“I recently took 3 courses with the Elevar Group – Transforming Self-Doubt Into Personal Mastery, Coaching High Performing Teams and Coaching for Emotional and Psychological Safety.
All 3 courses :
– were relevant and well structured
– guided my reflections in a meaningful manner
– provided interaction and sharing amongst participants in a lively and safe space
– were led by Carolyn Thompson with great precision and care”

“I found the Elevar courses quite by accident as I was searching to round out my training for “re-certification” and I sure am glad that I did. The two courses that I took were fabulous….What they gave me:

An in-depth knowledge of the content. Complete with both the concept, the practical application and the student discussion
Carolyn knows her subject and is a master at engaging all of the students to share their experiences, which makes it a much richer experience.
The timing is great….2 hours in three days. I found myself thinking of the subject matter all day and eagerly coming to class the next day.
In some classes I find my mind wondering or feeling bored. NOT the case here, every minute is engaging and filled with new material
It is great value for the money.
I am a seasoned coach of 20 years and these courses inspired me.

All the best,”

“Carol Goldsmith has developed the most down to earth, practical model of NLP principles for coaches, The NLC Coaching Course. Her model is clear and so easy to grasp. The collateral workbook is a great resource. I finally see how I can use these wonderful NLP tools to help clients move from being stuck to succeeding.

Carol is a tremendous teacher and coach. She has developed a beautiful way of presenting the NLP concepts to actually use for myself as well as with clients. She provides lots of examples throughout the course that highlight the concepts and keys to moving foreword. What’s more, Carol effectively models the concepts as she engages the class.

One of the best coaching courses I have taken!”

“Incredible class, awesome instructor, invaluable learning experience. I wish I’d had this course and others from Carol as part of my Coach U training. NLC not only makes the core competencies much clearer, it also gives me the tools to employ the competencies in a much more effective way than anything I’ve learned up to this point.

Carol makes the learning fun, relaxed, humorous….a great environment to soak in the material. I always looked forward to the classes and they went by so fast! Thank you!!!”

“Thank you again for another thoughtful presentation. Your style of presenting is very smooth and includes many clarifying statements that bring simplicity to your ideas, e.g. using alliteration and phrases of/from wisdom. These are not only nice reminders to help us do our work better; they also give new perspectives on life and practice. Another true sign of a great coach!”

“Thank you so very much for today’s Advanced Core Competencies course, The Purpose-Driven Question. In a word, I thought it was AWESOME! Truly. Carol — I so appreciate your wisdom, your skill as a teacher and facilitator, and the clarity and applicability of the content that you delivered. As a result, I left with some very concrete and powerful take-aways that I’m certain will influence my coaching in a direct and positive way. It’s a delight to encounter a course that so emphatically delivers on its promise.”
