I was a coaching client of Carol’s for a few years as I climbed the leadership ladder. She weaved her intelligence, patience, warmth, support, insight, kindness, strength, and professionalism into each coaching session. I owe part of my success to Carol.
Carol helped me reframe challenges in a way that solutions could be identified and implemented. She’s personable, caring, and passionate about helping her clients achieve their goals. She has made me a better communicator, a better leader, and a better employee.
While each coaching engagement is unique, we offer different coaching programs to meet individual and organizational needs.

Carol provided an engaging and informative onsite training with our department leadership team. She clearly understands the unique opportunities of working in the association management space. I was also impressed with the preparation work Carol did to fully understand our team members and what motivates them, and how she made sure each team member felt heard and connected to the process.
I can honestly say, the time we spent with you was the most valuable professional development I have ever done. The team, which is typically a hard group to please, expressed the same.
By helping teams create “norms” for how they communicate and work together, we ensure consistency in how they manage and show-up as leaders in the organization. Virtual or in-person customized programs include:

Carol Vernon has a unique ability to connect in a meaningful and constructive way — both in a classroom setting, as well as individually. She provides our students with the communication skills they need to speak and present themselves professionally.
Carol’s work with our organization has helped all our employees from the most junior to senior leadership polish up their communication skills. Her coaching goes beyond just the basics and into how to really connect with an audience. We would definitely recommend her to anyone.

Carol has created a very effective women’s leadership development co-hort program in which we have had several participants. The feedback has been overwhelming positive, making a direct correlation between that experience and their success. I would highly recommend Carol to anyone looking to see himself or herself more clearly, understand their impacts on others, build more effective relationships and achieve their career goals.
The confidence I’ve gained in my ability to impact my organization has increased significantly!
