I was missing emails, important information, deadlines - material critical to the way in which I did my job and managed my team.MY STORY
Carson Tate is down-to-Earth and authentic; she’s good at what she does, and she’s fun to work with. Her solutions – powerful, practical, and possible.
Before I started working with Carson, I felt a lot of anxiety – I was missing emails, important information, deadlines – material critical to the way in which I did my job and managed my team.
Together, we carved out baby steps that were part of a larger solution, or transformation, in my productivity. Baby steps like utilizing an email’s subject line properly and creating an email filing system that made sense for not only me, but also my assistant. Carson even spent time with my assistant teaching her how to use the new system in order to support me and my role.
Since working with Carson, the greatest effect I’ve felt personally is less stress, less anxiety. The calm that comes from knowing the important information is there and organized – and my assistant and I both know how to access it – is priceless. An equally important result has been my ability to reclaim control over my time and my productivity.
Carson is good at pushing you outside your comfort zone – but never farther than you can go or want to handle. When you allow her to create a solution for you, what becomes even more possible is a new peace and calm that will transform your life.
In our business, we work fast and are juggling many priorities – and we needed someone who understood that.MY STORY
While planning the global webcast for Wells Fargo Wholesale Women’s Network, we were searching for a presenter who would engage a webcast audience pulling from all over the world, deliver a message that resonated immediately, and provide us with tangible and real information as well as clear, action steps. In our business, we work fast and are juggling many priorities – and we needed someone who understood that. Carson Tate was our perfect fit. Her presentation was engaging; her stories were relevant; her energy was infectious. Because she understood the corporate culture and lifestyle, she designed her content so that it struck a chord with a lot of different people in the Wells Fargo organization – from junior analysts to senior executives. (That’s hard to do.) She provided not only good, strategic productivity tips to help manage our respective lives, but also the action steps to take on our own productivity to create new value at work.

From there, she asks the right questions to get to an outcome-based solution quickly. As a result, our teams are using their productivity tools with a stronger impact.MY STORY
I met Carson about six or seven years ago. I was impressed with her immediately – she grabs your attention; she brings topics to life. I not only enjoyed her spark and ability to connect, but also her broad range of productivity strategies that I knew she could bring to the Belk community.
Having working with her in two different contexts at Belk – The Leadership Program for High Potential Employees and Human Resources’ Development Days programming – I’ve experienced her strong, consistent approach that’s anchored in her natural ability to listen to our struggles – and also hear what we’re not saying.
From there, she asks the right questions to get to an outcome-based solution quickly. As a result, our teams are using their productivity tools with a stronger impact. Personally, I am using Microsoft Outlook more efficiently and utilizing Carson’s strategies to be more disciplined in my productivity routine, turn off email notifications, and write new rules that allows me to focus more on my impact.
Carson understands the context of our environment, our culture, and our people. So much so, that she stays in touch with me and continually offers to us fresh ways to stay efficient.
With Carson, I have a deep, valuable knowledge set, but, more importantly, a partner in my success.
