To be successful at work, soft skills matter. Technical expertise is not enough. How you manage yourself and relate to others (your EQ) is more important than your IQ as you progress toward leadership.

training and speaking life coachingMany of us are friendly, get along with people, can encourage, motivate and inspire others to be their ‘best’ selves. The crucial missing piece is not being our own ‘best’ selves – yet when we believe in ourselves, look after ourselves and are willing to be flexible, face our fears and “have a go”, not only can we go further, but our businesses do too.

Testimonial from The ICRC for “What’s stopping you? Build confidence and achieve more at work”

Cara’s workshop was holistic, covering everything from identifying and naming problems to practical tips for how to deal with them. Working with people from all over the world who had never had coaching before, she calmly took onboard all our questions and comments and helped every one who attended – despite the differences in our life experiences and struggles. She was charming and kind, and kept all 30 participants engaged for the entire session. 


I ran a workshop on overcoming your Inner Critic for an amazing group of women – Specialist nurses who care for those suffering from Parkinsons. This is what they said:

“Thank you so much for the inspirational workshop. There was such positive feedback from the group and everyone appeared a bit lighter and brighter when they left for home. I think it is probably the most enlightening thing I have done in the last few years.”
