A little

If you are looking for someone to help you become the leader you know you can be, you’re in the right place.

Growing your business or department means hiring, developing, retaining and engaging great talent and too often it feels like we have to do it on our own.


I believe that you

  • Deserve the coaching and support you’re looking for.
  • Want a place where you can be heard and where you feel safe asking the “scary” questions.
  • Are looking for simple and practical ideas to grow your business through people.
  • Know you have it in you to be a great leader; you just need someone in your corner.

About Me

For almost 20 years, I’ve built small start-up teams and led large, global teams in turnaround circumstances. Through those experiences, I’ve consulted junior managers and C-level executives as a global talent leader for large and small, national and global and for-profit and philanthropic organizations. I’ve seen the impact that a poor leader and a great one can have on individuals, departments and companies.

I started this site to help you set aside any anxieties you have and step into the best professional role of your life – leader.

We have not yet reached the limit of human potential. A little over 100 years ago, the first plane took flight. Sixty-six years later, we reached the moon. Less than ten years later, we landed on Mars. Where are we going next?

Taking a more earth-bound view, this site is focused on exploration as well. Businesses both big and small look to find that edge in the marketplace by seeking and developing talent. The posts are intended to take different facets of managing talent and hopefully providing some interesting and practical ideas for practitioners of talent management, small business owners and really anyone who is interested in exploring what motivates, develops and inspires us. Where can we go next?



The kind of ability that comes without training—something that you’re born with. It is often contrasted with skill, which is an ability acquired and developed through practice.


The ability, coming from one’s knowledge, practice, aptitude, etc., to do something well.



Personal growth is the process by which a person continually develops to reach their full potential. Personal growth is an important part of a person’s growth, maturity, success and happiness.



Personal development consists of activities that develop a person’s capabilities and potential, build human capital, facilitate employability, and enhance quality of life and the realization of dreams and aspirations.


Most of the photographs on this site come from my father, Dr. Kirit Vora.

He is a practicing physician in Michigan and an ‘almost’ professional landscape and fine art photographer. When asked about his vision, he states that he likes to see grand vistas and images that can be enlarged and hung on walls.

“I want to share the same emotion I had at the time of shooting at the grand site. I would like viewers to, hopefully, feel the same enlightenment that I experienced then.”
