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!

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

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.

Anne Maerz - Principal Trainer, Research at Connecting Care Program | Parkville EMR

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

A high impact player who brings a wealth of experience and applies it through an open mind and ear.

I engaged Caroline to provide guidance and leadership to our change management team on a large transformation project. Her skill in change management is undeniable and her results speak for themselves. Caroline is a high impact player who brings a wealth of experience and applies it through an open mind and ear. Caroline anticipates issues and takes actions that prevent problems thereby removing much of the pain out of change management.

Caroline has also provided me career coaching support. Her approach challenged my own self limiting beliefs to open up thoughts and opportunities that I didn’t believe possible. Caroline is a truly inspiring change management professional and executive coach.

Travis Liersch - Consutant and Business Coach | Travis Liersch Consulting

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

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

Enabled insights that previously could not be seen

As a mentor and a coach Caroline has provided me with tremendous advice and guidance over a period of time. Caroline has an in-depth technical knowledge of coaching and matches this with an appropriate style to assist in enabling insights that previously could not be seen. I highly recommend Caroline.

James Pettitt - Director, Portfolio Governance and Performance | RMIT University

Caroline gave me the skills and confidence I needed to clarify the type of leader I want to be and successfully navigate a team restructure

Moving from middle management to a senior leadership role I knew I would have to take a different
approach. Coaching with Caroline gave me the skills and confidence I needed to clarify the type of
leader I want to be and successfully navigate a team restructure. Challenging me to step outside my
comfort zone, Caroline armed me with the beliefs, techniques and approaches I needed to step out
of the detail; see the bigger picture and work strategically to achieve it. She has a great way of
drawing on your past experience, developing your strengths and helping you convert your ideas into
outcomes and I recommend her to anyone who is ready to take the next step in their career.

Emma Catford - Chief Implementation Officer | Fire Rescue Victoria, Dept Justice & Community Safetye

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.

Fiona Tribe - Director | White Owl Consulting

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

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!

Enabled me to confidently apply my own insight and experience to any situation

I was fortunate to have corporate coaching sessions with Caroline during a period of organisational change. Caroline helped me recognise my progress and enabled me to draw on my own strengths to address my goals. I was always assured that the very valuable "between" session calls (laser coaching) were never an imposition, and was able to use these sessions to clarify my decision-making processes through the most challenging moments. Caroline's innovative approach assisted me to expand my possible choices, to focus my thinking well, and to consider great alternatives. Being able to identify the “opportunities” that uncertainty can provide is a strength I gained. Caroline's expert coaching has enabled me to confidently apply my own insight and experience to any situation. She got to know me well , reflecting back at me an understanding of my situation, aspirations, goals, misgivings and limits….and then took me beyond them through our coaching sessions!

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, emotionally attuned, able to skillfully challenge and re frame my thinking

I have been privileged to have Caroline as an Executive coach over the last 2 years. Caroline is highly skilled, emotionally attuned and is able to skillfully challenge and re frame my thinking, alongside providing many strategies to overcome challenges and build my confidence and success as a leader. Caroline has assisted me to "dig deep" and really understand who I am, and what I stand for as a leader. Having the space and support to develop through coaching with Caroline has been a gift.

Michelle Van Doorn - National Executive Director of Services | OzChild

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.

Lynn W - CIO

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.
