In the interview, Caroline shares her diverse career path and why the quality of her day-to-day experience didn’t necessarily improve as she moved up the career ladder; how she decided to write a book on improving our professional lives; why focusing too narrowly on long-term career goals can backfire; why she sings Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love” before client workshops; the strategies that she uses to teach corporate leaders how to build resilience in the face of failure; and how she unintentionally ended up in a professional dance audition that failed spectacularly and what she learned from it.
