Testimonials

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!
