Scott and daughter

You know that a people-first approach is the best way to lead. I do too.

And though you know it to be true, you struggle with what that looks like on a day-to-day basis. Where do I start? What do I say? How do I interact with my team differently than I do today?

I help you answer these questions. I help you define your purpose, identify your core values and leadership strengths, and then help you create a roadmap for your day-to-day interactions. Before you know it, you are leading with your heart. You are leading with love. And as Kahlil Gibran said,

"Work is Love made visible."

As with all servant leadership experts, my own development path shows a dedication to lifelong learning. I received my BA from Arizona State University, my MBA from Western International University, and my MS in Leadership from Grand Canyon University.  Most recently, I completed Ken Blanchard’s Situational Leadership II®, and the Lego® Serious Play® Methodology. (Nobody said that servant leadership can’t be fun!) Additionally, I am pleased to share that I am a guide at LifeGuides®, helping people by sharing experiences that I have had that they are currently experiencing.

My clients and other collaborations include leaders from Carvana, Los Alamos National Laboratories, Sociedad Minera Cerro Verde, Seagate Technologies, Career Revolution, Climax Molybdenum, Wright State University, and Rebuilding Together Valley of the Sun.

Some Hopefully Fun and Interesting Facts About Me:

Collage of Scott and his daughter

I have a seven-year-old (as of 2022) daughter – Kaia is the love of my life, who makes life so interesting and fun!


Lost a bet, wore a dress - I made a bet with an employee (I was a manager) and the loser had to wear a dress to work. Unfortunately, I was the loser. Thank goodness for Muumuus!


The Library Tour: When you think about a cross-country motorcycle trip, stopping at libraries in various small towns is probably not part of that picture!


I love classic vehicles - I enjoy working on and showing classic cars and trucks. I currently own a 1972 GMC Sierra 2500 long bed, with a meaty 402 engine, a TH400 transmission and factory air conditioning – It’s pretty dang quick for a ¾ ton truck!

I built a 2600-piece LEGO® Ducati motorcycle. Don’t worry. It's a part of my job as a LEGO® Serious Play® practitioner!



I stopped playing guitar 30+ years ago - until my then 6-year-old daughter asked me about the guitar in my bedroom.


My first career was as a sports journalist in Phoenix. There’s nothing better than getting paid to interview the likes of Ken Phelps (Oakland As), Walter Davis and Alvan Adams (Phoenix Suns), and Doug Williams (Arizona Outlaws.)

I lived in Hawaii for 18 months because I had to. We were on our way to Australia and planned to buy tickets in Hawaii because they were cheaper there. Our non-stop partying however kept us from making it to Australia or having enough money to make it back to the mainland.


My family and I were guests of John Wayne for a week.

In college, I once spent an evening drinking with author and gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas; Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail). I’d like to tell you more, but I can’t.
