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. But one day you wake up and with a sinking heart, you 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:

Caroline Cameron Career Coach Melbourne
  • 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!

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.

Vicki Young - Director of Curation | Spark the Change

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.

John Dalton - Director, Policy Co-ordination | Dept Jobs, REgions & Precincts

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.

Jane Newsome - Partner | Roberts & Morrow

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.

Rick Nugent - Deputy Commissioner | Victoria Police

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!

Mariela Diaz - Director, Family Violence Reform | Magistrates Court of Victoria

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.

Nicole Thomas - Director, Aviation Advisor | Uiver Memorial Community Trust

The standout benefit to working with Caroline is her ability to see beyond boundaries for her clients

I engaged Caroline as a coach, at a time I was seeking clarity around engineering a future direction for myself that would allow me to tap into my unique skills and be something I was truly engaged with. Caroline's coaching allowed me to really open up to the possibilities that were available to me, and previously impossible for me to see. Her structured program provided all the tools necessary to get a strategy out of my head and down on paper. The incredible insights and guidance from Caroline allowed me to map out that direction for myself with both clarity and conviction. The standout benefit to working with Caroline is her ability to see beyond boundaries for her clients,and in some cases simply not accept them, holding her clients to account and enabling them to take the first crucial steps towards their future. I would highly recommend Caroline for coaching and life design strategy. Her dedication and depth and range of experience is excellent.

Chris Picone - Founder | The Stevie Project

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.

Lisa Iurada - Personal Image Stylist | Cocoon Styling

Authentic, non evasive, able to support me to see & bring on my potential without being directive

Caroline was sensational during our Coaching. Authentic, non evasive, able to support me to see & bring on my potential without being directive. Caroline was always professional with a dash of humour and personable always. Structured whilst able to think outside of the box! I am thankful for our time together. It was a turning point, one that I continue to learn from.

Mandy Baxter - Manager, Youth Services | Barwon Child, Youth & Family

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.

Richard Blair - Manager, Emergency Management & Facilities | Campbelltown City Council

Will ​​your ​​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!

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.

Sue Buckley - Assistant Deputy Secretary | Dept Education & Training

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
Sunil Patel - CFO | Redcape Hotel Group

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.

Liz O'Donnell - Consultant | SMS Management & Technology

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!

Robert Macey - General Manager Commercial & Franchise | Metro Trains

Encouraging, challenging but gentle, and most importantly - focused on results

Caroline's coaching is encouraging, challenging but gentle, and most importantly - focused on results. She creates change in the client by directing their inherent strengths towards their ambitions. The tools she uses to frame success are bespoke and effective. I benefited greatly from my sessions with Caroline - she helped me find a renewed gusto for my career and as a result I look forward to the challenges that lie ahead - and conquering them!

I strongly recommend Caroline to any executive leader looking to sharpen their focus on job and career.

Yossi Goldfarb - Executive Leader | Dept of Jobs, Precincts & Regions

A new confidence, new views and tools and clarity of purpose

Our coaching has given me a new confidence, new views and tools on how to do things as well as clarity of purpose relating to those many rocks (priorities) on my desk. What I’ve learnt I will use in my next role, as well as being able to help others to use. Energized, whilst my end goal is still in the distance, I know I will get there…motivation is a hard thing to break if you firmly believe in it…..thanks Caroline. Thank you for your views and observations and ability to provide relevant and very insightful information…….it has made such a difference, for today and moving forward.

Manfred Barone - Director | Premium Retail Solutions

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.

Ralph Muthaya - Head of Food & Beverage | Melbourne Racing Club

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.

Suzanne Collins - Scrum Lead, Product Definition Solution | Telstra

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.
