Carlota Santa Cruz coaches individuals and organizations to discover balance and thrive.

During Silicon Valley’s  ‘Dot.Com Boom’, Carlota facilitated a broad array of workshops across the US including: the ‘Consultative Sale’, Wayne Dyer’s  the ‘Sky is the Limit’,  the ‘Seven Habits of Highly Effective People’ and the life changing opportunity to study with Steven Covey in Sundance.

With the ‘Bubble Bust’ and disruptive seasons of mergers and acquisitions, Carlota headed Human Resources and provided much needed Transition Management.  Understanding that you cannot lead from behind, she implemented significant action with management and employee development sessions, and incorporated the thinking of transformational leaders including: Peters,  Dyer and C.G. Jung.
During difficult times, she successfully introduced humor ino management with “Who Moved My Cheese”, Spencer Johnson and Kenneth Blanchard, and “Our Iceberg is Melting” by John Kotter.  Carlota promoted communication across age and cultural divides with ‘Crucial Conversations’ in  preparing individuals for challenging responsibilities. She introduced mind calming methods, even integrating meditation, for her organization to focus during life changing events.

The 49th Ajari, Genshin Fujinami,, Carlota Santa Cruz

While completing Dr. Masaru Emoto’s International HADO Instructor Certification, she encountered two great masters: the 49th Dai Ajari, Genshin Fujinami and Sotesu Mitsumura “Joshuku”. Carlota took part in their Buddhist Meditation and the ‘Kyuosaku’ ritual for clearing the mind. These experiences furthered her understanding of our personal ‘HADO’ or vibration as we each participate in universal peaceful evolution.

Carlota met Dr Lucia Capacchione PhD and immediately recognized the importance of her work. Dr Lucia Capacchione PhD pioneered expressive art methods,  giving a voice for emotions to develop creative potential in all areas of life.

Carlota embarked upon the Creative Journal Expressive Arts path to further introduce this method within her own community and beyond.  She remains an enthusiastic ‘Life Long Learner’.
