CrisMarie Campbell has been coaching leaders and consulting with teams and organizations for over 20 years. What she learned about leadership, teamwork and dealing with conflict came when she was training for the Olympics as a rower.
What CrisMarie loves best is helping people be the best they can be to get the results they want. She believes in leading authentically and congruently produces the most effective outcomes. She applies what she helps others do to her own business and life.
CrisMarie’s coaching focuses on three main areas:
1. Coaching executives and leaders to be more effective by developing both backbone and heart. She coaches to align the leader, the team and the organization to the leader’s vision, making the most significant impact. This includes coaching the leader to:
proactively deal with the stress that comes with the territory of a high-powered position;
leverage their strengths and recover from failures transforming them into powerful assets;
develop a plan of action for themselves, their team and organization, to make progress and see real, tangible results.
manage their direct reports to high performance using an effective feedback model
increase their self-awareness, self-responsibility, and influence – modeling what they want their people to do; having effective crucial conversations;
2. Consulting using a model of Path to Great Results through Teams – off-sites with leaders and their direct reports to develop trust, clear up differences through healthy conversations, and develop an effective strategic and tactical plan for moving forward as a team versus a series of silo’d organizations
3. Developing and delivering Smart and Healthy Leadership Development programs that help leaders have the most impact on the effectiveness of the organization by being congruent and authentic.
