When I started working with Caroline as my coach, I was at a difficult crossroad in my career path, and my self-esteem was quite low. I had just finished 7 years working on my thesis and was finding it difficult to secure a job. Caro’s coaching service offered me tools to look inside myself and to work out what I was striving for. She provided emotional support, guiding me to find new perspectives and a fresh outlook. I began to re-assess my core values and to take up a new stance on my career goals. With Caro’s guidance, I found myself taking the steps I needed, becoming emotionally stronger when dealing with difficult situations.
Caro’s contribution to our process in creating The Talented Mr Ripley for stage was transformative. The level of detail, knowledge and observation provided was a rich source most theatre makers can only dream of. The process in the room was safe and inclusive but Caro was also able to sensitively provoke the artists to explore exciting character dynamics and the dynamics in the room between the actors themselves. This rich groundwork fed itself into the eventual crafting of the material, without overloading the process. Caro’s approach was researched, considered and sensitive to the needs of the project and it was an incredibly exciting collaboration for The Faction. The psychological impact was as sophisticated as it was subtle and it would be delightful to integrate Caro into more of our processes.
A-N consultancy is a practice that, by definition, yields results that are unique to the client. It offers you the best questions possible for addressing what it means to be a creator, entrepreneur, or any form of agent. Caroline is as friendly as humans come, but her questions and exercises will confront you with yourself in a serious and rigorous manner. It likely goes without saying that I recommend A-N consultancy. So, to be more precise – my way of describing anything “in good faith” – I do not recommend this to anyone who is perfectly happy with their career. Similarly, to anybody looking for namby-pamby non-advice about believing in your dreams: don’t bother.
A-N consultancy will change you.
