CrisMarie Campbell  and Susan Clarke have been work and life partners for the last 20 years. Together they run a company called Thrive! Inc. where they offer speaking, coaching, consulting, retreats, workshops, and other services with one goal in mind: to help people realize their potential, and feel happy, healthy, and fully alive. In other words, to help people thrive!

For the last 20 years they’ve specialized in helping leaders, teams, and entire companies learn how transform conflict into creativity, innovation, and profit through their proven step-by-step process—a process honed working with hundreds of leaders and teams. They are authors of the business book: The Beauty of Conflict: Harnessing Your Team’s Competitive Advantage.

For the last decade, they’ve expanded their work from the boardroom to the bedroom, guiding romantic couples through difficult conversations – both big and small. They know that whether on a team at work, or in a marriage, the key to thriving involves knowing how to navigate and use the creative transformational energy of conflict. 

Their new book, The Beauty of Conflict for Couples is focused on helping individuals in a couple be a ME in the face of their WE to increase their passion, intimacy, and emotional connection.

Some of their corporate clients include Fortune 100 Companies such as Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, AT&T and Nationwide, as well as, the Gates Foundation, Children’s Hospital, and San Francisco Giants. 


What qualifies them to write a book like this one?


They share a pretty extensive résumé of credentials.

Susan has a Masters degree in Applied Behavioral Science and has worked as a family therapist, relationship coach, Equus coach, life coach, and business consultant.


CrisMarie started her career working as an engineer for a major aerospace company. Later, she earned an MBA, and then began working as a coach and consultant for people, teams, and companies who were feeling stuck and craving changes. (And one time, she also competed in the Olympics. But that’s a whole ‘nother story!)

They’ve co-designed and run couples workshops, helping hundreds of couples over the last ten years both in Montana and at a center called The Haven in British Columbia, Canada.


You may think we even “like” conflict since we’ve written a business book on conflict— The Beauty of Conflict: Harnessing Your Team’s Competitive Advantage—and have a TEDx Talk: Conflict—Use It, Don’t Defuse It!


Please know that we’ve got decades of experience helping people to improve all kinds of relationships and get their mojo back—whether it’s sexual mojo, creative mojo, couples mojo, or even business/career mojo.
