Carol Howard, Director

I partner with people and teams to help them find clarity, confidence, and capability. My philosophy is that the best solutions and ideas are designed by you, for you. My work is as a coach, facilitator and co-designer.

I have a reputation for helping people and teams discover, explore and experiment with new ways of thinking, working and being. My approach is evidence-based.

My experience includes many years working with leading companies including: Cisco, Twitter, Snap Inc, Virgin and Optus. I partner with progressive people and teams to explore what’s possible, challenge the status quo and work with integrity,  energy and purpose.

My background is leading complex global projects, programs and teams out of Australia and the United States. I led large-scale business operations, technology and transformation initiatives impacting 70,000 employees around the globe.

It also included working at the senior executive level and coalface: leading complex initiatives, getting global projects back on track, and coaching senior executives and leadership teams through complexity, ambiguity and change.

Design thinking, neuroscience, appreciative inquiry, agile change, positive psychology, systems thinking and participative facilitation influence my approach. I bring pragmatism, humour and a reputation for getting results.

I now live in lovely New Zealand with 40% of my clients here and 60% in the US/Asia. I have lived in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and United States.
