"the secret of success is to do the common things uncommonly well."

- John D. Rockefeller


Who is Christine Lewis-Varley?
For more than twenty years she has served as a consultant, coach and advisor to thousands of men and women both in their professional and personal lives. An expert on the psychology of leadership, communication, sales, customer relations and 'outstanding' personal performance, Christine is a dynamic speaker and trainer and valued coach, mentor and guide.
Her passion...
What started as a passion for helping people transform their dreams into reality, has taken Christine into the boardrooms of top Fortune 500 companies as a coach to executives and, under her not-for-profit, into homeless shelters in Harlem to help women reclaim their place in society after suffering the atrocities of domestic violence.
People first...
Christine is a 'people person', passionate in her belief that all the knowledge in the world doesn't make an outstanding leader or an outstanding company. Valued, cared for, listened to, positive people drive great outcomes - people are the true intellectual property to be mined in every organization and yet well over fifty percent of the workforce feels disengaged and highly stressed. Research shows that insecurity, lack of clear purpose, a sense of being on the 'outside' and undervalued and overlooked all play a part of the unhappiness of the average American worker.
Creating change...
An intense desire to create change is what drives Christine. Whether working on the factory floor, coaching multi-cultural work-forces, uniting union and non-union work forces or 'gowning up' to advise on the best business practices of a 'clean room', she is in her element. Comfortable and effective working at all levels of an organization she crosses boundaries and builds bridges working with managers, supervisors and leaders to educate them on the vital importance of becoming an emotionally intelligent leader.
At the core of the matter...
Christine's unique style, warm personality and ability to build trust and create dialogue with people from all different walks of life has made her a welcome addition to Fortune 500 companies as well as fledgling start ups ... to Christine there is no role too big nor too small or a person who is too high nor too low on the corporate ladder to warrant her full attention. Christine is simply one of those people who believe that in order to succeed, we must first recognize our own strengths and weaknesses and understand the effect we have on our environment, both positively and negatively. Then you take action to change!
The outcome of poor management...
Negative bosses, bully bosses, bosses who don't listen, don't care and don't value their employees cause stress. Job stress is estimated to cost US Industry $300 billion annually, as assessed by absenteeism, diminished productivity, employee turnover, direct medical, legal and insurance fees, etc. About 1 million people each day are absent from work due to stress related disorders. Up to 80% of industrial accidents are due to stress. 14% of all workers say stress caused them to quit or change jobs in the previous two years. The international Labor Organization (branch of the UN), report that 1 in 10 workers are affected on the job by anxiety, depression and stress. The increase of job-related stress is "alarming" according to the 2000 survey, and costs to governments are as high as 4% of its GNP. In the US, 200 million working days are lost annually due to mental health.
