As a Career Success Coach I work with clients who are looking for a new career or a new position & with leaders wanting to become even more effective.
For Career Transitioners - Whether you are looking for a new “perfect fit” career, shifting your career niche, re-bounding from a lay off, searching for a position in your field with a new organization, or looking for your next promotion – it’s all jazz to me! We work together to break through any barriers you are experiencing, create compelling targeted resumes, cover letters & on-line bios and use innovative Web 2.0 strategies to help you land a great job in the shortest possible time. I’ve helped hundreds of clients find exciting new careers – often with a significant bump in compensation. Oh - all that, & we have fun too; that’s NOT negotiable!
I have a special interest and expertise in using a variety of social media, professional branding & innovative strategies to turn a traditional job search into a creative, interactive and relationship-oriented process. If you are interested in a leading edge job search we could be a great match!
For Leaders – Whether you are an emerging, new or seasoned leader, leadership coaching is a proven performance builder. We work together to hone your leadership skills, crystallize your leadership style, increase awareness, focus and impact, build confidence & achieve extraordinary results. My commitment is that we work to your leadership agenda, build on your strengths, acknowledge & work on “blind spots”, hold the big picture while dealing with what is happening in the moment & still find room for laughter and fun.
I'm a professionally trained coach through the Coaches Training Institute (CTI) - the largest coach training school in the world - & a CCMC (Certified Career Management Coach). I hold a PCC (Professional Certified Coach) through the ICF. I'd love to learn what you want to create in your life and your work & help you get there!

Carolyn has an open, friendly and sincere manner that makes working with her easy and enjoyable. She helped me discover what my strengths are and the value I could provide to future employers. Since working with Carolyn, I have started a new career that is well aligned with my values and strengths. I highly recommend Carolyn for anyone in career transition.N.P., Manager, Healthcare, Calgary
Carolyn was my coach after I lost my position. She helped me through some very difficult times - I was grieving my lost position and doubting my abilities. Her calm demeanor, professionalism and knowledge helped me overcome those dark days. Through our work together I was able to return to a difficult job market and was well prepared to face this new challenge in my life. I was recently told that I represent myself exceptionally well in an interview and I attribute this to Carolyn's efforts. I'm in a new role now that I enjoy with a great organization.G.

You kick butt as a coach, with your unique blend of warmth, love, compassion, and gentle toughness.D.B., CEO, IT, Calgary
I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do next – our coaching conversations helped me to clarify my target position. The assistance you gave me with my marketing materials and and how to structure a successful job search was critical. I appreciated how professional and knowledgeable you were; I hadn’t looked for a job for many years. It liked how you focused on reflection first - then action, and how you gently challenged me to keep moving forward. Our work has resulted in my landing just the role I had envisioned when we first started working together!T.M., L & D Advisor, Oil & Gas, Calgary
I’ve loved having you as my coach. You’re funny, perceptive and smart. You ask strong “conscious” questions and your courage and commitment to helping me wake up and discover important truths has been transformative. An inspiration, a motivator, my wonderful coach!M.W., HR Consultant and Facilitator, Calgary
I fortunate to have had Carolyn work with me on my career re-building project. Carolyn is not only understanding and insightful but she is also a great motivator.”M.S., Manager, Environmental Services, Calgary
I truly cherish my coaching appointments with you. Each session keeps me both grounded and focused on what I want to achieve in all areas of my life. Through coaching I have been able to consciously create my life. I am able to celebrate successes and achievements and work on issues or problems that I am struggling with. You are warm, sensitive and creative in your comments, exercises and approach to “problem solving”. I see great value in each of my sessions and I always look forward to my coaching callsS.J., Entrepreneur, Financial Services, Calgary
When I get off a call I feel like we have been playing. I always feel more alive and energized. That surprises me because I though this was supposed to be hard work and in fact it is but it is full of joy and lightness as well. I also appreciate that when I feel overwhelmed you have the flexibility to come at things from another direction and to break things down into baby steps.C.S., Education Consultant, Healthcare, Toronto
Coaching with you has had a huge impact on me. I recognized the value of coaching before and have worked with other coaches - but you do an amazing job of meeting me exactly where I am on any given day. I can honestly say that with your guidance on my journey I have managed to accomplish some milestones that have not only helped me but my family too. Thank you for your wisdom, gentleness and firm hand when I needed it the most!E.S., Team Lead, Post-Secondary Education, Calgary
