As a business coach, it's my job to help leaders determine what is missing in their business, that if provided, would make a positive difference. We begin by talking about what is working, and what is not working. In this discussion, we are not looking for good or bad, right or wrong. This is very empowering because in corporations, it's very easy to play the blame game. Your need to be right creates the need for others to be wrong, and if something didn't go well, surely someone is to blame. Let's fire them. :)

Next, we talk about what is missing. Often, it is something simple that the business leader could not see because they don't have a clear perspective. So much time is spent working in their business, that they can't clearly see what is obvious to me; an outsider with no dog in the race. Sometimes it gets more complicated; recognizing that something is missing gets us a long way toward providing it. Business leaders value an outside perspective, especially when it is followed with a keen action plan and strategy.

Which brings me to our next question: What is next? The breakthroughs that occur during this process are mighty and powerful, but only if they cause determined action. This is where we begin to put together strategic plans to attack the pieces and parts of the business that need sharpening.

What is the reason for this process? When the leader is truly committed to the process, and when the butts are in the right seats, phenomenal growth will occur. The business flourishes by gaining a true commitment to open communication and dialogue, including all employees in the creative thought process.

My coaching practice focuses on creating balance of mind, body, and spirit. A fully engaged person at work is happier at home, and a fulfilling home life adds to a person's effectiveness at work. It just makes good sense! This process of questioning is also effective for people to ask themselves regarding their personal life. The questions: What is working, what is not working, what is missing, what is next, will lead to an enriched life led with a vigorous commitment to success and happiness.

Author's Bio: 

Charrise McCrorey is a powerful facilitator of transformation. She transforms lives and businesses every day and makes it her business to do so in the most generous, respectful and extraordinary way. As one client put it: “Charrise is gifted, lovely, amazing, spirited, and giving”. And he isn’t alone! Clients all over the world are better off today for having known and worked with her.

Charrise is a sought-after transformational coach, speaker, trainer, facilitator and author. She powerfully and effectively helps her clients to expand to their fullest capabilities in their businesses and their lives.

She has racked up an incredible 28 years in the world of business, from receptionist for a construction company to General Sales Manager in the Advertising industry, serving in marketing, operations and various executive management roles in between.

She has learned first-hand the value of diversity in people and cultures, including how they think and operate differently inside numerous roles in business. She has learned the value of building sustainable relationships, spanning over several years. And most importantly, she learned the significance of being happy in her work.

She has learned what all people have in common. We all have a tendency to get in our own way when we most need to move forward. We hide from our own true power. We benefit by replacing our fear with love and action. This has brought her to create her ground-breaking coaching program: FULL OUT AND FEARLESS, where Charrise leads people out of the world of mediocrity and into the world of possibility. In the words of one FULL OUT AND FEARLESS client: “The program is like no other program I had been in. It was and still is all about me and what I want and how to get it. There is no script. No bullet point presentation. Full Out & Fearless has helped me evolve into a person of brutal honesty, dealing with only the truth.”

“My work as a business and personal coach exposes me to many people who are seeking a different kind of life” says Charrise. “During our transformational work together, we discover what stops them from having the kind of life they want. Each and every time, the answer relates back to some kind of fear… There is hope.”

Charrise has experienced corporate burnout first hand. It nearly killed her once when the stress of her career made her very ill. She learned the hard way how stress affects health, and how sneaky it can be. As a result, she lost her job. A few weeks later her husband was diagnosed with Melanoma. Strike one, two, and a matter of about 6 weeks. Enough to cause anyone to drop full-time into fear.

Instead, these powerful experiences led Charrise to discover her gift and love for coaching. Her husband is now cancer free. And she is filled with gratitude for the experiences that have led her to her service as a coach.

She received her professional business coach certification through, and has since served literally hundreds of people, and consistently facilitated in the transformation of businesses, families, relationships and lives.
