Carrie Vanston
                                                        ​Goodbye "Fight or Flight," Hello "Win-Win"!


As a CEO, you being the visionary means believing in and driving initiatives by getting buy-in from the team so everyone understands where you are headed and they feel they on a bus to success.​ Even the most well-meaning, intelligent people get distracted and confused without a compass. When you align your goals and people, decision making becomes easier, engagement by all stakeholders is deeper, innovative increases, culture improves, and fulfillment and happiness increase.
With Carrie’s custom programs, bring your people together and ensure they are not only engaging but are energized and working in sync toward your highest-priority goals.

"I have had the pleasure of working with Carrie Vanston over the course of several years. Carrie gave a great presentation at the World Affairs Council about the importance of creating and growing business cultures that encourage engagement and innovation.
