Christy believes that taking one’s leadership to the next level is an “inside out” process. Her coaching with leaders is both reflective and results-oriented, helping them become better versions of themselves. She guides leaders to combine character strengths, competence, and personal connection for greater impact on their organizations…and in their lives.
Leaders from Facebook, LinkedIn, Visa, Yahoo, Disney, Salesforce, Brocade, PG&E, Lucasfilm, Gilead, Dolby and Charles Schwab have all benefited from Christy’s strategically oriented, high-energy and thoughtful approach to executive coaching, facilitating, speaking, and consulting.
Christy loves skiing, hiking and the outdoors. She also enjoys cultural experiences, and took a half year service adventure around the world with her husband and 2 kids, living in India, Kenya and Honduras.
