"I came into the world destined to soar above the clouds."
So...who am I?
Hi! I'm Glodean Champion, founding principal of Champion Consulting a boutique firm specializing in transforming business people, processes, and practices! I have over 20-years of experience in group facilitation, continuous improvement, cultural transformation, and recently, I've added motivating and inspiring people from all walks of life to my repertoire. I'm a Six Sigma Black Belt and I love helping organizations build repeatable, measurable, and sustainable processes.
When I'm not working to transform the business world, I am also an educator. I love teaching and influencing young minds and there's no greater joy when the light bulb of understanding shines bright in their eyes. I'm an artist and photographer who enjoys capturing the landscapes and community scenery in foreign lands. I'm also a published short-story writer and essayist who is currently working to publish my first novel, Salmon Croquettes - a coming of age story, set in 1965, about a young Black girl struggling with her sexuality in a racially charged Watts, Los Angeles. It's also historical fiction about the Watts riots.
I live on Del Monte Beach in Monterey, CA and can be found most mornings walking my adorable Tibetan Terrier, Tashi, along the shoreline, giving gratitude for the beauty of my expansive backyard and my amazing life!
"I am not what I do. I am so much more. It is the who of me that influences my ability to be exceptional at what I do and why I love doing it!"
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
CAREER EDUCATION / OUTREACH SPECIALIST
I was amazed by Glodean's level of professionalism and knowledge. Her ability to facilitate with multiple people and personalities was impressive. Her witty sense of humor and outgoing personality really made the day enjoyable !
If I had to pick one of Glodean's best traits, one...more important than her unrelenting positive attitude or uncanny ability to meet unrealistic deadlines, it would be her clarity. She can express a concept in as many ways as the listener needs to hear in order to understand.
ASSOCIATE PM (AND MENTEE)
Glodean was able to see great abilities within me, more than I could see in myself, and helped bring it out of me. She has taught me that if I believe in something, do it. And if it doesn’t work out, it’s always better to ask for forgiveness.
