I help HR executives solve talent challenges related to, for example, employee engagement, performance management, succession planning, organization redesign, learning and development, culture, strategic HR and change management. I also help HR executives expertly manage their own functions, with emphasis on transforming HR business partners into strategic partners to the business. I am an editor of HRBP Quarterly magazine.

CEB, now Gartner, is a company of contrarian thinkers and problem solvers. Whatever function or industry you're in, you've read too many articles and heard too many ideas that mostly repeat what you already know. Our success depends on finding and sharing with you the best ideas in business...we want to provide you with "aha moments."
