Kohl’s Leadership Meeting
“After having the pleasure of hearing Christine speak on more than one occasion previously, she was the first person that came to mind when trying to plan a team offsite. My goal for the offsite was to create a professional development opportunity that related to each attendee both personally and professionally. Christine was able to modify her curriculum to connect to the team’s specific work experience while simultaneously giving personal and relatable examples that made us think, laugh and that resonated deeply with each of us. Christine guided us in developing a ‘purpose statement’ as well as defining “purpose vs. goals”. She gave us tangible tools to use within our career, but more importantly…to use in our everyday life. Her personal interaction style was refreshing and real, and I could immediately see the positive impact she had on the team. I would highly recommend Christine for any similar engagement.” — Andrea Pease, Technical Design Manager, Kohl’s
