If you’re an athlete or musician then you know what it feels like to be in the Zone. The Zone is that state of peak performance where your mind is clear and also in the present moment. You are focused and relaxed, highly confident and effective and also humble and free from over-attachment to outcomes.
Athletes and teams in the Zone achieve their greatest accomplishments, they break records and win championships. Musicians and artists create breakthrough art and masterpieces.
Being in the Zone feels almost magical but it doesn’t take magic to get in the Zone.
It takes mastering the right mindset, being positive and developing focus and self discipline through mindfulness.
It takes developing the right communication skillset to be an effective salesperson or advocate, and to collaborate and resolve conflicts.
And it takes developing the right culture on your team or in your organization that creates a balanced, thriving environment.
Charlie Rebich also works with individual leaders to:
Achieve a greater vision for themselves and their organization
Improve communication with colleagues and employees.
Find strength in authenticity and vulnerability.
Find a new level of fearlessness.
Discover and develop resources within yourself that you didn’t realize you had.
Getting in the Zone is a constant journey of growth and improvement, authenticity, vulnerability and empowerment.

I was already a confident and experienced leader, but Charlie helped me sharpen my communication skills to help improve a couple of difficult relationships with staff and is working with me to create and map out a strategy to push forward a unified vision for the culture we want to have and to implement it. He is extremely insightful, compassionate and intelligent and is a complete delight to work with.

Do you want to get your team or organization in the Zone? Charlie Rebich and Zone Consulting offers one day workshops and multi-week training programs on:
Culture Training - Culture is the “values, visions, behaviors and agreements of a team or organization." The most successful teams have a great culture that balances personal responsibility and competition with empathy, compassion and collaboration. They hold a high value on winning, achieving results and impact while also maintaining balance with health, happiness and wellness. They hold an agreement to be the best they can be and have a triple bottom line mentality of people, planet and profits.
Teams with a great culture create breakthrough new ideas, products and services. They make the world a better place.
Zone Consulting creates trainings and workshops on culture and engaging and enrolling employees to develop great culture.
Mindfulness Training - Mindfulness is a tool that improves mental focus, clarity and productivity and also reduces stress and improves health. With as little as 10 minutes of practice per day you can dramatically improve your ability to stay focused, creative and productive. Studies have demonstrated that mindfulness calms the sympathetic nervous system and the amygdala of the brain (the fight / flight / freeze area of the brain) and it activates the parasympathetic nervous system and creative centers of the brain.
Zone Consulting offers simple mindfulness training and tools to maintain a mindfulness practice.
Communication Training - Great communication is the key to any successful organization. Zone consulting offers workshops and training for:
Collaborative brainstorming; creating the skills and environment where silos break down and the best ideas rise to the top.
Sales and advocacy; Improving sales or how employees talk about the mission and values of your organization.
Conflict resolution; Understanding the nature of conflict (and why its a positive thing), active listening skills, emotional intelligence, getting to underlying needs and values, creating win win solutions.
Giving and receiving constructive and affirming feedback and eliminating gossip.
We will work with you and your team to develop the right program for your organization. He will meet with you to discuss your goals, what is going well, what needs improving and how to tailor a program to your culture and the needs of your team members.
Charlie has been a game changer for our organization. Everyone on our staff enjoys his workshops. His people-centric approach is respectful and engaging. In our case, each participant learned new skills to resolve conflict and to give and receive feedback. Because of Charlie, our morale and internal communications have never been better.
- Colin Schmidt, Executive Director, America Scores Bay Area
Charlie also began his career as a communication teacher by becoming California state certified as a mediator in 1993. He studied with and the PCRC and later San Francisco Community Boards, the oldest public conflict resolution center in the U.S. He did years of volunteer community mediations and still does today.
While teaching mindfulness and volunteering as a mediator, Charlie took a career in sales and marketing. He worked for companies selling everything from industrial equipment to computer software and technology. He became the top-ranked salesman of a residential solar company and was also a successful entrepreneur, launching, building and later selling a health food company. Combining the “hard” skills sales and “soft” skills of mediation Charlie became a masterful communicator, both for selling and for building relationships.
Charlie launched Zone Consulting in 2016 after also studying organizational and leadership development with organizations and teachers like HolocracyOne, CTI, Tribal Leadership, Peter Senge, LeadingLeaders and Patrick Lencioni. Charlie has helped dozens of leaders and organizations with his work and he loves helping them achieve their goals and creating healthier, happier and more creative cultures.
This combination of passion, experience and expertise is the foundation of Zone Consulting.
