Activating Confidence, Leadership, & Growth

Leadership is not a one-size-fits-all capability

Every individual’s leadership style is unique and represents the values and standards that they hold dear. This is especially true as people navigate their career trajectory – finding the right combination of passion, commitment, energy, and interest. 


To support your development journey, I pull from 20 years of coaching and leadership experience with proven tools & techniques to level up your leadership performance, presence, and productivity. And together, we will shape and empower your leadership style and intentional career design towards creating maximum performance and agility in your life.

About Me

Introductions All Around

I am Cara-Lyn Giovanniello or CLG 😉, an ICF-certified CPCC and PCC from San Francisco, California, and it is my belief that impactful leadership is a choice we each get to make. And the keys to success and fulfillment stem from emotional intelligence, tough love, and commitment to active development. Working with me, you will learn how to have master emotional, relational, and strategic intelligence towards creating deep influence and impact in your leadership, and throughout your organization.

“[Working with Cara Lyn] been a powerful force in helping me create positive change in my life. She’s infectiously energetic, hilarious, so fun to talk to, and sizzling with candor. She uses all of these assets and so many more to help me get crystal clear on what matters most and to hone my ability to make decisions in pursuit of that.”

Isabel Friedman, Project Manager, Shift SF CA

“Cara Lyn manages to be insightful, empathetic, pragmatic, and fierce all at once. She has helped me get on my way to achieving goals that I have been desperately trying to reach for years. Her coaching isn’t a magic pill, but her approach has empowered me to take responsibility for my actions and to create a closer alignment between my values and my behavior, all while being kind to myself in a way that is both freeing and motivating.”

Anna Meister, Financial Planning and Analysis Systems Analyst, UC Berkeley

“Her coaching approach is witty, wise, concise and on point. Working with Cara Lyn is like a slap in the face (no hiding, wake up!) and warm supportive hug at the same time. The thing about Cara Lyn is that she makes you feel like anything is possible and the result is you wanting to work harder and fully show up for yourself.”

Chief of Staff, Breathometer, San Francisco CA

“I finally feel whole and I think it’s a first, to be honest. I owe so much of this feeling of completeness to CLG Coaching! I couldn’t see myself in the scramble of things I was trying to do and trying to avoid. And now I feel so immensely grateful to know my purpose as a leader and business owner.”
