Primary Goals sits at the intersection of three core ideas about communication:
- Leaders create vision by communicating a compelling future to their teams.
- Teams create success based on how effectively the communicate and coordinate with each other.
- Entrepreneurial ventures are successful only when they communicate value to people with a concern that the business can take care of
In all cases, it’s about Conversations for Committed Results. That’s our Primary Goal.

My theory of practice focuses on the health of the individual and the organization, typically using the following lenses:
- Play: How is success recognized and celebrated? How do you recharge? Where in life do you find joy?
- Relationships: What are your strengths and blind spots as you relate to family and friends, peers, supervisors, and subordinates? How does your relationship style serve you, and how does it limit you?
- Creativity: Where in life do you find your greatest self-expression? Who would you be with greater access to your power to create in your life, rather than merely responding to it?
- Teaching: How and where are you sharing your gifts, skills, and talents with others? What is the role of service in your life?
- Learning: How do you adapt to ever increasing rates of change? What new skills would most increase your resilience? What old habits are holding you back? What would change if you could embrace learning as a way of being?
