Carol Sachowski is the founder of Storycoaching Inc., supporting clients as they craft and contribute authentic stories of active resilience and hope.
Early on in her career, Nellie McClung’s famous quote: “Nver complain, never explain, get the thing done and let them howl,” was a major motivator for Carol. Learning by throwing herself into challenging and unknown situations, Carol was driven by the need to do well, make things right/fair and support those striving to do the same in their own ways.
Lucky for Carol, she was well guided by several seasoned female mentors who championed her to be true to herself and kind to others while calling out what was questionable and finding practical solutions.
Starting in organizational human resources and moving into business and personal coaching/mentoring, Carol’s clients have consisted of public, private and not for profit business climates, supporting corporates and creatives alike. Believing deeply in the essential development and wellbeing of self for the ultimate betterment and growth of the collective, Carol champions and challenges each client as they define their unique story and strengthen their authentic voice so that their message of substance can be heard amid the noise.
During her 30+ year career, Carol has worked with countless diverse, seasoned and thoughtful professionals committed to creating deep and lasting change for themselves and their organizations. They come to Carol in moments of success and struggle, seeking to design healthier and more effective roadmaps for enjoyable adventures ahead. Carol partners with them to assess where they currently find themselves, where they’d prefer to be and to cultivate strategic approaches and meaningful opportunities that are elegant, resilient and authentic to their personal, team or organization’s setting in getting there.
The McClung quote has stuck with Carol over the years, offering returning clarity and strength in moments of her own life’s celebrations and losses. Appreciating the value of every person’s story in building better tomorrows, Carol volunteers through her professional communities, mentoring young professionals eager to establish their own career identities that are true to themselves.
Located on Vancouver Island, Carol’s suite of services includes a trilogy of core values workbooks, virtual labs and conversation circles with individuals, business teams or social groups. Pets are welcome!
