What do people say?

“Carol was not just someone to talk to about my dreams, she was the right person to guide me towards achieving my purpose in life. Her approach allowed me to see the value in the process and find a real path to my goals. The following words give a glimpse into my experience with Carol…thoughtful, challenging and completely engaged.”
Anita Kriek-Fagan, Global Head of Talent Operations, MZ

“Carol will ask tough questions and will challenge you to think differently but without fail I have left every single one of our conversations with a smile on my face feeling energized and excited about my goals. She is absolutely FABULOUS.”
Sabrina D, Business Analyst, Shared Services

“Coach, consultant, mentor and collaborator extraordinaire! Carol brings unbounded enthusiasm and experience to all aspects of her interactions with the individuals and teams she supports. She is a great practitioner of ‘keeping the end in mind’. She works with purpose and integrity, and has been crucial to the success of our organization.”
Tom G, Director, Global Business Operations

“Working with Carol was very easy from the start. Her guidance was always delivered with great ease and respect and understanding of where I was at. We discussed goals and desired career state and things that would make me happy at work. Carol helped me look at things in a different way than I knew … encouraged me to look at work from a different angle.  Her strategic outlook continues to be influential to me with my work today. She is also extremely FUN to work with. I’m not sure where I would be today without her guidance.”
Jean W, World Wide Program Manager, Human Resources

“Carol has a natural way of spreading positivity and motivating anyone who she works with. She was organized, communicative, consistent, and always present. Carol was deeply invested in my success and made it her mission to help me achieve my goals (which I did) and celebrate my boosted self-confidence!”
Sarah S, Manager, Worldwide Recruiting Operations

“Carol provides a very safe and supportive environment in which deep and meaningful conversations take place. She is also a very genuine person who thinks about the best ways of helping people. She certainly helped me arrive at a number of key decisions by inspiring me to see a broader perspective.”
Robert B, Principle Strategist, Federal Government

“Despite the muddled mess in my head, Carol always managed to get me thinking clearly and focused on the next steps. She’s upbeat and energetic yet thoughtful and empathetic. I felt very safe discussing deeper issues with her – like tackling my fear around my next career step.”
Oliver W, PMO Leader, IT
