Carrie is the first outside consultant our Leadership Team has worked with where instant trust was earned and results were achieved. Immediately, I was struck by Carrie’s ability to listen and pick up on the challenges we faced with empathy and insight. She did not jump to advice, but rather listened intently and gained insight into our team in a very short time frame. Her calm, rational demeanor has made her a trusted partner for all the personalities on the team. She is able to adapt her style based on the needs of the individual and does not lose sight of the big picture objective in the process.Carrie has successfully reframed the role of Executive Coach in the minds of our leaders and has won over our hearts and minds with her caring, empathetic, personal approach. She coaches in a way that allows each of us to internalize the feedback and have the tools to succeed. She has found a way to connect to each leader personally building trust in a 1:1 way that positions her to be the true expert of our team dynamics.
Since she started advising us, Carrie has become an integral resource for the team and I’m regularly told how much her advice and council are appreciated. As a result of her hands-on approach, she’s been able to head off issues that very much could have escalated and severely injured the studio. She has collaborated closely with me as CEO as well as other members of the leadership team to make strategic recommendations about the health and direction of the business. With her help and continued support, the studio is stable, growing and the team is motivated and producing exceptional work. She’s a dream to work with.
Carrie’s energy and enthusiasm is contagious. She is always approachable, willing to help anyone, and very adept at multitasking. In a rapidly growing agency, Carrie successfully staffed our teams in a timely manner; she is tenacious when it comes to her work and regardless of the ask, she always goes above and beyond the call of duty! In addition to the staffing needs, Carrie spearheaded the Mentor Program and Manager’s Training Programs for the first time at our agency. Both programs were a great success and I truly thank Carrie for being so focused on the company culture given how rapidly we grew.
Strategic and insightful but also approachable and caring, Carrie effortlessly juggled her external recruiting efforts with managing our current team and strengthening our internal culture. Her warm nature, wonderful eye for talent and unshakable integrity made her an absolute pleasure to work with.
There are many talent professionals that are smart, hard-working, organized, courteous and fast. Carrie is all of these things, but also genuine and respectful of EVERY person she connects with, regardless of their personal position or level within a company or industry. This is what sets her apart. Certain qualities cannot be taught and it takes a strong level of intuition and experience to be able to make sound decisions on behalf of an entire company. She is a confident, independent thinker who sets procedures quickly and is always prepared for retention in environments where rapid change is part of the daily routine.
