Hi, I’m Carol, an (ICF) Certified Coach whose mission is to help leaders access their “leader within” and step into their personal and professional power.
I believe that an increase in ‘self’ and ‘other’ awareness allows us to leverage the skills and talents we bring to our teams and our lives. This also enables us to communicate in ways that ‘connect’ and spark higher-level brain activity, such as empathy, trust, creativity and strategic thinking.
By increasing our Mental Fitness we become the masters of our minds and have the ability to navigate life’s challenges with positivity, ease and flow.
Throughout my 25-year career, I’ve been fascinated with women in leadership, helping them to become the leaders they aspire to be, even in the face of the beliefs they have been holding, that really stem from the outdated traditional bias held against women and girls that persists today.
I use a coaching model that embraces the experiential so that participants can easily contextualize and apply the learnings immediately.

Testimonials of 1-1 Coaching
– Corinne Johnston, Director, Strategic Planning and Institutional Analysis
Before being coached by Carol I was experiencing doubt about my chosen career path. I was feeling ‘pigeon-holed’ and couldn’t see opportunities. Our coaching helped me see how much I loved my profession and gain the confidence to move to a more senior position and take on leadership roles that have now opened more doors for me on my career journey.

Testimonials of Organizations
The process Carol used, together with her coaching skills, resulted in each individual team member learning about the qualities they brought to the table as well as understanding and appreciating the different styles that we each possessed. It was a real “ah-ha” moment for us around why some of us were feeling out-of-sync with the new team. What was really powerful was leaving with concrete tools to help us communicate with each other in a way that met each other’s needs.
The team is now a cohesive, high-performing unit. We communicate openly and support each other in any way we can. The “atmosphere” of the office has gone from tense and quiet to open, interactive and highly-productive.
Thanks again Carol for all your leadership, listening and support.
– G.A. Executive Assistant to Vice President, Georgian College
We have also used Carol as a one-on-one coach with newly promoted managers, to help them gain the confidence and leadership skills so that they could “hit the road running”. This one on one coaching program for our new hires has been a great success!

Carol was able to uncover some underlying issues that were getting in our way of being as effective as we could be. So some of the areas that we concentrated on were;
- Establishing high trust
- Making sure we don’t have “silo’s”
- Controlling emotions
- Effective Communicating
- “Playing for the front of the shirt”
Her work was so immediately effective that we now have a standing quarterly visit from Carol in order to help us to continue to build and keep the kind of teams and culture our organization wants and needs.
Our sessions with Carol are always engaging, fun and most of all practical. We always leave invigorated by what we have learned and experimented with in the sessions. But most of all we have strategies to try out and implement immediately.
The safety Carol creates for us in these sessions allows us all to feel comfortable working through our issues together. We focus on increasing our own self-awareness and taking responsibility for our own behavioural choices. We now look at each other with understanding and empathy, making it possible for us all to feel included and valued for the contributions we make. We are better at honouring our commitments, to ourselves and to each other, as to how we will behave in order to create the culture we want and need.
I can honestly say that over the past 3 years our team dynamics have changed for the better. We are using the strategies we have learned to communicate in healthy transparent ways, which in turn enables us to collaborate more effectively and achieve the kinds of goals and results we have committed to as an executive team and organization. As well, each member of the team is able to use their “new tools” to increase trust, accountability, and overall performance within their own respective teams.
