Testimonials

I have recently started coaching sessions with Carol and I highly recommend her. In fact, I’ve already provided her details to several other professionals wanting some extra support, guidance and coaching. 

Carol is thoughtful and probes to get to the core of my challenges. She is able to cut through the clutter and noise of an issue to get to the root of it, help dissect it and then work through solutions and strategies.

Her approach is calm and warm, but she still pushes me outside my comfort zone to ensure I get the most out of my sessions.

I leave each session with new strategies to try to navigate challenging situations. I can say that every session has resulted in a new strategy that has worked and helped me achieve the outcomes I was after.

Many thanks for the great coaching moments. Carol has been able to engage me effectively with provoking questions that truly simulate my strategic thinking process for better personal reflections and business solutions.

Carol has been a great listener and coach in helping me to navigate a very traditional business set up through insightful conversations to continue developing my strategic thinking and influencing skills with the stakeholders.

It has been a pleasure working with Carol especially on my personal rebranding. She helps to bring clarity to the thoughts and ideas that I’m exploring. Her way of coaching is through asking relevant questions and helping you to think deeper, beyond the surface.

Her many years of experience in corporate positions and her experience in coaching leaders is such a powerful combination for the value that she can provide. She is like a trusted, wise friend that you can easily talk to during the coaching sessions. Thank you Carol!

Dinah Low

Thank you so much Carol for your time and coaching sessions that nudged me to look deeper into the “what if” scenarios planning. You bring forth diversity of thinking, ability to listen with understanding and so wise in asking spot on probing questions…. thus, provided me with the clarity on what matters most to get to a much better proposition.

Hope you continue to reach and benefit more leaders esp female leaders to reach to their highest potential. You Rock!

Jenny Chew

It was a pleasure to have Carol’s coaching support. She brought me a new awareness and clarity I needed during the time I was quite lost.

She illuminated my limiting beliefs and fears; encouraging myself and offering me a different perspective about my “confused thoughts” during the time we were doing the sessions. Ensuring I’ll commit with my own self-care and life projects.

Thank you Carol for your time and wise direction.

Renata DillonSupply Chain Coordinator , Merck Group

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.

Melissa Roberts

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.

Lionel Ch’ng

Carol is wonderful! She has helped me organise my thoughts, buried under detail, by asking me probing and thoughtful questions.

Through our explorations of what has worked and what hasn’t during my career, I have the confidence to express what I can offer an organisation.

I continue to work with Carol as I step up into leadership roles.

Anna Figueiredo

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!

Eric Balinghasay

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.

Kellie Mayne

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.

Kylie D’Costa

Carol Yang gets my highest recommendation as a leadership coach. Her method has had such an amazing impact on how I see myself as a leader. The process Carol used helped me gain new self-awareness and greater confidence in my ability to lead a team. She coached me to develop and own my own unique brand of leadership, which has resulted in increased positive perceptions and respect from my team.

I am thrilled with the journey that Carol took me on and the great transformation that occurred. I am now a better leader and for that, I will be forever grateful. Thanks Carol for your guidance and support. 

Helen Rankin

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!

Misty de Vries

I am a firm believer that people cross your path for a reason and being introduced to Carol was like a life line for me.

Carol was a real sounding board with no judgement that really made me think about what was important in my life and how with balance and focus you can achieve anything you set your mind to.

I have had my confidence reinvigorated and I am so excited about the new journey I am about to begin.

If you are at a career cross roads, wondering where your next challenge lies I can highly recommend working with Carol, her unique ability to push but not take over your journey is immensely empowering.

Kirstie Smith

I was about to move to Singapore and start a new role managing multi cultural teams across South East Asia and Carol had spent her career doing exactly this. Carol supported me before my move, mentoring me and offering advice and guidance on the journey I was about to commence.

I left Australia feeling prepared, motivated, excited and ready for my next step and Carol really played a significant part in this. I can’t thank her enough!

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.

Joni Ferrier

Carol was extremely clear-headed and immensely helpful in giving direction without imposing; she was super patient with me even as I went around in circles at times; and more importantly she really helped me to see what the true issues were, and equipped me with the skills to address them one by one. I liked that she was very structured in her approach so that I never felt we missed anything out, and I liked that she always closed the loop so it always felt like an achievement in itself. Best of all, Carol is such a caring person, I really felt like a friend was guiding me rather than just a professional relationship.

I am more confident. I know what I want in my career and I’m well on track to achieving it. I highly recommend Carol to anyone who ever felt lost or just needed a mentor. It will be the best thing you ever did for yourself.

Selina Thng

When I first started with Carol, I knew I needed some clarity about my career direction. That’s where Carol came in. I am a completely different person now. Where previously I was clueless about what I wanted to do and always worried about how others judged, today: I am more confident and hold myself true to my values and principles. I know what I want in my career, and I’m well on track to achieving it. This could not have been possible without encountering Carol. I highly recommend Carol to anyone who ever felt lost or just needed a mentor. It will be the best thing you ever did for yourself.

I approached Carol when I found myself thinking there must be more to life. I’d been running two businesses for four years but it felt like they’d been running me for at least the past two – and well into the ground, at that. I’d suddenly realised how dissatisfied I was with my life and I didn’t know how to fix it. Over the course of six sessions, Carol helped me clearly identify my values, the barriers that were hindering my progress and happiness, and how I could start taking control of my life again, rather than the other way around. Working with Carol was always uplifting and fun, even when she challenged me to really think beyond how I would normally! The result has been feeling clearer and more confident about the direction that I need to spring forward to next. Thanks Carol!

For the first time I know my values, thank you Carol, this will allow me to have clarity of my goals and what I want to do

Jeanette

Thanks for a thought-provoking and professional seminar.  You have certainly opened my eyes and given me some clarity, ideas …. and much to think about going forward.  I enjoyed your engaging style.  The opportunity to learn more at future seminars is intriguing

Leanne

Carol is authentic, practical and receptive.  Her guidance is just as useful for a person who has started thinking about their life purpose as it is for someone who is living their purpose but may want to give themselves permission to pause and reflect for a moment
