Meet Carolina Caro, Our Founder

Carolina Caro is a speaker, leadership coach, and corporate trainer. She has empowered 10,000+ people to develop conscious leadership skills and inclusive workplaces.

Working with leaders from organizations that include the FBI, NASA, Warner, McDonalds and more, she draws on her diverse background spanning science, business, and the arts to bring a unique perspective to teams, individuals, and audiences and help them identify their blind spots.

Having experienced the transformational power herself, she’s on a mission to help others create the intentional results they desire rather than perpetuating outcomes from their default habits.


The neuroscience behind all the work that we do excites me the most. I’m a scientist by training and have experienced first hand how transformative this process can be.

As the daughter of immigrant parents, I know what it’s like to be affected by Generational Conditioning™ (the beliefs and behaviors that have been passed down to me) and to put in the work to discern which perspectives need to evolve to adapt with ever-changing landscapes. As a student of these principles, my life has been impacted in ways I could have never imagined. In fact, I believe in this work so much that I changed my career path to dedicate my life to this.

The Neuroscience Behind Generational Conditioning

From a young age, we are conditioned to think and behave in certain ways based on our upbringing. These patterns become deeply ingrained and some of them serve to amplify our leadership potential while others detract from it. 

Changing those patterns requires becoming aware of them, recognizing what triggers them, and consciously choosing a different behavior.
