• You want a clear sense of direction, but you’re not sure what your next steps are—to stay or go, invest further in your field or pivot into something new.

  • You’re longing for alignment—a workplace and role that truly align with who you are, but you need a space to define the criteria for what’s most important to you.

  • You feel called to lead, and you want to garner the courage to step up and serve on a new level, but you want to do that thoughtfully and with integrity—as an authentic, confident leader.

Let’s Tackle Your Career Development Together

I’m Carole Ann Penney, CPC, and my mission is to help leaders like you navigate their work and lives with purpose and resilience.

I know firsthand what it feels like to realize that you’re on the path that you think you should be on. And I’ve experienced the shifts that come with intentionally choosing a path that authentically aligns with who you are and what you stand for.

As someone who came up through nonprofit organizations, I am passionate about making impactful leadership & career development coaching accessible to mission-driven leaders like you, who get paid in warm fuzzies vs. the big bucks. That’s why I created this program for you. 



Through this virtual coaching program for a small group of mission-driven leaders, we’ll sift through what’s in your head, your heart, and your resume to create your personal, actionable Strategic Career Compass.

Building momentum week to week, we’ll design your customized compass one point at a time—including your personal mission, the core values that drive you, your unique leadership style, your toolbox of strengths and skills, your personalized vision for your career development, and more.
