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.
