OUR CLIENTS SAID
“Cory was an excellent speaker for our Business Leaders Seminar at Women in the Marketplace. He took the time to engage early to understand the audience and adjusted his material to be relevant for everyone participating. He allowed himself to be vulnerable in a room full of strong, female leaders. Our ladies walked away with some very practical ways they could prioritize their lives in the midst of the constant demands on women and moms today.”
“I’ve worked with a lot of coaches and Cory is the best. He has focused on my personal growth over my professional growth and what I’ve found is that when you grow personally you always grow professionally, but not necessarily the other way around. In a world where all coaches only pay lip service to personal growth, Cory stands out. He has made me not only a better businessman, but a better man.”
“Cory Carlson is a great executive coach as he helps business leaders increase their impact at both work and home. His blend of character and business acumen is what business leaders need today. I have hired Cory to coach 3 of our top leaders, as well as lead our new Leadership Development year long program. I would recommend Cory to any business owner looking to increase the impact of their business leaders.”
“I am grateful we hired Cory and for the lasting impact his coaching has had on our team. His passion and personality, blended with his direct approach and real world experience provide a great environment for transformation and growth. Plus the tools and concepts he uses can be used at all levels and are great for teaching across the entire organization.”
“The time I’ve spent with Cory is single handedly the most impactful to the leadership of my family and professional career. It is not only the concepts he brings to the sessions, but the discernment and accountability are what has driven my growth. “
I have done other executive coaching sessions that always left me with more questions and not confident to take the next step to advance my career.
The amazing thing about Cory is that he empowers you to find the answers you are looking for rather than questioning you or giving you the answers. His ability to actively listen, empathize with any situation, give perspective and real tools to effectively take the lead and face challenge really made a difference for me and were also noticed by those around me.
Cory is a natural and inspiring giver. He will give you as much as you need as long as you are committed in mind, spirit and time. He is always flexible and accommodating to my schedule which also helps in ensuring that I am constant and motivated in the sessions.
If you are “stuck” or don’t know how to move to the next step (or don’t even know what the next step is) and how to make things better, I strongly recommend you consider a chat with him and experience his sessions first hand.
“Cory is a great executive coach. He took me to a new place of strength by simply leading me to new places as a leader with simple and powerful tools that stick. (FiveCapitals.net)”
“Since working with Cory from Five Capitals, life as a whole has improved. The work we have done together has been phenomenal. It’s very enjoyable and is easily translated into all aspects of life, personal and professional.
The best thing about the Five Capitals, is that they already exist, so you don’t have to learn something difficult or revolutionize your life to achieve results. With a little bit of effort and evaluation, I believe anyone can receive the same growth and benefits I have. Working with Cory has changed the way I look and think about lots of different situations, giving me the posture to respond instead of reacting.
Every day I become a better leader and a better person, I would 100% recommend this course to any company or individual.”
Five Capitals has been the one of the most positive and influential decisions in my life. The concepts and strategies are founded on guiding principles that are proven and well documented since the beginning of time. I continue to build into myself (and others as a result) with every workshop I attend.
Cory Carlson does a terrific job of engaging participants and relating the Five Capitals platform to real-world applications, both personally and professionally. Summary – recommended and time well spent.
The Five Capitals Impact Day is a game changer. It provides practical tools and solutions to balance your life, work, and family, and breathe new life into all of them. You will walk out a different and better person after this training.
“Cory worked with our business during 2017 as part of the Ocean startup accelerator program. His coaching helped our team to prioritize goals both personally and professionally, discuss difficult topics early on, find an individually satisfying work-life balance, and to understand and communicate our vision and mission. I’d highly recommended Cory for leadership coaching.”
“One of the most solid leadership coaches I’ve ever met. He helped our team identify issues and figure out a practical plan to get on track. I highly recommend him!”
I’m a better man, husband, and father because of the coaching I have received from you guys. Now I get to share the things that have impacted and changed my life, in hope that others get to taste and see the goodness and freedom that comes through coaching and ongoing encouragement and accountability.
“As with many coaching relationships, mine began with Cory at a pivotal time in my career assessing do I pivot and go a different direction or stay true to my calling. Some coaches coach from making statements. Great coaches ask great questions to lead to a process of self-discovery. And, that’s what happened with Cory over the course of a year in coaching with him. I can’t recommend his care and candor enough. Cory is a leader in his own rite and gives excellent coaching to other leaders. He asks great questions and leads great discussion. My life, family, and organization are better because of time spent in coaching with Cory.”
“Our Ocean and Unpolished programs exclusively train entrepreneurs and uniquely integrate business training with a faith journey. Cory pioneered the faith journey and honed it by leading sessions with dozens of entrepreneurs. Cory’s real world business expertise combined with his knowledge of scripture salient to entrepreneurs helped catalyze our programs. We now have content that will impact hundreds of future start-ups and could literally change business culture in our region.”
Cory helps leaders ranging from entrepreneurs/founders (such as Ocean in Cincinnati) to CEOs of small to medium size companies, and Executives of Fortune 50 companies.
All teams have a culture, whether on accident or on purpose. Coaching provides common tools and language to help drive and create culture.
