We are a consulting firm that helps to increase leadership effectiveness and dramatically improve business results. We use a variety of methods, including executive coaching, leadership retreats, personal development, executive education and employee training. The focus is not on the methodology but on achieving results and business objectives.

The Vision of Marlene Chism Inc is

To provide transformational change in high stress work environments, to reduce drama; improve performance, and increase clarity, purpose and joy.


1. To improve communication and relationships everywhere.
2. To build enlightened leaders.
3. To help individuals discover, develop and deliver their gifts to the world.

ICARE Values

Originally ICARE was an acronym for “Improving Communication and Relationships Everywhere.” The vision and values of ICARE has expanded to the values that we are committed to:

  • Integrity
  • Communication
  • Alignment
  • Responsibility
  • Empowerment


If we can change the mindset of what work is supposed to be, we will have enlightened leaders and inspired workers. Once workers are inspired and living from purpose and passion, there is never a shortage of intellectual capital, never a shortage of ideas, and never a shortage of revenue. The purpose of Marlene Chism Inc. is to deliver this message of inspiration and practical tools for transformation. We believe…

  • People are engaged when they discover, develop and deliver their gifts to the world.
  • Clarity can change any situation.
  • By your choices you reveal your commitments.
  • Any area where there is a problem, there is a lack of awareness.
  • You can only be as honest as your level of self-awareness.
  • The first part of responsibility is the recognition of choice.
  • You can only see what you believe to be true or possible.
  • Willingness is the fulcrum point of change.
  • It’s never about the situation but it’s always about the pattern.
  • What is experienced is also expressed.
  • There is a place in business for both facts and feelings: The wisdom is in knowing the application.
  • You can be authentic without being aligned, but you cannot be aligned without being authentic.

Results You Can Expect

  • Profitability through clarity and alignment
  • Dramatically improved workplace relationships
  • Increased personal effectiveness and focus
  • Stronger communication dynamics
