Successful people and organizations work from a deeper purpose and longer view. I help entrepreneurs, solo-preneurs, and teams connect with their "why" so they can align what they do with why they do it.
I'M CAROLINE VAN SICKLE, COACH CVS
I AM A PROFESSIONAL COACH & BRAND STRATEGIST.
PURPOSE + PEOPLE = POTENTIAL
Clarify your "why?"
(Brand strategy & culture)
Attract & develop
(Clients and employees)
Align purpose with people (Collaborate better, achieve greater potential)
If a company operates from a greater purpose, it will develop greatness in its people.
Build with love. The people will come.
Your company is an extension of your values, mission, and vision. I help you hone your brand strategy (who you are), so you can attract your people (clients and employees), so you can achieve your goals.
Learning and development are now considered essential investments for organizations and teams to thrive. I offer customized workshops based on the specific needs of the organization. I also help the culture team target areas of development based on individual and team assessments.
Build the people. The loyalty will follow.
INDIVIDUAL & TEAM COACHING
Doing our own inner work is the greatest gift we can give to humankind and it is the only way to truly change the world. "Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself." - RUMI
We cannot change what we cannot see. Personality and team assessments provide insights into what motivates us, what gets in the way and what throws us off course. Assesments bring to light our blind spots so we can tend to subconscious drivers and inhibitors of performance.
"I wouldn't be nearly as effective of a coach without personal experience both in the corporate world and as an entrepreneur."
we'd do better.
My coach used to say, "If we knew better, we'd do better." Most of us don't intentionally make mistakes, wreak havoc, or squelch the light and creativity in our employees and colleagues. Instead, we fail to look up from what we are repeatedly doing to ask the right questions, "What's not working here?", "What is working?", "What can I do better?" and "What am I contributing to both the problem and the solution?"
In our work, first and foremost, we learn that humility and self-love go hand in hand. With a sense of humor and gentleness, we normalize the human experience and cultivate self-mastery individually while contributing to higher-functioning organizations collectively.
HOW I WORK WITH COMPANIES
I coach entrepreneurs and teams using an unconventional yet practical approach to aligning your team with your core business values.
YESTERDAY I WAS CLEVER, SO I WANTED TO CHANGE THE WORLD. TODAY I AM WISE, SO I AM CHANGING MYSELF."
I HELP INDIVIDUALS AND ORGANIZATIONS DEEPEN THEIR AWARENESS & OVERCOME SUBCONSCIOUS DRIVERS THAT INHIBIT THEIR POTENTIAL.
One of my priorities is to help businesses, teams, and individuals understand themselves and their brains through neuroscience, cultural conditioning awareness, motives and core values, and personality assessments. I help my clients interpret how the brain works, how it is programmed, and how the brain and body work together to optimize executive and creative function. I am trained in brainspotting as a modality to remove invisible obstacles and unleash creative and relational potential.
THE BIG PICTURE
We have every opportunity to create the world we want to see. It all starts by changing within, and everything "out there" changes. To change our outer world, we must first change our inner world.
