Renee demonstrates a unique talent to maximize her clients’ capacity for thought leadership, results leadership, people leadership and self leadership. I have had the honor
of collaborating with Renee on work around senior-level team building. Her insights with workshop design complete with a willingness to offer both form and void allowed for the powerful conversations to emerge. This made all the difference to the senior team that
was in its infancy 18 months ago and are now highly functioning and producing best in class business results. It was a joy to work with Renee and partner with her in what has become one of the most powerful team experiences of my career.

Renee brought an extraordinary listening to both me as a leader and our staff that resulted in significant learning through models and coaching that was customized to our needs.
Her gentle, supportive approach challenged me to adjust my lens and see the staff and the organization in a new way. The staff is taking responsibility in new ways; I am listening in new ways. Instead of feeling frustrated after seven years, I feel like I have a new staff, new challenges, new possibilities for learning.

Renee facilitated Myers Briggs Type Indicator training for my team at ADP. As a result of her insight and expertise, she was able to help us collaborate and communicate better and become a higher performing team. She is passionate about what she does and would be a strong asset to any organization needing help in building their teams.

I've had the privilege of working with Renee as part of a CEO selection process. Renee provided expert consultation in administering and interpreting Hogan Assessments for final candidates and provided support in debriefing the results and implications with the chosen CEO. It is Renee's clear commitment to customer satisfaction, professionalism in all aspects of her work, her openness to constructive feedback and attitude of partnering that make it an extreme pleasure in working with her. I would recommend Renee in a heartbeat!
– Healthcare Executive and Physician Leadership Coach committed to transforming healthcare through transforming leaders.
My company hired Renee to work with me as an Executive Coach for a 6 month engagement which concluded this month. In the time we worked together, I was inspired by Renee's creative approach to problems and her knack of bringing forward exactly what I needed to think more about to grow and develop as a leader. She has a good balance of "tools" (theory, books, models) and importantly real life experiences to draw from that enrich the coaching experience. I would highly recommend Renee as an executive coach for someone looking to learn what is motivating them below the surface, and to find practical, applicable ways to adapt behavior and outcomes.

Renee's coaching and consulting capabilities heighten a CEO’s leadership and self-awareness. I have referred her to a CEO who, through her coaching, enhanced their leadership performance and employee engagement. She helps build clarity around objectives and an understanding of others' perspectives. Renee is both engaging and creative. She has worked with a team of highly effective consultants and myself by facilitating learning models and tools for us to use with CEOs and teams.

It is without hesitation that I recommend Renee Charney for any leadership development or training assignment. We have utilized Renee's services several times and find that she has an uncanny ability to focus on results, be a change agent and help build consensus. Renee is a true business partner and ensures she fully understands all the nuances of your business environment before providing recommendations or services. Renee is very creative in her approach and is an absolute pleasure to work with.

Renee's thoughtful approach to understanding the dynamic of the group and engaging
our team in the hard work of change was fundamental to the progress we continue to make. The concepts we covered in our sessions were directly applicable to our day-to-day operations and are serving us well in achieving our longer-term strategic objectives.
She is a powerful observer and listener which serves her well as she helps her clients come to understand the underlying reasons for certain behaviors and habits. Renee made quite an impression on our team: we regularly “channel” Renee in how we question process, describe our interactions, etc.

In response to the current coronavirus crisis, I have decided to cease all in-person meetings and workshops for the time being. By working together to limit contact with the virus, we will hopefully be helping the broader effort to slow the progress and keep the most vulnerable members of our communities safe. As many of you know, I offer individual and team coaching and facilitation using tools such as Zoom or Skype. Please do let me know what you need and how I may contribute to bringing your team members together to learn and practice ways of working more effectively. I also offer virtual, micro-learning sessions (15-30 minutes) to explore ways to work effectively together while working remotely. I will update you here and on social media outlets as soon as possible for those opportunities; please also reach out with what you need. I look forward to seeing you online, and in person when the time is right. Meanwhile let’s do our best to be mindful and compassionate for the wellbeing of ourselves, coworkers, families, friends, and neighbors.
With gratitude and best wishes, ~ Renee Charney
