I’m on a life-long mission to spark a revolutionary shift in how we relate to one another at work. Transforming organizational culture to be more authentic and connected is what gets me up in the morning.
I’ve conducted thousands of workplace investigations, duked it out as a lawyer (not my thing, as it turned out!), authored a book on workplace drama, written regulations implementing California’s civil rights laws, and traveled the world to talk about workplace conflict management.
And it doesn’t stop there! I combine all this professional expertise with my perspective as a sassy Salvadoran immigrant. Taken together, my personal and professional experience spells solutions that are thoughtful and practical. I’m really good at spotting the kindling that sparks conflict in the workplace. I can help you clear out the brush, so that you spend less time putting out fires.
What I’m about
What I’m NOT about
What does cultural transformation look like?
Are you ready to make deep transformational changes, so that everyone can feel and see the progress to a more fun, more fair organization?
