Ronald McDonald House Charities of St. Louis

“Char is very perceptive of people’s strengths and weaknesses. She’s very good as serving as a facilitator in a meeting with a lot of different dynamics. She’s able to push the group along while pulling everyone in. She makes people within the group feel comfortable and helps them address the key components of being a strong team. We had a lot of issues with trust within our team. She brought in different strategies to help us break down our weaknesses and build on the areas where we had strengths and some footings. We just think the world of Char!”

— Dan Harbaugh, President, Ronald McDonald House Charities of St. Louis


Mississippi Lime Company

“I hit a stalling point with an assignment, and you could also say with my career, and I was pointed towards Charlotte. She and I have been working together for 18 months, and she lead me through a process of evaluation, including a 360 review. It was one of the toughest things I’ve been through professionally. How I viewed myself was different than how the rest of the world was viewing me. She led me through that process with encouragement, and straight, tough talk to keep me motivated. Today, I’m incredibly more self-aware. She gave me the confidence to decide what I want to do, what’s making me happy and not happy, and what I want to change.”

— Kent Womack, Director Operational Excellence at Mississippi Lime Company; Change Management and Organizational Development
