founder of Manager Method®
I worked as a lawyer in BigLaw (Ogletree Deakins), and leading companies (including McKinsey and Yum! Brands). I’ve also served as General Counsel and Head of HR for the nation’s largest luxury media company (Modern Luxury). I’m a LinkedIn Learning instructor on people management, co-host of the “HR Besties” podcast (a Top 10 Business Podcast on Apple Podcasts and Spotify) and have been featured by CNN, Financial Times, HR Brew and Buzzfeed — all providing a skill set to benefit your organization and redefine people leadership.
At Manager Method®, we believe that employees are more than just “resources” – they're individuals with unique needs, aspirations, and potential.
Our journey began with the simple idea of treating employees like humans - and teaching managers exactly how to do that. This principle drives everything we do. We're passionate about using real-talk training and tools to develop managers into true leaders who inspire, motivate, and empower their teams.
We provide engaging training, speaking and tools that are exactly what you’re looking for. To get a sense of our style, check us out on social media or LinkedIn Learning.

We Are More Than a Business.
At Manager Method®, we pride ourselves on our core values. We value the organizations (and the people that make them up) in our community.
We value your time.
You have a full plate at work (and in every other aspect of life). We know you want to do your best and have the right outcomes. Our bite-size trainings save you time in your employment needs — so that you can have a well-oiled machine and focus on what drives you.
We value leveraging the power of each individual's contributions.
Every person in your organization matters. We provide coaching, training, and tools aimed at all levels of organizations — from individual contributors to executives. We want to help you bring out the best in each member of your team.
We value diversity.
We want to help create workplaces where individuals are treated the same — regardless of their gender, race, sexual identity, age, family status, military status, position, and any other characteristic. We believe that everyone in the organization should be treated with the same respect. So we’ve created standardized trainings and tools to help your teams "sing from the same songbook."
We value courage in communication.
So much goodness in the workplace comes from employees feeling empowered to speak up and provide ideas and information. On the other hand, so much conflict comes from employees biting their tongues because "it's how it's always been done." We help companies think differently and challenge assumptions to have lasting improvements.
We value treating employees as humans.
From the language we use in our templates and talking points to the trainings we conduct — we identify words and phrases that can help your managers treat their employees like humans. Whether an employee succeeds at your organization, or if it's not a fit, your employees are each walking billboards for your company. We aim to help those "billboards" send messages that you would want broadcasted to your customers, employees, applicants, partners, and communities.
