After years of working to rebuild challenged neighborhoods, Teri saw that while her work was successful on the outside, it often did not get to the root of problems faced by leaders and communities.
Eventually she found a deeper way of working that fully integrates personal and leadership development with practical business strategies.
HIGOL — High Impact Growth Oriented Leaders is the vehicle she uses to share this work with others.
This integrated way of working is rocket fuel. Client results are nothing less than astounding.
We help mission driven CEOs grow revenue and impact by 50% in 12 months.
Founder and CEO of HIGOL
Her lifelong passion lies in integrating eastern and western psychology, organizational behavior, business, leadership, and wellness. She is on the faculty of Dharma College, which offers cutting edge classes in such integration for those spiritually inclined, but not religious.
HIGOL works to align leadership behaviors with business drivers to dramatically increase revenue, community impact and evolve overall organizational performance. With over combined 80 years of leadership experience working in mission-driven organizations, the HIGOL team has lived through most experiences our clients are dealing with.
When not supporting clients or teaching, Teri can be found with her partner hiking one of North Carolina’s 41 state parks.
