LEADERS

Are you ready to unlock your full potential?

“Thank you” seems so inadequate to truly express how grateful I am for all the support and assistance you have given me over the past year.  Please know how truly thankful I am for all you’ve done to equip me to better express myself, plan and prepare, and be a better employee and manager.  I truly hope to have the opportunity to collaborate together in the future.

Strategic Thinking & Planning

Leaders often react to what comes their way without charting their own course or driving to a vision of the future. Yet planning is essential for growth and sustained performance–but it is only the beginning. CSC consultants design the strategic discussions as well as work at the back-end to support the execution, measurement, monitoring and adjustment for high-level results.

Team & Organizational Effectiveness

What our clients are saying…


“I have had the pleasure of working with Patti over the last 5 years as President of my organization. The initial reason was to engage her as an executive coach, but I found that Patti’s skills, knowledge and experience lent itself to far more. Together we worked on chartering teams, strategic planning, company culture, decision making protocols and more. The results were significant. The systems created will not only support us today but will continue to underpin the growth of our organization and its emerging leaders.

Patti was also engaged with the majority of our senior team as their coach as well so we could align and develop skills collectively. Patti has the ability to listen deeply, ask clarifying and thought-provoking questions and then provide direction or insights that consistently moved the ball forward.

I would highly recommend Patti as a trusted advisor, coach, and strategic consultant for anyone interested in truly developing themselves and their business.” –Mike LaHorgue, formerly President, Carmel Partners


“Patti came to my attention close to 15 years ago, when I was a fledgling new business owner, somewhat overwhelmed with the trials and tribulations of being an interior design small business owner with a developing client base of corporate titans. Patti has been instrumental for my company in helping me navigate the highs and lows of working with captains of industry and growing my business all the while maintaining my goals professionally and philanthropically.” -Denise Kuriger, Owner of Denise Kuriger Design

“I cannot overstate how helpful Patti’s coaching has been to me. It has exceeded all expectations. She worked with me as I transitioned from one institution to another and continues to help me recognize my strengths, weaknesses, blind spots, and opportunities. She is always present and on her toes, helping me stay on mine. She offers critical insight and advice in times of crisis and otherwise. In short, she’s the greatest career asset I never knew I needed.” -Kat Carrico, Vice President for Health Sciences Advancement at Keck School of Medicine of USC

“As a result of her coaching, I have become clear about my vision, developed a plan for execution, and most importantly am living many components of my vision today. Patti has a unique gift. ” -Andy Ortiz, Chief HR Officer of Cedars Sinai Health System

“Patti Cain-Stanley and her coaching staff have been trusted partners for my personal leadership advancement and for the up-leveling of dozens of members of my team for the past 10 years. I continue to retain and refer Cain-Stanley and Co. again-and-again, not just because they lift leaders up by deeply understanding and designing programs just for them. I hire them because I’ve witnessed their proven track record first-hand. Patti swiftly and consistently accelerates the rise of talent and increases the impact they have on company performance. This happens far faster than if individuals advanced their own leadership organically. The Cain-Stanley coaching style is authentic and nurturing, yet straight-talking, which builds individuals’ confidence and actionable results because they’ve done the right work to grow themselves with guidance. My team sees it as a tremendous perk and special designation of high-performance, but most of all, they have enjoyed the experience.” -Samantha Paxson, Executive VP/Chief Experience Office of CO-OP Financial Services
