Here’s what some of our clients are saying:
“Carpenter Smith Consulting was masterful at bringing clarity to things and helping me to look at the big picture—something I was not doing.
When I’m caught up in the day to day, sometimes it’s hard to see 2 seconds ahead, let alone a year or two in the future. They helped me determine my best end result and gave me the tools to achieve that objective.
CSC was instrumental in my decision to leave a long time job and open my own firm. Their guidance and clarity helped me make a very difficult decision, a decision that has lead to the best career of my life.”
– Angie Galifanis, Owner/President @ Lawrence PR, Portland, Oregon
Carpenter Smith Consulting’s Executive Coaching has helped me become a better leader.
They’ve coached me to not avoid difficult discussions (they are needed in business and in life) but to approach them in a nonaggressive way.
I feel like much more of a natural leader, and I’m having a lot more fun now.
– Jeff Fuchs, City Engineer for the City of Tualatin, Oregon
“Working with Stephanie, as an Executive Coach has been the single most transformative and meaningful experience I’ve chosen.
I have enjoyed Stephanie’s keen and honest feedback as well as her commitment to my growth as a person and as a professional. I’ve made tremendous personal growth since working with her.
I learned where my power is and shifted the dynamics in many of my personal and professional relationships. Thanks to Stephanie’s advice and support, I entered and completed graduate school, and have made it through many professional challenges. She has also helped me establish my own business and aided my success.”
– David Hanna, Couples, Family, and Individual Therapist @ David Hanna Counseling, Portland, Oregon
“Linda is a great listener and powerful observer. She understands me, supports me, and challenges me. I rely on her wisdom and pragmatic advice around team dynamics, culture and leadership.
Simply put, Linda makes me better.”
– Katherine Durham, VP Individual Disability Insurance and Corporate Marketing & Communications @ The Standard, Portland, OR
“I found my sessions with Heather to be very insightful, practical, and useful, and focused on elements of employee behaviors which we normally don’t pay attention to.
Our discussions were helpful catalysts for some of the changes needed to help me grow in my new role at work as well as out of work. If someone is reactive in a meeting I’ve learned to pause and ask questions to understand more about the issue instead of reacting and responding right away.
– Kunal Duggal, QA Manager @ Logitech, Camas, WA
