Carol Wheeler

Carol Wheeler, Ph.D., Founder, NopaLeadership

Leader, do you struggle to get the best out of your people? I provide leadership training and coaching so you can enjoy more team commitment and collaboration and less conflict at work. I’ve been fascinated by people and business my whole life long. I started studying leadership and continued until I received a Ph.D. in Leadership Studies. Formally, I’m Dr. Wheeler. But you can call me Carol. After a lifetime of studying, teaching, and leading, I have concluded that inspiration strikes when people understand their unique contributions to their organization. NopaLeadership was formed to bring out the best in people through empowered leadership. So organizations can reach their objectives with the most important resource of all – people.
