Carole Ames did an excellent job working with our management team around communication and team-work. Our learning was enriched through her insightful and compassionate facilitation. As a team, we have embraced a new understanding of communication and this has enriched our connections and effectiveness. Carole has also been available for follow-up coaching and it has been invaluable in integrating the learning. We would definitely recommend Carole as a facilitator and coach.

VICTORIA WOMEN IN NEED (WIN) COOPERATIVE
Carole brings a broad perspective and a great deal of creativity to her work, which is also grounded in her pragmatism and solid knowledge of organizational leadership in both the not-for-profit and business sectors. She is clear, direct and comes across as genuinely interested in the work and the people of the organization she is working with. She also has strong and effective conflict resolution skills that help people pause, listen and move forward together with respect out of those occasional stuck places we can all encounter.

The Haven owes a debt of gratitude to Carole for her hard work over the 8 years she has been Director of International Relations. There are many factors that have contributed to the success of our programs in China, and a key one has been the skill, dedication and passion that Carole has brought to her role. Thank you Carole for your part in establishing and maintaining this important part of our international work.

It was wonderful being at the Haven, getting to know you and benefiting from your extensive knowledge and skill. Plus, I love your sense of humour! Thank you for everything!

Carole uses humour as an approach to personal growth and exploration, which provides an excellent tunnel to view your emotional landscape. As a result, participants experience a fast and easy connection with each other through humour. Using humour as the jumping off point creates a comfortable padding to start exploring the deeper emotions or current issues/circumstances that you may avoid in your day to day life.
