Erica Naccarato is a management consultant, coach, and former varsity athlete currently specializing in assisting her clients with building and leading high-performing teams. With a Master’s degree in Industrial Organizational Psychology, Erica is motivated to understand what drives effectiveness and alignment in professional teams, and how to sustain these aspects through authentic, empathetic leadership. After playing volleyball at the competitive and varsity level for twelve years, and then moving on to becoming a high-level coach, Erica became fascinated with understanding human complexity and how it relates to team dynamic. Upon graduating with her Master’s degree, Erica has spent her entire career working with C-Suite level executives, helping them understand how their inherent personality traits, behaviours, and values inform team culture and inspire their team members to achieve organizational goals. Erica has worked with clients of all sizes, industries, and sectors, including mental health agencies, publicly-traded companies, and non-profit organizations. Outside of working hours, Erica spends her time volunteering with the Ontario Volleyball Association and various volleyball clubs. She is passionate about motivating youth female leadership, and is currently in her second year of leading Coachettes, a program she developed that empowers and inspires 15-18U female athletes to become coaches. In her free time, Erica can probably be found on a patio in Toronto somewhere with her girlfriends!
