BUILDING A HIGH-PERFORMING ORGANIZATION
LEADERSHIP IS HARD. WE CAN HELP MAKE IT EASIER.
Carter Fraser has experienced coaches who have BEEN leaders at the senior level. Whether developing or just supporting a leader, we understand the challenges of leadership because we’ve been there.
We have experienced coaches who can work with individual leaders to hone their skills. We can provide facilitation of meetings and workshops to ensure that viewpoints are shared and thoughts captured so ideas can turn into action.
DEVELOPING FUTURE LEADERS AT ALL LEVELS
DEVELOPING LEADERS IS LIKE PLANTING TREES. THE BEST TIME TO DO IT IS 20 YEARS AGO OR TODAY.
We have helped identify and develop talent from hiring through retirement. Each leadership level has its own challenges and we have tested tools and methods to accelerate development and teach core business “truths” that may have been “missed in business school”. Because leadership is NOT just about the leader, it’s about those they lead and serve. With our help, organizations uncover the BEST talent for the role.
IDENTIFYING & ACCELERATING POTENTIAL
HOW DO YOU “DEVELOP YOUR POTENTIAL” WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE YOU HAVE POTENTIAL? SOMETIMES, YOUR “BEST ROLE” IS NOT YOUR “NEXT ROLE” BUT THE ONE AFTER THAT. WITH CARTER FRASER, ORGANIZATIONS UNCOVER THE BEST TALENT FOR THE ROLE.
Data-Centered Assessments: Carter Fraser has over 20 years of experience using a variety of highly researched and proven assessments.
Coaching for Development: If you’ve never done a role before, how do you learn to do it right?
At Carter Fraser, we’ve DONE “leadership” and understand the challenges of new roles, new teams and new responsibility at ALL levels of an organization. It helps to have a guide as you grow.
REAL, ACTIONABLE, GROWTH-MINDED AND ALWAYS THOUGHT PROVOKING
Strategic & Action Planning: Regardless of the economy, there are ALWAYS opportunities for growth. We’ve helped organizations of all types/sizes prepare for growth and align their goals and talent to do it profitably.
Training: Whether with new hires or experienced employees, Carter Fraser makes training ACTIONABLE. Immediately. Every training has “take-backs” so learning is turned into capability. Our content isn’t “theory” but based on our experience working with organizations to prepare their employees to support profitable growth. We adapt best practices to YOUR organization.
Facilitation: We can help you get the MOST out of your important meetings. Having an experienced facilitator lets you and your team FOCUS on WHY you are together and helps you maximize your time. An outside perspective can help you think differently so you find better solutions faster.
Presentations: Kristi Dinsmore is a sought-after speaker who draws on years of experience launching, growing and operating for-profit and not-for-profit businesses. She brings insights from a variety of industries and has an uncanny ability to forecast “what’s next” and what organizations/individuals need to think/do to drive growth. Kristi’s presentations always have “take-aways” that change the way you think and work.
If you’re looking to make yourself a better leader or grow your business, I would highly recommend Carter Fraser. Kristi worked with myself and our leadership team for the past 6 years. Kristi has helped us all become better leaders as well as double our business and profitability by implementing her teachings.
COO Carr Supply
The time I’ve spent with Kristi has been an invaluable journey in my leadership development. Kristi’s use of individual assessment data provided me with insight on my capabilities and challenges. She provided me with practical, implementable tools that held me accountable and challenged me to think differently. Her coaching instilled confidence and reflection in the way I work with others. Her approach is thoughtful, direct and honest and she pushes you to be your best. My time with Kristi is immensely rewarding, both professionally and personally! Kristi is a great asset to any organization, team or individual looking to assess and develop their leadership potential
CHIEF PEOPLE OFFICER, RETIREMEDIQ
We are a rapidly growing business. Kristi has helped me enhance not only my leadership abilities but my overall leadership capacity so we can remain profitable as we grow. I am able to establish a clear direction and expectations for my team to support our growth. Having Kristi as a mentor and coach has helped elevate my game both personally and professionally. Kristi helped me realize my own strengths and how to utilize the strengths of others around me to make our team stronger than it ever has been.

McGohan Brabender first engaged Kristi (Dinsmore) in 2004, and 17 years later, it has cultivated into one of McGohan Brabender’s strongest and most reputed strategic business relationships. We value our partnership with Kristi for numerous reasons. The qualities that top that list include her business acumen, thought leadership, and candor.
Our “MB Learning Centers,” are among the most beneficial events we offer our clients. We are incredibly discerning with our speakers as our attendees have a certain expectation of excellence. The reason they have this expectation is that Kristi has set the bar over time. She is hands-down our most requested – and most followed speaker. We often joke that her fan club needs a name.
Our clients love Kristi for the same reasons. They recognize that her business intelligence is another stratosphere. Her ability to break down the highly complex into real-world applications through experiences, demanding greater expectations from yourself and those you lead, and hearing truths you don’t necessarily want to hear, are just three reasons that have helped Kristi achieve Rock Star status with McGohan Brabender and our clients.
Kristi has also helped me develop as an individual and executive leader over the years. And organizationally, McGohan Brabender would not be the same company had our paths not crossed back in 2004. If you ever have the opportunity to work with Kristi – DO IT!
