I am determined to help you lead at your highest best.
“It’s not how many times you get knocked down that count, it’s how many times you get back up. ”
—George A. Custer
When it comes to creating and facilitating deeply connected relationships in organizations, I believe I am the best. I have worked with Generals, Presidents, CEOs, Founders, UN Officials, and co-created sessions using my In Great Company methodology to bring disparate people together to create solutions they didn’t think possible.
My groundbreaking research and methods focus on the concept of emotional connectedness as a way to create trusting, positive, values-based movements inside of organizations to inspire peak performance.
I am passionate about the work I do, am driven every day to perform at my peak, and I want you to have that same drive for yourself and those within your organization.
Working with Louis Carter
Lou is such an amazing talent. He has helped me and my organization so much! I highly recommend Lou and his firm! Lou is a person of integrity, highest character and amazing intellect. He has helped me lead through some very challenging issues, always keeping me focused on what matters when noise is all around us! Thank you Lou!!
I’ve known and worked with Louis for over 15 years. His customer focus is off the charts and provides the very best thought leadership and coaching available today.
Louis is one of the most intelligent and genuine people I have ever met. He is a thought leader who combines theory with practice and offers hands-on solutions to everyday talent challenges.
I’ve known Lou for more than a decade and in that time have found him to be an extremely creative, visionary and thoughtful leader who has a keen sense of what leaders and organizations need.
Louis is insightful, creative, solution-oriented, open and easy to work with. He works hard to create a good product with the interests of the end-user in mind.
I have a simple, straightforward, SPARK model that works EVERY TIME. But it takes work.
Collaboration is a common business buzzword, but systemic collaboration is different. It gets to the core of true and functional collaboration—where collaboration becomes a part of the inner workings of the organization and its decision-making processes.
Because positivity is a cultural contagion, emotional connectedness is achieved when individuals use it in a unified way to move forward together to achieve results.
ALIGNMENT OF VALUES
Organizations that place an emphasis on higher-order qualities such as honesty, integrity, and resonance with personal beliefs, drive emotional connectedness when leaders and peers embrace these common values.
Perhaps the most important of the five elements, respect is the element that catalyzes all of the others to drive peak performance. A sense of emotional connectedness becomes far deeper in environments where respect is established as a type of social currency that is exchanged reciprocally.
Achievements feel hollow unless both the individual and organization experience a benefit. Killer achievement delivers a combination of financial and emotional upside that amplifies the effect for everyone.
I wrote the book. Literally.
The surefire way to boost business growth and team effectiveness: Make sure employees are emotionally connected to the company. In Great Company presents a practical new approach to ensure that employees love their workplace and perform at their highest levels.
