I have been active in higher education and corporate communication consulting since the early 1990s, and I teach and work primarily in the MBA Program at the University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler Business School in Chapel Hill, North Carolina (USA) where I have been since 2004. My courses focus primarily on business writing, public-speaking and business-presentation skills, crisis communication, and global/cross-cultural communication.
I have consulted with a wide variety of public- and private-sector companies, from regional startups to government contractors to Fortune 100 companies. I have been very fortunate to work across the US and to visit or consult with companies in Europe, North Africa, Asia and the Middle East. I received my BA from the University of Maryland, my Masters from Texas A&M, and my PhD from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
I am certified in the International Conflict-Styles Inventory (ISCI), the Intercultural Developmental Inventory (IDI) and, as a licensed partner with Richard Lewis Communications, am a trained and certified coach with the CultureActive communication-style assessment and associated databases. We can, together, use these tools and my years of experience to customize training and consultations that exactly fit any of your communication needs.
Sessions with me, from individual consultations to whole-company presentations, will, absolutely, be high-energy, interactive, instructive and exactly what you and/or your company needs—full of real-world advice, specific and immediately actionable tips and tricks, clear feedback, customized materials and take-aways, and tactics which will, unequivocally, enhance your communication abilities, executive presence and leadership skills.
WSLead, LLC provides support to individuals, teams, and any-sized companies to streamline communication effectiveness and cultivate enhanced personal understanding, team dynamics, and overall efficacy in messaging across all written, spoken and electronic media—domestically and around the world.
Clients received customized advice, interactions, workshops, materials, support and training on any scale (from one-to-one to one-to-many) primarily in business writing, all aspects of business presentations, and cross-cultural communication coaching—but the breadth of experience here provides for top-tier support and service for any situation or circumstance in which effective communication is integral to your success.
WSLead supports everyone from individuals or entrepreneurs who are just starting out, through those of us looking to enhance our situations or status at work, to executives and others who need clear coaching in order to advance to their next level. The focus, in every instance, remains on success and leadership in whatever form your communication takes. Write? Speak? Lead.
You started and finished strong and you kept us all engaged and entertained (sure that was just an added bonus). The symposium wasn’t the same the last two days after you left.
