Speaking

Bringing interaction, energy, authenticity, and inquiry to each event


Cara is an energetic speaker-teacher invested in offering new ways to look at existing thinking. She has effectively engaged audiences of up to 1000 participants.


With a background as a professor, I am most comfortable in real-time facilitation and demonstrating exercises during the course of my speaking. I love inviting participants to make immediate efforts at applying new learning. I collaborate carefully with hosts to enhance the outcomes of my speaking engagements beyond those we initially laid out.

You could be right on the edge of a breakthrough. There’s one more door to kick down, Cara is ready to kick it down with you.

We’re still achieving but we’re losing less of ourselves while we’re doing it. I’m still leading, but I am remaining more of myself while I’m doing it.

If I’m experiencing a major hold back, it is me that is holding up the process, it doesn’t need to be seen in a bad way. Accept it and find solutions to move forward.

When we started coaching I started to feel like me again – a version of me that I could stay all day long.

When I started to work and lead this different way, it really let my team spread their wings, I’m delegating better and we’re all getting more done because I know better who I am as the leader.

In this work, my picture has gotten so much bigger, I realize that everything has at least an opposite side, if not a three-dimensional aspect to it. I went from a flat paper map, to a landscape in relief.

This will go down in history as one of the most influential moments of my life… feeling empowered, knowing what I can realistically action to step myself closer to my goals.

This work has shown me that I don’t have to choose between being a leader and being myself.

In coaching, I slowed down to choose my commitments differently, to know why, to see how. I started to grow the mental stamina to see more perspectives.
