Beth Chesterton

“What sets Beth apart… she creates success stories.” — Julie Knisley

Beth is a consultant with extensive experience working at the highest levels within some of the greatest companies in the world. She works with the best and the brightest — leaders, entrepreneurs and entire organizations — to make them even better.

She has twenty-five years of experience assisting thousands of individuals to reach their potential, and numerous Fortune 500 companies to develop profitable relationships. She has a strong reputation for helping clients see what’s possible, developing a plan to get there and then making it happen.

Beth traveled the world with Citibank, working with high potential individuals to accelerate their ability to reach senior levels within the organization. In addition to design and delivery, she prepared senior managers and expert facilitators to co-lead programs in Asia, Europe and the United States.

Beth also consulted exclusively with MasterCard International for years. She focused on what Jeff Struve, the then Senior Vice President of HR, described as “shifting the culture from a training mentality to one focused on individual and team development and effectiveness.”

“Beth’s courage, flexibility, drive and energy ensured a successful launch of a new way of learning at MasterCard.” — Jeff Struve, former Senior Vice President of Human Resources, MasterCard International

After working with leadership to establish strategies and align management, she brought the vision to life by assembling a team of talented facilitators and coaches — including Dr. Kathryn Cramer, the originator of the concept known as Asset-Based Thinking (ABT), a philosophy which focusses on and highlights the strengths of a situation (the assets) rather than the weaknesses, in order to unlock possibilities.

Beth continued to work with Dr. Cramer to refine ABT principles and tools. She consulted with and was embedded in a wide variety of exceptional companies and schools to help transform culture, shift mind-sets and enhance performance. Hitting one home run after another, they were invited back year after year to continue their work and to create measurable change in client organizations.

Later, Beth became the designated ABT Master Trainer certifying executive coaches to utilize ABT tools, principles and practices with their clients. This led to a new relationship with Dr. Kathryn Cramer as they launched an ABT global movement — a positive conspiracy comprised of like-minded practitioners dedicated to helping people change the way they see everything.

Beth sees the similarities between shifting corporate cultures and launching brands and movements. Both require you to package a message and get it into the hands, hearts and minds of thousands and in some cases tens of thousands of people.

She worked on such a project when she designed the influencer program for the #womennotobjects campaign. Thanks to the women of Pi Beta Phi, the influencer program launched successfully on the Vanderbilt campus in 2016.

Today, Beth works within leading corporations helping them to inspire and improve performance through speaking and train-the-trainer.

She also consults with successful women (and men) to help them expand their influence. Her clients include Emmy award winners; Shark Tank winners; globally recognized social entrepreneurs; C-Suite executives; former White House staffers from both sides of the aisle; and, on a rare occasion, a Princess with a PhD in molecular biology — to name a few. Many of these clients participate in Beth’s Vision Realization Coaching Program where Beth helps them take their vision from inspiration to reality.

People love Beth’s programs. She brings a down-to-earth style to facilitation that participants find refreshing. Beth offers a 21-Day Challenge designed to inspire women to lead their lives with greater joy, passion and productivity — offered exclusively at RISE Collaborative. She is also offering an Inspiration and Impact Mastermind that will begin this fall. Each meeting will include a gourmet dinner and will be held in an elegant setting.

To give back, Beth curates local and international communities of dynamic and powerful women to participate in salon-style conversations. These communities come together to share stories, explore issues and to build meaningful relationships that make a positive impact on the community and the world around them.

Be on the lookout for her new column, The Honest Truth, in Town & Style Magazine called THE HONEST TRUTH. The column is a collaboration with friend and colleague Jill Farmer.

Beth happily runs her business out of RISE Collaborative a women-centered and male friendly workspace and community of professionals who are dedicated to creative collaborations for making measurable impact.

Beth has too many certifications to count. She earned her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Human and Organizational Development from Vanderbilt University.
