Owner of Pinnacle Culture
Carolyn is on a mission to shift our workplaces from transactional jobs to places where people can grow, transform and thrive while feeling energized, inspired and motivated to do their best work. She designed Purposeful Workplace Experiences (PWE) to empower individuals and teams to transform workplace culture by becoming change agents and driving culture from the bottom up.
As a Workplace Culture Architect, Carolyn works with business leaders who place their people at the core of business success to create organizational systems and practices that are people-centered, forward thinking and prepared for demanding and challenging business climates.
Carolyn is the owner of Pinnacle Culture and a Senior Associate with 1-degree. She has a 25-year track record helping organizations enhance the employee experience and evolve their workplace culture. She has worked with clients across various industries, ranging from small businesses to large corporations, and as a Senior Business Leader in the pharmaceutical industry leading teams through significant change.
Her real-life experience is bolstered by her love of learning. She has a Master of Arts in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from Adler University in Chicago, a Human Resource Management Diploma from Sheridan College, a Bachelor of Education from the University of Toronto, and a Bachelor of Kinesiology from McMaster. Her latest undertaking is Brene Brown’s Dare to Lead. Carolyn will be a certified facilitator of the program this fall. She’s also an avid reader (you can access her latest recommendations in Carolyn’s Corner).
Her podcast PWE & ME, now in its third season, is designed to inspire people at all organizational levels to create purposeful workplace experiences and close the gap between what people say should happen to transform the workplace and what is actually happening. She is also the author of Amazon best-seller Rules of Engagement: Building a workplace culture to thrive in an uncertain world.
You can join the discussion with Carolyn through her social media communities on Twitter (@PinnacleCarolyn), Instagram (@CultureCarolyn) and LinkedIn, where she leads conversations about creating thriving workplaces.
