Team Facilitation

You & the CliftonStrengths Assessment

It all started with a simple question:

Do you have the opportunity to do what you do best at work every day?

When only 30% of the respondents to this two-million-person Gallup poll answered strongly agree, they realized they had hit on one of the major factors of fatigue and discontent in the workplace, and at home.

The CliftonStrengths assessment, previously known as the StrengthsFinder, is a practical, effective, and enlivening way to discover your strengths and put them into practice, so you can spend your days truly thriving.

According to Gallup*...

Companies and Teams that play to their strengths experience higher engagement, productivity, sales, profitability, higher customer ratings, and lower absenteeism and turnover.

Since 70% of the variance in team engagement depends directly on the manager alone, the best thing you can do is invest in a strengths-based culture, one that embraces the uniqueness of each individual, and gives you the tools to make sure the sum is greater than it's parts.


*It’s the Manager – Jim Clifton, Jim Harter

You’ll leave with permission to use your strengths, manage around your weaknesses, and discover the ease and calm that comes with living and working in alignment with what you do best.

The Thriving Women Symposium

This video, taken at the Thriving Women Symposium, a day-long TED-style event for women entrepreneurs, mentions the Enneagram as a way to discover your Super Powers, starting from minute 3:57.

Other methods I use to help facilitate your team

There’s been a lot of buzz recently about the Enneagram; this is an age-old system for personal growth. Are you curious to know what all the fuss is about?

You’ve likely heard people say things like, “I’m an ESTJ!” or “I’m an introvert!.” If so, they’re referring to one of the most widely used personality profiling systems around.

Meet your guide

I’m Kris Carey, a master reinvention coach, deeply experienced at helping solo entrepreneurs and tiny business owners revisit the work they do, and how they do it, so they can produce the results they’re after. From working with people over my 20+ year coaching career, as well as personal experience, I know the best place to start is by knowing yourself and what brings you alive, so that all aspects of your life and business are in alignment. 

I have first-hand knowledge of what it’s like to run a business while having a life, and have reinvented myself, my life, and my business multiple times over. While it’s been scary more than once, it’s also been incredibly rewarding and worth the effort.

When I’m not working, I debate Star Trek vs. Star Wars with my dog, Finch, while we listen to Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue for the fourth time on repeat.

I truly believe that reinvention is possible, and look forward to working with you to achieve yours.
