Q: What led to your decision to join?

The Cprime employee that was managing the client account I was joining. He was smart and genuine. I still get excited when we get the chance to work together.

Q: Describe your job in 25 words or less.

My passion is to partner with business leaders in creating an environment where cross-functional teams are able to easily fulfill their responsibilities to successfully deliver customer value in pursuit of satisfying the organizational vision.

Q: What’s your favorite part of the job?

My favorite part of being a coach is designing and facilitating workshops. It is an opportunity to be informative, creative, and expressive. Workshops are a great way to connect with the people I’m helping.

Q: How would you describe your approach to leadership?

In my opinion, leadership is not a characteristic or an activity, but instead is a behavior only displayed during an adverse time. Leadership is how you chose to respond when you are experiencing feelings of uncertainty, risk, and emotional exposure.

Q: Three things that many people don’t know about me:

  • I am an amateur gourmet chef
  • I own a demolition hammer (jack hammer) as a part of my home improvement toolbox
  • I have written a few rap songs about software delivery. I also have one about Agile Transformation.

Q: If you were a superhero, what superpower would you want to have?

Who says I’m not a superhero? An Agile Transformation Coach is definitely a superhero! I will admit that not all of us have the same powers or even the same levels of the same power. But a good Agile Transformation Coach uses their power of empathy on a daily basis. It is also a power that gets stronger the more it gets used.

Q: If you were to write a self-help book, what would the topic be?

Who says I haven’t already written a self-help book? It is around this concept I call Elevation Exceleration; a combination of three words: ‘Elevation’ meaning to rise in station, and the two words ‘Excel’ (out perform), and ‘Acceleration’ (increase in speed/efficiency) concatenated into one unique word, ‘Exceleration’ (out perform at a faster pace). Available for purchase on Amazon, my book entitled ‘Elevation Exceleration – 7 Steps to Accomplish Your Best Self” is about improving your station in life by leveraging concepts from Agile Software Deliver and accomplishing your goals faster than you ever have before.
