CrisMarie Campbell

Executive Coach & Leadership Consultant

Seattle, WA


CrisMarie Campbell has been coaching leaders and consulting with organizations for over 20 years. What she learned about leadership, teamwork and conflict came from her training as an Olympics rower. What CrisMarie loves best is helping people be the best they can be to get the results they want. She believes that leading authentically and congruently produces the most effective outcomes. She applies what she helps others do to her own business and life.
CrisMarie’s coaching focuses on three main areas:

  • Coaching executives and leaders to be more effective by developing both backbone and heart. She coaches to align the leader, the team and the organization to the leader’s vision, making the most significant impact.
  • Consulting using a model of Path to Great Results through Teams – two-day off-sites with leaders and their direct reports to develop trust, clear up differences through crucial conversations, and develop an effective strategic and tactical plan for moving forward as a team versus a series of siloed organizations.
  • Developing and delivering Smart and Healthy Leadership Development programs that help leaders have the most impact on the effectiveness of the organization by being congruent and authentic.


Prior to becoming an Executive Coach, CrisMarie worked for Point B, and for Arthur Anderson, where, as a manager, she led their Change Management Practice, coaching leaders through large-scale change. She began her career at Boeing, including a stint as a 777 Flight Test Engineer. From 2004 through 2012, CrisMarie worked closely with Patrick Lencioni, the author of Five Dysfunctions of a Team and The Advantage.
In the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, Korea, she competed as a USA rower. She won a silver medal in rowing at the 1987 World Championships.


I hired CrisMarie when I stepped into the CEO role of a multi-million dollar business. CrisMarie helped me turn around my dysfunctional team into a high performing one! She gave me tools to get clear on our strategy, lead my team cohesively and give productive feedback. I’m successfully leading an entire organization with increasing revenues each year.

CrisMarie helped me skillfully address our team dynamics and have difficult conversations in respectful ways. She helped me leverage the collective smarts on my team to get strategic and tactical results. She gave us practical tools to reduce stress and have productive meetings. I highly recommend her to any leader whose team is taking on a big vision or goal.
