Cory brings over 25 years of experience working with teams, individuals and various clients in corporate, non-profit and governmental organizations. Working as a coach, consultant and facilitator, Cory works with teams to maximize their collective contributions and with individuals to grow in their leadership.

As a Certified Evidence Based Coach (CEBC), Cory is able to meet each client wherever they are at on their development journey to help them customize a plan for transformation. To deepen clients’ experiences, Cory also helps people understand and overcome their Immunity to Change through a process he was certified to facilitate.
