 How do you inspire people to be the best version 
of themselves?

A true leader doesn’t manage. They guide, encourage, and challenge their team to find their own way to win.

They inspire.

In Chief Inspiration Officer, I show leaders how to inspire themselves and their teams with actionable advice gained from my years in corporate leadership, further refined by working with thousands of Fortune 500 company leaders. 


Whether you’re new to leadership or a veteran looking for fresh insights, this book will help you:

Founder of Executive Muse & Author of Chief Inspiration Officer: How to Lead the Team Everyone Wants to Be On

Everyone wants to lead a team with an inspiring culture - the team that everyone would love to join.

When you lead this team, you attract the best talent, get amazing results and grow individual contributors into future leaders.

And you’ll get noticed.

As someone who invested years building that team herself, leading 30 amazing professionals, and helping Fortune 500 companies, startups and small businesses do the same, I know this goal is attractive—but it isn’t easy.

Through my work with Executive Muse where I coach and train high-impact leaders, I've helped them accomplish their goal of building powerful micro cultures—and becoming a leader who gets noticed. 

You'll find out how to do it yourself in my book, Chief Inspiration Officer.

In the book, I share dozens of real examples and techniques, including how leaders can help others grow past their limitations, how they master tough conversations, what it takes to inspire others and how to create a team everyone wants to join.
