From Inertia to Innovation

Stuck in the status quo? No matter how small, Ideas are the stepping stones for standing apart from everyone else.

From Confusion to Collaboration

Isolated by geography? Silos slowing you down? Everyone is so busy with their own goals, we lose sight of the bottom line mission. You can get beyond hesitation to exhilaration of teamwork.

From Missed Opportunities to Agility

Taking forever to get started? Getting derailed by changes?You CAN overcome. Grow skills to confront reality, make tough choices, and adapt.

I help people thrive at work.  As an engineer, a manager, a speaker, and an executive, I’ve worked with thousands of people at dozens of companies. Everywhere I go, I see breakdowns and breakthroughs; idiocy and innovation; pain and promise. I believe the difference between the two is leadership, and whether our managers actually do it well.

I believe a better workplace leads to better business results and vice versa, and my job is to make that happen by empowering our teams to succeed, equipping our managers to lead, and enabling our executives to build high performing organizations.

If you are frustrated that your teams are not living up to their potential, I can help.


“When I went to Jesse’s class, he showed me how to sift through all the agile jargon out there. I loved it so much, I sent more of my team.”
-Barbara, CTO Fragrance.net

“Jesse helped me expand my vision, gave me constructive feedback and pushed me beyond what I thought was possible. Whether it be at the program level or the personal level, Jesse is an excellent coach.”
-Steve, VP Marketing 

“When we wanted to unify our product lifecycles, we to be relevant to our business, but grounded in the latest practices in the industry. Jesse worked with us to craft a program that had both the substance and the sizzle to motivate our staff.”
-Michelle, Product Director

“When I wanted to transform my large health care company, Jesse was the first call I made to equip my staff with new ways of working. He effortlessly explained industry techniques into our context. When another firm recruited me to do the same for them, I knew I had to call Jesse for an encore. “
-Leon, Healthcare IT Leader
