Ron is a self-described “clarity fanatic”. For him, nothing is as freeing and uplifting as attaining the profound clarity that emerges through diligence, compassion and deep insight! Ron discovered that beneath our desires, intentions, purposes and identities, the heart can guide us with a clearer awareness, a phenomenon he calls Primary Intention™. He applies this philosophy in helping his leadership and personal clients move powerfully through the space between where they are and where they truly wish to be. The benefits for his personal and leadership clients?
