Work Life Balance
with Carrie Kish
Carrie started out as a chemist and worked in research as a chemist for a few years and then went into teaching, and then I found that she is very entrepreneurial and started multiple businesses. She and her husband just recently started their eighth business, which have been in many different and diverse fields from software consulting to a health spa to leadership development, and although they don’t seem like they go together, and it’s an interesting path that we follow.
She became CEO of CultureSync in a kind of an unusual way. Essentially she sold her lab coaching and leadership development business into CultureSync in exchange for partnership, so she is a partner and the CEO of CultureSync.
CultureSync helps people navigate culture and leadership in organizations, from anything from a startup up to Fortune 100.

Quotes from Carrie Kish for Women’s Leadership Success Interview
“For a quick tip … allowing people to help you is probably a leadership secret that people aren’t good at. Especially of the women, I think we are so good at giving help and offering help and we’re pretty terrible at receiving, and if you can let people help you, that is sometimes more inspiring of followership and support than helping others, allowing people and empowering them and surrendering to allow them to help you.”
“I think I just followed the steps that were in front of me, like follow the resonance, follow the fulfillment and follow the opportunity.”
“It’s kind of like following the path that lights up, following what makes your heart sing, following what feels right, and I think I’m very intuitive so I feel more than I think…
“So you can just palpably feel the difference when you walk into an organization that is led by values. You have a different customer experience or a different experience interacting with them, and they’re doing better in the marketplace. They have a much higher customer loyalty and much more success.”
“Something that I did was I was radically committed to my healing and I’m also better than my physical therapist’s idea at this point because of how committed I was to my health and healing.”
