Carrie George Leadership Coaching: Coaching that focuses on helping women realize their own strengths, envision and move toward the future they want, and hone and trust their judgment. Carrie coaches women when they are ready to challenge their status quo to increase their effectiveness, impact and fulfillment. Her goal is for women to experience the joy of living and working in alignment with their abilities, priorities, and values.
As your coach, I’m all in for you. I’m 100% on your side. I deeply care about your happiness, your sense of purpose, and you being a leader in your own life. I’ll ask you to reflect on who you are, on your values and what gives your life meaning, on where you find your strength and where you give it away, on your goals and the barriers to achieving them. I’ll help you wrestle with the big issues you face and I’ll query you about the learning from the small problems you tackle every day. I’ll share knowledge and experience when it’s relevant, but for the most part, you’ll be doing the heavy lifting. We all make choices every day, and my job as a coach is to help you clarify the decisions you make so that your choices are purposeful, consistent, and add up to a better whole.
As a businesswoman, a mother, and a volunteer, I often felt that I straddled completely different worlds, that I assumed three different mantles. Coaching allows me to bring all aspects of who I am to the service of my clients. Coaching allows me to think clearly about the path I want to take through life and who I want to be as I follow that path – and it allows me to help you do the same. Through coaching, I help you choose your path and be the true you, the you who’s there during your best, most powerful moments.
I’ve been a businesswoman for 30 years. I’ve worked as a consultant and manager at the strategy consulting firm Bain & Company, I owned a small manufacturing business, I worked as a VP of sales operations at Corbis, Inc, and I consulted at Microsoft. My experience encompasses large companies and small, and I’m comfortable working with everyone at all levels of a business – from the CEO to the craftsperson on the shop floor.
I was educated in Seattle public schools, attended college at Claremont McKenna College in southern California, and earned my MBA at Harvard Business School. Most recently, I trained and received my certification (CPCC) in the CTI Co-Active© approach to coaching, which perfectly matches how I work with clients. I've been back to Harvard Business School to coach women in the Women's Leadership Forum, a week-long exploration of women's leadership development.
I've also been active in the non-profit world and the local politics scene. I currently serve on the boards of the Washington Women's Foundation and Educurious. Previously, I was elected to the Mercer Island School Board and served as Board President for most of my term. I've chaired campaigns for a school bond and a city councilwoman, and I've actively campaigned for common sense gun legislation in Washington state.
I'm married and have two young adult daughters. I love Pilates, golf, friends, learning, travel, reading, and propelling women forward.
