My passion is supporting leaders in reinventing their organizations for resilience by empowering employees to out-create risks and innovate for a better world for all. Through my work with Pinchot & Company, an intrapreneurship consultancy, I have advised and trained leaders in half of the Fortune 100 as well as in many NGOs and government agencies, creating widespread engagement in product, process and cultural innovations, in order to create resilient futures for organizations and all they influence. I have also advised or been a principal in numerous startups in the areas of manufacturing, government, service, technology, and education.
I consult with senior leaders and intrapreneurs to accelerate the engagement of all employees in collaborative innovations needed to foster a better future for the company, employees and the world. In addition to innovation consulting, I offer private executive leadership coaching.
My current research focuses on collaborative, cross-functional intrapreneurship and the application of intrapreneurship in driving profitable sustainability initiatives. I am also mentoring cross-organizational groups of intrapreneurial leaders to accelerate solutions to systemic economic, social and environmental problems.
I co-founded the Bainbridge Graduate Institute (merged with Presidio Graduate School) here MBA students develop into innovators, bringing sustainability, social equity and prosperous resilience to their firms and the world.
I have degrees in philosophy, education, and systems psychology from Wellesley/Stanford, the U. of Oregon and Goddard, and a PhD in organizational systems from Saybrook University. I have been awarded a Purpose Prize and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Social Venture Network.
I co-authored The Intelligent Organization: Engaging the Talent and Initiative of Everyone in the Workplace and wrote the PhD dissertation, Learning with Corporate Sustainability Leaders: Systemic Barriers and Collaborative Openings to Addressing Climate Change.
