I’m Carol Pfeiffer and I’m an Executive Coach and Leadership Consultant based in the Denver/Boulder Metro area. I want to help you grow your leadership effectiveness so you can experience tremendous joy and fulfillment in your life, and you can then share it with others.
The best leaders create the best workplaces and the greatest value to everyone in their world. In workplaces where employees thrive, EVERYONE WINS – leaders, employees, families, shareholders, and the community. I want YOU to be a catalyst for change in your organization, setting the example of how valuable great leaders are.
Carol Pfeiffer’s Story
With over 25 years of leadership development and human resources experience across a wide variety of industries, I have dedicated my life’s work to growing leaders who create great organizations.
In 2013, I reached a turning point in my career and I had a deep desire to press the pause button. I craved the time and space to rediscover my own sense of self and to consciously take steps to work in a different way. I knew I could have a greater impact if I got reconnected to my own top priorities.
I was ready to step away from corporate life and embark on a journey of health, wellness and self-discovery that ultimately would profoundly impact the direction of my life.
I have always taken a coach-like approach to my work and was inspired by my own professional coaches to fully step into my leadership potential. In turn, these powerful coaching experiences inspired me to become a certified coach myself. In 2015, I pushed past my own fears and limiting beliefs and launched my own executive coaching and leadership development consulting business.
Today, I coach dozens of leaders and lead hundreds more through workshops to develop their skills and expand their leadership impact. The journey I take with my clients guides them to show up as their “best self” as a leader and a human being. Your “best self” is not about perfection. It is about allowing your authenticity – your humanness – to fully show through as you navigate your path to expansive leadership. The example you set will naturally inspire others to follow you to great success.
Carol Pfeiffer’s Vision & Mission
My vision is that EVERYONE has the gift of a wonderful, inspiring leader and a fabulous place to go to work that beckons them to be their best. EVERYONE.
As a coach and facilitator, I focus my energy on bringing this vision alive through the leaders and organizations with whom I work. Here’s why:
Over the years, I had the pleasure of working for a distinct, few organizations that were firing on all cylinders. They experienced strong financial performance and high employee engagement. They had a culture of development and a strong sense of community and purpose.
Other companies I worked with missed the mark.
The difference between these organizations was ALWAYS about leadership. Effective leaders are highly self-aware, and they create trust, inspire possibilities, and evoke transformation. These leaders and their teams thrive personally and professionally. These leaders create great workplaces that then create sustainable profits and happier shareholders.
My mission is to help YOU live out your potential as a leader and help you to have a positive impact on those around you.
