Using my problem-solving framework, shift your approach to tasks, obstacles and adversity to expand capacity, without the burnout.

Let me tell you about the ice cube that became the snowman…


Imagine your tasks and obstacles as ice cubes and your job is to melt them.

Next, imagine a huge pile of snow that represents anything that steals your daily capacity such as worry, drama, self-judgment, not saying no, resentment or change fatigue.

Melting ice cubes is easy. People make it harder by packing snow around them, turning ice cubes into snowmen.

The extra snow complicates work, causes destructive stress and steals performance capacity from talented leaders and their teams.

Using my universal problem-solving framework, I teach professionals how to blast through the snow.

The result is leaders get more done and are happier doing it, even in times of challenge and change.

Tactics and inspiration to build resilience, so you can unlock daily emotional and mental capacity to do and be more.


The Problem-Solving Framework

Once you’ve learned the concepts within this three-part method for problem-solving, you can overlay the framework onto any issue to get solution-focused faster. Clients use this to stop destructive stress in its tracks, avoid burnout and to minimize capacity-sucking barriers to performance.

situational awareness is step 1
step 2 is self awareness
solution activation is step 3
