Ten Minutes with Leadership Coach, Deanne Carter M.Ed.
What was it like to join Clarity Compass Consulting?
I find it important to do deep work that makes a difference in the life of the client as well as the broader organization. At Clarity Compass Consulting, I have the opportunity to apply years of work as a psychotherapist helping individuals get results in their lives, to helping clients get significant results on the job. The Clarity Compass is a tool that I have used in my private practice and I know its effectiveness to help people and propel them into action.
Why did you choose to join Clarity Compass Consulting?
I was drawn to this work when I witnessed the transformation that occurred using a strategy from the Clarity Compass. I was able to experience the true depth of this work.
How does your past experience apply to your work with Clarity Compass?
Throughout my career, I have worked with individuals and groups on the nuances of communication. Finding the story behind the story. So often, it’s an aspect of the exchange, rather than the core issue itself, that’s the sticking point. Those can be resolved. I get to watch the weight come off my client’s shoulders and their brain light up with an expanded perception once those sticking points are eliminated. The Clarity Compass is a process that flushes out those nuances and reveals the pathway to solutions.
What is a daily practice that you can’t live without and why?
I schedule in moments of observation and reflection between clients. This helps me have greater awareness with my clients and be more attuned to what is happening with them.
What are you looking forward to the most this year with Clarity Compass Consulting?
I love helping people make shifts in their lives one small change at a time. It is the small changes that often lead to the most sustained and significant positive results over time. Success in business is often won or lost on the relationship building skills of leaders. Thankfully, building emotional intelligence and improving relationship skills are seen as more important than ever to organizations. It is wonderful to see that executives know the importance of investing their resources into improving the quality of their relationships.
