Perry Carrison is a coach who works with people determined to sort out their own mind and perspective. Only the dousing rod of clear values and distilled experiences can determine the best way forward. Carrison helps his clients find that clarity.
Native American philosophy is based on the Four Directions. West is the direction of new experiences. When Perry left the South and settled in California, new experiences came fast and furiously. His first job was working as a press agent for Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus in San Francisco. It was a good match. So good, the Circus brass promoted him to National Director of PR. After that, he continued his exploration of the West in Los Angeles where he promoted the work of social commentator, Marilyn Ferguson, an author who saw and described the forefront of societal and business development. Ferguson cronies Warren Bennis, Peter Senge and John Nasibett brought constant new horizons to Carrison’s thinking.
His current work as Coach began when he brought his Western experience back to the South and opened an Executive Retreat with his partner, Claire. There, the two melded experiential learning with management development, giving special focus to the motivational needs assessment tool, The Birkman Method. Today, living in Boston, Carrison continues his work of supporting others in the hard work of recognizing their true talents and calling.
