I coach women in senior leadership roles who want to increase their influence & impact whilst being kinder to themselves or step into new executive roles successfully.
I'm a women's leadership coach, speaker and best selling author who works with women to develop their careers and their confidence. I also support employers to develop and retain their female talent, build their pipeline of female leaders and encourage male allyship.
My book 'Closing The Influence Gap: A practical guide for women leaders who want to be heard' reached #1 in the Amazon charts for Business Leadership Skills and Business Management and Leadership.
I also host the chart-topping Influence & Impact podcast for female leaders.
My background includes leadership roles in the commercial and charity sectors and raising £20 million for good causes.
"Carla's coaching was immensely helpful to me and guided me through some tricky situations at work. Carla has some wonderful tools and techniques that have really helped develop me as a leader and given me confidence to move forward. I'd thoroughly recommend Carla as a leadership coach."
"Influence and Impact has really helped me connect with the leader I had in myself all along. I found it incredibly helpful to be able to learn not only from Carla, but also draw on the experience of the others in the group, as I step into my own leadership journey. I found it really valuable being able to witness that everyone has their own strengths and challenges, and that that's completely normal! Now I have much more confidence in my own ability, as I have many more tools in my box, and know that I have it within myself to keep learning."
"Lead From Within is perfect for any woman who feels self-doubt in the workplace and needs a boost of confidence. I came away having experienced a complete cognitive gear-change. I have now found my inner leader, and know how to recognise (and banish!) my inner critic. I am sure that the tools Carla has given me will help my career no end."
"I loved this course and really learned a lot about what drives my beliefs and behaviours. I have already started to see benefits from some of the tools and techniques that Carla provides in the modules. In some cases I have found myself actively looking for situations I would previously avoided to put into practice some of the tips I have picked up. I feel a lot more confident in my ability to deal with situations I would usually spent days avoiding dealing with!"
""After publishing our Missing Out report on the female leadership gap in fundraising we wanted to offer the women in our sector support to step into leadership roles. We were delighted to partner with Carla and offer her proven Influence & Impact® programme to our members as a 3 month cohort. It has been a hugely successful partnership to date with over 30 women participating and very positive feedback about the impact on their confidence and influencing skills. We hope this partnership will continue and start to close that gap in female leadership.""
