Our Success Stories

Coaching and Mentoring Testimonials

I work with diverse, seasoned, thoughtful professionals who are committed to creating deep and lasting change for themselves or their organizations. They desire a roadmap for their own journey ahead, through known and unknown transition and transformation cultivating approaches that are elegant, resilient and authentic. They are keen to work hard and the money they spend needs to be a smart investment in today and the future.

“I wanted to thank you for the advice about public speaking which you provided at my coaching session last month. I was well prepared, asked all the organizers all questions you suggested up front, took the time to physically prepare myself before speaking and then left my anxiety on the chair beside me when I started speaking. The TED talk on vulnerability really was an eye opener for me and made me think about why I fear public speaking. I’m working on it and will continue working on it until the fear is gone. I received an email today from my Assistant Deputy Minister. I can’t tell you how rewarding it felt to know all my hard work had really paid off. I wanted to share what happened with you as you helped me be successful.”

“I have thought of you often and how much you helped us. In particular, you were the first to identify that creating something in one place may not be the right fit in another, and how hindsight is 20-20. We decided to go out on our own and start a small business. It is going well and we’ve had some really great collaborations, including the Canadian Museum of Immigration. Many many thanks for investing your time and cheerleading in us - your support has certainly led us to where we are now.”

Jennifer LaFontaine, Community Story Strategies

“I wanted to tell you what a magnificent job you did providing my client with his assessment results during the debrief call. The ease with which you articulated subtleties was magnificent. The connections between the dimensions brought depth and insight. You’re a Pro!”

“Carol was excellent. She has the ability to make you feel comfortable and to be open and transparent without any judgment. She also has a knack for holding you accountable for your actions and getting you to recognize options to make things better. She is an excellent coach.”

Manager, Ontario Public Service

“Working through my tough obstacles with Carol is like a breath of cool fresh air on a hot day. She asks insightful questions that lead me to the solutions, that lead me to the “aha” moments, and questions that with quiet reflection reveal underlying issues. Thank you Carol for giving me the greatest gift – the courage to believe in myself.”

Patrice Donalds, MBA Grand Cayman

“I didn’t quit. Not that today was better, I just felt better about it. Thanks to you! You are the personal truth guru!”

Professional Events Organizer, Toronto

"Working with Carol was a transformative experience. She skillfully guided me to reframe a major obstacle, encouraging me to delve deeper than I ever would have on my own. The process not only uncovered new insights but also shaped a development plan that was unexpected and empowering. Carol's guidance stretched beyond immediate goals, creating a catalyst for long-term growth that I hadn't envisioned before our time together. The impact has been profound."

Chelsea Barnett, Fellow, DiverseCity, CivicAction

“Always appreciate your insight and perspective. You are incredibly talented at helping to pull threads and bring focus to what is often (always?) a lot of balls in the air. It is an absolute pleasure to be coached by you.”

VP Sales and Marketing, Wealth Management
