Christie Garcia

Christie Garcia is a leadership coach, speaker, facilitator, and the founder of Mindful Choice. After ten years within the walls of corporate business, working as a recruiter and in sales management in the healthcare industry, Christie increasingly grew frustrated watching talented individuals be promoted to management and fail to reach their leadership potential.

She began to realize that these shortcomings were a result of the lack of resources available to develop managers into great leaders. These individuals had been praised for years based upon their own individual success (the “I” mentality). However once promoted, they struggled to turn the corner and adopt a big picture perspective and the “We” mindset. There was an unrealistic expectation and lack of guidance to help them transition into this new perspective and deeper level of self-awareness.

Christie realized that it was time to ditch the “old training model” and create programs focused on developing leadership effectiveness. She now seeks to reintroduce the human element into leadership development and immediately make an unignorable, positive impact on a person’s overall potential.
