A Personalized Business Style
Lee Ann Del Carpio, whose busy pace was once compared to a Chinese acrobat who juggles several spinning plates on sticks in each hand, is a leadership consultant who helps others achieve success in business and in life. With her company Inner Power International, she empowers individuals, entrepreneurs and organizations to utilize their passion and talent to go to the next level of triumph.
To do that, she asks her clients lots of questions about future goals.
“Where are they now?” she inquires. “Where do they want to go?
What is the current market position? What works? What doesn’t work? What gets in your way? Executive coaching is a process of change and transformation, and it is also a relationship.”
One of her first exercises with her customers clarifies the mission and the company’s core values.
“It is important to get clear on that now,” says Del Carpio, “and get a handle on how we navigate through change, and build leaders in the direction of where we want to go. We will be forward thinking in answering the question, ‘How will I find and sustain my edge in a constantly changing world?’”
For a progressive business, she says, you need systems, and she emphasizes that a good product or service is just one part of the big picture.
“Lots of people don’t have the whole business model,” she says. “You have to have the right attitude, skills set and business structure.”
One of Del Carpio’s clients, Liz Kelly, an author and public-relations professional, shares one of the tips she’s learned about having a team.
“If you have a system, you can train someone else to do your stuff,” Kelly says. “This way, if you go on vacation, your income continues.”
Del Carpio, a Chicago native, moved from New York to Hawaii in 2001 to begin a life where she could balance having a great career and raising a family. Her experience in intercultural management includes conducting corporate global leadership training for many industries, including Avon.
The Hawaii Kai resident appreciates the support of all her mentors, clients, friends, family and especially husband Javier and their two daughters, 4-year-old Angelena and 2-year-old Kaia.
“I want to be a good role model of a mom and demonstrate through how I live my life that girls and women can do anything,” Del Carpio emphasizes.
To empower other women, in partnership with the Richards Street YWCA she started a Cashflow Club for women that meets from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesdays starting Oct. 21. It will provide women with a nurturing environment to talk about how they can take control of their financial future. During the program they’ll play a Cashflow game created by Kim and Robert Kiyosaki to help them learn - Kim wrote Rich Woman - A Book On Investing For Women, and Robert is the author Rich Dad Poor Dad.
“My work is in both personal development and business,” says Del Carpio. “One without the other, I find, is not as powerful. When you put the two together in a systematic fashion, that’s when you get to feel the difference between those who are linked into a strategy that helps them achieve business results and brings them energy personally. That is an intangible competitive advantage.”
