Carolyn Ou is a geek, impish speaker and mother of two who has been everything from a change management and communications consultant, to college dean and marketing copywriter. She coaches new and emerging leaders, creatives and entrepreneurs, consultants, politicians, educators and more, to get out of their heads and step into action around their work and life vision.
In creating Sandbox Consulting, Carolyn was inspired by the sandbox as a place where both everyone can create and explore without fear of the results, and in doing so enjoy the process. Her goal in creating Sandbox Consulting is to bring some of that simplicity, clarity and play to her clients in their daily work and life.
Carolyn has an MBA in Strategy from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business and a BA with Honors in Renaissance Studies and Comparative Literature from Brown University. She is a certified Marshall Goldsmith Executive Coaching Stakeholder-Centered Coach and Executive/Career Coaching provider for the Brown University Alumni Association, as well as co-founder and head wrangler of the Logan Square Mompreneurs group in Chicago, Illinois. In her spare time, you can find her singing and playing keyboard and fiddle with the Little Miss Ann Band, a kindie band in Chicago.
To schedule a sample coaching experience with me, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here are a couple comments on what it’s like to work with me:
“Carolyn was wonderful to work with, a great mix of professional and personal. I will always reflect on the conversations with had and the coaching Carolyn provided. I appreciate that she took my goals to heart…really got to know me, and together, we made progress on each goal.” — Manager, Strategy Consulting Firm
“I love Carolyn’s versatile, intelligent and playful style! I experienced an abrupt life change shortly after we began our coaching. Carolyn was able to skillfully meet me where I was at the beginning of each session. Coaching with Carolyn helped me to discover and articulate my own values. She introduced me to concepts and tools that continue to expand my understanding of who I am in this world.” – Oriana Fowler, launched her own photography business (www.orianaphotography.com)
