Carla Harris, CEO

She loves people! And doing what she can to help people become better people is what she is all about.

As the Founder and CEO of The People Institute, Carla's sole mission is to help companies serve clients better by serving one another better. Ms. Harris started ImageWorks in 1997 and re-branded the company as The People Institute in 2018 because people are the heartbeat of any organization. Carla has worked with both public- and private-sector clients in the area of workforce and professional development training, respectively.

Carla was a pioneer in the South Florida market as the first image consultant to merge image consulting with professional development to assist transitioning and low-income job seekers.
