Meet Christine Silver
Hello, I’m Christine, your ally in navigating people problems.
Throughout my extensive career in Human Resources and over 18 years as a business trainer and coach, I’ve learned one crucial lesson: the work itself may be challenging, but it’s the people-related issues that can truly disrupt progress. Miscommunications, performance hitches, and interpersonal conflicts – these are the things that cause distress and hinder productivity.
With more than two decades of focusing on these areas, I have equipped myself with a set of practical, straightforward tools that facilitate clear communication and foster healthy management practices. I bring to the table my training and experience in Conflict Mediation, leadership coaching with Coaches Training Institute (CTI), and a relentless commitment to ongoing professional development.
In the span of my career, I’ve had the privilege of training and coaching thousands of individuals across various industries, helping managers cultivate effective teams and improve their working relationships.
My approach is human-centered. I’m here to listen and solve problems, and I certainly don’t operate like a robot.
However, it’s not all business. I come from a lineage of hardworking, unique individuals who weren’t afraid to be themselves (my grandmother, for instance, fancied wearing a Keystone Kops hat and full beard!). My background is rooted in their resilience and a relentless pursuit of learning and growth, underscored by a Bachelor’s degree, numerous certifications, leadership programs, public speaking training, coaching school, and plenty of stage work.
Before starting my own venture and stepping onto the conference room circuit of the California bay area, I began my journey in Human Resources as a recruiter. I ascended the ranks in the usual way until I realized that traditional roles were not my calling. This shift led me to a successful management training business consultant, who became my mentor. Now based in Eugene, Oregon, I utilize my wealth of skills, education, and experience as a private coach.
Yes, I’m still quirky after all these years and it’s this unique combination of professionalism, authenticity, and a hint of eccentricity that makes my coaching approach relatable and effective.
If you’re dealing with people problems, I’m here to help.
