I AM HELLBENT ON FINDING OUT.
My name is Kristoffer Carter. My friends call me KC.
I help entrepreneurs and rapid-growth start-ups create their deepest possible impact.
KC is a living, breathing beam of light.
– Susan Piver, NY Times Best-Selling Author of “Start Here Now: An Open-Hearted Guide to the Path and Practice of Meditation.”
KC has a unique ability to get others to believe they can do things they are struggling with. He inspires every one of our new hires, as well as me, to be a better, well-rounded person.
– Shawn Riegsecker, Founder and CEO, Centro
KC’s ideas are equally effective for individuals as they are in the living laboratory of one of the fastest growing tech-companies in the U.S.
– Jonathan Fields, Author, Founder of Good Life Project™
How do I do this?
I give myself, and everyone around me permission to Glow In The Dark. And I build tools to help you do that for others.
In my youth, I burned my candles at all ends. Kind of a “wax menorah” approach to life. Who knew that was so crazy-unsustainable?!?
This put me on a 12 year path toward what I call Full-Life Integration™.
These days I burn a single candle every morning — representing my integration as a yogi householder & impact catalyst.
Pared down. Sharp Eyed. Awake.
To help spare people from my own dicey travels, I designed and released a Full-Life Integration “owner’s manual” called The Framework Manifesto. It includes a short workbook that accelerates the integration process. It’s free. You should grab it.
I launched a mindfulness & meditation program called THE PAUSE for our company Centro, a rapid-growth digital media firm headquartered in Chicago with 34 offices across North America. I led Sales Education & Development for one of the best and brightest sales organizations in the digital media industry.
Centro has won some humbling awards for our company culture, all while growing from 44 to over 700 employees since I started in 2007.
- #1 Best Place to Work in Chicago by Crains Business, four consecutive years (2011 – 2014).
- #1 Best Place to Work in advertising & marketing (2015) – Fortune Magazine
- #1 Best Place to Work – Advertising Age (AdAge.com)
I am an outspoken advocate of meditation in business, a kriyaban yogi (Self-Realization Fellowship founded by Paramahansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi), a husband and father of 3, a marathoner, and multi-instrumentalist since childhood.
I’m obsessed with helping individuals and organizations create integration between the virtues that guide them, and the business objectives that drive them.
My consulting work with entrepreneurs and organizations culminated in launching the Your Signature Impact program. It’s by application only, and utilizes everything I’ve learned as a curriculum designer for high-impact adult learners. It’s offered in a 5-week accelerator format and gives us the opportunity to work together closely on your business. While the program is on hiatus, I offer 1:1 Mentorship + Coaching on a limited basis. Learn more here.
I’ve recently been asked to do a flurry of interviews on the topic of Full-Life Integration™.
Here are a few of my favorite conversations:
- Business Insider – Interview alongside Centro’s Founder & Chief.
- The Jess Lively Show podcast
- The One You Feed podcast
- Interviewing my friend and mentor Jonathan Fields on Good Life Project – TV
Through the nurturing of our seemingly disparate talents and skills, we’re able to experience Full-Life Integration… When, (much like the 80s cartoon Voltron), the whole of us beats alien ass on a whole other level. –The Manifesto
