Scott Carbonara

As a corporate leader, Scott guided a staff of 13,000+ through extensive changes and mergers, and solved complex employee engagement issues that resulted in converting a dismal attrition rate of 38%, to a phenomenal 6.5%. He has served as executive director of communications, chief of staff, and key liaison for stakeholders in a multi-billion dollar healthcare organization. Prior to that, as a therapist, Scott directed a group home for at-risk youth, and later served as a crisis intervention counselor for their families. In that role, through often traumatic circumstances, he learned how to listen authentically, think on his feet, and find and apply simple solutions to complex human problems. His unique approach in this role resulted in a Family Therapist of the Year award for the State of Michigan. [+]
