As an external coach and trainer, I’ve spent the past fifteen years or so supporting leaders to communicate more effectively. In doing this I’ve noticed common challenges that leaders face in consiste...
The next version of me – Brian Grainger – Live More Life Coaching
"I loved working with Carole! She created a safe space for me to reveal a hidden unhelpful habit. I had been attaching great weight and meaning to every little decision in my life and this was holding me back in my personal life and in my business. After working with Carole, I've changed perspective and have been releasing the perfectionism and the need to "get it right" ahead of time. I’m now testing, taking risks allowing myself to move (even fail) forward. Thank you Carole, for helping me get clear on my goals, for really listening deeply and for your insightful observations. I'm becoming the next version of me." Brian Grainger, Live More Life Coaching
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."
When Carole coaches she is with you 200% – Yvonne Yum – Human Resources Leader, Hong Kong
"When Carole coaches she is with you 200%! She created a safe space for me to share and be really honest with myself. She listened, observed and helped me understand underlying issues. I learned useful techniques, but also that communicating well is a lot about what is going on mentally and physically.
I’ve become more self-aware, I’m better at organising my thoughts about what I want to say, and feel more confident going into meetings knowing I’m on the right track and can speak confidently."
An extremely positive impact across multiple aspects – Jo Hayes – CEO, Habitat for Humanity Hong Kong
"Working with Carole has had an extremely positive impact across multiple aspects of my professional journey, including building my confidence, enabling me to think and act differently, and honing my leadership skills. To stay agile during the crisis, I have had to make swift and sometimes difficult decisions and thanks to Carole’s coaching, I have been better equipped to lead the team through an extraordinarily challenging time."
My thinking partner – Mary Puentespina – Special Needs Facilitator, The Nesbitt Centre, Hong Kong
"If it hadn’t been for Carole’s coaching, I would have probably quit the role I had just been promoted to. I was doubting my abilities, and questioning whether I really deserved it.
I loved having Carole as ‘my thinking partner’. I never felt judged and she helped me become more aware of negative internal conversations. I learned practical tools that helped me become more effective in my role and in life as a whole.
It was great to get out of the office to do walk and talk sessions at the Hong Kong Harbour front! The space to move helped me think, breathe and be true to myself.
Overall, I gained a huge amount of confidence. I stopped doubting myself and learned to accept what I couldn’t change. Importantly, I also learned self-compassion, which I believe literally saved me in terms of my health and well-being. It also paved the way for countless opportunities of personal and professional growth."
Best investment I have ever made – Ying B – Product Manager Hong Kong
"I think this is by far one of the best investments I have ever made. Carole guides me to think about the situations in a new perspective, find out the root cause, and help me find the solutions by myself. Carole gave me the support, guidance, tools and feedback, which is exactly what I need from a coach. I was in one of the toughest situations in my professional life, and without Carole’s help, I could not have managed it well and grow both professionally and personally from that experience."
An increase in executive presence – Marianne Johnson, VP/Regional Manager, Human Resources
"Through my coaching with Carole I was able to lift my executive presence, gain the confidence required to make challenging decisions and become a better leader. The logical and effective frameworks Carole introduced in the coaching easily transferred into my everyday life. Carole’s warm and personal style and inspired me. I cant recommend Carole highly enough to those looking to be inspired to make change."
