Hi, I'm Carolyn



I believe if you....
Learn to draw, you'll SEE differently
Practice drawing, you'll BREATHE differently
Learn art fundamentals, you'll THINK differently
and you'll COMMUNICATE differently

When you see, breathe, think and communicate differently, you LEAD differently.

I've been there


I know how critical, yet challenging it can be to remain calm, clear, and confident facing unpredictable circumstances and complex environments. The greater your resilience, adaptability, and focus the easier it is to remain calm, clear, and confident.  The last few years have been a roller coaster of unpredictability for most of us.

Many people have fewer internal resources to draw upon than ever. So why not find some new resources? A new approach to your leadership development? Strategy, innovation, and flexibility in the face of uncertainty require creativity. It's probably what drew you to business in the first place. But it's hard to feel creative when you're bogged down in the nuts and bolts of business. We like big picture strategy! New ideas and innovation! Entrepreneurship! Momentum! Creativity! Guess what? Creativity begets creativity. Try something new. Step outside of your comfort zone. Bring some excitement back to your business.
