She utilizes cutting-edge training, knowledge and personal experience to help her clients maximize their potential by developing strategies for success based on individual learning styles.
Kricket helps clients get focused and finish what they start. In addition, Kricket offers her clients additional support through her SMARTSuccess® Club online accountability program.
Through her work with individual clients, Kricket identified that within traditional business systems, many talented and innovative individuals didn’t “fit in” – and the harder they tried to do so, the more they (and their business) shut down. She knew that these creative and innovative individuals not only needed permission to work in their own style, they also needed help to create strategies and structures to support that unique working style.
Kricket is known for her dynamic and interactive presentations. Understanding that creative thinkers need space to process and create, she delivers engaging workshops that are both informative and entertaining, often to standing room only crowds. Kricket has been featured in Forbes Woman Online and interviewed by USA Today. Speaking engagements include small businesses, networking groups, radio interviews, telesummits and national conferences.
Prior to starting her own company in 2002, Kricket spent 12 years working with major corporations in international and internal communications, small family businesses and not-for-profit management teams.
Kricket has a degree from the University of Texas in Psychology and Organizational Communication. She is certified as a coach through the International Coach Federation, the Coaches Training Institute and the ADD Coach Academy, and has additional training through the Center for Right Relationship, Team Coaching International, the Edge Foundation and Target Training International. Kricket’s strengths are in communication, planning, productivity and performance.
