Carol Kelly is a Strategic Consultant, Speaker, and Certified Professional Coach (CPC) with a deep expertise in working with clients during times of significant change and transition. Her work is unique, distinctive and considered to be best in class for this reason: unlike traditional training programs and seminars, Carol “intervenes” with a transformative, non-training, consultative process that uncovers the “root cause” of her clients’ problems and gets them solved “in real time.” She accomplishes this by a) analyzing the business and human system, b) designing high-impact interventions that are customized to her clients’ unique needs, c) bringing the key stakeholders together to roll up their sleeves, attack the problem, and leave with their problem solved. No theory. No fluff.
To this end, she is widely known as a strategic systems thinker and an “obstacle removal specialist.” She brings to her role a proven approach for turning “chaos” into “order,” “resistance” into “resilience.” Carol is accomplished in partnering with executives as a pragmatic problem solver that enables them to get their problems solved—quickly, get on with business, save time and money.
For more than 20 years, Carol has delivered interventions, seminars, and keynotes for thousands of leaders in Fortune 500– and smaller–companies including Alcatel-Lucent, AT&T, Atlantic Health Systems, Bell Laboratories, New York Methodist Hospital, Pershing, Philips Lighting Company, Philips Medical Systems, and the U.S. Department of Labor. To quote a client: “Carol’s insightful, high-energy delivery style fully engages the most resistant, most reserved participants in a dynamic learning environment with sustained, lasting change.”
Carol has been featured on WOR iHeart Radio and is a contributing editor for the CYACYL 24/Seven Magazine. A graduate of Indiana University, Bloomington, she received a Master of Science degree in Business Education. In addition, she holds numerous professional certifications from internationally acclaimed companies.
