Emotional Resilience Specialist - UK

Carole has been an executive and career coach for over 20 years. She specialises in emotional resilience. She has a Doctorate in Resilience Coaching and her latest book ‘Resilience’ was nominated as coaching book of the year.


Carole’s particular interest is in developing the resilience of leaders so that they are resourced for the increasingly complex and often unpredictable demands on them so that they can build resilience in their own teams. She is often called on when individuals move into new roles that shift them from being comfortable with their own expertise to leading across a broader remit. She works with individuals who are experiencing challenges which are depleting their resources and impacting on how they are leading themselves and others. She also gets called on to work with individuals who are considering ‘What next?’

Commercial Experience

Carole worked for an international management consultancy and a UK business school. She has researched and consulted on issues relating to career, management, coaching and resilience and published six books as well as academic articles. She has been a columnist on a national newspaper writing about people issues in organisations.


Carole’s approach is a mixture of understanding, support, practicality and enough challenge to prompt new thoughts that translate into action. Clients tell her she has a ‘helicopter view’ that helps them ‘get out of the weeds’.

Coaching Experience

Over her 20 years in coaching, Carole has coached more than 5000 hours at senior level. Her work extends across the public, private and not for profit sectors in the UK and internationally. She coaches senior leaders in UNICEF, Deutsche Bank, Penguin Random House, most Government departments including HM Treasury, Cabinet Office, DWP and the Home Office, Imperial College, Genzyme, Omya, Arup, BP and the NHS.
