Speaking and Consulting 


Many of us crave more happiness and fulfillment in our professional and personal lives. Not surprisingly, happier and more fulfilled people can more easily tap into their creativity and positive energy. This translates into success and sustainability for themselves, as well as their companies.

My presentations focus on how we can lead more productive, meaningful, and purposeful lives and create and grow more successful, sustainable businesses.

Here is a sample talk:
Crucial Keys to a Whole Person Business Culture

By Carrie Vanston, Corporate Cultures That Rock

Studies consistently show that when companies and their people feel connected with each other and a larger purpose, both are more likely to succeed and thrive. This presentation provides three keys to a strong business culture and provide ways to bring these attributes to our businesses, rather large or small or in-between, and to each of us as individuals.
Crucial Keys include:
Engage: Connect to Each Other
Innovate: Connect to the Future
Transform: Connect to our True Selves
An articulated business culture gives a clear path to mutually beneficial understandings on day-to-day interactions. This results in happy people, lower turn-over rates, and higher productivity, profit and sustainability. By having a clear vision of “how we do things,” we can more effectively bridge and overcome differences at all levels and connect at deeper levels.
Come to learn, share, and connect with your community. Let’s each increase our effectiveness in creating successful businesses that support each other and positively impact our world.

I am happy to tailor presentations to individual audiences and I always like to have an interactive element to my talks.

  • Crucial Keys to a Whole Person Culture
  • Three Keys to a Thriving Culture

Fortune's "100 Best Companies to Work For" have
out-performed the S&P 500 Index by a ratio of 2 to 1 since 1998

I remember like it was yesterday when I read an article about John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods, talking about Conscious Capitalism and how the best companies take all their stakeholders, particularly employees, into account, and are not just
stockholders. Wow! Three weeks later with my company paying half the cost and my church (yes, my church--where there's a will, there's a way!) paying the other, I was on a plane to San Francisco to attend the Conscious Capitalism Conference. And I've never looked back.

Turns out that research consistently shows that companies that have cultures that care about their employees and other stakeholders are the most likely to succeed and thrive--and the most likely to change the world. Not surprisingly, companies that are great places to work have lower turnover rates, better recruits, happier customers, higher productivity, and higher profits.
At Corporate Cultures That Rock, my team and I use our expertise to help you develop great cultures where caring and engaging leads to happy people and successful and sustainable organizations. Who doesn't want happy people? And what a bonus that it leads to a larger bottom line, too! Wherever you are on the spectrum of a healthy culture, improving it or keeping it fresh is tantoumont as you move into your best future. Having a person with fresh eyes and some great tools can make a huge difference to that future.

Here are some of the areas that I help my clients create and grow strong cultures:

  • Exeuctive Coaching and Development
  • Core Energy Dynamics
  • Culture Growth
  • Performance Management

Here are some of the tools we use:

  • Energy Leadership IndexTM Assessment
  • Energy Leadership Development ProgramTM
  • The Gallop Q12 IndexTM
  • Khourus' Performance PlatformTM

I'm a consummate connector and enjoy bringing people together to share, collaborate, and connect. I love to help individuals and organizations connect to their maximum energy for happiness and success. Please reach out to me if you would like to know more.

Develop your people and your organization so you, too, can become a "Best Company to Work For."
