Meet Carole

While Carole has a deep education in industrial organizational psychology, her life experiences and passion for great leaders are the sources of power behind connecting the dots for her clients and audiences. 
As a military spouse, Carole moved her family repeatedly and reimagined her career more than ever expected. Several car accidents and a scary cancer diagnosis presented immense challenges that solidified her outlook on life.  Carole understands how shifting your perspectives through trauma, unexpected change, and unintended consequences can reshape your life.
Her journey revealed and highlighted the three factors most likely to contribute to our success: how to think before responding (emotional intelligence), how to get back up when times are tough (resilience), and how to conquer the inner critic (positive intelligence).  
Carole shares these insights with her clients and audiences so they can find a version of success that inspires them to become exceptional leaders and discover their own path to rewarding and meaningful success. When she’s not coaching or loving her family, she spends her time hiking and cycling the mountains of Colorado.
