CLIFF’S STYLE > As a social & serial entrepreneur who has launched companies in tech, real estate, finance, and education, Cliff is known for his humor, down-to-earth style, and no-nonsense approach to coaching, consulting, and forum facilitation. Cliff also brings 25+ years of high-impact tools to your biggest challenge. No hype or magic pill — Just real-world ESSENTIALS MADE EASY for life, careers, leaders & entrepreneurs.

WHERE TO START? Cliff’s signature courses (E-COURSES HERE) include SELF & TEAM DISCOVERY, GOAL & PROJECT PLANNING, and FORUM TRAINING. These 30-45 minute courses help you establish mission, vision, values, action & accountability. Each topic includes structured tools and protocols for Individuals, Teams, Boards, Leaders, Start-Ups and Gestalt Forums.

WHAT’S A GESTALT FORUM? A Gestalt Forum is a peer-to-peer meeting with Gestalt-style ground rules (the whole is more than the sum of its parts). Gestalt Forums often meet monthly to share life & business experiences in a highly-confidential environment to drive personal & professional growth. A Facilitated Forum has been trained by an experienced third-party coach who can help members focus on best protocols for growth, ground rules, and conflict resolution.

WHO BENEFITS? Cliff’s E-Courses, Live Training, and Customized Forums are ideal for Boards, Committees, Students, Educators, Fellow Coaches, Start-Up Teams, Creatives, and Entrepreneurs.
