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.

Warm and relational style of engagement has been a great fit and her ability to assist us to take strategic concepts to completion has been an enormous benefit
Melbourne City Mission engaged Caroline's services on a number of occasions over the past 12 years to assist us in the development and implementation of a number of strategic processes.
Caroline's warm and relational style of engagement has been a great fit to our organisation, and her ability to assist us to take strategic concepts to completion has been an enormous benefit.
As a not-for-profit organisation, Melbourne City Mission has benefitted from Caroline’s expert ability to work with our strengths and potential to create tangible and successful outcomes. She has consistently and generously gone 'above and beyond' the scope of the brief to support our work with disadvantaged communities.
Caroline draws upon a wide network of connections upon which to 'connect the dots' and has certainly brokered relationships and connections to assist me in the development of my services.

Caroline has a very unique and special way of helping people become everything they hope to be
Working with Caroline has been an absolutely life changing experience and I can truly say that I am a better person for having met and worked with her. Her calming and friendly conversational skills allow you to get to the root cause of discussion points, without making you feel uncomfortable. Caroline was always present and I was at the center of her time. She listens and makes what you're talking about really important and there's no need to hold back. Caroline has a very unique and special way of helping people become everything they hope to be.
Amazed at the change I could feel in myself after each session - more confident than ever before
After my first hour with Caroline I was sure that I could benefit enormously from her help. I felt I had been talking to a friend and I was so comfortable in Caroline’s company.
I was amazed at the change I could feel in myself after each session. I’m more confident than ever before and while I feel so positive after speaking with Caroline, I’ve also learned techniques and questions to ask myself which help me get through situations on my own, as I confront them.
Each time I have gone to Caroline with something that is a causing concern she has been able to help me feel that I can deal with the situation. Even a problem that I couldn’t imagine could be made easy, was made manageable by breaking it down into small steps. I have since used the strategy we came up with and was very happy to find that I could approach my task without the usual dread. In fact, my new approach was so successful and positive that my confidence has grown even more.
I could not be more grateful to Caroline, as she has opened up so many possibilities for me by asking questions that really make me think and allowing me to work through challenges.
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.
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 skilled at challenging everyone and creating a safe learning space
Caroline is great. She is a great communicator and fantastic facilitator – very insightful, inclusive and interesting. She’s very skilled at challenging everyone and creating a safe learning space. I’ve learned and grown so much throughout this program.
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.
Lateral solutions, realistic targets and a no-nonsense approach to problem solving
Caroline has been fantastic at helping me achieve my professional goals - lateral solutions, realistic targets and a no-nonsense approach to problem solving. I particularly appreciated the chance to explore the issues before we decided on a course of action. Our sessions were always highly collaborative and engaging. I highly recommend Caroline as an Executive Career Coach and am appreciative of her efforts in supporting my improved performance.
Enriching presentation - a real hit!
We were all enriched by Caroline's presentation - it was a real hit. It worked perfectly with the day and was absolutely focused on our people.
By far the best leadership program I've ever done
Caroline was excellent – having been through several similar courses, this leadership program was by far the best I’ve ever done.
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!
Energy, Drive and Patience
Thank you to Caroline for your energy, drive and patience with us. We set an ambitious target of defining our purpose, setting our vision and working out how we could achieve it. After a very full and draining day, I am proud of what we achieved as our foundation and particularly the spirit in which we all got there.
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.
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.
An excellent speaker - engaging and relatable
Caroline is an excellent speaker. She was fantastic at the pre-workshop as well - so engaging and relatable. I gained so much that I will take away and actually use.
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.
I was somewhat skeptical about the full value of executive coaching until I met and worked with Caroline who is absolutely brilliant!
I was somewhat skeptical about the full value of executive coaching until I met and worked with Caroline who is absolutely brilliant. She has a wonderful way of stretching and challenging you to go further and critically evaluate yourself but also enables you to walk out of any coaching session feeling absolutely inspired about next steps. I would recommend Caroline's coaching to anyone who is looking for that next competitive edge but remains uncertain whether coaching can work. She is one of the best.
Participants feeling very inspired and motivated about change!
Caroline did a great job hosting our Community Development Forum! She kept everyone engaged and the range of activities that were implemented was highly effective.
It was obvious that people made new connections and gained practical tools to take away, which met our brief perfectly.
Already this morning we have had feedback from participants on how they are feeling very inspired and motivated about change!
Highly responsive to the individual’s pace, needs and issues, while remaining quietly focused on the desired outcomes.
Perhaps you've found yourself drifting, unwillingly, into the Talking Heads’ song, Once in a Lifetime: "Letting the days go by / let the water hold me down". Perhaps you're starting to wonder, "Where does that highway go? / And you may ask yourself / Am I right? ...am I wrong? / And you may tell yourself / My god!...what have I done?" I'm not sure I thought about it at the time – I don't even particularly like the song – but in retrospect I think these lyrics approximate the indecisive and diffident state I found myself in, floating aimlessly, but at least beginning to heed an increasingly insistent inner voice calling for change and growth.
If this resonates with you, then I sincerely recommend Caroline Cameron to you. Her coaching expertise and experience, coupled with her enthusiasm, commitment and admirable personal qualities, are a very potent combination, well designed to help anyone ready to make the necessary individual effort, to achieve fundamental, lasting and above all positive personal change.
Caroline’s approach differs from more mechanistic, structured or task-based coaching frameworks that I’d sampled. Her techniques are subtle (and thus difficult to articulate with great precision), her enormous skill as a coach is unobtrusive, and she is highly responsive to the individual’s pace, needs and issues, while remaining quietly focused on the desired outcomes.
Some weeks after completing a coaching course with Caroline, I’ve found she has indeed imparted skills that I am able to apply effectively, independently of the structure and security of the coaching relationship. I may still be learning to swim, but the water no longer holds me down and I'm swimming my own course. I'd urge you to take the plunge too.
Astute listener who provides considered and practical advice and guidance
Caroline is an astute listener who provides considered and practical advice and guidance. I recommend her strongly as an executive and career coach.
