Christina Blacken (she/her) help people adopt new stories and practices about leadership and power that creates deeper trust, belonging, equity, and innovation in their relationships inside and outside of the workplace.
Christina Blacken is a public speaker, performer, and founder of The New Quo. The New Quo is a leadership development and equity consultancy. She creates transformational learning experiences that challenge the status quo on leadership and behavior change, and teaches current and emerging leaders how to use their narrative intelligence, which is the power of story to change behavior, to identify and shift cultural stories and limiting beliefs about relationships, self-worth, and power so they can build deeper acceptance and trust within themselves and others. Christina helps organizations achieve status-quo breaking goals by turning their values of diversity, equity and inclusion into powerful policies, practices, and communication habits. She’s applied this methodology to a variety of equity problems, from social media content
Christina Blacken teaches me something nearly every time I interact with her. It’s not just what she talks about it but how she frames it. She has a gift for explaining something in ways you can’t unhear.
Christina will make you think, but then she will challenge you with actionable steps to get to work. I love that she can both change a person’s perspective and then give them steps to put those ideas into action.
I don’t want to set any expectations that Christina is a stand up, but she’s definitely funny. I find that her insight, paired with wit can hit you in the funny bone in just the right way to make big topics, very amusing.
Christina Blacken is an unforgettable person. She has an energy about her that comes out in so many unique ways, like singing, laughing, and then immediately dropping into something really serious. It’s an experience to be around her.
