Old St Area
I specialise in helping skilled entrepreneurs, leaders, managers and self-employed people who are 'stuck' to break through to their next move. I'll support you to get the career and business you know you deserve by giving you the skills you need to get recognised in your work. These skills are not the same skills you use to do your day-to-day job.
Using communication and behaviour tools, I help you unravel your own unconscious preferences in the ways you behave and communicate, and in the things you choose to prioritise, to help you create a mindset for success.
You’ll come to understand:
- Your 'autopilot'
- How you come across to others and where you sabotage yourself.
- How to read people and predict the ways that they’ll behave.
- What you need to do and the ways you need to behave in order to get to the life and career you want.
Communication, emotional intelligence and self-awareness are critical factors when things in your career and business go right… or wrong. Sixty percent of your success is dependent on these factors and nearly all my work involves these areas. Better relationships in and outside of work are a bonus.
I take a whole-person approach because you take all of you to work and you take your work home, even if it's just in your head. Success in one affects the other. Habits we're not aware of can have effects we are also not aware of. Some habits are useful, necessary and positive, others are not. Some patterns of thinking may have been useful to us at one time but now they can make us feel exhausted and unhappy and we want to change them.
My clients tell me how they value and look forward to their coaching sessions, they learn a lot about themselves and feel inspired to take action to achieve what they want. I love it when there's a 'lightbulb' moment. Please read some of their testimonials (see under 'further information' below). Some clients I work with for just six sessions, and others I have been working with for a couple of years.
I work with clients by Skype, phone, face-to face, in bespoke workshops or a mixture as required.

Areas of coaching I deal with
Photos & videos
I am happy to do one-to-one coaching in person (face-to-face), by telephone or online with web conference system from any device. Online coaching is cost efficient and flexible.
As a rough guide I usually charge approx £125 for personal coaching and approx £170 for executive coaching per session. Monthly fees can be arranged. If you are genuinely unemployed or are a small business owner, then please raise this with me so that we can come to an arrangement.
If you want to share coaching sessions with a friend(s) or colleague(s) who have similar goals and issues, I am open to doing group coaching with up to 3 people at a time and this can be extremely good value. *This can also work in a corporate setting.
I have several different packages at different price points, so you decide how much you want to pay. Please get in touch for more information on my services or to arrange a complimentary 30-minute telephone consultation. Remember that the return on your investment is potentially huge!

"Caroline allowed me to move from a state of frustration and confusion to one of clarity and power. Her coaching and inquisitive approach totally changed my professional mindset for the best. From growing my confidence in my career choices through prompting me to take the right steps to create the life I want career wise, the transformation she guided me through has been colossal. Throughout coaching I felt I was growing wings of self-confidence and creativity and that absolutely felt deeply pleasant. Working with her has undoubtedly been a great life investment." Alex, London
"I was coached by Caroline over a six month period, in my role as headteacher. The sessions really helped me in further articulating my vision, leading my team and developing my staff. Caroline was always professional, enthusiastic and asked both challenging and supportive coaching questions. I do recommend her to any other school leaders." Annie Gammon, Headteacher at Stoke Newington School and Sixth Form
"I found the sessions extremely valuable and have been impressed with Caroline’s ability to explore not only what my goals are but also the precise actions I self-generated to achieve them... I found the ‘personality profiling’ especially useful when trying to address communication issues and concerns I had about the most effective ways of communicating with someone who demonstrates a personality profile that was the polar opposite of my results. This was a ‘light bulb’ moment for me and has definitely helped me recognise techniques that I can use to ensure I am able to achieve a resolution to a particular scenario where a colleague does not appear to have the same motivations.” Matt, West Country
"From the start, Caroline built a great rapport with me and made me feel at ease… Caroline is able to motivate and encourage you through her use of effective questioning. This worked particularly well with me personally as I could see that Caroline was genuinely committed to supporting me to achieve my goals and in return I wanted to discuss my successes at our next sessions, so I was determined to make progress!" Janine, West London
"Caroline is an excellent coach who has provided me with the confidence I needed with my studies. She is very professional and the results I had thanks to her coaching skills have been superb. She has unique coaching skills and a very positive approach. I highly recommend her services." Raquel, Slough
"Working with Caroline was very helpful and enabled me to make the progress I need to achieve. Caroline had a good understanding of what I wanted and got me to think about what I was doing in a realistic and timely manner … She is very easy to talk to about any aspects of my career and personal life." Carol, Chester
"Caroline has helped me realise what I need to do to deal with combining family and career. She has given me confidence to come up with fresh ideas about to how to push forward with projects whilst not impacting on my family and academic commitments." Sandra, Blackheath, London
"The coaching with Caroline Stagg was a challenging and wonderful process... I am still benefiting from it. I learned a lot about setting goals, a process that has never really been part of my life. With Caroline’s help this process is much clearer to me now, so are the obstacles and the ways of dealing with them." Johanna, South London
