Carol McClelland Fields

Carol McClelland Fields, PhD, an award-winning author and Board Certified Coach, has been fascinated by how our culture navigates personal, professional, and large-scale transitions since the start of her career. She relies on her intuition, observation skills, and experience to notice and articulate emerging trends about change and how those trends impact our lives.

Carol supports Change Catalysts who work with clients creating and navigating personal and professional transitions. As the pace, scope, intensity, and the number of changes we face grow exponentially, Change Catalysts are on the front lines, helping clients find meaning in the chaos and create more of what they want in life.

As a dedicated Change Catalyst herself, Carol’s work has always centered around three themes: helping people gain clarity about the work they are called to do, guiding people through difficult times of transition using her Seasons of Change model, and training other Change Catalysts how to integrate the programs she’s created into their work with clients. She now uses her expertise to help other Change Catalysts flourish personally, professionally, and financially.
