Consulting to Technical Leaders Book

You’re invited to this page because you are a well-respected leader in technology, human resources, or organizational consulting and because you are interested in helping technical people become better leaders.  As the author of an upcoming book on the subject, I’d love to get your insights and suggestions on how to accomplish such an important mission.

A little about me…

I have a doctorate in psychology from UC Berkeley and a bachelor’s in engineering from Harvard. I’ve been an organizational consultant for over 20 years after working as an electrical engineer in Silicon Valley for 8 years. I created my company, Flexible Work Solutions, Inc., in 2005 to help companies assess and develop leadership skills, and my passion is working with technical leaders. You may have heard of my podcast called Reinventing Nerds. I’m currently writing a book to be published by the American Psychological Association (APA) in 2021 called Consulting to Technical Leaders: Transforming Technical Experts to Managers and Leaders.

  • If you’re able to spare 30 minutes for a telephone interview, I would be extremely grateful. I am offering to match 30 minutes of your time with 30 minutes of my time to consult on any leadership question you may have, including Working from Home. Please use this link to easily schedule a time that is convenient for you or simply reply to this message.
  • If not, I’m also grateful for referrals to other leaders you know who might want to participate. Please use this form to easily submit your referral, or if you prefer, forward this email to your contact as a personal introduction and cc me at
  • Alternatively, I have a 10-minute survey you could fill out which covers some of the same things in less time. Click here to access the survey.

How you can help…
As a part of the research for the book, I am interviewing technical leaders, consultants, and human resources leaders to better to understand the challenges that technical people face when becoming managers. Your insights would be extremely valuable.

I am grateful for your time and support and as a show of my appreciation, in addition to offering free consulting, I am offering a raffle prize:

Each completed interview, referral, and survey gives you one raffle entry for a $50 Amazon gift card.

This is my way of saying I recognize how valuable your time is and I appreciate you sharing it with me.

If you have any questions, thoughts, or information to share, please email me at or call me at +1.619.807.8165. To participate in any of the above ways, click here.
