Our History

He is a member of the International Coach Federation and has over three decades of experience coaching executives and training teams. He holds a business degree from the University of Washington. 

Peter's close collaboration over the years with Dr. Stephen Covey, bestselling author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People; Lou Tice, author of Smart Talk; Rob Lebow, bestselling author of A Journey Into the Heroic Environment; and Dr. Julie White and Rick Tate, authors of the bestseller People Leave Managers…Not Organizations! has provided Peter with essential mentoring skills, unique experience and deep insight.
