I keep six honest serving-men
(They taught me all I knew);
Their names are What and Why and When
And How and Where and Who.
I send them over land and sea,
I send them east and west;
But after they have worked for me,
I give them all a rest.

Rudyard Kipling, The Elephant’s Child

I am dedicated to improving the quality of leadership in the 21st century by influencing how people think, learn, behave and impact society.

As a thinker, writer, speaker, adviser and educator, I seek to address the most important questions in life. What drives you? Why do you care? When do you show up? How do you learn? Where are you heading? Who are you?

My work has featured in publications like Harvard Business Review, Financial Times, The Economist, CNN, The Wall Street Journal, BBC, Forbes, Management Today, The Sunday Times, The Globe and Mail, Developing Leaders, Global Focus, China Economic Review, Personnel Today, Emerald Insight, Training and Development, Strategic Direction, The National, La Depeche, Management Issues, and all major Scandinavian media outlets.

I am co-author of The Neo-Generalist, which explores the value of multidisciplinarity, of living in more than one world.
