"Coaching sessions with Carole are a mental work out – challenging and a massively fulfilling experience in equal measure. The course of 12 sessions had a truly profound impact on my career path and personal life, in ways I would never have predicted. What sets Carole apart is her engaging style, a way of questioning that guides you to reach your own conclusions and an infectiously positive approach. Each session brings clarity and leaves you with an energy for change. I particularly appreciated Carole’s flexibility in scheduling sessions to suit my personal situation – this, in turn, enabled the outcome of the engagement to be substantially more valuable."
A Change In Mindset About How I Communicate – Senior Executive – Hong Kong
"Carole really helped me change my mind-set about how I communicate in different situations. I gained numerous insights into the way I interact with others and we generated some simple action steps that I knew I could and did take and that have really made a difference. She is very professional, reassuring, supportive but gently stretching and is great at following up on points discussed previously, or points just mentioned in passing, to check on progress / relevance / readiness to discuss in more depth. I found that really helpful."
A Different Perspective on Communication – TM Entreprenuer Hong Kong
Before I met Carole, I used to think communication is just a way to pass information from one person to another. Now I see that communication is multidimensional. It is also a reflection of yourself. I learned a lot from Carole in this short time span, more than what I could have accomplished at my own pace. This has helped me grow personally and professionally and has been a valuable experience.

Transformational Training – Karey Pohn – PHD
"What an absolutely wonderful training it was. I can't thank you enough for your knowledge, grace and for making it fun and keeping things going. You are a great role model as a coach and that you really gave our cohort a firm foundation that has stood us in good stead throughout the training. In short, all of the things that we learned in the training, you provided a living example of. Transformation happens when the conditions are correct, and you helped to model that for me."
