CHRISTINE MILES, MS Ed
Founder & CEO
ONE WORD WHY – UNDERSTANDING
Understanding and using emotional intelligence to facilitate positive change and drive results is the force behind Christine’s story. She believes the ability to influence and communicate to inspire others is the key to success. She learned early in life from her mother’s adversity that everyone has a story. From that, a passion to understand people was born, while her father, an entrepreneur, instilled the love of business in her.
Christine received her Master’s in Psychological Services from University of Pennsylvania, and early in her career, Christine was a system’s therapist for families and children and realized how helping families become more emotionally intelligent could be applied to business. At 26, she shifted into the corporate Employee Assistance field, then parlayed all these experiences into owning her own executive coaching consulting business to Fortune 500 companies helping companies grow sales and revenue, develop people and create transformative cultures. To help businesses understand and use the power of story as a cutting-edge communication tool, she authored “The Art of The Nudge; Unlocking Your Hidden Potential.”
Through her professional and personal experiences, she learned that most people were not taught the emotional skills as she was, and simply needed tools to learn HOW to develop their EQ that sets them apart. In late 2018, she decided it was time to parlay all of her experiences together and formed EQuipt.
Weekly, Christine hosts a business radio show where executive leaders share their personal story of who they were growing up and how that impacts their passion and success today. Executive Leaders Radio is the #1 business radio show in the Mid-Atlantic states and broadcasts nationally on 91 stations.
