"My executive coaching sessions have helped me to become more intentional, more self-confident, and overall more effective at work. Through her insightful questions, observations and suggestions, I have become better equipped for dealing with issues, imposing myself on a situation and managing both upwards and downwards. With increased awareness of my own strengths, development areas and patterns of behaviour (good and bad, habitual and aspirational), I am more decided in approaching situations from the perspective of “What can I contribute?", "What is broken?", "What are the resources at my disposal to help?" Actively seeking out awkward conversations where necessary versus avoiding them, focusing on outcomes while tapping into internal sources of motivation."
"Susan is a pleasure to work with, her warm and engaging personality puts everyone she works with at ease. She gives you the perfect nuggets of information and facilitates a space where you can create a vision for your business. Her years of experience in this area are obvious from the moment you meet her."
'I have had the opportunity to work with Caroline over the past number of years and more recently in her capacity as Executive Coach. Caroline excels at creating that safe and trusted space that is instrumental to unlocking leadership potential. She is incredibly goal focused ensuring that her clients succeed with their coaching agenda. It is truly a great pleasure to work with Caroline, someone who consistently delivers and is incredibly experienced and knowledgeable'
"I most appreciated the very tailored and thoughtful approach, and the range of examples, experiences and state-of-the-art thinking that she was able to draw on to illuminate my own journey."
“I cannot recommend a coaching experience with Scala Advance strongly enough. Working with Susan not only helped me to achieve my goals, but more importantly, she also helped me to uncover my true goals, career ambitions and value. Susan was skillfully adept at helping me focus on what is really important to me, what stands in my way and what next steps I want and need to take to accomplish my goals. She is a great listener but also gives pragmatic and/or creative advice when the situation warrants it. Through working with a coach, I realised that the time had come for me to make a dramatic career shift that had always seemed too scary for me before. Susan talked me through the process and supported me every step of the way."
"Without hestitation, I'd recommend Caroline to any organisation. She has many years of experience in business & HR and this shows in her knowledge and skills. She's a great listener, and is one of the most down to earth & credible people I've met in business. Her passion for lifelong learning which she absolutely role models herself, is inspiring"
“Working with Susan has been a real pleasure. Not only is she a very experienced and competent facilitator who really knows how to structure each event but also she has a certain magic about her that all participants instantly warm to. The net result is that you have total confidence in achieving the results you need.”
“Susan designed and led a workshop on mentoring for 100 women business leaders at Google EMEA HQ in Ireland. The session received excellent feedback, giving attendees the springboard they needed to become outstanding mentors or start a mentoring programme in their organisation.
The workshop’s success inspired the start an international leadership programme called ‘Cross-Sector Mentorship Peer Learning Circle’
I was impressed by Susan's professionalism. Her speaking style and level of knowledge meant she could easily engage and lead the large audience. The workshop’s content was highly relevant and interactive and it was a truly enjoyable day of learning.”
"'I have had the pleasure of working with Caroline over a long number of years in her capacity of HR Director. She is hugely credible, authentic, driven and her work ethic is tremendous. I have always known Caroline to provide sound, commercial support to both me and other senior executives. She is world class at what she does and leaves a lasting impression with those she works with'
"I attended an event which Susan facilitated and was hugely impressed. I still remember many details of the event which is rare considering I attend so many. Susan was really expert at getting engagement and participation in a very inclusive way, she also had a lovely presentation style - imparting knowledge, making you really question your thinking and and helping the attendee move forward. The various exercises which she designed were both fun and most useful to get to the nub of the issue and to help us move towards tangible actions. I hope to have the opportunity to attend another session run by Susan again"
