Why work with ME?
The 'Sherpa you need to climb your Everest'
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.

Caroline was a real revelation for me. She was referred to me at a crucial point in my career and helped me unlock a more productive and insightful working style. I would highly recommend Caroline for anyone looking for truthful and purposeful executive coaching.
Our people were empowered and the capacity of the organization strengthened.
As Chief Executive Officer of a large welfare organization I invited Caroline Cameron and P2R to assist the organization on numerous occasions. In every case, whether it was working with staff to vision new service delivery models, or prepare competitive tenders Caroline helped the organization achieve its vision. Caroline worked with staff every step of the way, new models of care were developed and implemented. Strategic goals and a process for measuring outcomes and results were set. As a result of Caroline’s work our people were empowered and the capacity of the organization strengthened. Caroline kept people on track and ensured that they had the skills, knowledge and resources to achieve success.
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.
Energising, Inspirational - most engaging Board Strategic Planning process
My experience of working with you has been energising and inspirational. The strategic planning process with the Board was the most engaging that I have been involved in thus far. You seemed to be able to keep the ideas flowing, and to adapt the process according to the information exchange as it was happening. You worked with teams through all levels of the organisation to not only focus on our core business, but to do some magical thinking about the future and where it could take us.
Ensured that the planning day achieved real outcomes and a pathway for success
AMS engaged Caroline as a facilitator for a strategic planning day. Our current strategic plan was outdated and unused and we wanted something fresh and motivating. Caroline gave us a structure and template for the day which helped us to synthesise and document ideas for real change. Caroline also provided us with tools and follow up to ensure that the planning day achieved real outcomes and a pathway for success. Caroline's warm and engaging manner also helped to make the process effortless. I have no hesitation in recommending Caroline for facilitating strategic planning and happy to answer any queries you may have.
Helped me find ways to open doors where all I had seen were walls
Through her probing style, Caroline helped me find ways to open doors where all I had seen were walls. Within a short period of time, she helped me change some of the ways I dealt with business challenges I faced, which carried over into all aspects of my life. In her soft-spoken way, Caroline packs an inspirational punch!
Nails what's needed in a second - just 'gets' people and organisations!
Caroline is an incredible consultant who can nail what's needed in a second and plan an amazing intervention just as fast. She just 'gets' people and organisations. An inspiration!
Very insightful and honest yet pragmatic and resourceful
I got a tremendous amount of knowledge and understanding of my personal strengths and weaknesses from my time with Caroline. I found her to be very insightful and honest yet pragmatic and resourceful with the advice and coaching provided. I take a lot of wisdom and perspective from the time spent. I am a better person for it.
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!
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.
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.
Helps me to look at situations differently now
Coaching with Caroline, I have learnt how to better manage difficult situations. There were times that I would come to a coaching session thinking there was no possible way out of a situation I was in, but Caroline helped me work through the issues and identify my options. I really liked that. It helps me to look at situations differently now. She also helped me recognise that I have good skills and experience that is transferable and that I can achieve anything if I want to.
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.
Outstanding leadership and coaching abilities
Caroline is a senior consultant whose outstanding leadership and coaching abilities, exemplary stakeholder management abilities, strong conceptual and analytical thinking, and ability to work through complex and detailed situations make her a professional I would unreservedly recommend to employers and clients alike.
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.
Refusing to solve my challenges for me – Caroline asked the right questions, let me work at my own pace and ensured that I was very much the owner of my results
Having experienced multiple personal and career setbacks, Caroline came into my life when I was stuck … and tired. Caroline demonstrated an unbelievable amount of patience as I steadfastly refused to get out of my own way. Refusing to solve my challenges for me – she asked the right questions, let me work at my own pace and ensured that I was very much the owner of my results. Most importantly, I walked away strong – with a toolkit of skills I carry with me to this day – demonstrated by the fact that as I have faced further challenges, I have got through them with remarkable ease – taking the learning with me and leaving behind what I no longer need. I cannot recommend Caroline highly enough. The possibilities are a reality now.
Infectious positive outlook and thorough knowledge of human behaviors enabled me to develop the skills I required
I had the pleasure of working with Caroline to reset my career goals and take stock of my workplace relationships. Caroline’s extensive background and experience across a range of organisations allowed her to expertly guide me through the subtleties of workplace culture and uncover missed opportunities to develop optimal outcomes for a variety of situations.
Whilst always managing to keep a smile, Caroline was able draw my attention to improvement opportunities and the positive aspects of every situation I encountered. Caroline’s infectious positive outlook and thorough knowledge of human behaviors enabled me to develop the skills I required to consciously flex my style to suit different client’s communication and learning styles.
