to another pathway to successful leadership




Is your organization struggling with the "Great Break-up?"


Over the last two years, women have experienced a revolutionary shift in leadership. When 1 in 4 women left the workplace during the pandemic and have continued to do so during the Great Breakup. It's left a tremendous vacuum in the future of women's leadership.

McKinsey research found that gender-diverse companies experience better financial performance. According to DDI research, companies whose leadership ranks consist of at least 30% women are 12 times more likely to be among the top 20% of companies based on financial performance.

But while some women have left, those who remained have stepped up to the moment and taken on the extra work that comes with it. However, their contributions have often gone unrecognized, unrewarded, and unappreciated.

They are also more likely to face microaggressions that challenge their competence—such as being interrupted, hearing comments on their emotional state, or having their judgment questioned. Coupled with dealing with their own imposter syndrome, the stress can become almost unbearable.

How do you help create an environment where your women of color leaders develop unwavering confidence, inspire your team, and drive results without being on the brink of burnout or quitting?


Underrepresented groups are significantly impacted.

It’s Time To Help Your Leaders to Thrive

Leadership is about so much more than just leading people. It's not just a role but a way of being. It's in how you manage your time, approach your goals, deal with disappointments or setbacks, and show up even in the midst of your own self-doubt.

This program is designed to provide your women of color emerging executives and senior leaders with a safe place to nurture their inner selves and step into their power without losing momentum.

77% of the highest-achieving women and leaders have access to an inner circle of other women for support and empowerment.




Thrive Leadership is a nine (9) month group coaching and mastermind program designed to help your leaders master the inner game of leadership, resulting in outward success. This program is for women of color who are emerging leaders or already in leadership positions struggling with self-doubt, imposter syndrome, and burnout. They are ready to courageously and unapologetically own their voice and power while elevating their careers.

In their PowHER Circles, they'll access the collective feminine power of other women to gain greater confidence in themselves and their brilliance, champion their authenticity, develop their self-advocacy skills, and further develop themselves to be powerful partners and empathetic leaders that represent the future of work.

Tactics and strategies will only go so far, but mastering the inner game is what will take your leaders from surviving to thriving as a leader.

They'll master the four pillars necessary to thrive and succeed in their leadership.

How It Works Together


In today’s highly competitive and volatile world of work, being isolated in silos can leave women feeling disconnected and stuck. When we feel alone, and out of alignment, the smallest effort can morph into a massive undertaking. We second guess and sabotage ourselves, over-deliver, and over-commit to the point of exhaustion and burnout.   

That's why the right support can make all the difference.

Your leaders will have access to:

🎯 Nine (9) 60-minute PowHER Circles over 9 months to support you as you grow and develop your leadership capacity.

🎯 Resources, worksheets, and other materials to apply the process to your specific development areas.

Studies show that when women work in collaborative communities of support they achieve their goals quicker and more success. 

I'm Dr. Carol Parker Walsh

Most would describe me as an executive/leadership coach, personal brand & career strategist, consultant, advocate, mother, or successful business owner. But in reality, I am so much more than that. And so are your leaders.

Society tries to put us in boxes, but that doesn't mean we have to stay there. Once we do we can start showing up at work and start showing up as the authentic, confident, powerful, and fulfilling leaders we desire and deserve to be.

I've coached, taught, and developed leaders over the last 25+ years (and even sued a few as an employment attorney), and now I want to share what I know with your leaders.

"I’ve never really spent dedicated time learning and growing and advancing myself as a professional outside of just doing my work, so it's been really beneficial for me to break out of old ways of thinking that for sure were not serving me or allowing me to move forward. I deeply value this work; I think it's just really powerful."

Erica Taylor, Chief Marketing Officer

"There have been so many times I have referenced what I have learned from working with you. It can be difficult to recognize your own blind spots without support. Nothing will ever change unless your mindset changes to open new doors to learning. 'If not now, then when?' was my question. This work is a gift to yourself."
