We can work with any organization or leader who is willing to take a good, hard look at where their strengths and weaknesses lie and put focus towards improvement. We love a good challenge and will whole heartedly partner with our clients.

I enjoyed working with Christa at Chicago Tribune. She supported the packaging department with dedication and enthusiasm and was able to impact individuals of all backgrounds, business levels and cultures. She helped me grow as a leader through constructive conversations. I consider Christa a great business partner would recommend her highly.
Operations Director, Tribune Company
Christa was an excellent business partner in her role as HR Leader for Yum! Brands. When she arrived in the Denver market, Christa was able to quickly build relationships through her coaching. She positively influenced me and our managers with her focus on our development and encouragement to consider our longer term careers with our everyday decisions. One of Christa's greatest contributions was her willingness to provide feedback that a person didn't want to hear, but needed to hear, to be a better leader. She was also an excellent example within our region of the power of providing recognition to those around her. With her help, our region achieved the #1 Balance Scorecard award for the year. I consider Christa a partner, a true professional, a person I would call on for advice and someone I would love to work with again.

Christa was a great promoter of recognition at YUM! Brand Foods. She understood that recognition should be personalized, creative and should consider the needs of the recipient. More than anything, she encouraged those she coached to find opportunities to recognize others.
