"Cheshire-Puss, would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"

"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to", said the Cat.

"I don't much care where", said Alice.

"Then it doesn't matter which way you go", said the Cat. ...

"So long as I get somewhere" Alice added as an explanation.

"Oh you're sure to do that" said the Cat, "if only you walk enough."

Look Who's Talking: Coaching to Speak

Listeners to your talk will later be heard saying: "Why did (s)he stop talking?” as opposed to “Why didn’t (s)he stop talking?”

From a recent client:

"Carol Ann Fried is a uniquely gifted coach. While one can immediately be won over by her gregarious nature, it’s her warmth and genuine desire to serve her clients that truly shines through.  While she has a variety of areas of expertise that can be deployed in any given moment, she takes things a step further by insisting that her clients let her know immediately if the specific concern that she is helping with speaks to your particular needs. This continuous co-creative approach yields tremendous results.

Carol Ann personally helped me excel in a few key areas of public speaking. She guided me with “cadence” and poise, moments to interject humour and personalizing my topic. Integrating her suggestions enabled me to reach my audience as never before. The feedback I received was overwhelmingly positive.  Work with Carol Ann and experience the “Friedom" that will take your work to the next level!"

Put Your Workspace On A Diet: Lose Waste Now! Coaching for Efficiency

Decluttering your office will lead to decluttering your mind and a sense of enhanced clarity to get on with your work priorities. We'll roll up our sleeves and become clear on what to dump, do, delegate or delay. Drawers, shelves, piles of paper will disappear and be organized.

From a recent client:

"As a real estate agent, I knew that I would be even more productive and feel so much better about working at home if I could take my workspace out of my bedroom and move it into the garage. I hired Carol Ann to support and help me. After little over a half day and a trip to the dump, I now have a cheerful, warm and inviting space where I am organized and happy to work. I sleep better at night without my work materials beckoning every time I turn over!

I would highly recommend Carol Ann's organizational and decluttering prowess - she even brought lunch for us! And chocolate!" - Isabella Bateson
