Strategy, Execution & Accountability
At You Empowered Strong, we help you understand the power of being an authentic thought leader in today's ever-changing, complex global environment, and how to get a greater return on the investments you make within your organizations. We show you how to mitigate that risk, invest in yourself and your people to create high-performing teams for growth and long-term sustainable success.
We help you further define your ROI, as the function of time, energy, people, resources, lifestyle and the culture you are creating as to how they directly impact your bottom line. For we know that opportunity costs are many times associated with burnout, lack of employee engagement, broken cultures, and disconnected teams within an organization. Employee turnover creates waves in your business and dissatisfaction with clients.
Through our research, training and accountability frameworks, we help you implement, execute and integrate successful systems, processes, and leadership strategies and methodologies to help develop leaders and high-performing teams. It's starts with changing the perception around what it means to be a leader, and how to challenge and support people in that space. We help you build trust, buy-in, engagement and advocacy within your organization through courageous, connected conversations and deeper level of heart-centered, purposeful leadership to truly feed the soul of your business.

“Simply put, Candy is a Powerful Caring Catalyst in the lives lucky enough to work with her." - Sean A., Accruent
My experience with Candy Barone and the “You Empowered Strong” course has been extremely beneficial and eye-opening. I recently came back to work after taking 4 months off from maternity leave with my second child. As many working mothers understand, it was a tough time assimilating back into the workplace, trying to find my place at home and at my job. The course came at a time where it was most needed. Through Candy’s help, I found my purpose, my drive and motivation, and ultimately my “Why”. This all has made me a better coworker, employee, wife and mother. My focus is purposeful and deliberate and I’m happier at work and at home. My cup is overflowing and I couldn’t be more thankful.” - Janine W., GE Healthcare
