Executive Coach Carrie Holtz

Carrie has more than three decades of experience working in complex, fast-paced organizations. For nearly 10 years, Carrie was a corporate turnaround consultant with PwC, providing advice to companies in financial and/or operational distress. During this time, Carrie developed a passion for organizational development and employee matters, which led her to a career in HR leadership.


Carrie has always been focused on delivering results. She now brings that same level of accountability when partnering with her clients, as a coach. Carrie builds trust quickly because she knows the right questions to ask – difficult as they may be – to tackle important and complex challenges. She enjoys working with emerging and established leaders to step outside of their comfort zones to achieve their desired goals and make lasting transformations.
 

On the personal side, Carrie loves traveling, hiking, and spending time with her family. She's married with four grown children and resides in New York City.

Emotional Intelligence Coaching

What is emotional intelligence?

Emotional intelligence is a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way.
