BARRISTER, VICTORIAN BAR, AUSTRALIA
I recently needed Carolyn's expertise when dealing with a difficult professional problem. Not having had any previous exposure to her field of expertise I was pretty guarded in my expectations. However, I found her to be personally engaging and an excellent communicator. She was immediately across the situation and her analysis was spot on. Her solutions were insightful, practical and effective. I recommend her highly.
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, GALLAGHER
Carolyn came highly recommended from a colleague. She taught me self-mastery, particularly when I had the opportunity to sell my successful business. She guided me through that challenging process and played a part in a terrific outcome. Prior to seeing her, I felt like life was too busy and full of stresses, with little to no time for myself. Now my life is in balance, I'm happier, more settled and a lot calmer when facing difficult business and personal issues. I highly recommend Carolyn. She is very different from other professionals I'd seen. She brings fun, is straight-talking and offers a no-nonsense approach. She helped me change for the better.
GENERAL MANAGER, TARGUS ANZ
I can't speak more highly of Carolyn and the work we did together on my professional development. Our CEO was in the audience when Carolyn was a guest speaker. She felt we would be a good fit and her instincts were spot on. Carolyn's approach of moving you from good to great, by way of deeply understanding yourself and how to maximise your potential for the greatest impact, was remarkable and very appreciated. She has helped me know and develop the true qualities of best-in-class leadership. I have been able to look at problems in different ways and find more meaningful, lasting, solutions. I am a better leader today because of Carolyn. I should say that the work also had a significant and positive impact on other aspects of my life.
VETERINARY CARDIOLOGIST & AUTHOR, HOLTER UK
I have had development support from Carolyn in 2014 and again in 2018. Our work together has had a profound, positive and lasting effect. Carolyn is amazing to work with - the sessions were intense and I needed to work hard, but the outcomes were immensely beneficial in all aspects of my life. I have a far greater understanding of myself and of those around me. Carolyn doesn't shy away from the tough stuff, but she does so with great skill, humour and the kindness of someone who cares. She helped me see my blind spots and supported me through the fears and misconceptions that were holding me back. Life is short, we only get one go at it, I realise we all need to make it count by being all we can be. If you work with Carolyn, you'll be in with a great chance that you will.
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, RACS
As a human being and a leader I was spent when I started working with Carolyn. We met when she was speaking in Sydney at the Non-Profit Alliance. As Executive Director I had weathered many storms, but a particularly toxic period at work had really challenged my ability to lead the organisation. I felt traumatised and my confidence was shattered. Over six sessions, we unravelled the situation and found a way through. Carolyn is forthright, funny and fearless. She took me on a journey of self-discovery that has taken me back to running an award-winning organisation that is making a huge difference in people's lives. Carolyn is inspirational and life-changing. I am a better, more confident and able leader thanks to her. She was my guide on the scary journey of self-discovery. She showed me that being vulnerable allows you to become powerful. I have found my self-worth, my self-belief and my happiness thanks to her.
MANAGING DIRECTOR, WRD
I met Carolyn when she was guest speaker at a Women in Property event. That was six years ago and since then she's been my Go-To guide whenever I've felt stuck, challenged or ready to grow. That early encounter changed my life. If you'd known me back then, you wouldn't recognise me now.
Just six sessions with Carolyn changed my way of thinking, my approach to life and how I looked. It was one of the wisest investments I ever made. The impact of our work together has been profound and lasting. Carolyn helped me shift my lens and learn to be curious about whether my responses and the stories I tell myself are sound. She helped me understand my triggers and discover how to find a much easier way through challenges. My relationships are stronger and my decision-making better. Life is far less stressful than it used to be, and it's no exaggeration to say my professional career and personal life both took off.
I became the first female Managing Director at my engineering firm and met the man of my dreams. Today I'm regarded as a serious female figure in the engineering field and am on track to a leadership role. To top it all off, I'm now very happily married. Life is good and I credit the work I did with Carolyn as the turning point in achieving the success and fulfilment I now enjoy.
CEO, HEART RESEARCH AUSTRALIA
If you need someone to wake up an audience Carolyn is a stand-out speaker with memorable insights. She is also a skilled Team Psychologist who helped me with a staff restructure and in connecting a new team. I would highly recommend her for team change and development work. During a change process, we were mindful of the needs of our people. The Enneagram profiling and development tool underpinned our work, fast-tracking personal understanding, group dynamics and improved communication.
NATIONAL MANAGER, M2
I first met Carolyn while attending a leadership course and 'wow!' what a joy and supportive experience that was. Carolyn is so in touch with how you should conduct yourself and how to bring your strengths and limitations together to become a better person, professionally and personally.
With Carolyn, I truly believe that anything in the world of leadership is possible.
SENIOR CONSULTANT, MARTS & LUNDY
Carolyn was the inspirational keynote speaker at the annual Educate Plus conference. She was warm, humorous, insightful and witty, cutting through theory to give us all ways of understanding ourselves and how to better relate to others.
Carolyn would be a wonderful person in a workplace coaching or mentoring individuals and teams to help them realise their potential. Wonderful!
PEOPLE ADVISORY SERVICES LEADER, ERNST & YOUNG
'Wow' is the only way to describe Carolyn. She ran a 'good to great' workshop for our Women's Network and the feedback was exceptional. Carolyn puts everyone at ease and her energy, fun and passion is infectious. We tackled tough subjects constructively.
I cannot recommend Carolyn highly enough. We will have her back!
Partner, MorrrisBrown Communications
Working with Carolyn has been the single most valuable learning experience of my professional life. It would be impossible to over-state the impact that our work had on me, or how widespread the rewards have been. I found the benefits and the changes extended well beyond my professional life. Our work fundamentally reshaped my understanding of myself, my strengths, my value, and my values. It also changed for the better, how I interact with those around me, particularly in challenging situations.
While Carolyn draws from a huge range of disciplines, working through the Enneagram was a particularly eye-opening exercise that I continue to use to this day. The power of this tool, and Carolyn’s unique ability to bring it to life and help you understand it fully is invaluable. I could not recommend working with Carolyn more.
General Manager, Corporate Development, Australia Post
“My experience working with Carolyn has been truly transformational, from both a professional and personal perspective. I absolutely love how Carolyn leveraged her deep expertise from a variety of disciplines, her experience working with senior leaders and teams across the globe and used highly effective tools (such as the Enneagram) to tailor an intensive program that was instrumental in achieving my leadership development goals. I would highly recommend working with Carolyn!
