Why work with ME?

The 'Sherpa you need to climb your Everest'

CAroline Cameron Executive Coach Melbourne

A few years ago I was facilitating a Strategic Planning Workshop for CEO Tony, one of my Executive Coaching Clients. As I joined the coffee queue at morning tea, Tony was standing in front of me, chatting to Mark, when Mark asked him, "So, if Caroline's your Executive Coach, how does she help you?"


Tony thought for a moment and then replied, "She's the Sherpa you need to climb your Everest. She won't climb it for you but she travels alongside you -  showing you the short cuts, carrying your pack when you get tired and supporting you every step of the way - until you reach the summit." Now that sounded like a great way to describe what I do!


 If you're tired of the struggle and ready to find an easier way, I'll help you break through the challenges to successfully break through and reach the summit of your 'Everest'. - whatever that happens to be for you.

Here's what our clients say

I don’t think there was anyone in the room who remained untouched and unchanged by that experience.

I was interested to meet Caroline Cameron at a group retreat and watch her in action as she made a life-coaching presentation to us. I was extremely impressed with how she made the session so productive for everyone present, and how she put into practice the fundamentals of her craft so clearly, concisely and meaningfully. I don’t think there was anyone in the room who remained untouched and unchanged by that experience. She made everyone think about their lives, their reality and their goals, and helped us all realise how simply we could put changes incrementally in place to effect a transition from what is, to what we’d like to be. The process proved pretty inspiring for all of us there, and we all agreed that it had been an amazing experience to be a part of. I’ve had sessions since with other life coaches and often been terribly disappointed. They can become so caught up in their own experiences, jargon, sources and meaningless acronyms that the time spent with them feels utterly wasted. With Caroline, on the other hand, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her for any life, lifestyle, career or executive coaching role. I feel very fortunate to have had the benefit of her time, experience, empathy and wisdom.

Exremely positive feedback - people very much enjoyed the opportunity to reflect

Thank you for the workshop you provided yesterday as part of our planning and review day. The feedback from the team was extremely positive and people very much enjoyed the opportunity to reflect on their work in the context of past, present and future directions.

I always walked away from our sessions feeling empowered and confident.

Before I started coaching with Caroline, I wasn’t enjoying my role and could see no light at the end of the tunnel. By the time I completed the P2R Executive Career and Leadership coaching program, everything had changed! By challenging my thinking, I was able to approach seemingly insurmountable problems in a way that significantly improved my work and relationships. I was then able to make critical decisions about my career which resulted in a new and exciting leadership role. As a good listener, Caroline helped me unlock a range of options to tackle each and every career and general work enjoyment ‘blocker’ posed. I always walked away from our sessions feeling empowered and confident. Now, I am highly engaged, happy and seeing bright prospects ahead.

A source of inspiration to all who know her, well respected for her ability to relate to others even in the most trying of circumstances

It is not often that one finds people of Caroline's skills and attitude. Whilst many people fall short of delivering to their potential, Caroline has constantly amazed me with how much she can get done, yet still maintain a high degree of accuracy and quality. Her approach is pragmatic, simple and effective. She is organised and delivers on time. Yet it is not the quality of her work that is most impressive (as impressive as it is). It is her attitude and ability to cut through barriers, and corral staff, colleagues and superiors onto the same 'Page" to be able to see a common vision / solution that stands her apart from others. She has constantly strived to add value in a very difficult environment. She has always been positive, has managed to be a source of inspiration to all who know her, and is well respected for her ability to relate to others even in the most trying of circumstances. Caroline’s ability to lead, coach and mentor others has been a major contributor to making our workplace a much more pleasant and productive environment.

Professionalism, knowledge of OCM and also her industry connections became immediately obvious

Caroline was an Org Change Management consultant whilst I was recruiting for Simplot. We recruited together for a large transition project. Her professionalism, knowledge of OCM and also her industry connections became immediately obvious. This, coupled with her engaging approach, made the recruitment of a challenging to find resource a pleasure. I would recommend her for consulting around the OCM piece for any organisation serious about change.

Believed in me, kept me motivated and stretched me think and act outside of my comfort zone

The biggest change I gained from coaching has been in my thinking and approach to my role, both from top strategic perspective and day to day responsibilities. My physical and mental energy reserves are higher and I am now lot more confident in dealing with any issues.

I have developed a strong capability to deal with my unhelpful internal dialogue. I have a better awareness of how I am feeling and what actions to take in dealing with negative or unhelpful thoughts and emotions.

As my coach, Caroline:

  • Listened
  • Diagnosed and clarified the real underlying issues to uncover the goals I really wanted to achieve
  • Provided the right guidance and tools
  • Believed in me, kept me motivated and stretched me to think and act outside of my comfort zone

Pushed my thinking and dared me to explore the "what if.." rather than the "what is.."

Caroline is an extremely personable coach who has pushed my thinking and dared me to explore the "what if.." rather than the "what is.." This has helped me approach challenges as opportunities and not merely problems. Many thanks Caroline!

Leads you in setting aspirational goals and then working through how these can be achieved in a very practical way

I have been fortunate to work with Caroline for three periods of time, each related to new positions. When I gained my first acting executive position Caroline supported me in establishing myself in the role, then applying and being successfully appointed. Caroline provides a good balance of challenge and support in her coaching. She leads you in setting aspirational goals and then working through how these can be achieved in a very practical way. I didn't hesitate to re-engage Caroline when applying and moving into two further positions, as I knew that she would help me to quickly build a strong vision and plan for implementation. And apart from that, she's a great listener and helps me to keep things in perspective, including encouraging fun and balance in life! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Caroline to friends and colleagues.

Enabled me to confidently apply my own insight and experience to any situation

I was fortunate to have corporate coaching sessions with Caroline during a period of organisational change. Caroline helped me recognise my progress and enabled me to draw on my own strengths to address my goals. I was always assured that the very valuable "between" session calls (laser coaching) were never an imposition, and was able to use these sessions to clarify my decision-making processes through the most challenging moments. Caroline's innovative approach assisted me to expand my possible choices, to focus my thinking well, and to consider great alternatives. Being able to identify the “opportunities” that uncertainty can provide is a strength I gained. Caroline's expert coaching has enabled me to confidently apply my own insight and experience to any situation. She got to know me well , reflecting back at me an understanding of my situation, aspirations, goals, misgivings and limits….and then took me beyond them through our coaching sessions!

Extremely impressive ability to relate to staff, level of energy to keep them motivated and focused under stress

I have been very impressed with the level of commitment and professionalism exhibited by Caroline. Her ability to relate to staff, level of energy to keep them motivated and focused was extremely impressive especially under such stressful situations. This combined with a deep level of understanding of the organisation, the people and theory of change lead to a number of successful assignments.

Challenged me in career planning and leadership, helping me become more consciously aware of my strengths and leadership skills

Caroline has been a wonderful coach/mentor to me over the last 6 months. She has vast knowledge and experience along with an excellent array of tools. Using this knowledge and experience Caroline was able to challenge and push me in the areas of career planning and leadership along with helping me to become more consciously aware of my strengths and leadership skills. I certainly gained a lot in a short period and have no hesitation in recommending Caroline.

Life at work and home is now "easy"!

Working with Caroline has been inspirational. Through her persistence and probing questioning, results were achieved in a very short space of time. Re-organising and prioritising the areas which matter has made an enormous difference to my ability to work efficiently and proactively. Life at work and home is now "easy"! The "noise" is now under control. Caroline has made change fun and exciting although the process was challenging. Achievements are acknowledged and there is far more focus in my live. It has now been four months since our final session and the toolkit which we built together is still in place and in action. A fantastic reference tool for business and personal life. For me it has been a great result and I would certainly recommend Caroline to colleagues and friends.

I was so well supported and mentored throughout by a change management expert

When I was offered a role as a Project Officer for a major change project, it was is very different from my usual role as Nurse Coordinator. I knew it was a great opportunity but had reservations about taking on something that I didn’t have a great deal of experience in.

The one thing that tipped my decision was the offer of working with an ‘External Consultant’ who I was told would help guide me through the process. This person was Caroline Cameron who did more than ‘guide’ me through managing a project!

I cannot speak highly enough of Caroline’s approach, manner and obvious wealth of knowledge in a vast array of areas that related to not only the project but also my own professional development. Working with Caroline gave me excellent direct access to learning as well as invaluable encouragement and insight into how to put this learning into practice.

Working on the project has been a great experience for me, and I attribute the success of this experience to the fact that I was so well supported and mentored throughout by an expert in change management and many other fields which is quite rare in the health care setting!!

I found myself feeling on top of the moon after every session

Caroline exceeded all my expectations. From our first session I found her to be extremely approachable and attentive. She was dedicated and passionate about me achieving my goals and her knowledge and wisdom was ever present. Her positive and enthusiastic manner was contagious and I found myself feeling on top of the moon after every session.

She has provided me with clarity and a new focus around my future. She has changed my mindset for the better. I now have the tools to move myself past things blocking my path. I have learnt the benefit of ‘effective questioning’. I can achieve my dream job – it’s just a question of taking action. You can tell she truly loves her job.

Caroline’s coaching threw me a lifeline that I caught with both hands

From our first session, I immediately felt comfortable talking honestly and plainly with Caroline about aspects of my life that were confronting and were limiting the life I wanted to live. Opening up the hurt, fear, confusion and anger was a great relief, as was Caroline’s assurance that there was nothing about me that was “broken” that needed fixing. It was the first of many times she reminded me that within myself I already possessed everything I need for a great life. It’s tapping into that storehouse that needs a little focused attention. Understanding this was a great start.

Throughout our sessions, I was confident that Caroline was genuinely interested and involved in my personal journey and that she was on my side. Sympathetic and empathetic? Yes, Caroline is that! Vigilant and determined? Yes, I’m afraid Caroline is that too! - through regular follow ups she kept me honest and true to my affirmations.

I was elated to be able to share with Caroline the joy of achieving my goals. Even the smallest triumph served as a potent reminder for me that you do get what you focus on – and Caroline made every triumph a celebration.

Caroline’s coaching threw me a lifeline that I caught with both hands. I’m swimming under my own steam now and the harder I kick the more noise I make, the more space I take up, the bigger wake I leave behind me, and the more I revel in it.

I heartily recommend Caroline’s coaching style and approach and can vouch for the results.

An expert coach and motivational speaker who knows her stuff!

As well as being great to work with, Caroline is an expert coach and motivational speaker who knows her stuff! We engaged Caroline as the life coach for a Financial Health Retreat - to help our guests see their personal finances in a bigger life picture. The event was informal and Caroline was a critical part of creating a relaxed and engaging event.

Our guests were mainly media representatives, which suited Caroline's ability to communicate in detail while keeping an eye on the big picture - all the time being genuine and personable. She has a great ability to connect easily with people and her group sessions are highly interactive - there are no passengers in Caroline's sessions! She also provided some incredibly practical tools.

I would highly recommend Caroline to anyone who wants their event to create a positive impact, long after it is over.

Highly skilled at coaching through a variety of complex scenarios that senior executives encounter

Caroline is a life-changing executive coach. She has challenged me to think more laterally about my career through in-depth identification of my skill set and potential. She is highly skilled at coaching through a variety of complex scenarios that senior executives encounter. Be prepared to be challenged, step well outside of your comfort zone and to learn not to settle for anything less than what you are truly capable of.

Found new motivation, clear purpose and direction, increased productivity and relaxation

I was a coaching client of Caroline's and used the tools and strategies she provided to find new motivation, clear purpose and direction, and increased productivity and relaxation. The Great Life Redesign delivered all that was promised...and more. Caroline really provided a program to suit my needs and through the process supported me to make important changes to my belief patterns, daily structure, time management systems, decision making and an overall "game plan" for life - both professionally and personally. The strategies have not only helped to achieve my initial goals, but provided skills to take me forward into the future. This program provides an excellent "ROI" and I would recommend it to anyone wishing to take the next step in creating the life they want to lead.
