Truth flows from universal law, not personal views.
Interests: As a former corporate executive, business owner and management consultant, Agno understands that in the business world, we don't speak much about the heart. Yet, since all businesses are ultimately people serving people, our life's work should come from the heart. Long after your products or services have been delivered, the feelings and knowledge shared during the business relationship remain. Coach Agno believes that people need connection, belonging and meaningful contribution. They need to know that their life and work matter. Many people find that personal or career transformation is an excellent time to better understand their life's work and direction.
