Bonnie's Background

Play Video

Let Bonnie guide your listeners to address abrasive leadership behavior, retain valued employees, and improve morale.

Early in my career I worked in a dysfunctional workplace. It was the norm rather than the exception for the executive leadership team to turn a blind eye to high-performing leader's angry outbursts, condescending comments, and public humiliation.

Rather than leaving, I chose to stay. The experience along with the guidance of a wise mentor gave me life lessons to navigate the dysfunctional landmines that have stayed with me throughout my life. Little did I know then how that experience would be the catalyst for my work today of coaching leaders at top companies to replace abrasive behaviors with emotional intelligence skills.

What if you had a fast and proven framework to turn around abrasive behavior and protect the health of your organization?

Whether your listeners need:

  • A boost of courage to take a stand against abrasive behavior
  • A roadmap of how to intervene with high-performers exhibiting abrasive behavior
  • A plan to overcome conflict avoidance

I'll be a guide for your listeners every step of the way.
