I believe that the art of communication is what truly makes a difference in our multicultural world. That is what makes The Artful Communicator both an organization and inspiration. Being in the communications field for over thirty years, my expertise as coach, producer and actor allows me to guide individuals and organizations to find the ‘artful communicator’ that is waiting to be discovered in all of us.
An actor focuses on the craft of communication. We spend long hours learning not just to talk, but to watch and listen. We move beyond the words to the language we speak with our eyes, our body, our tone… to align what we want to say with the action of saying it. Equally as important, we learn to judge communication objectively, listening for the truth behind the words and acting to resolve potential conflict quickly and effectively without allowing personal bias to get in the way. I came to realize that these skills are just as valuable to individuals and companies. Being able to communicate with clarity and confidence in all settings, from the kitchen table to the staff meeting, is critical for success. Having the skills to master these moments is key to personal and professional achievement....especially in today's uncertain times!
With The Artful Communicator I've put this theory to the test, working with individuals and groups to strengthen communication, resolve conflict through dialogue, and smooth the process of change in their lives. And time and again, clients have seen remarkable results.

The more we discuss our differences we discover our similarities. No matter the language, thoughtful, creative communication is key to greater understanding.
Understanding conflict, and the choices we have in managing it within our lives, is how we transform destructive conflict into positive growth and healthy change, allowing us to discover our true potential.
J.P. Lederach described conflict transformation as engaging in constructive change initiatives that include and go beyond the resolution of particular problems. Conflict is normal in human relationships and conflict is a motor of change. And transformation is clear in vision because it brings into focus the horizon toward which we journey.
