Client Testimonials


You were by far the BEST presenter at the conference. I sat through so many sessions, and felt drained. But after I left yours I felt so ENERGIZED and I am now using what you gave me on a regular basis.

- Maria Baker, Human Resources, Southern Ute Growth Fund 


I love Carla’s energy and outlook. I found her keynote very meaningful for me. I now see important ways to improve resilience in our organization. This was just what I needed to hear.

- Tamara Laurin, Human Resources, APTN


I loved the way you were able to integrate key learnings in a fun way. I laughed, I learned and I was mesmerized. Within relatively a short period of time, I have already seen the positive results within our department.

Leadership in the Age of Technology

The Top 3 Habits of Leaders Who Inspire Higher Performance on their Teams (despite all the challenges of technology)

Best Audience: Association Conferences, Leadership Events, Staff Training, Sales Rallies

How does technology affect performance? Engaging, keynote speaker, Carla Rieger, looks at leadership thinking habits that help people perform better as we move faster into the age of AI, machine learning, automation, digital interfacing and gamification.

Technological challenges are mounting as our digital lives become more complex. The human tendency is to get reactive and waste time focusing on the problem instead of working on the solution.

The #1 way to help people perform better is to create structures and habits at work that help people unlearn and relearn again and again. As the world changes at faster rates, people desperately need practical tools to shift their mindset (and inspire others to do the same) to be appropriate to the situation.

After 11 years of research we have identified the top 3 mindset habits of people who tend to stay innovative, solutions-oriented, adaptive, centered, healthy, communicative and proactive in the face of constant change.

We call these people “Change Artists”. The skills of a Change Artist don’t actually need to be learned. They are innate skills that you just need to remember to access. These practices require hardly any extra time during your day, and simply train your brain to stay in as high a performance state as possible, no matter what is going on around you.

During this engaging and practical program your group will discover how to:

  • understand different personality styles when it comes to handling tech challenges
  • shift a reactive mindset to a problem solving mindset.
  • turn complaints, resistance and setbacks into tools for positive change
  • create the structures that inspire a culture of innovation

The Artistry of Change® is a powerful framework that blends diverse fields such as educational kinesiology, western and eastern psychology, change management theory, creative process models, and neuroscience. Witness how these fields are merging in exciting ways to produce the new ‘organizational artistry’.


"Carla spoke at four of our events to over 900 people. She's a consummate professional! Very well researched and prepared, she provided engaging, practical and thought-provoking content that stuck with people. The overall feedback was EXCELLENT." 

Lynn Kirkland  Human Resources, Capital Health Region


The Art of negotiation

How to Install the Top 3 Habits of Excellent Communicators

Best Audience: Association Conferences, Leadership Events, Staff Training

Format: Workshop, Breakout Session or Group Coaching

Conflict is an element like fire: too much causes damages; too little and no transformation can occur.

Costly communication breakdowns often happen between people because of simple-to-solve issues. If not dealt with you can lose productivity, income, well being, customers and employee engagement.

Diversity of opinions between people can lead to decisions that are wiser and more sustainable. This program covers the top habits of those who turn differences into solutions. During this engaging and interactive presentation you will discover how to:

  • practice 3 habits that prevent communication breakdowns
  • communicate your needs without causing defensiveness
  • switch from an unhealthy tension to a healthy discussion
  • have touchy conversations that lead to positive outcomes
  • win back trust and create goodwill where it was lost

Experience the joy of making open communication a part of your daily work life.
