If you are looking for an empathetic, tenacious professional who is an extremely good listener, you've come to the right place.
I have 40+ years of experience in the corporate and nonprofit sectors. I have excelled in all aspects of my career an am known as a valued leader in the several different career paths I've had the opportunity to take.
With my years of professional experience I have also encountered bumps along the way. Through this, I have developed the ability to navigate through corporate bureaucracy, employee relations and management issues. Most importantly, I am adamant about tackling the very real current social issue of...ageism.
As a triathlete, I know the mental stamina it takes to achieve monumental goals I thought were impossible, or only a dream. What dreams do you have? What's on your bucket list that you would like to accomplish?
As a trained life and career coach, published author and accomplished speaker, I am dedicated to inspiring people to achieve their full potential, despite the many roadblocks life can bring. I am passionate about helping others, building relationships and making the world a better place. I'd love to work with you to make the next chapter in life, your best chapter!
"Carol is one of the most talented and compassionate leaders I have ever worked with. Not only she is extremely talented and experienced professional in the philanthropic and corporate space but she is driven by her big heart and her desire to do good in the community.
Throughout the years I have learned so much from her and enjoyed working together on so many projects. As a coach Carol brings your best qualities to the front and kindly makes you think about the possibilities to grow and learn, even from a negative experience. If you are ever as lucky as I am to have her as a coach, you are in for a real development experience to learn from the very best.
In a time when women continue challenging the lack of representation in so many industries, Carol is working on nurturing strong women and serves as a role model to so many leaders hoping to excel in their respective industries."

"In working with Carol, I have found her approach to coaching very refreshing. It's not the standard coach's playbook sort of relationship. It is much more interactive and collaborative and Carol helps you find your OWN way without being invasive.
In one particular session, I had shared with Carol a particular challenge that I was having and she helped me see quite clearly the actions that I needed to take, and I honestly felt compelled to take those actions since it had become obvious to me what the path forward needed to be.
I would HIGHLY recommend Carol to anyone and I would trust her to help you completely."
Business Development Coach
"There are times when you come upon a crossroad in your life, wondering which road do I take? The best thing in life sometimes comes in the way of having the courage to reach out to someone who can guide you through the crossroads and give you the tools to map out a new way of thinking and approaching life.
I have to say, being coached by Carol Urton is life-changing. Learning about Emotional Intelligence and how it correlates to every area of your life can transform your professional, and personal relationships. Carol is an artist in this area and has the experience and knowledge of how to move you forward when you are feeling stuck.
When an opportunity for coaching presents itself, grab it. It will change your life! Thank you, Carol, for your coaching and expertise. This experience has helped me grow!"
