So, what does being a leader even mean? Great question.
We’ve had many high powered executives say to us, “I would be a great leader if it weren’t for these damn people! I don’t know what to do. What to say. I know I’m supposed to understand myself—but what the heck does that mean? And understand the people I’m trying to lead? How would I do that!?”
It’s easy to feel swamped and trapped by all the advice on living a life you love, and it’s impossible to keep up with all the articles about personal and professional success. I’m not sure about you, but I hate information overload!
What’s the solution?
As we were supporting our clients in dealing with the challenges of leadership, we decided we needed to take all the stuff that is written on leadership, the research on what makes a difference, the hundreds of theories all claiming they are the way and find the core nuggets… the true game-changers. We’re committed to helping you know what to do and say in the moment.
We know that we can’t actually add hours to your day, but we can help you take action to make the most of the time you do have. We’ve created The Leadership Lab Library, a leadership and management training that’s online, so that you can learn at your own pace in an environment that works for you. The Lab was created so that you can really make progress in about an hour a week (just about 10 minutes a day!).
If you have a passion for greatness and want to grow in your ability to create the life you want, or are ready to expand your impact and influence, our Leadership Lab Library is the right place for you.

How does it work?
All of our content will be available to you at once, to use as your “leadership library.”
You’ll receive simple step-by-step leadership training, management coaching, and career leadership tools through videos, webinars, and presentations, along with coaching videos, downloadable worksheets and action guides, and community discussions. Plus, as a member of the Leadership Lab, you’ll also have the opportunity for discounts on other products, programs, and services.
One of the best ways to learn is to get small amounts of information along with the chance to practice and discuss the concepts over time. To support you in your learning, we’ve broken our leadership and management nuggets into a week-by-week format, so that you can learn, practice, and discuss these new concepts with us and with the Leadership Lab community. But as a member of the Leadership Lab Library version, feel free to pick and choose what you need for you and your team in the moment!
We’ll guide you and coach you as if you were here with us in our office (and we wish you were!).
This should really be called “What’s Not Included”? After years of coaching directors, managers and executives, we’re confident that we’ve got you covered.
The Leadership Lab will guide you through the same leadership, goal-setting, influence, communication, and decision-making basics that we provide executives and their teams across the U.S. (this content costs over $5,000 if done in person).
Below you’ll find clickable images that list our 36 weeks of course content. We’re always adding new items, so if you don’t see something you feel should be included, please let us know.

What’s the content look like?
We know people often like to “try before they buy” and why should this be any different? Below you’ll find a sneak peek of the training you’ll get in The Lab.

But it’s important to know how to set yourself up for success as you’re choosing your goals. In this lesson, we share with you what the research on goal setting can teach you. We want to help you step into your leadership in ways that are good for you and for the world, and to help you to succeed in creating the life you love.
One of the most important aspects of being a good manager is understanding how to prioritize your work and the work of others.
Time management isn’t about managing time, it’s about knowing your priorities. In this lesson, you’ll learn some simple techniques to help you prioritize your schedule with the activities that will drive your success.
Career Leadership is the practice of being the leader and director of your career… throughout your entire life.
In this lesson, you’ll learn about the 5 Principles of Career Leadership and in later lessons, we’ll talk more in depth about each one. This is your opportunity to navigate your own career the way you want, from today forward.
We’ve found that the hardest thing to do in life is to put ourselves first.
Sometimes though, it’s the best way to be sure that we’re recharged and able to step into our lives more fully. This lesson is a reminder to you to take care of yourself, breathe, and look for times when you need to put the oxygen mask on yourself first.

What others are saying.
“Carpenter Smith Consulting made learning fun, leadership exciting, and allowed me to create win-win work and home environments. I could show up for coaching one day with the most ‘difficult’ problem and I would walk out an hour or two later with a lighter heart, a basket full of strategies that I created (with their help), and my confidence in myself restored.
Carpenter Smith Consulting unlocked some doors inside me with some ready understanding of concerns that face me as a leader, as a parent, and as a partner with some very simple solutions and practices that I continue to use today. They have been an integral part of my successful leadership role at work and home.”
— Katie Patricelli, Sr VP at Wells Fargo (Retired)
“In my work as Chair of the Board of a large multi-specialty healthcare practice, I found myself challenged to engage the physician leaders across the organization. In our work with Carpenter Smith Consulting, we learned leadership and engagement strategies that resulted in a dramatic shift in our culture and the growth in provider satisfaction from the 11th percentile to the 73rd percentile in just under 18 months! And, we have been able to sustain that over several years now.
Personally, the leadership coaching of CSC has helped me step fully into my power and leadership. Our work has built my skills, my confidence, and my credibility inside and outside the organization.”
— Sharon Crowell M.D., The Vancouver Clinic
