“I have found my coaching relationship to be one that provides a set of expert eyes that is not bound by the paradigm in which we are operating. She has no vested interest in making people happy, nor supporting the status quo, nor making things comfortable. She has challenged me to see the strengths that I hold and that are held by the team AS WELL AS the opportunities for growth, and to enhance both to the benefit of individuals and the team. Charrise has reconnected me with the concept described in a quotation from Rosalyn Carter, “A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don't necessarily want to go, but ought to be.”
“Within a month of beginning my work with Charrise, the initial results of her coaching began to manifest. Seeds were sprouting. My understanding of my role as a leader became clear. My presence was commended by teammates & supervisors, and I began to enjoy a level of effectiveness I'd not experienced previously. Becoming more effective led to efficiency, which naturally had a strong positive impact on my ability to manage time. As I wasn't managing crises & putting out fires, I began to enjoy my work more, which circled back into a stronger leadership presence. Success began to feed success.
With the guidance & motivation provided by her, my colleagues & I are empowered to lead our team through a period of significant transition in not only our workplace culture but, most importantly, in our core philosophy of service delivery.
“It’s been a great experience having Charrise as my business coach. She has helped me to see what I’m best at, and coaches me on ways to work around what I’m not so good at. Her ability to get me to close the gap between thought and action has allowed me to make more money and help more people. She is personable, ambitious and accessible; always there to help me identify what holds me back, and to help me create a strategy to win.”
“Since we have started with your coaching services, the amount of business we have received as a direct result of your coaching has increased dramatically. As always, you wow us with your brilliant ideas, your ability to think “outside of the box”, and your ability to motivate and inspire us to reach the goals we have set for ourselves. Your role as an idea sounding board and accountability partner has been especially indispensable in helping us to make wise decisions about how we invest our money and our time. All in all, it’s great to have someone in our corner, rooting for us each step of the way. In my opinion, every business, no matter the size or the type, would benefit from your coaching services and I will recommend you to every business owner that I know.”
“Charrise has helped me evolve into a person of brutal honesty, dealing with only the truth. Her program has also helped me identify very quickly, if I am dealing with someone who is like glue on my shoe stuck in victimhood; and most importantly, the courage to help that victim help themselves.
Her process empowered me to make tough decisions on a timely basis. It has allowed me to be a fearless leader and to hold people accountable. I now have the courage to finally identify and employ a performance driven team.
“My time with Charrise has been life changing! About a year ago I was bogged down in fear, sadness, and exhaustion. Finding the strength to speak my truth was, quite frankly, just too overwhelming during the day to day business of an executive. No one around me (or so I thought!) could see the pain I was in.
Within my first session I felt the stitching-up begin! I knew my loneliness as an executive was melting. With each session I experimented with concrete strategies to lead a more productive work and personal life. The voice that I uncovered over the past 10 months has astounded me! My anxiousness and hesitance has lifted. My fears have been transformed into false voices. I have learned that by slowing down I accomplish more; by risking vulnerability I am a better and more confident leader.”
"From the first perspective-shifting question she asked in our very first coaching session, Charrise has had some of the most powerfully positive impact of any coach I've worked with since starting my business. Because of my time with her, I am profoundly clear on the value my work brings to the world, and I am a thousand times more confident charging what I'm worth. As a result, my bottom line is set to double in the coming year, my coaching is having more impact than ever, and I'm taking my practice by storm. I could not be more grateful for the opportunity to work with this force of a coach!"
“Charrise is a fabulous strategic thinker. She has exceptional listening skills. She is able to "hear" the thought behind your words. That ability helps us get right down to the real issue or challenge without spending a lot of time. Thus, I always feel that our sessions are productive.
Charrise has been fantastic at keeping me focused and encouraged when reaching - or even defining my goals - seemed impossible. Coaching asks you to look at your future in terms of goals you have for your life, define a plan for achieving them and keeps you on track as you approach your destination. It is very empowering and very powerful. Working with her has changed my life.”
