Cari Caldwell

USA

“I used to believe that change was simply a matter of long, hard work with a healthy dose of inspiration and perspiration. But the consistent & overwhelming levels of unpredictable change in my clients has forced me to reconsider what is really possible when the authentic readiness of an individual or system meets new developments in social technologies and is lead by facilitators and coaches who are ‘clean and clear’ and know their stuff.”

Cari began her career in the mid-90s with PricewaterhouseCoopers in a renegade organisational change and diversity division which produced  powerful results on the fringe of HR consultancy.  Since then she has had a bias for small groups of people doing amazing things in larger systems. Cari sees herself as an individual and organisational midwife who smells potential and possibility (and the lack there of!) and is able to hold space for growth or catalyse it as the situation requires.

She offers hard challenge underpinned by unwavering support in her coaching and consulting. She currently runs two businesses and relishes Future Considerations as a learning and testing ground for what she brings to her clients.
