Leadership Development - It's an inside job.
At a time when technology is radically transforming how we all do business one thing remains the same: No one can do it alone. We need each other and we need to work together.
Leaders need to know how to build a healthy team culture by aligning and unifying their teams around a shared purpose and vision. They must be willing to provide the tools and resources to get work done. They must be highly skilled communicators who know how to listen and tell the truth always-even when it's hard. They must be able to set expectations and hold people accountable. And, they must ensure that their team members feel valued and empowered to do work that is meaningful to the organization's mission.
When leaders and teams are ALIGNED they become UNIFIED and if they work as a cohesive whole they get excellent results and THRIVE!
align & unify 2 thrive
I live in the Pacific Northwest in Sumner WA. In 2017, I decided to strike out on my own and created Align & Unify 2 Thrive so that I could help individuals, teams, and organizations define and build healthy cultures to fulfill their highest purpose.
Together, with my family I share ownership of a growing multi-generational business that so far includes 8 pizzerias called Farrelli’s Pizza and an Irish American restaurant called McNamara’s Pub & Eatery. From 2006-2017 I was the Director of Organizational and Leadership Development for Farrelli’s. I designed and implemented the processes that allowed Farrelli’s to consistently create healthy, vibrant, and PROFITABLE working environments in all locations. I also designed the organization-wide training programs for Farrelli’s which ensures technical skills, professional growth, personal development, and a leadership pipeline so we can continue to grow and nourish neighborhoods. I currently serve as leadership consultant with Farrelli's.
I have a MA from Bastyr University in applied behavioral science with emphasis on organizational and leadership development.
