About Carolyn Biondi

Creating supportive communities where all individuals can lead healthy, self-sufficient lives and thrive has been the driving force of my career. I bring over two decades of leadership experience, including nine years as Executive Director of social impact organization Arm In Arm, to support clients to unlock their potential so they can accomplish their goals and live the life of their dreams. A master’s degree from University of Pennsylvania, the founding academic institution in the field of positive psychology, provides me with leading-edge, evidence-based strategies to build high-performing teams with a culture of inclusion.

Carolyn Biondi, MAPP is Work and Life Performance Coach at Well Beyond, LLC, dedicated to improving the performance of individuals and teams. From 2011 to 2019, Carolyn served as Executive Director at Trenton, NJ-based Arm In Arm, which under her tenure received 4/4 rating from Charity Navigator for seven consecutive years, earning a score of 100% for financial health, accountability and transparency and placing among top 4% of charities nationwide.

Earlier in her career, Carolyn served in consulting roles at the University of Chicago’s SSA Management Institute and Deloitte’s public sector practice, as well as development and management roles at the largest network of community federally-qualified health centers in the nation.

Carolyn’s passion for building strong organizational culture and teams led her to obtain a master’s degree in applied positive psychology at the University of Pennsylvania in 2019. Upon graduating, she formed Well Beyond as a platform for her coaching services. Her client-centered approach helps leaders to fulfill their potential, to achieve goals and to realize their organizational vision.

In addition to her management and coaching experience, Carolyn has been on a life-long journey to understand what makes humans resilient, particularly after traumatic experience. To this end, she has earned a master’s degree in social work, as well as certifications in yoga and trauma-informed care. Most recently, she earned certification as an Energy LeadershipTM Index (ELI) Master Practitioner through the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching. The ELI is a statistically reliable and externally validated tool that measures one’s ability to self-lead and lead others, while providing insights into stress reactions so that those reactions can be recognized—and consciously modified, a key strategy of resilience.
What my clients have to say color

I worked with Carolyn during her tenure as Executive Director at Arm In Arm. As a consultant bringing positive psychology practices to her team, I was impressed by Carolyn’s openness and willingness to embrace new ways of managing to transform her staff culture. Over several years, I witnessed the positive impact of her efforts to empower her staff and to create a collaborative, cooperative and creative work environment. With her MAPP education, Carolyn is well-equipped to help other organizations to do the same.

MAPP, Lead Academy

I know it’s not common for someone to benefit immediately from a coaching session, but after our talk I seemed to move effortlessly and enthusiastically through a project that I had avoided for weeks! The questions you asked help me explore my own thinking patterns and to notice how unhelpful some of my thoughts were. Making small shifts opened up a flow of energy that I was previously keeping trapped under my worries. I am just delighted that this project is off my shoulders!
