Why Flashpoint? “You will work with an amazing team of insightful and responsive professionals who happen to be really wonderful people.”
You’ll find her enhancing the capacity of leaders and their teams to build the personal and professional resilience they need to bring their best to their work, their constituents, community, and families. Holly has a passion for the biology of behavior and leadership, called “neuro-leadership,” which is why she writes and researches “resilience.” She loves explaining and writing about why we do things and how we can do them differently (an extension, perhaps, of her medical training!). As a skillful and practical trusted leadership advisor, Holly listens and provokes thought to help leaders give voice to their visions and values while moving from “intent” to “action.”
Before FlashPoint: Holly has developed a breadth and depth of knowledge about human behavior and motivation from her career in Healthcare, Education, and Management. As General Manager and Coaching Practice Leader at Sonoma Leadership Systems, she designed and facilitated workshops, promoted “thought leadership” through writing and speaking, and consulted with organizations both large and small on developing and delivering leadership initiatives.
Education and Expertise: Holly has a PhD in psychology and a master’s degree in human development. She has a university scholar designation from the University of Pittsburgh. She is a credentialed Executive and Leadership Coach and a family business advisor and also holds licensure as an individual and family therapist and registered nurse practitioner. Holly is a certified facilitator for The Leadership Challenge® and the EQI.
After Work Hours: Holly has been an active volunteer in her community through Rotary. She also facilitates a leadership group for social profit executive directors. An avid reader and hiker, she can often be found outside at her "Pomegranate Farm" in Sonoma with friends and family.
