What is the C.A.R.E.S. To Succeed Framework?

Throughout my life, I’ve observed, learned from, and been an executive leader. I created the CARES To Succeed framework because I’ve found that leaders who live these values and care about their teams, cultivate deeper connections and gain loyalty, which powerfully motivates teams and contributes to better business outcomes.

Traits of a C.A.R.E.S. Leader

C – Communicates Clearly
A – Authentic in character
R – Receptive & Reflective to feedback
E – Engaged learner
S – Sincere in actions and interactions

Why C.A.R.E.S. Matters

  • Upnext’s C.A.R.E.S. To Succeed framework helps next generation leaders and new executives master the skills most needed to succeed in the workplace today and in the future.
  • The future workplace is one where leaders care and employees want a shared sense of purpose and belonging, improved relationships with bosses and colleagues, and improved connections with the culture, values, and beliefs.
  • Studies show that organizations who provide new leaders and their teams with proper coaching and focus on a connected culture, develop a more effective and engaged workplace, resulting in achieving objectives.
  • Leadership is about relationships. Leaders who don’t know their co-workers or employees well will fail.
  • 60% of new managers fail within the first 24 months because they’ve never been trained and they don’t know how to lead.
  • Companies that have higher levels of engagement experience 17% higher productivity and 20% higher earnings.

What I Do

I help develop connected, emotionally smart, thriving and successful workplace leaders through short term power booster sessions or longer-term engagements of a 3-to-12-month period using my four-step process, so they can overcome career challenges, meet their goals and soar to future success.

Team training and strategic leadership workshops are available for organizations who value the process of getting results. They recognize that how you get results is as important as actually getting them, and seek to create authentic connections and caring relationships that support a highly positive team and organizational culture.
