Dr. L. Carol Scott is a trauma-informed developmental psychologist, TEDx speaker, coach, and #1 International Best Selling author. Carol brings the SASS—Self-Aware Success Strategies to help you get along better on the adult playgrounds where you play. Also a respected early care and education (ECE) thought leader in the U.S., Carol is former president of the board for Child Care Aware® of America, and is consulting on emerging technology to revolutionise the ECE ecosystem.

Widely known as a remarkably talented and inspiring educator, Carol’s authenticity, warmth, humour, and skills elevate her impact with every audience.

Carol has a PhD in Developmental Psychology and stellar career working with hundreds of children and families nearly crashed and burned just as it was getting started when Carol faced her Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) in her 30s. But rather than become that nosedive and trail of smoke, she rose from the ashes of her loss, grief, and trauma.

In the introduction I talk about a programme that I am developing called the ABC of Confidence - a 5 week online course for ambitious working women. The course is still in development and I am looking for 20 people to sign up for the beta course to help me finalise the content.

This is a course for busy working women who want to be confident in all aspects of their lives. It is an amalgamation of my extensive experience of working in People and Culture for the majority of my career, running a successful confidence coaching practice and all the amazing things I have learnt by being the host of Women In Confidence.

The course includes videos and PDF information/workbooks and weekly Zoom meetings with me to go through the workbook and to answer any questions.

The first 20 people will get all the content and group time with me for just $375 AUD. The price of the final course will be $1875 AUD when it launches in January 2023. So this offer is 5 weeks of learning and growth for the price of 1 week of the final course. All I ask is that you complete the course and give me feedback.

The beta course starts on Monday 10th October so please let me know asap if you are up for it. Please email me on and put ABC on the subject line. I can then send you more information about the course and what we will be covering.
