Carol Frohlinger, JD, is the woman other women turn to when they need help navigating sticky life situations. An internationally recognized speaker, Carol combines humor and practical advice to inspire women to negotiate more confidently and competently in all aspects of their lives.
Co-author of Her Place at the Table and Nice Girls Just Don't Get It, Carol draws on decades of research as well as her experience as a practicing attorney to demystify negotiation and enable women to get to "yes" with less stress.
Carol coined the term, "The Tiara Syndrome" - cited by Sheryl Sandberg in her NY Times bestselling blockbuster, Lean In. Women who suffer from it keep their heads down, deliver excellent work and hope that the right people notice - and place a tiara on their heads. Carol clearly delivers the message that "Hope is not a strategy - negotiation is!"
She also co-founded Negotiating Women, Inc., an advisory firm committed to helping organizations advance women into leadership positions.
Carol has appeared on The Today Show among other TV shows. Her advice has been featured by NPR, Martha Stewart Living Radio, The New York Times and more.
On a personal basis, Carol gets a good deal of practice as she negotiates with her husband and two adult children often!
