If you could be better at anything, what would it be?
Do you have a great plan?
I’d like to help.
For over 30 years, I have advised people on where and how they could do better. Leadership, career planning, and personal effectiveness are my sweet spots.

What can I tell you...
What can I tell you from over 3 decades of work as a social scientist, clinical psychologist, and coach to thousands of people around the world?
Wanting to be better is an important first step, but the tricky parts are these:
- Getting crystal clear and specific (but not ‘small’) on the better you want and why.
- Selecting the smartest highway, from where you are now, to your ‘better,’ all informed by the most relevant science.
- Adding the right accountability and rest stops so you will stick it out beyond the inevitably hard moments.
- Early detection of changes that require adjustments.
Think New Year’s resolutions. Universally appealing. Rarely successful.
I bring better to getting better.
Here’s a snapshot of how I think:
- Perfect is not possible. The word should only be used for compliments (“Dr. Laurie, your advice is perfectly timed!” “Mom, you deliver your suggestions so perfectly!”).
- Better is a worthy goal and standard. Do not see it as ‘the way’ to perfect. See above.
- The key elements of achieving better are: 1. taking the time to develop a smart plan that anticipates where other noble folks have derailed and what you will do differently; and 2. following it, as the world keeps spinning.
My purpose: offer specific and practical guidance and support that leads to ‘better’ where it matters most to you.
