I've Charted So Many New Courses
Hey there — I'm Cali Harris.
My work has looked less like climbing a corporate ladder & more like playing on a jungle gym.
The call of curiosity, the drive to learn, the stumbles, and the pressures of a "do more faster" mentality led me to change course many times in my career.
Charting a new course in your life's work is exciting, terrifying, inevitable. When you feel most stuck is usually when a new course is calling.
If you orient to your core values, that journey becomes easier, clearer and full of purpose.
For most of my career, I wasn't crystal clear on my values. I was already living according to them, like an operating system running in the background—but I couldn't name or apply them in an intentional way. There was so much happening just below the surface of my approach to work, waiting to be uncovered.
When I got clear on my personal values framework—what I call my North Star—I felt more ease. Less uncertainty. More confidence. Less second-guessing & over-analyzing. More conviction in my life's work.
My core values have led me to make better, bolder decisions in my relationships, in my hobbies & passions, and in my career.
I want to help you find and follow your North Star.
I work with entrepreneurs, CxOs, investors, and senior leaders in organizations that serve startups. My 15+ years in entrepreneurship has afforded me a 360° view of the startup ecosystem.
My superpower is holding a mirror up to your genius...through evocative questions, frameworks that work, and the deeply-held belief that when you uncover your values, you live your purpose.
Lead with integrity
Connect the unexpected
Boogieing to '60s soul music, talking to someone (everyone) about their work, riding my Harley around Colorado, or lost in a bookstore.
Making aeropress coffee, scribbling in my bullet journal, checking email more often than I should, and belly-laughing.
North Star Rising supports leaders and their teams to create values-centered work through pragmatic (not dogmatic) leadership development.
I work independently and team up with values-minded collaborators to deliver content, programming, and experiences to you and your team.
Why North Star Rising? The North Star is a point of reference that has long helped travelers orient themselves in unfamiliar terrain. Values can serve as your North Star as you navigate your life's work. Are you ready to watch your North Star rise?
Values make a difference. They make change. They make right. Acting according to values can shape, change and improve our work.
I choose to create clarity in my mission, programs and services, even if doing so is at the expense of being comfortable.
There's no one-size-fits all approach here. I provoke, empower and equip you to chart your own course.
