Prepared to Lead exists to help individual leaders maximize their effectiveness by building better leadership and management skills.

Carol’s Story

Carol A. Walker founded Prepared to Lead in 2000, after devoting 15 years to studying and practicing management. While she thoroughly enjoyed being a leader in both a technology start-up and a Fortune 500 company, those experiences revealed her true calling.  Her love for developing and supporting young leaders in both of these organizations led her to create Prepared to Lead.

More Specifically

Carol spent 13 years in the Northeast Regional office of the Chubb Corporation, where she managed global property and casualty underwriting operations. Later, she served as a Senior Vice President of Operations for CCBN, an innovator of internet-based communications for corporate investor relations.

She holds an MBA from the Simmons Graduate School of Management and a B.A. from Dartmouth College.
