Carole is a former Stanford GSB prof (with a bunch of fancy titles) who taught their legendary Interpersonal Dynamic (aka "Touchy Feely") course for almost two decades before co-founding Leaders in Tech, a non-profit which brings everything she taught at Stanford to Tech startup CEOs and their organizations. She is also the co-author of Penguin Random House's new Connect which contains the lessons of Touchy Feely that students consistently describe as life-changing because it didn't only make them better leaders -- it made them (and continues to make them) better sons, daughters, spouses, parents, siblings, friends and colleagues. Carole is not a career academic, having previously run a large sales and marketing organization for a Fortune 500 company, been a partner and principal in an international consulting firm and an executive coach. She serves on multiple boards. She was raised in Mexico City, and lives in Palo Alto, California with her husband of 36 years. They have two grown children and one grandson.
“Carole and David are masters at helping people bring IQ and EQ together to satisfy both and be successful. I recommend this book.” Ray Dalio, Founder or Bridgewater and author of NYT #1 Best Seller, Principles: Life and Work "It’s never been clearer that meaningful relationships are critical to a fulfilling and healthy life. Connect is a practical and timely book I highly recommend that shows us that by learning to connect with ourselves, we can more easily connect with others and build thriving relationships." — Arianna Huffington, Founder & CEO, Thrive Global At Stanford’s business school, the most popular course isn’t tech or entrepreneurship – it’s a class on interpersonal dynamics that’s affectionately known as Touchy-Feely. David Bradford and Carole Robin’s book is the next best thing to taking it. Full of thoughtful, actionable advice on showing vulnerability, setting healthy boundaries, earning and restoring trust, handling feedback and conflict, and building and strengthening relationships” -- Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Think Again and Originals “At LinkedIn, we made "Relationships Matter" one of our core values because the personal connections you make persist across jobs, companies, and careers. Connect offers a compelling and highly accessible roadmap for building relationships that lead to professional success and personal fulfillment. I highly recommend this book”. -- Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn and co-author of "Blitzscaling and the Alliance." "Learning to connect across differences and develop relationships in which we can actually see and hear others for who they are is becoming an imperative for nations and individuals alike. Connect is a carefully structured set of concepts and practices that readers can apply to everything from their marriages to their management challenges. It's a treasure!" Anne-Marie Slaughter, CEO, New America "One of my goals, and the reason I founded MasterClass, is my fervent commitment to democratizing access to the world's best. I am thrilled that the immensely valuable lessons in Connect are now available to millions of people. I encourage anyone who cares to develop stronger and more meaningful relationships anywhere in their life to read this book." -- David Rogier, Founder and CEO at MasterClass "I owe most of what I have accomplished in both my career and in my personal life to the lessons I learned in the course on which Connect is based. I can’t wait to give a copy of Connect to my teammates, my family, and my friends." Dara Treseder, CMO, Peloton and Board Director, PG&E
