Hi, I’m Carol!

I help leaders enhance their management knowledge, develop strategic work, and boost the productivity in teams. Being a skilled psychologist with over 20 years of experience in people development (10 of those as an executive), I am the solution you need to advance as a professional, save time, and get results that will improve retentions of both your customers and top talents.

A FEW FUN FACTS ABOUT MYSELF:

FIT MOM

Not only am I the proud momma of a beautiful girl named Sofia, it also brings me joy to hear my daughter call me ‘fitness mom’. I’m also a huge lover of yoga and meditation. Work-life balance means the world to me and I aim to live a happy, healthy life, always.

NATURE LOVER

Some people want a home close to public transportations, others want a balcony overlooking the entire city. To me, my biggest real-estate ambition is to live as close to nature as possible. I love pedaling my bike outside, taking long walks for fresh air, and simply disconnecting from the real world.

CRAZY CAT LADY

Being a lover of cute things, I of course have a cat. Wait, not one, two. I mean, how many cats is too many?

NERDY BETTY

My brothers and sisters (I have two of each) always called me ‘the smart one’. Indeed, I love to study and I am considered very nerdy. And ever since a young age I have always had a passion for helping others, supporting my youngest sister with her math and history lessons.

Carol is a very dedicated and competent professional, with very positive energy and a relentless pursuit of excellence. We worked together at RTM where she implemented the HR area including the development of strategic and tactical HR planning, policy definition, among others and also acted as a mentor helping me and other managers in leadership issues and decision-making processes.

HOW IT ALL STARTED

When I graduated from psychology, I felt more lost than a peanut in a toothless mouth. The knowledge my university gave me was priceless. A state-of-the-art training, with a huge technical security. After a few difficulties in life, which included a frustrated attempt to open my own clinic, handling the nuances of having a new baby, and making it on my own as a single mother, I felt like my career wasn’t off to a great start.  That’s when my brother gave me a very important career insight. He said, “Carol, this dream of clinical psychology has become too heavy to carry. Go to HR!”  Suddenly the click… and everything changed. I realized that I loved working for projects, providing training, making diagnoses, and proposing creative and well-founded solutions. 
Soon I got a job in consultancy. From there, what followed was a succession of opportunities that led me to major jobs, such as working as head of HR, which only fostered my people management skills. 10 years working in HR made me an expert in structuring the sector and advising executives in the management of their teams.  But my ever-increasing thirst for career growth didn’t stop there.  I wanted to make the best usage of my abilities, skills, and expertise.  The goal now was to bring my experiences and knowledge together so that I could help people both in personal and professional development objectively and at the same time in-depth. Thus, Palombini was born as a result from this idea of union between Psychology, HR and Education, my great passions. My name is Carol Palombini, I am a Psychologist, consultant and mentor in people management, and I want to fill your life with professional clarity.  Let’s go?
