Danielle believes that we are all connected and that success can only happen with the cooperation of others. With a background in Industrial and Systems Engineering and more than two decades of training, executive coaching, and most importantly, real-life, in-the-trenches leadership experience, her views are sometimes radical but always refreshing. Hailing from Chicago’s south side, Danielle’s street-savvy personality and genuine love for mankind fuels her ability to help others connect, communicate, and collaborate. Transforming teams into high-performance powerhouses that respond to change quickly, stay laser-focused on the customer, navigate uncertainty with velocity, and handle competing priorities with ease is her superpower and arguably the only sure path for a company of any size or any kind to thrive in this digital era. Standing firm with science and experience that trust is hands down the #1 force multiplier for productivity, Danielle has delivered unprecedented results as a project management consultant and Lean/Agile transformation coach for best in class companies like UPS, Kohler, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Yellow-Roadway, RR Donnelley, Allstate, US Foods and start-ups like SpotHero and Apartments.com. Her proven peak performance strategies have also served several individuals and small businesses and are highlighted in her upcoming book “Act Like a Lady, Think Like A Wolf.” Driven by a strong sense of community, her most impressive accomplishments are the lives of hundreds of inner city youth and aspiring women entrepreneurs impacted through her nonprofit performing arts and empowerment programs. In her non-existent “spare time” you can find her on the dance floor, reading, eating some juicy carnivorous meal (scotch included) or being a personal barber for her two boys Dylan and Dorion, a serious gamer and fitness guru.
