“Carol provided individual coaching and team empowerment to a public sector organization using her StrengthsFinder® methodology. The performance of that organization was hampered by poor communication, weak collaboration among its senior leadership, and low morale. Using her exceptional interpersonal skills, knowledge and approach, Carol’s work with several different teams within the organization resulted in an enhanced appreciation for the need for improved communication, appreciating and accepting each other’s strengths, and ultimately a much more functional working environment. The senior leadership team noted that the coaching and team facilitation had an extremely positive impact on the “soft side” of the organization making it a better performing team with higher productivity and customer satisfaction. I would not hesitate to call on Carol again.”
