I'm the Managing Consultant for FranklinCovey’s 4 Disciplines of Execution and the co-author of the book The 4 Disciplines of Execution.
As Managing Consultant, I'm responsible for the 4 Disciplines methodology and the quality of delivery worldwide. I also regularly lead large-scale engagements, including the 4DX implementation for Marriott Hotels and the Ritz-Carlton Hotels, Kroger, Payless ShoeSource, and a number of large hospitals. I'm a sought-after keynote speaker for events ranging from small senior executive sessions to audiences in the thousands.
My career spans three decades of corporate leadership ranging from FORTUNE 500 organizations to privately-held companies, including more than a decade as CEO of an award-winning company recognized four times as one of the “25 Best Companies to Work for in America.”
In 2005, I was personally selected for the Turknett Leadership Character Award recognizing CEO’s who demonstrated the highest standards of ethics and integrity.
I hold a B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Alabama and a B.M in Music from Birmingham-Southern College and also serve on the Boards of two local companies, as well as the Siegel Institute for Leadership, Ethics, and Character.
I'm most proud of my wonderful marriage of over 30 years to my sweetheart, Donna, being Dad to two phenomenal young adults, Scott and Sarah, and “Papa” to three grandkids.
I'm an avid backpacker and a certified white-water rafting guide. I also hold a 3rd Degree Black Belt in Taekwondo.
