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.

What sets P2R apart from your typical executive coaching, career coaching, leadership development, change management consulting and business team building firms lies in 3 Core Principles:

1. Everything we do is ALL about YOU...

No hidden agendas, ulterior motives or inflexible methods. 

My approach is personalised to help you achieve your aspirations.

2. Change isn't done FOR you or TO you...

Rather, it is done WITH YOUI come alongside you, supporting you every step of the way, with strategies you can use and build on, long after we've finished working together. The power is all yours!

3. Change doesn't need to be HARD!

We resist it for so many reasons and while it may not be easy, we do make it simple. In fact, change can happen in a heartbeat! Together, we make change simple to achieve lasting results in real time.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Created a safe yet challenging learning environment that allowed the participants to learn, grow and stretch themselves

Caroline expertly designed and facilitated a program for a group of our emerging leaders. She created a safe yet challenging learning environment that allowed the participants to learn, grow and stretch themselves. Caroline brought wisdom, great energy, humour and a genuine desire for results. The program delivered a demonstrable shift in awareness of self for the participants and awareness about their leadership presence and shadow. Our emerging leaders also walked away with some great tools in their leadership tool kit. The feedback from the program and its impact on participants has been excellent. Thank-you Caroline!

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

Resilience - my favourite topic

Caroline's talk on resilience was my favourite topic - it's so relevant in today's world to be resilient, present, expansive, honest and understanding. Thank you for sharing how simple it is to build our resilience muscles.

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.

Ability to understand our desired outcomes and then create a program which had a clear journey for the team to achieve the set objectives was superior to other facilitators I have worked with

We recently engaged Caroline on very short notice (less than 2 weeks) to facilitate a coming together of a new Top 25 leadership team as a result of the merger of an external acquisition with an existing internal operating business.

Caroline took our brief and desired outcomes and crafted a thoroughly engaging and rewarding 2 day workshop which was about aligning culture and creating a consistent vision and set of tangible business objectives for a large business unit (greater than 500 people). All the requirements of our brief were achieved without question.

A post workshop survey conducted with the team gave Caroline a 100% score for exceeding expectations as the facilitator.

I found her ability to understand our desired outcomes and then create a program which had a clear journey for the team to achieve the set objectives was superior to other facilitators I have worked with in the past. I would thoroughly recommend Caroline to anyone looking for a facilitator who can ensure your objectives are met and exceeded, who is consistently engaging and who can work the group and their individual characteristics for maximum team and business outcomes.

Amazing and liberating to know that you can search, stretch and examine thoughts, aspirations and re-train your thinking

Initially when thinking about professional coaching I wasn’t sure what to expect, or what it would really mean. After all, I knew that I would be confiding in someone I didn’t really know - scary stuff! Within the initial session Caroline was able to address my concerns. This was a professional relationship, not a friendship. From the first session, I felt comfortable with Caroline knowing that she wouldn’t judge me and that I could trust her with everything.

It is amazing and completely liberating to know that you can search, stretch and examine thoughts, aspirations and re-train your thinking without that feeling that you may hurt, disappoint or damage a key relationship in your life.

Through coaching I have redefined my boundaries and been able to accept that I can only control me – this was a major step for me and a path that Caroline expertly guided me through. Not once did Caroline tell me what to do, feel or behave. The success or failure of this, of me, was based solely on me.

Friends comment that following this experience I am much more grounded, self -aware, self-confident and trusting. Caroline was an amazing support and guide to me. Her capability to explore, examine and listen without telling me what to do was key to the success of this experience. Her patience and willingness to explore what is important to me without judgement was liberating.

I would recommend this experience to anyone who wishes to take their life to the next level, in another direction or address some of their self-limiting beliefs or overcome obstacles. My advice, in undertaking coaching with Caroline, is to give it 110%. Caroline will give you 110% and, as the old saying goes to get the most out it – go hard or go home. You will be only cheating yourself if you give it any less.

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.

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.

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.
