Carol Ellis Toronto, Ontario
Leadership Coach, Executive Coach, Team Coach
You are a good leader and you know you can be even better. Do you want to grow your emotional intelligence, be more effective, lead your team to even greater success?
I coach leaders and teams who want to be the best they can be, who have ambitious goals and want to achieve them.
I know what it is like to go through change, to work in a complex system and organization and to want more in your life to be the best you can be.
Coaching was a natural progression for me after working in human resources in a senior leadership role in a large organization for many years. I became fascinated by the action-oriented nature of coaching. Focusing on strengths, understanding your values, being clear on how the way you are being is getting you the results you are seeing - all create the impact you have and the quality of your work and life. Through coaching you will gain insights and understanding that will result in making changes that you choose.
I am professionally trained by the Adler Institute of Toronto, am a certified member of the International Coaching Federation (PCC), and a Certified Neuro Transformational Coach CNTC.
My mission is to help you create sustainable change, growth, and learning. I am here to encourage and inspire you. You are the creator of your life and through our coaching, I will work with you to find the confidence to achieve your goals.
My clients say that I am warm and caring and that I bring a sense of humour to my work. You will get the support you deserve at the critical moments when you need it the most. As your thinking partner, I will be that person who reminds you of your abilities and helps you to find your way through the challenges.
I believe in walking the talk - therefore personal development and growth have always been a huge passion of mine. Life on learning is a core value.
To find out if I am the coach for you I offer a complimentary 30 minute consultation. Why not give me a call today to get started.

Carol is an excellent coach. She approaches issues honestly and authentically, and I was able to learn and grow both personally and professionally as a result.2014, Kathy, Passionate Marketing and Fundraising Professional, St. Clements School
Carol coached me for my articling interviews and I found her a very warm and knowledgeable coach. She helped me polish my answers to the typical set of interview questions and worked with me to prepare some ingenious - and honest! - answers to that dreaded “greatest weakness” question. She also taught me a number of excellent techniques for managing interview stress and improving body language. Carol's coaching absolutely made me a more confident and effective interviewer and I would not hesitate to recommend her."Amy, Final Year Law Student, Toronto, Ontario - 2014
