Another Year with Forbes


I’m excited to announce—and so grateful for—another year with the Forbes Coaches Council!

The world needs our courage now more than ever—in leadership and living—and I am excited to continue joining forces with other Forbes coaches to cultivate courageous awareness and action within our leaders, teams, and organizations.

The Forbes Coaches Council is a dynamic collection of coaches spanning industries, roles, and niches across the US that come together as a collective to deepen the wisdom and integrity of our leadership culture.



On a related note, some of you know I’ve been working on a couple key topics related to leadership culture this past year and am excited to announce that research and development is wrapping up and the second draft of writing on LONELINESS IN LEADERSHIP has commenced.

This topic has been an intense one—both professionally and personally—and I’m so grateful for all of you who have participated in the research process, been interviewed, and for your patience as this writing journey has been far longer than anticipated.

Loneliness is one of our darkest experiences in both life and leadership. Its anatomy is layered and often likened to anxiety, depression, or grief, all of which can be a cause or an effect of loneliness. Yet loneliness in its purest form is a human experience. While rarely discussed, loneliness exists in our leadership, team, and workplace cultures as often as any other human experience.

This work has been powerful to move through this past year and remains ripe with emotion and learning as i continue the writing and editing process. The research, the interviews, and bearing witness to others’ experiences this year coupled with several fresh, new experiences of my own have offered a depth to this process I didn’t anticipate yet welcome.

With both the backdrop and the center stage of our leadership culture full of emotion on every level these days, it is so important to recognize the role loneliness plays in our hunger for power rather than for contribution. I’m so excited to bring leadership voices from various walks of life, experience, and industry together to speak to this vital and growing conversation.

Our leadership can be influenced by our loneliness.
And our loneliness can be transformed by our leadership.
