Coaching

I contacted Carol when the company I founded underwent major restructuring to achieve the next level of growth. With her clarity to cut through to the key issues and her straight forward, fair and inclusive manner of facilitating solutions, she actively helped us achieve our objectives. In particular I appreciated her excellence in making sense of the stages we were going through as a company and the steps that were around the corner, so that I felt empowered to take the appropriate decisions. Change is sometimes taxing and Carol was 100% present, professional and committed in seeing me through this phase. Personally, I found her unwavering, warm and prompt coaching support inspirational and a breath of fresh air.

Carol worked alongside me to create a plan to help me achieve my objectives as Chief Executive. We identified skills and tools I could develop to assist me in working towards the organisations strategic goals, and identified areas for personal development to support me in this work. Through asking astute questions and providing keen observations, Carol assisted me to work through complex issues. My organisation successfully navigated some tricky terrain during the time I worked with Carol, and I thank her for the significant contribution she made.

Carol has worked with me over the past couple of years as my executive coach. I have found her coaching techniques and style to be exactly what I have needed to challenge me. She facilitated the realization that I do have the capacity to grow as an individual and also to develop and grow the organization which I lead. I know I would not be where I am today – major organizational growth and sustainability if I hadn’t had the time and space to reflect on my practice and move forward.

Facilitation

THANK YOU, so so much for Saturday. The day and the outcomes were both so much better than I had thought mostly due to your energy and focus and ability to get the best succinctly out of everyone.
Thanks also for your expert facilitation – you helped us achieve significantly more than we have ever achieved before in our planning days. While there are other factors that made this possible, I think the key difference was your outstanding facilitation. You kept us focused, were amazingly affirming, and you reflected back an image of what we could be that has shifted our thinking about who we are as an organisation.

It was a great weekend. Thank you for guiding, challenging, clarifying and stretching us towards some ‘robust’ discussions, solid outcomes and a magnificent mission!!
I have received a great deal of feedback from those that attended the workshop. They were all very complementary on the effectiveness of your facilitation throughout the day.
Thanks so much for working with us on the Strategic planning day … we have come away invigorated. I have all the flip charts so appreciate it. Everyone has commented on how great you facilitated the group.
I do want to pass on to you, the very positive comments I have received about the day. Everyone, staff and trustees included felt it was a Saturday well worth spending and we couldn’t have had a better facilitator for us and our organisation. You kept us on ‘track’ which isn’t always easy with a big group and kept us engaged in the process with enthusiasm and it was fun! I believe we felt everyone had been listened to and had valid input.
