Everyone has a mental toolbox they draw on every day to get things done. How full is yours?


Click here to jump to The Art of Handling Interruptions - my latest post

My toolbox is populated by three decades of IT experience leading up to my current position as a Senior Director at a Fortune 100 company. I’ve seen a lot, read a lot, made mistakes, and found new and innovative approaches to bring to leadership. I’ve always learned and added new tools to my mental toolbox and through this site I will give you some shiny new tools to embrace, consider, or in some cases what to avoid.

The optimal outcome for this site is that you walk away with a new tool you can stick in your toolbox.

In general I write to several themes which I have found to be the most beneficial to creating a highly effective organization: Employee empowerment, Process improvement, Lean Six Sigma, Leadership, Continuous improvement, and what I call "next level thinking".

Please enjoy and send your thoughts, feedback, or questions. I also encourage discussion and debate, learning from each other as we move forward.
