Individual & Group Coaching

Coaching is the most effective method available if you want to use professional support and training to identify and achieve meaningful goals. Caroline Miller has developed a unique niche serving leaders in many sectors that helps them to apply the science of goal setting and the research on flourishing to make proactive, positive changes for themselves and those around them.

Coaching in an Academic Setting

Coaching is not for everyone, but it is ideal for people who need accountability, focus and a structured approach to change.  Caroline’s pioneering work is admired and used often in academic settings like the Wharton Executive Education Program, as well as in corporate training programs around the world. She is renowned for the results she helps her clients to achieve in the shortest amount of time, and CEOs and senior executives appreciate her professionalism and discreet approach.


Coached by Caroline

For more than 25 years, I have created and refined a unique and successful approach to goal setting and the cultivation of grit, resilience and emotional flourishing. I work primarily with CEOs, senior leaders and high potentials in many countries and across varied industries who want a science-based and proven process for change, and who value my commitment to partnering with them to achieve elite results. As one of the first people in the world to attain a Masters degree in Applied Positive Psychology under “the father of Positive Psychology,” Dr. Martin Seligman, I have been honored as a pioneer in bringing the science of happiness to the field of coaching through my work and books, such as “Creating Your Best Life” and “Getting Grit.” In fact, Dr. Seligman noted in his book, “Flourish,” that my groundbreaking work to connect the science of happiness with the science of success had brought “much-needed change” to the profession of coaching.

Breakthroughs are rare, but that is exactly what Caroline Miller helped me achieve, through her coaching. In the time we worked together I went from feeling stuck (and having a vague idea of what I wanted to do) to taking action on a clear and meaningful vision for my future. The information, insights and motivation that Caroline provided were critical to making that happen.

Caroline and I worked together over many years. She was instrumental in successfully building two great companies and executing on tremendous exit events. I relied on Caroline to brainstorm the most challenging problems. She provided highly valuable advice in assessing the team and prospective hires. Caroline helped me articulate strategy to our Company and become a more inspirational leader. She had an uncanny ability to provide me with fresh perspectives and new ideas to navigate our way to a winning path.

I’ve been working with Caroline as my executive coach for two years. I wish every female leader would think of a professional coach as part of her core team. Caroline is a goal setting expert who has changed the way I look at long-term vision and how to succeed at difficult but meaningful goals. Knowing a well-trained coach has your back and can be a confidential advisor has made me more effective, confident and focused. The benefits have even been felt by my close friends and colleagues.

Working with Caroline has been immensely rewarding. Caroline worked with me during some of the most dynamic apexes of my career. Through that she has been an amazing coach and a fantastic listener who gave me the advice, guidance, and brainstorming that I need to succeed. Her depth and breadth of knowledge is unrivaled and the techniques and approaches we have practiced will enable me to continue to improve now and in the future.

Working with Caroline has been the best investment in myself. She is so intuitiveCaroline helped me understand why I was successful in certain situations and why I was hitting roadblocks in others. She was unbelievably skilled at helping me set goals based on my particular strengths. She was firm, but kind, in holding me accountable to take steps in furtherance of my goals.

Interested in becoming an individual client or having me work with your CEO and senior leaders on science-backed ways to succeed?

Since coaching works best when the “fit” is right between the coach and client, I offer one reduced fee thirty-minute session to understand your situation and answer any questions about my training, what I do that sets me apart from other executive coaches, and my time-tested, proven approaches to achieving success and maximizing flourishing, grit and a resilient mindset. 

Two-Hour Strengths & Goals Breakthrough Session

This is the perfect and affordable one-time exploration of how the research and science from Positive Psychology, motivation, grit and change can be used instantly to be your “best self” and approach goals with more confidence, courage and resilience. A 30-page booklet guides the participant through unique exercises prior to the session to prepare for a deep dive into one’s character strengths – their overuse, underuse and ideal use – and the creation of a framework for pursuing goals moving forward from an evidence-based perspective.
