"Carlette Patterson is truly a 'life coach' who will change your life in all the right ways. She absolutely understands how to help people of all ages and backgrounds build character and successful behavior. She has had a tremendous impact on our ASU Women's Basketball program through both one-on-one life coaching and facilitating positive healthy relationships in team sessions. She is masterful at helping us uncover our strengths but even more importantly, she gives us the 'tools' to improve our weaknesses and to handle adverse situations. She has been an integral part of our team's growth into a Top 10 Program."

The winningest coach in ASU women's basketball history and No. 2 in the Pac-12 in most career wins (504), Charli Turner Thorne is at the helm of an Arizona State program that has qualified for postseason all but one year since 2001, including a school record six consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances (2014-19), two Elite Eight appearances and three Sweet 16 finishes. ASU's 14 NCAA Tournament appearances under Turner Thorne are 11 more than what ASU had in the 15 years prior to her arrival in Tempe. Has also earned a pair of gold medals with USA Basketball.

Head Coach

Auburn University

Women's Golf

"Team Building is important to cohesion and sets the foundation for an entire season. The activity choice must be right for each team in order to achieve the desired outcome. Carlette's culture creation retreat was the most powerful Team Building activity I have ever been involved in my 14 years as a head coach. The activities were introspective and enabled our team members to share with other at a very deep level. We learned more about each other in 4 hours than we may have in 4 years."

During her career at Arizona State University, Melissa was named SkyCaddie NGCA Coach of the Year. She has been named Pacific-10 Coach of the Year three times while at ASU (2006, 2007, 2009). Luellen has been awarded West Regional Coach of the Year four times in her career (2005, 2006, 2007, 2009), and was also named Central Regional Coach of the Year while at Tulsa in 2002. During her very successful tenure at Arizona State, Luellen led the program to an NCAA team title, 10 NCAA Top 10 finishes, two conference championships and 25 team titles. She also coached one NCAA Individual Champion, three Pac-12 Golfers of the Year, three NGCA Freshmen of the Year, 14 All-Americans and 21 individual tournament medalists.

Susan M. Suver

Former Executive: Aptiv PLC

"In spring 2017, I began working with Carlette as I was beginning to prepare for my retirement. I'm a very 'outcomes-based' business executive, and I wanted a coach who could take me through an efficient process that would facilitate a number of important decisions:

"1) I traveled internationally 80% of the time, and worked 80 hours a week, leaving me little time to focus on what I wanted to do when I retired. Carlette and I spoke weekly for an hour, and the discipline of this weekly schedule allowed me to create time/space to thoughtfully explore my next steps. I typically had a bit of 'homework' after each meeting, and it let me approach my transition plan thoughtfully and over a period of time to ensure it was the right fit for me.

"2) I had an obligation to advise my CEO/Board to allow for orderly succession planning in advance of my retirement. Carlette was instrumental in helping me to develop crisp messages to the CEO and Board. I was retiring much earlier than my peers in the company, so articulating the rationale and timing to the CEO was critical.

"3) My upcoming retirement was announced 6 months before my retirement took effect. Once the news was public, I began getting approached by external search firms, consulting firms and professional organizations who were interested in my capabilities for external Boards, consulting projects and non-profit work. I wanted to retire and take a 6-12 month break before I started making any future commitments. Carlette was key in helping me differentiate between what I 'wanted' to do vs. what I 'should' do, and to set expectations with outside parties about my timing and readiness for future opportunities.

"4) My husband is an entrepreneur and is not ready to retire yet so it was important for me to create a plan that gave me structure and flexibility to accommodate both of our interests.

"Carlette uses a very focused process to help you explore your interests, motivations and options, and to set reasonable expectations for yourself about each season of retirement; She quickly earned my trust, and her process and experience have been invaluable. I retired 5 months ago, and the expectations I set for myself are playing out as we discussed them. I continue to move through various seasons of my retirement, and know that I could not have been truly prepared without Carlette's expert coaching."

"I went to Carlette for corporate coaching on the recommendation of a fellow school board member who is one of the most respected businessmen in the Phoenix area. He steered me right. I started working with Carlette to develop a plan to transition from the head of a practice group at a major international law firm toward retirement several years down the road. Carlette has not only helped me develop and begin to implement such a plan, she has made me a more effective leader and more effective at the legal work I do on a day to day basis. I never thought I would benefit from working with a corporate coach. Now I only wish I had found Carlette sooner."

"I never understood the concepts of being fully engaged both on and off the field in the business world. Carlette's methodology provided me with tools necessary to understand the importance of being physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually balanced. Once you understand these concepts, be ready to convert your energy into a richer, more complete life experience."
