ABN Spotlights Executive Coach and ABN Trainer Chuck Carringer, Ph.D.

Executive Coach and ABN Trainer Chuck Carringer, Ph.D. is wired to help people succeed.

“I’ve long had a passion for leadership. When a leader improves, everyone benefits, and leaders set the tone for their company or organization,” says Chuck.

While Chuck has been using what he calls the “coaching gene” for the past 30 years, he has not always worked developing professionals. As a former teacher, basketball coach, and principal, he loves helping others achieve their goals. Chuck earned a doctorate in executive leadership, focusing on leadership styles and executive styles, and has since put his education and experience to work helping professionals develop their leadership skills.

“I really like most parts of my job,” he said. “Ultimately, what I find really fulfilling is partnering with someone and together setting objectives for their goals. I love the feeling and excitement of seeing a client succeed.”

They make our communities better at the local, state, and national levels,” he says. Chuck helps provide opportunities for development for nonprofit leaders in order to have the most effective and well-led nonprofits.

“My experience has been so positive. The nonprofit leaders in Knoxville are genuine and driven, and they are eager for support,” he says.

Chuck has no questions that coaching and helping others achieve their leadership goals is his calling. “I’m wired to coach and to help people win.”

Chuck's next training with ABN is May 19 from 9-12pm on "How to Develop Authentic Leadership." For more information about training and membership with ABN, visit their website at betternonprofits.org.
