Corporate Culture Crisis

Leaders and managers face challenges from the digital veil that threaten culture, innovation, and the synergy that can only be found through collaboration in real life.

Working from home and excessive screen time creates a social desert, lacking human connection. Four years after lockdowns, businesses and institutions feel the effects of limited live interaction. The effects will only compound.

I’m not advocating returning to the 9-5 office model, but we must allow live teamwork, training and development to bridge communication, innovation, and collaboration gaps.

My solution is live, in-person workshops for team building, learning, and development called Bright Spots.

Let’s rekindle the spirit that makes ordinary teams extraordinary – we’ve got a lot of work to do, in person!

Brand Strategy

Your company is an extension of your values, mission, and vision. I help you hone your brand strategy (who you are), so you can attract your people (clients and employees), so you can achieve your goals.

Caroline Van Sickle speaking at Venture Atlanta

"I wouldn't be nearly as effective of a coach without personal experience both in the corporate world and as an entrepreneur."

If we
knew better,
we'd do better.

My coach used to say, "If we knew better, we'd do better." Most of us don't intentionally make mistakes, wreak havoc, or squelch the light and creativity in our employees and colleagues. Instead, we fail to look up from what we repeatedly do to ask the right questions, "What's not working here?", "What is working?", "What can I do better?" and "What am I contributing to both the problem and the solution?" 

In our work, first and foremost, we learn that humility and self-love go hand in hand. With a sense of humor and gentleness, we normalize the human experience and cultivate self-mastery individually while contributing to higher-functioning organizations collectively.

HOW I WORK WITH COMPANIES 

I coach entrepreneurs, companies, non-profits and academic institutions on ways to align your team with your core values, mission, vision, and purpose. This alignment is critical to professional and personal integrity and therefore foundational to a healthy organizational infrastructure and culture.

Alignment of mission, vision, core values and purpose with hiring, business ops, and functional business decisions.

Continuous learning & development at every step & at every level; integration of an on-going stack & build learning infrastructure.

Creating and maintaining a strong culture in a hybrid work environment; offering flexibility with a solid cultural core.

Leadership coaching & professional development; customized assessments of the team, company, & individuals

Coaching Philosophy

Suppose we can come to the table with self-agency—the ability to take responsibility for our thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and consequences and the courage to change undesirable circumstances by changing ourselves. In that case, we’ve exponentially elevated the playing field. Self-agency recognizes one’s internal power, responsibility, and ability to impact others positively. The opposite of self-agency is giving our power away through shifting the blame or using force to get back what we frivolously gave away. Such blunders undermine the organization’s potential. Power creates change. Force creates a counterforce that keeps us in gridlock. To navigate turbulent times and life's perpetual uncertainty, we must first identify what is within and outside our control. This discernment is critical and a skill that can be learned and honed.

I HELP INDIVIDUALS AND ORGANIZATIONS DEEPEN THEIR AWARENESS & OVERCOME SUBCONSCIOUS DRIVERS THAT INHIBIT THEIR POTENTIAL.

One of my priorities is to help businesses, teams, and individuals understand themselves and their brains through neuroscience, cultural conditioning awareness, motives and core values, and personality assessments. I help my clients interpret how the brain works, how it is programmed, and how the brain and body work together to optimize executive and creative function. I am trained in brainspotting as a modality to remove invisible obstacles and unleash creative and relational potential.

THE BIG PICTURE

We have every opportunity to create the world we want to see. It all starts by changing within, and everything "out there" changes. To change our outer world, we must first change our inner world.
