She combines well the art and science of coaching such that clients feel “invested in” and not in need of “fixing.”

“I was fortunate to work with Christie over the past two years to drive my professional development and growth. She helped me develop a personalized toolkit of reminders, actions, and processes that maximize my effectiveness across various situations and with a full range of stakeholders, from direct reports to senior leaderships. Christie brings a broad perspective and great listening skills, and guided me to realize my own insights. Most importantly, she helped me see when I was blocking myself and how to get out of my own way. With these new skills, I’ve improved my effectiveness and progressed into higher profile roles. Thanks Christie!”
