Carole Kanchier, PhD
Registered Psychologist, Educator, Author/Columnist
I inform, inspire, and challenge people at any life stage to be all they can be! I encourage individuals to reassess their views of success and career advancement, and show people how to strengthen Quester traits such as purpose, intuition, authenticity, and mind power to succeed.
I research, write, coach, and speak about career and personal growth issues. As a psychologist, I help people understand and manage the feelings that come from their quests for satisfaction and success. In addition, I search for new ways to help people achieve meaningful, satisfying, and productive lives. I pioneered the unique, holistic, developmental model of lifelong learning, growth, and decision-making, described in Questers Dare to Change Your Job and Life.
My work is recognized globally. My columns have been syndicated by World Wide Media and CanWest Newswire; and my articles have been published in varied print and digital media including Psychology Today, Toronto Star, Montreal Gazette, Vancouver Sun, San Francisco Chronicle, San Jose and Silicon Valley Business Journal, New York Post, USA Weekend Magazine, Encyclopedia of Career Decisions and Work Issues, National Business Employment Weekly, Personal Excellence Magazine, South Africa National Magazine, Malaysia Business, Indonesia Inistar, Philippines Health News, Malaysia Her World, China Women Today, Yahoo! Careers, 6FigureJobs.com,WomenToday.com, Hotjobs.com, USAToday.com, Secretsofsuccess.com, LocalJobNetworks.com, and 4Hoteliers.com. Additionally, I have been interviewed by varied media.
With over 25 years of expertise in the career, human potential, education, and business fields, I have worked as a guidance department head, consulting psychologist, career coach, research director, and publicist. I chaired the Career Change Committee, National Career Development Association, taught at the University of California, Berkeley, University of California Santa Cruz, and the University of Alberta (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada). I earned my doctorate in counseling and career psychology at the University of Calgary; I was a visiting fellow at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology in Palo Alto, CA; and a visiting scholar at institutions of higher learning.
I resided, worked, and studied in Winnipeg, MN, Calgary and Edmonton, AB, Chicago, IL, Palo Alto and San Francisco, CA, and London, England. An avid reader, I enjoy hiking, exploring, politics, art and interior design, and stimulating conversation.
Currently, I reside in Calgary and Vancouver. I am available for media interviews, keynotes/presentations, and consultations.
