Powerful Programs

Gregg will challenge you to raise your sights about your life and work so you can be who you are, love what you do, and connect with and serve others.

Wondering what’s next? Lacking clarity and direction? Seeking more?

I know what it’s like. I’ve gone through big transitions in work and life, starting with big questions about whether and when to make a change. I’ve worked with many people who wonder, “What’s next?” And I’ve faced tough personal and professional challenges.

You don’t have to settle. Why not raise your sights about your life and work?

Step 1: Meeting

Meet with Gregg so he can learn more about your context. No expectations. Just an open exploration of the issues and challenges.

Step 2: Proposal

If you like, I’ll draft a proposal for your review and input, with a road map for how we can work together and start making progress on your goals and aspirations.

Step 3: Start

If you decide to proceed, we’ll work together and make adjustments as needed to ensure maximum enjoyment and impact for you. The journey starts here. 

You want a good life with good work, rich with vitality and connection. You want to live with purpose and passion, making progress toward your highest aspirations while enjoying life, making a difference, and feeling good. To do that, you need clarity, direction, and clear steps forward.

I’ve seen the common traps that can hold your back. I’ve fallen into many of them. I’m here to help you get out of them and move forward with purpose and passion.
