How’s my driving? Write me a review
I’m a Career Coach, Business Storyteller and Personal Branding Consultant who helps professionals to communicate their value in an authentic and compelling way. I specialize in Career Reinvention for people who want to take their careers to the next level or transition to a position better aligned with their goals and values. But I also do leadership and executive coaching upon request using the Genos Emotional Intelligence model and other instruments.
My super-power is seeing someone’s potential, mining past skills and accomplishments, and helping them rebuild their professional identity from the ground up. My career in Corporate America spanned over 25 years and included Leadership, Project Management, Information Technologies and Consulting. As hiring manager for a consulting firm, I sourced thousands of resumes and hired hundreds of professionals. My hiring decisions had to be right. I prepared consultants for interviews and taught them to clearly communicate their value proposition.
I have worked with and for Fortune 100 companies, navigated mergers & acquisitions, and worked on more projects and initiatives than I can count. I love my work, helping people find their voice and gain clarity on their way forward. Watching someone transform from a place of fear and self-doubt to a place of joy, confidence, and empowerment is life-affirming.
I produced and hosted The Next Step with Jeff Rock, a BlogTalk Radio show focused on personal branding and transformational storytelling (being retooled). I’ve been a guest blogger for web sites in Japan, India, and Iceland. I’m published in an e-book on thought-leadership in personal branding. I’m a frequent guest on Empower Radio and other podcasts and Blab sessions.
I’m an active member and contributor of the StoryU storytelling community, as well as Stand Out and Be Heard, a community for thought-leaders, authors, podcasters, and professional speakers.
Speaking engagements include multiple Project Management conferences, Cambridge College Masters in Mental Health Program, Carson Center for Human Development.
I live with my wife, Mary, and three dogs on a small farm for rescued horses.
