Consulting and Coaching:
I consult with groups to locate shared values, identify group mission, improve communication, and strengthen interpersonal dynamic. My work is informed by the teachings of the Harvard Negotiation Project and its many off-shoots, as well as by principles of consensus building, Buddhism, and my own theater practice. I am a certified mediator in the state of Rhode Island. I also have a small coaching practice, working most often with clients who are artists or theater professionals who are feeling stuck and wanting to move through creative, professional, or personal transformation. My process is based in objective and compassionate curiosity, and structures an investigation in which core values are identified and nuances illuminated, allowing choices to be made, decisions activated, and actions taken. The process generally lasts a few months. References available.
