Kathy provided my team with a participatory and experiential session on coaching and courageous conversations. In just over 3 hours the team was able to learn practical skills that helped to enhance their personal and professional growth. Her facilitation style and activities were engaging, supportive and relatable to the challenges we face in our work environment today.

There are so many great things to say about Kathy and her coaching. She gets to know you and find out what makes you tick. She then takes that knowledge to build a custom program that’s right for you. She makes the coaching process easy and effortless. Even a skeptic of coaching and its effectiveness could change their mind if they started to work with Kathy. One of the best things about Kathy and her coaching style is how genuine she is with you. This translates into trust which translates into progress, your progress. Kathy gives you just enough of a challenge to keep things fresh and manageable in your work/life balance. I would recommend Kathy to anyone looking to explore or re-explore coaching.
Regardless of the complexity of the learners’ individual needs, Cara will move your organization forward with learning products that far exceed expectations. Her experience in all steps of the learning and training processes is almost impossible to find.

ANGELA SAUNDERS | CHIEF SALES AND MARKETING OFFICER
Cara, with her expertise, was able to assist us with our learning needs while keeping our corporate vision alive. Using her education and experience, she worked collaboratively to expand our thinking, offering unique and customized ways to address our needs. She was a pleasure to work with and made the whole process very easy for us and the employees.
We brought Kathy onboard to support us as we built out some new leadership development programming and laid the groundwork for an initial employee engagement survey. During a period of tremendous growth, Kathy’s flexible approach and unflappable demeanour were an incredible support to me. We were successful in rolling out two new pilot programs and gathering executive buy in and a vendor decision for an engagement survey. I would not have been able to do it without Kathy’s support.
