Charlotte Maure is a co-founder of HCN-USA. She has studied coaching since 1985, and has been applying the principles of coaching to management since then. She received her professional certification in 2003, and has often worked with executives and managers both in the US and abroad who are taking on a new role – a promotion, a new set of responsibilities within an organization.
She applies a combination of executive coaching and executive experience to help leaders and their teams exert focused, cohesive, results-oriented change in bureaucratic and politically charged environments. Ms. Maure has been involved in coaching, facilitation, strategic planning, change management, team development, and improving organizational performance for her entire career. Her coaching practice, centered on senior staff and C-level executives, focuses on the development of a leadership voice that encourages the contributions of others in the management of change. Recent coaching clients include a senior executive at a Los Angeles County Department, who was promoted during the assignment.

Previously, Charlotte coached a woman in a major regulatory organization, who received the President’s Silver Award of achievement shortly after she completed her program. She has coached
