Caroline Webb's Biography

Caroline Webb is a management consultant, economist and renowned keynote speaker who has worked with hundreds of organizations to help their employees be more productive, energized, and successful – first as a Partner at McKinsey, where she continues to serve as a Senior Advisor, and now as CEO of her own firm, Sevenshift. She specializes in showing people how to transform their life and work for the better by applying insights from the behavioral sciences: behavioral economics, psychology and neuroscience.

Her book on that topic, How to Have a Good Day: Harness the Power of Behavioral Science to Transform Your Working Life (Crown Business, Feb 2016), has been hailed as one of the “top must-read business books of 2016” by both Inc. and Forbes, was described by Fortune as one of their top 5 “business books to learn from”, and has won plaudits from publications as diverse as the Financial Times, TIME magazine, and Cosmopolitan. A finalist in the 800-CEO-READ Business Book of the Year awards, How to Have a Good Day is being published in 16 languages and over 60 countries. It has been described by Susan Cain as “extraordinary”, Tom Peters as “magisterial,” Cass Sunstein as “wise and humane,” and Dan Pink as “smart, thorough, and eminently practical.”

During her extensive career with McKinsey & Company, Caroline co-founded McKinsey’s leadership practice, and designed the firm’s approach to transforming senior team dynamics and improving personal effectiveness. She also founded and remains faculty of McKinsey’s flagship training course for senior female executives. Before that, Caroline spent the 1990s working in public policy as an economist at the Bank of England. Her work there included global economic forecasting and institution building in post-communist eastern Europe.

Caroline Webb is a regular contributor to Harvard Business Review, and she has written on behavioral change topics for Fast Company, Quartz, Business Insider, Huffington Post and WIRED. Her work has also been widely featured in national and international media over the years, for example in The Economist, The Financial Times, The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Guardian, Inc., Forbes, Fortune, and BBC Radio.

She is a Founding Fellow of the Harvard-affiliated Institute of Coaching and has degrees in Economics from Cambridge and Oxford Universities. Caroline is based in New York, but travels frequently to give speeches and run workshops for clients around the world.
