Can Crabwalk work for you?


I want my job to be less overwhelming

You’re working with limited resources and it takes so much time to get things done. You wish you had an army to help you, but even the thought can feel overwhelming. So you just put your head down and work. But that’s not going to last. We can help you build up your skillsets so you do more with less and have peace of mind as you do it.

I want to move up within my organization

You’re highly ambitious and curious. You love being challenged and learning new things. You feel more peace of mind when you know what you’re working towards. BUT, things aren’t totally clear right now. And it feels at teams incredibly frustrating, and isolating. You’d love to have clarity but don’t know how to get there. We can help.

I’m facing a career transition

Maybe things have been changing around you. Or you’re in a perfectly stable place but just feeling pretty unfulfilled and unsure of what to do next. Either way, Crabwalk can help build the right mindset and tools to get over this hump and find work you love.


Our Team

Laura Castaing and Carly Chase have been using the Crabwalk Methodologies for their entire working lives (30+ years in total). It’s how they earned roles and promotions everywhere from Goldman Sachs, MIT, the City of New York, and multiple top tech startups. Now it is the core of their own business.

The Crabwalk Method has been taught to students at MIT, Kellogg and Duke, and to professionals at JP Morgan, Google, and IBM. Laura and Carly have also taught this framework to a number of entrepreneurs backed by Y Combinator, Techstars and top tier venture firms.


Laura Castaing

Laura’s career path started in Engineering at Duke and led to 14+ years experience building startup businesses in senior operation roles across real estate, e-commerce, government, office management, and dating services. She now coaches successful entrepreneurs and professionals looking to create work that is fulfilling and gives them a lifestyle they love.


Carly Chase

Carly’s career has spanned stints at big institutions like Goldman Sachs, The City of New York under Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and MIT, in addition to numerous NYC based startups. Currently, she works at the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship where she runs programs, and coaches students across campus to be effective entrepreneurs. She is also a Lecturer at the MIT Sloan School of Management.


It’s such a comfort to find support and to know that you are not alone in this journey. When the program finished, I was happy to walk away with a clear mind and goal. In fact, I’ve achieved far more that I thought.
