Caroline was a powerhouse at our 2016 leadership conference. She challenged us to put the ‘awe’ back into awesome and how to use grit to accomplish our hard goals.

Caroline Miller has been Vector’s Executive Coach for several months now, which has completely altered the dynamic of our entire office. Because of that success, we contracted with her to address our senior management team on the topics of positive phycology and “grit”. In my 40 years in business, I have never left a presentation with the enthusiasm for both business and life as I did yesterday. She spoke to us for two hours and without exception, every one of my managers wished she could have stayed longer. All I can say is “motivating, incredible and informative”

Marc S. Berman, President & CEO of Vector Technical

Caroline opened our conference with a talk about achieving happiness that was grounded in new research and, as a result, was thought-provoking as well as inspirational. Our audience of executive women continued to talk about Caroline's ideas for the rest of the conference. She really knocked it out of the park for us.

Marion Asnes, Envestnet

"Caroline, you delivered what we asked for and more! We've had terrific feedback that you were easy to relate to, your stories were relevant, and the research gave your talk credibility for a high-powered audience. Everyone agreed they got rejuvenated, reignited and recommitted to setting and accomplishing meaningful goals."

Quit or Grit? Caroline’s presentation to the membership of the Human Resources Leadership Forum of Washington, DC provided a unique and thought-provoking point of view about the relationship between goal-setting, achievement and behavioral change. Caroline’s ability to provide topical research and evidence, as well as relevant, real-world examples to her audience, is compelling. I encourage all leaders to follow her and take her Authentic Grit Challenge.
