Meet Carey Davidson

Carey is a world-renowned speaker, author, and founder and is an expert in making empathy a habit.  She draws on 25+ years as an HR innovator, wellness entrepreneur, and NGO leader.  Her experience, combined with her gift of quickly diagnosing the root source of complex problems, makes her a natural at dialing into the thorniest client challenges and identifying inspired and actionable solutions.

A passionate educator with skills refined over thousands of clients and students worldwide, Carey has taught for Microsoft, Tony Robbins, government agencies, SXSW,  universities, and school systems, for Fortune 500 companies and international NGOs.

Early in her career, Carey led Human Resources at Columbia University. She was the Executive Director of CARING at Columbia, a component of the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, which provides culturally sensitive prevention and intervention programs using art and music for at-risk children in New York City.

As the Founder and CEO of Tournesol Wellness in New York City, Carey designed programs that combined groundbreaking science with ancient teachings to empower people and organizations with empathy and compassion skills that maximize relationships by leveraging people’s unique interactive styles.

Her book, The Five Archetypes: Discover Your True Nature and Transform Your Life and Relationships (2020 Simon & Schuster), uncovers what motivates perpetual growth and lifelong purpose.

Carey teaches, speaks, and consults with companies across the globe and offers her Five Archetypes Immersion Retreats in person upon request.
