Full biography of Carole Gaskell

Carole Gaskell’s background

Carole Gaskell is a highly-acclaimed coach, inspirational speaker and best-selling author in the field of people and leadership development. She has made numerous TV and radio appearances and is a regular contributor to business, national and consumer publications.

A keynote speaker, leadership facilitator and coach to senior business leaders and their teams, Carole helps them reach their full potential and to create high-performance cultures within their organisations.

She is the author of two global bestselling books “Transform Your Life – 10 Steps to Real Results” and “Your Pocket Life Coach” and two specialist books: “Full Potential Leadership – a Provocative Call to Make a Dramatic Difference” and “Full Potential Coach – Transforming People’s Potential into Results”.

Carole demonstrates a new approach to energising people, truly measuring and improving motivation throughout an organisation – motivational mapping – to unlock the real key to improved energy, engagement and performance.

Motivation is the missing ingredient in many change programmes, but crucial to success. Motivated staff are 50% more likely to exceed their performance targets, while the best companies at engaging people achieve 4.5 times the revenue growth.

Carole Gaskell shows audiences how to:

  • Fire people up by knowing their top 3 and lowest motivators and % motivation scores right now
  • Understand the 9 work motivators and ‘hot buttons’ — to accurately measure, map and track motivation across your organisation — bottom up and top down — by teams and individually
  • Power up your leadership team and address mismatches between behaviour and action
  • Reveal the blockages and de-motivators that drain energy and performance
  • Create an energised, collaborative, agile culture
  • Radically improve customer satisfaction and loyalty with a highly motivated workforce

Carole has delivered keynotes at conferences in the UK and internationally, including CIPD in UK and Asia Pacific, worldwide investment conferences and Vistage CEO groups. She has spoken for clients including Ageas, Alzheimer’s Society, Harrods, Heinz, Hilton Hotels, Lend Lease, Mercer, Nationwide Building Society, Starbucks, Tesco, VW Group, William Hill and United Utilities, along with a variety of SMEs throughout the UK.

The Full Potential session that Carole presented at Mercer's Global Investment Forum was a fantastic hit. Provocative and educational, it created a real buzz of discussion. Optimising communication and co-operation by understanding different personality types, is key to success in any business relationship.'
