Carol Vickers’ coaching and facilitation practice is based on the belief that human systems are made and imagined by those that live and work within them. She supports the most creative and generative systems in organizations, families and relationships. Her way of being has been altered and remains informed by the model of Appreciative Inquiry where she found a structure and process for what she has held as true for all of her life.

She brings 25 years of small and medium enterprise management, operations management, strategic planning, leadership, training and coaching to my practice. Carol is known for her ability to foster connection and create community. Intentional and productive communications are the key to her process with clients. Clients say that Carol listens at a profound and deep level, allowing them to realize their intentions and powerfully take actions to fulfill their ambitions and purposes.

Carol’s approach to both coaching and facilitating is practical and thoughtful. She has observed the potent changes in the clients and students who have engaged in an Appreciative paradigm. The opportunity to operate from strengths and possibility naturally opens people to be able to experience life with significant ease and grace.
