapid-growth teams.
How do I do this?
I give myself, and everyone around me permission to Glow In The Dark. And I build tools to help you do that for your team.
In my youth, I burned my candles at all ends. Kind of a “wax menorah” approach to life. Who knew that was so crazy-unsustainable?!?
This put me on a 12 year path toward what I call Full-Life Integration™.
These days I burn a single candle every morning — representing my integration as a yogi householder & impact catalyst.
Pared down. Sharp Eyed. Awake.
To help spare people from my own dicey travels, I designed and released a Full-Life Integration “owner’s manual” called The Framework Manifesto. It includes a short workbook that accelerates the integration process. It’s free. You should grab it in the footer below.
I launched a mindfulness & meditation program called THE PAUSE for my last company Centro, a rapid-growth digital media firm headquartered in Chicago with 34 offices across North America.
During my time there, Centro has won many awards for our company culture, all while growing from 44 to over 700 employees.
- #1 Best Place to Work in Chicago by Crains Business, four consecutive years (2011 – 2014).
- #1 Best Place to Work in advertising & marketing (2015) – Fortune Magazine
- #1 Best Place to Work – Advertising Age (AdAge.com)
I am an outspoken advocate of meditation in business, a kriyaban yogi (Self-Realization Fellowship founded by Paramahansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi), a husband and father of 3, a marathoner, and multi-instrumentalist since childhood.
I’m obsessed with helping individuals and organizations create integration between the virtues that guide them, and the business objectives that drive them.
My current focus is on developing Mission + Values that resonate with all employees, and turning them into a growth strategy. I also offer 1:1 Mentorship + Coaching on a limited basis. Learn more here.
I’ve recently been asked to do a flurry of interviews on the topic of Full-Life Integration™.
Here are a few of my favorite conversations:
- Business Insider – Interview alongside Centro’s Founder & Chief.
- The Jess Lively Show podcast
- The One You Feed podcast
- Interviewing my friend and mentor Jonathan Fields on Good Life Project – TV
“Through the nurturing of our seemingly disparate talents and skills, we’re able to experience Full-Life Integration… When, (much like the 80s cartoon Voltron), the whole of us beats alien ass on a whole other level. –The Framework Manifesto
