Note from Gregg: I help people craft a life that matters and live and lead with purpose, integrity, and impact. I do this through my work with leadership, startups, social enterprise, personal growth, and work choices and changes: connecting the good life with good work. My intention is to help people integrate life and work by aligning purpose and values with aspirations and actions. I help people and organizations thrive with excellent, ethical, and enduring work.
I have an array of interests, including the good life, personal and professional growth, purpose, values, leadership, startups, social impact, sustainability, education, innovation, and spirituality. Many of my interests spring from my mentors and formative years in university, when I took courses like “Theories of the Good Life” and learned about the power of questions, dialogue, and interdisciplinary inquiry. I enjoy writing, reading, meaningful conversations, traveling, exercising, music, beaches, tea, the Denver Broncos, World Cup soccer, and being a husband and father.
