Career Coaching

Career Change for smart professionals who
want to make their difference, doing what they love,
but don't know where to start..

Be honest - if your workplace closed today (and money wasn't an issue), would you be relieved or sad?

If you answered 'relieved', you're in the right place! But here's the problem:.

You've worked hard to build your skills, knowledge, experience and relationships. Then one day you wake up and with a sinking heart, and realise you simply don't love your work anymore.  What was once exciting and challenging is now mundane and frustrating and you feel like you're simply going through the motions.

Career Slump is rife amongst bright, mid-career professionals. And while it may seem easier to stay where you are, the cost of doing so is way bigger than you may realise. Staying in a job that has passed its use-by date can have life-long consequences:

  • An ever-increasing sense that you're not making a difference that really matters
  • Boredom feeds self-doubt and anxiety, eating away at your perspective and self-worth
  • At the end of your career, you'll look back and wonder if playing it safe, staying where you are was actually worth it.

Do you really want to keep pounding away on the treadmill of unfulfilling, thankless work for another year...?

Life is too short to not be doing work you love!

What P2R Clients Experience

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.

Exceptional at drawing out what lay dormant in me

Caroline was exceptional at drawing out what lay dormant in me. Her strategies are simple but highly effective in assisting me to develop strong high level skills to run a large, highly complex, challenging and values driven government program. I found the experience of working of working with Caroline highly empowering by providing me with the ability to make the best of my people, my boss and of course me. She is well trained and very skilled at her job but most importantly to me - she is real, kind and challenging!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Will P2R Career Coaching Work for Me?

If you are genuinely ready to make a career change...

I work best with clients who...
  • Are naturally curious and open-minded - willing to explore and experiment to discover what will work
  • Prioritise their coaching - commit to gaining the most from the opportunity
  • Are values oriented -  trust, integrity and honesty are cornerstones of a great coaching relationship
It probably isn't right if you are...
  • Too busy or not ready for coaching - let's not waste each other's time
  • Not 100% committed to doing whatever it takes to get the results you want
  • Unwilling or unable to invest in yourself - professional coaching is an investment in your future
Rest assured, you don't have to know how to make a career change.  You simply need a strong desire to make it happen!

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!

Caroline helped me identify my 'blind spots' and better understand my impact on others

I would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank Caroline for the past eighteen months as my executive coach. Caroline is a brilliant coach who enabled me to become a far more effective leader in my organisation. Caroline consistently challenged and extended my thinking, provided me with a range of strategies to overcome challenges and barriers and enhanced my strengths by learning to consciously apply them at different times. Most importantly Caroline helped me identify my 'blind spots' and better understand my impact on others. As a result of the coaching I now have more job satisfaction, increased self-confidence and improved relationships with my staff. This has all led to increased performance and results by individuals and teams.

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.
