Lead and Inspire

doing work together
Home: Welcome


You're only as good as your people - as good as your team

Center-Desk is focused on helping you achieve your goals by developing your leadership skills so you can lead an effective team.  My passion is leadership development and seeing the accomplishments that come from well led teams.  I define success as a group that works well together toward a common goal with members that enjoy what they do because they are empowered to make decisions, try new things and share in the accomplishments of the group.


If you're a new manager looking for someone to talk to about your own development, Center-Desk can help.

If you're an experienced manager or leader and want to prepare for the next level or improve your skills, Center-Desk can help.

If you have an idea but need help getting your team organized and moving in the same direction toward your goals, Center-Desk can help.

If you lead an organization without a structured leadership development capability built-in, Center-Desk can help.

“Leadership is influence”

John C. Maxwell

Home: Quote


We will meet your needs - individual coaching or across your organization.  Virtual sessions are the most common, but if needed on site, let's discuss.  One-hour coaching sessions - or longer if you need with flexible times.

I want to help - you tell me the best way to do that!  Contact me at or by signing up as a member of this site in the menu.

Discovery is important, so we'll discuss your situation, determine your needs and come up with a plan together. 

If you have people you'd like me to work with on your team, I'll write a proposal based on our discovery session at no cost.  During this session, it's important to know how your team is organized, its goals, challenges, and what you want to see changed.

Drop an email on one of the "contact" links, and tell me what you're up against ...

Leadership can be lonely.  That is normal when you are responsible for everything people do or fail to do.  You have to create some distance between you and your team.  This makes it hard to share your concerns and ideas as there may not be anyone to do that with.

That is why you have a coach.

An experienced leader outside your organization who is solely dedicated to you and helping you navigate the emotions of leading people.  And leading people IS emotional.  If you don't have anyone to talk to about leadership, I'd love to be that person for you.

What would your team's production look like if you improved their efficiency by 10% through better leadership?  A team of 5 people would gain an additional 20-hours of productivity per week.  If that sounds theoretical, consider what your team is spending their time on now...

We can quickly improve 10% with some basics for your team - clarifying team goals and people's responsibilities should do that.  And that's just the start.

Organizations always need a pool of leaders and potential leaders to grow.  You need to prepare for the next level of leadership.  You may not be thinking of it now, but you need to be ready for the next promotion opportunity.  Think like the leader above you - ideally 2 levels up.  I'll help you with that as well.

Your people need you to be a good leader.  Their lives depend on you.  People spend most of their lives in work environments - most of their time with leaders like you!  That is a lot of responsibility.  Make all that time worth it - for you, them and for your entire organization.
