Carol-Anne’s coaching style is fluid, flexible and personalized. She is a great listener, asking the pertinent and challenging questions, leveraging pragmatic frameworks and/or providing useful references. I would not call her the ‘standard’ coach: given her strong industry experience, she has a great ability to be empathic, with pull through and follow up. On top, she has a fabulous sense of humour, which makes you feel comfortable, and very quickly create a level of trust – which is critical in coaching situations.
Head of Region and board member, leading biotech
A large part of my team’s role is speaking hard truths to senior leaders. Carol-Anne’s coaching and support were instrumental in our building a strategy to get buy-in for difficult decisions. This required us to build trust and respect (and in turn to learn trust and respect) with stakeholders and peers. Carol-Anne’s coaching was instrumental in this process and led to a step change in the effectiveness of my leadership and in turn, the leadership of my team.

Carol-Anne helped me improve my ability to work with senior leaders with different drivers to my own. In a supportive way, she challenged me to analyse my own behaviours and encouraged me to discover different ways of dealing with conflict. When the circumstances for my organisation changed, she helped me downsize my organisation in a very positive manner. Positive not just for me, but more importantly also for my staff.
