What people say
"After just one session with Carolyn I walked away with more clarity, a solid action plan, and tangible next steps for me to take; it was an incredibly valuable experience.
I have always been skeptical of coaches and their outputs, and working with Carolyn reshaped my understanding of what having a coach can do - not just for my own professional and career development, but for my ongoing self-development as a whole person.
She really challenged me and pushed me to get clear on my own words, thoughts, and values while seamlessly weaving in nuggets of support. Her style was diplomatic and neutral, and she kept us on track by not letting the muddy details mire down our higher level thinking.
She also made sure I had at least one tangible action step to implement after our session. I’ve spent most of my career in non-traditional work spaces and self-employment, and Carolyn’s sage expertise in the business world was instrumental in helping me navigate a new office landscape without letting go of my values as a person.
This was a deeply impactful session, and I would recommend Carolyn to anyone who’s actually ready to take their careers into their own hands and make meaningful change."
- Allie Beckmann, Financial Planner
“Carolyn's warm and encouraging approach made me feel so comfortable sharing my struggles and obstacles. She helped me see clarity around prioritizing projects and work for the year ahead. Overwhelm is a big problem for me in the work I'm doing and having an ear and a guide to coach you through all of the stuff is really an asset.
One thing that has changed for me after working with Carolyn is that once I get out of overwhelm and make an important decision and execute, I feel more confident in my abilities - which translates to me trusting myself more. More trust = more momentum!”
Lee Stiffler-Meyer, Founder Let the Light In Studio
“Carolyn has helped me become better at problem solving relationships with deeper levels of communication and mutual understanding.”
– Mark K, Executive Director of Non-Profit
“I am more open minded about solving work problems in ways that may seem less obvious to me. You were able to help me find solutions that did not create drama or big confrontation with my boss or coworkers.
-Julia Berlin, Client Services
“Carolyn helped me get to the bottom of a messy problem, unravel it, and come back with a path forward.”
– Melissa Stark, Professional Services
"I have a much better understanding of how the creative people I work with think. We’ll be able to work together more cooperatively now and move forward on issues that had us stuck."
"I recently had a very productive discussion with Carolyn about my career path. It was immediately evident that Carolyn loves connecting with people and helping them find opportunities where they would thrive. I was so impressed with her human-ness, and with her deep understanding of both corporate and non-profit work environments. Carolyn was able to help me identify several key next steps. I look forward to exchanging ideas with Carolyn going forward."
- Paul D
"Carolyn has a unique ability to engage your mind with questions and relevant experience to draw out what is your true passion AND detail a plan that helps you realize that passion.
She helped me realize in one session what my passion was not only for a career but in life – something that after many months of soul searching I only had a foggy idea of where I should focus my energies. I highly recommend her and continue with her as my coach today."
