Carol’s coaching is underpinned by the knowledge that trust, the foundation of healthy relationships and cultures, is the precursor of clear, concise and compelling communication which in turn drives success in organizations. Using Conversational Intelligenceâ and the latest brain neuroscience, Carol helps her clients understand which conversations spark our higher-level brain activity such as trust, integrity, strategic thinking and empathy. This in turn fosters an inclusive, aligned culture that welcomes and encourages ongoing feedback and conversations – even when they may be difficult or uncomfortable.
Carol uses an experiential coaching model with individuals and with teams. This helps clients develop and live in a mindset that embraces experimentation and risk-taking, the necessary elements of innovation and creativity. Carol works with her clients to become the best version of themselves, as individual contributors, as leaders and as team members.
Carol has coached in both the public and private sector. Her clients include many colleges in both the Ontario Public and Private College System, as well as in various departments in both the Federal and Provincial Government as well as several Technology firms and start-ups.
