Now, more than ever, we need leaders with critical conflict resilience skills -- the ability to listen deeply, to assert authentically, and to see conflict well-managed as a way to foster creativity, inclusion, and dynamism.

I work with individuals and institutions to cultivate both the sensibility and the capacity to harness differences, engage challenging conversations, promote creativity, and foster mutual gain.
