Like most business endeavors, I founded CiO with the purpose and mission of offering and building value for its customers and clients. It’s an unwavering, focused, and driven extension of my work ethic, working and expanding forward by building and improving upon experience.
My career in organizational and leadership development has traversed client relationships, strategic planning, and budget and operational analysis, allowing me to provide consultation to both those I’ve worked with and for. This vast exposure instilled in me a well-rounded view of the workplace environment, including processes and the human element.
Having worked in both public and private industries; covered both white- and blue-collar environments; and worked face-to-face with owners, senior leadership and executives, and front line workers of businesses and agencies, I understand the need for personal fulfillment, integrity, motivation, and investment. These experiences helped establish the foundation of all the analyses and consultations CiO provides to encourage organizational and individual development, evolution, and excellence. Value is added at every step.
With no infusion of value there is no success in any project, initiative, program, or plan.
In all of CiO’s work, the mission has ALWAYS been to provide the individuals, entities, employee groups a path to, and full realization and awareness of, the full potential they have in their human capital—their greatest resource.
CiO empowers its clients to realize their own set of tools and self-awareness to navigate their workplaces effectively and efficiently. Specifically, one-on-one coaching and group work services allow for an honest, safe, and productive conversation that builds to the client’s or group’s self-realization. It never solely provides the answers, but similar to mediation, asks the right questions, providing the client guidance so they execute that mindset in their day-to-day endeavors outside of the coaching partnership. The potential for greater evolution and improvement exists at every level, and in all of us.
The expectation is for all clients to realize and put into play their greatest assets, skills, and abilities–those they were aware of and those of which they were not.
Leadership does not begin when someone is entrusted with a leadership title, and that’s why CiO’s work begins at the student level–working to help students at the high school and college level hone, build, and refine their leadership–and continuing into the workplace. The CiO work in one environment assists the other to both help the younger generation transition to their next chapter while helping the workplace generations understand, grow, and improve their environments and themselves.
Should you either need any of the services CiO provides or have any questions, please let me know.

The other thing about this is not only the disregard for evolving and improving, but the fact that the environment has to keep recovering from people leaving. It's disrupted and upended and can't catch stable footing or consistency. #leadership #business #coaching twitter.com/AdamMGrant/sta…

@UnrevealedTips @susancain -Thought of you while reading this. Not that i thought like this when I was more of an introvert, but it's interesting to think my thought process hasn't changed that much. It's just more refined, and I'm better at articulating, harnessing, and interpreting the value.
