|"First as a CIO of a rapidly growing company and now as I sit on several Boards of Directors, I've dealt with many significant issues and critical decisions. Over the last 10 years, Dean has helped me dissect and reflect in a calm setting. His coaching was invaluable, and definitely contributed to the goals which we achieved."|

former CIO, WMC Mortgage
Dean has teamed with leading executive coach Barbara Healy to develop a comprehensive framework for coaching and professional growth.
The Transitions ABCD framework considers four key transitions in the course of one's career: from student to team member, to manager, to executive. At each of these transitions, we learn new things - new paradigms, new skills, and new behaviors. In parallel, we grow as people, both in terms of our political savvy and our personal power.
Between Barbara's focus on Transitions A and B and on personal growth, and Dean's focus on Transitions C and D and political strategies, they team to offer leaders whatever is needed in coaching and professional growth planning.
Then he works with you to plan practical solutions, drawing from a wealth of implementation experiences and proven systemic change processes.
