C. Leslie Charles, Certified Speaking Professional, motivational speaker, business consultant, and facilitator, has helped people connect with their potential since 1979. The wit, wisdom, and warmhearted delivery she puts into her speeches make her a credible source for her message.
Leslie's customized keynotes, training seminars and workshops entertain, enlighten, and inspire her audience members to make small changes that can enrich their lives in a big way.
As the author of seven books, Leslie's critically acclaimed Why Is Everyone So Cranky? thrust her into the media spotlight for nearly three years, making her a recognized expert on anger management and stress. She's appeared on all of the major TV networks, numerous magazines, hundreds of radio shows, and quoted in nearly that many newspapers, including a USA Today cover story.
Leslie speaks and writes from the position of one who knows what it takes to live and work with enthusiasm, integrity, and resiliency because she's done it, adding practicality to her message. Her books and presentations are filled with inspirational quips, doable ideas, and attitude shifts guaranteed to make a big difference in how people live, love, and pursue their livelihoods.
Her latest book, the humorous, "Bless Your Stress: It Means You're Still Alive," coauthored with Mimi Donaldson, is a highly unusual, laugh-out-loud approach to an often daunting, overworked subject. Imagine a common sense treatment of stress delivered in a highly uncommon manner.
