Strategic Business Consulting

For businesses, both large and small, looking to identify and capitalize on untapped market and global expansion opportunities, we are expert in navigating high-stakes decision-making by facilitating strategic consultation that unearths and evaluates new possibilities for growth. We then work with leaders and their teams to roadmap the game plan needed to profitably operationalize new initiatives and solutions. 


Executive Coaching

Having successfully led organizations with over 2,500 employees and leadership teams comprised of dynamically diverse personalities, strengths, and weaknesses, Carol has coached and developed hundreds of aspiring leaders for over 30 years for improved performance, leadership presence, and decision-making, and brings this experience into the fold when coaching her clients. 



Sales Training & Coaching

For clients struggling with languishing or average-performing sales results, Carol provides a longstanding track record of success in re-directing and empowering sales teams to achieve new levels of performance.  Key to her success has been the ability to stay close to the customer, and lead sales teams in refining their outreach efforts, engagement strategy, and overall value proposition.
