pLink Highlights and Happenings
The return of routine.

It’s that time of year again, where pumpkin spice and gourds abound, and we all feel a little more settled as we fall into our routines after a summer of fun, long, light-filled days. We consider this our “New Year” at pLink. As our clients get re-engaged, focused on work and on finishing the year strong, the work-world seems abuzz again.

As a coach, he draws on an extensive background in and knowledge of human dynamics, project management, leadership development, and high-performing teams. With his support, his clients reach new levels of achievement, satisfaction, happiness, and personal freedom in their lives.
