ABOUT CHARLIE RUIZ
Charlie’s coaching journey starts and continues in the spirit of high-performance. As a former professional athlete, now mental performance coach and communication consultant he’s been integrated in all facets of leadership development and mental performance. In addition to heading up a 1:1 coaching product, he’s facilitated upwards of 600 + management trainings for companies across the start-up and fortune 100 (MLB, Google, Coinbase, SAP, Apple, and Starbucks). Working in professional sports, high- tech and non-profit, he’s coached founders, professional coaches, and C-suite executives in both group and 1:1 settings.
Training with coaches in sport and technology, his experimental style helps leaders gain confidence and get out of their own way. Leveraging mental discipline as a cornerstone, he believes preparation and consistency is key to executing in the moment. Preparation starts with gaining clarity, committing to action and creating habitual routines that facilitate growth across industry.
Before the jump into entrepreneurship , Charlie was drafted in the 10th round of the 2009 MLB Draft by the Colorado Rockies. After years identifying with one singular identity, his new venture with CLR Connection is in service to athletes, veterans and industry executives experiencing career pivots and maintaining levels of high performance through practical coaching – with the mental edge! His aim is to not just help with the transition but enhance while leading through transition. This includes maintaining intentional focus, navigating high-pressure moments, and identifying techniques to stay connected to peak performance behaviors. Once identified, he works to build habits, up-level communication and optimize action as it relates to sustaining leadership performance, no matter what industry you find yourself in – on or off the field.

Here is what previous clients have to say:
“Charlie has easily been one of the most significant influences in my professional development. He doesn’t just offer practical guidance on communication, people management, and conflict resolution, but we also dive into my emotional well-being and how that impacts my performance.
Together, we explore topics such as identifying sources of energy and how to harness them, confronting fears that may impede growth, and understanding the factors that affect my daily moods and attitudes.
Now having worked with Charlie for multiple years, I’m not only a better communicator, strategic thinker, and manager, but I’ve also gained a much better understanding of who I am and how that impacts my work, relationships, and performance.”
“Charlie is the person that helped me make sense of everything I knew I wanted to do, but didn’t know where to start. After just a few short weeks with my additional role I was undoubtedly busier. The physical demands on my time were much higher. With Charlies coaching, I was able to be more productive, more efficient, less reactive and had more free time. It was really powerful for me to regain control in how I want to allocate my time. I have fully appreciated his ability to meet me where I’m at. I can sniff out a cookie cutter approach and Charlie has my full trust to work with me, rather than force me to fit inside of a system. He understands my strengths and helps me discover ways to let those flourish. He has listened (elite level skill of his), and given me tools and ideas that I’ve been able to implement in ways that make sense to me.
I will forever be grateful for Charlie for the mindset he has helped give back to me.”
