Charlotte attributes her successes in her career to three beliefs:
- Managers are NOT great because of their accomplishments but the accomplishments of the employees.
- Great employees become great when they feel valued and respected.
- Perception IS Reality.
When Charlotte is not in front of a computer, you can find her relaxing with a cup of Earl Grey surrounding by her black cats. She is an avid movie-lover and fan of Stephen King.
