DR. CHRISTI MONK is an International Speaker, Best-Selling Author, Bullying Expert, and Organizational Leadership and Development Consultant. After quitting her job almost four years ago because she was unfulfilled and tired of taking jobs that did not align with her core values, she developed the S.T.A.Y. model. ™ – which teaches you how to stand in your power unapologetically, take control of your thoughts and actions, assess whose help you need so that you can yield to the authenticity of you. Christi has shared the stage with the likes of Star Jones, Kim Coles and George Fraser. She presented her published work, entitled Workplace Bullying – In Search of Clearer at the No More Harm conference in Australia, and has appeared on several podcasts.

Project Manager

I’m so grateful for being introduced to Dr. Monk. I attended three of her workshops through National Black MBA Charlotte Chapter. I instantly felt a connection with Dr. Monk and immediately signed up for her “Elevate Her 6-Week Jumpstart Program”. Before meeting Dr. Monk, I was lost. I no longer knew who I was nor what I wanted to do in my career. As an African American woman in the technology field, I was broken. We explored all the areas of my life and were able to pinpoint where it all began. Some actions that I took away and practice everyday are:

1. Standing in my power daily unapologetically.
2. Take control of my thoughts and actions.
3. Assess whose help I need.
4. Yield to the woman I was created to be.

I highly recommend Dr. Monk. As a result of her coaching, I’m more bold, confident and most importantly, I’m authentically me.

Dr. Monk has been a great go-to resource for curated content specializing in DEI, leadership, conflict resolution, workplace communication, career and personal development. Her approach is not only research based but she can deliver impactful content to all levels from executives to individual contributors. She has provided content at community events, internal events, and private invite-only events for me. She has mastered the art of speaking to diverse populations while making the content relatable, relevant, timely, engaging, and applicable. After each of her sessions I receive positive survey results from attendees internally and externally that quantify the quality she provides. That’s why she remains a go-to resource because of her proven track record to not only deliver quality content with planning but also within short notice. I highly recommend her services if you are looking for action and implementation.

I first learned about Dr. Monk from colleagues who had participated in her Bold Moves Experience. Hearing such positive feedback from the participants led me to engage Dr. Monk in facilitating a session for our faculty and staff. She led a session entitled, Understanding Guilt & Shame: Living Beyond Traditional Expectations which was extremely engaging and informative. Since first facilitating the Bold Moves Experience for our organization, several others have sought the services and expertise of Dr. Monk. She continues to serve as a valuable resource as we all work to facilitate more equitable and empowering workplaces.

Dr. Christi Monk is a powerhouse of knowledge in education, professional growth and corporate culture. Her trademarked “Bold Moves” workshop was my introduction to her outstanding training and assessment tool kit. I was inspired by her expansive skill set and results produced in Communications, Conflict Resolutions, Career Development and Leadership Training. In 2020-2021, Dr. Monk volunteered with the National Contract Management Association(NCMA), Tyson’s Corner Chapter as Co-Chairperson of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion committee and Also supported the chapter as speaker for the virtual Impact Forum and Career Fair.
