Testimonials

Carol has been instrumental in helping me navigate a new position within a new industry. Her guidance and insight has really helped me go from feeling that I was in over my head to being grounded and confident in my skills. 

Carol has such a calming, caring manner, but she pushes me outside my comfort zone every session. I leave every session with more confidence and clarity and new skills to try during the week. 

The best gift Carol has given to me during our sessions is to not listen to the voice in my head that was telling me I wasn’t good enough. I will be forever grateful for Carol’s guidance.

Thank you very much Carol for your time and guidance during our coaching sessions and discussions. I appreciate your patience, wisdom and support.

The biggest gain was in the structured thinking in terms of options available to me which were previously unclear – thanks for helping me uncover them and to decide on which path to choose.

I found our sessions to be insightful, productive and time well spent.

Anna FigueiredoScientist, Business Development

Carol’s coaching helped me a lot when I was faced with some career and job-related questions.

I highly valued her probing statements; challenges to look for other options and angles to a particular situation; while being a great listener who helped me work thru my questions in a solution-oriented manner.

She also helped me assess whether my solutions were those I was truly comfortable; and authentic to my self. Thanks Carol!

Carol has been instrumental in helping me find clarity, not only for my career but also in better understanding my values and life purpose. Carol has an amazing ability to quickly cut through my excuses and fears holding me back from living my best life, and showed so much empathy and understanding as I worked through these.

I know I now have a clear roadmap for my future, but also the tools and mindset to deal with any life issues or new opportunities that may come my way.

I’d highly recommend Carol if you’re looking for an executive coach.

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Carol. She is inspired, curious and pushed me far outside my comfort zone.

Carol challenged me – she wasn’t afraid to ask the tough questions, and I am incredibly grateful that she did. Carol helped me start to get clear about what values I hold most dear and the impact these would have on my leadership style and execution. I particularly enjoyed the leadership stories exercise and found this very useful.

Thank you Carol – thank you for your generosity, curiosity, ‘gentle reminders’ and for pushing me to be the best leader I can be.

I would highly recommend Carol if you are looking to really harness your leadership capability.

Helen RankinRegulatory Affairs Manager, Endeavour Consumer Health

Carol is a gifted coach – we worked together through a period of incredible personal and professional change as I began to look towards a new chapter in my development. 

Carol’s guidance helped frame my personal brand, position me for new opportunities and together we charted my goals over different time horizons. It took time, equal amounts of encouraging and challenging from her, a lot of deep soul searching from me but together we broke down my big dreams into manageable and achievable steps. 

Where I was hesitant, she both encouraged and nudged me forward. Where I struggled to articulate inner thoughts and ideas, Carol’s gift as coach shone. She gave me words and helped me find the courage to voice ideas that I was too afraid to…and this has resulted in greater freedom to own who I am. 

Thanks to Carol’s coaching, I have clarity, focus and am actively pursuing my dreams. My confidence has increased and I have such a sense of excitement about the future!

Kirstie SmithHead of Marketing, Cisco

As a result of working with Carol, I am now more confident in my leadership, more comfortable with my work/life choices; and have reinvigorated my overall energy and self belief.

Within a very short time, Carol helped me resolve inner conflicts regarding my career goals that I’ve been struggling with for a long time. Not only am I now clearer about my short and long term goals, I know how they fit within my broader priorities of family and life; and no longer feel guilty about the trade offs I’m making. I know what energises me at work which helps me set better boundaries on what to focus on, and I have an action plan to achieve my career goals.

We worked on many different areas ranging from career planning to building confidence and self belief. Throughout our discussions, Carol listened well; providing enough guidance to allow me to find my own answers. But she was also not afraid to challenge me with tough questions when needed which enabled me to get some big breakthroughs. I have gained tremendous value from working with Carol and I would highly recommend her.
