What our Newroad clients’ say …
When I was first introduced to the idea of a performance coach, I didn’t think it was for me. But considering the number of professionals I know that work with Caird, I figured it was worth a try. A few short weeks later it was clear to me that this would become the single most profound business initiative of my career. Caird brings new form of accountability and direction to my world. She challenges my actions and is willing to call me out on old, unproductive beliefs. Most importantly, Caird is genuinely motivated to help find that place of purpose and inspiration and ultimately create break-throughs for me, my practice and my family.
My dealings with Caird are extremely beneficial. She knows how to push me out of my comfort zone in a constructive and creative way, the result being that I see things with a much broader perspective. This is an advantage both professionally and personally. In a demanding world in which I am juggling a lot of different responsibilities, I appreciate having that half hour a week with Caird which is all about me.
Balancing personal, family and business relationships and priorities is a struggle for all busy executives. Caird is essential to helping me deal with this on-going challenge and making sure that I keep doing “first things first”. My enjoyment quota has also soared through the roof!
Caird has an amazing ability to help you get to the heart of an issue and help you sort out the most effective and practical ways of addressing it. I have seen direct positive results from working with Caird and I have recommended her to a number of people who now give equally enthusiastic endorsements.
I was going through the most challenging period of my life, faced with having to make major changes on both personal and professional levels. I recognized I needed help to navigate through this time and as fate would have it I came across an article in The Toronto Star about Caird and her company Newroad Coaching. Caird has a great ability to consistently provide a positive, safe environment to guide you through the issues you are facing, while providing you the tools and feedback to get you through them and continue to move you in a forward direction. There was never any judgement during this process. I highly recommend Caird to anyone who is experiencing any challenges in their life and is stuck and can’t move forward.
To be coached by you is an unforgettable experience. You bring keen intelligence, true compassion and heartfelt sensitivity to each coaching session and in that space I move into life changing action, and I am very, very grateful.
I can’t thank Caird enough for helping me with a tough transition in my life. I had been “working” at home for many years raising my children but desperately wanting to find that next thing to devote my energy towards. Caird was absolutely vital in kickstarting my new life and new business.
The key to personal development is finding the right coach. I have worked with Caird for a year now and it has been one of the best investments I’ve ever made. Having been in the business for longer than coaches have been popular I can say with great sincerity that Caird is the best I’ve ever come across.
Sometimes in business you can get bogged down worrying about the wrong things. In short, we lose our focus. Working with Caird, helped me refocus. By doing this I seemed to gain more energy, feel better about work and grow my sales considerably. Caird provided a solid sounding board with some good common sense ideas on communicating and organizing thoughts and ideas. After that we worked on implementation and follow through. All in all, I can honestly say that I looked forward to our weekly chats and the results they produced. Thanks Caird it was a great experience.
Caird brings an energy and enthusiasm to her work that will lift a room and draw the participants into the coaching. Her willingness to be open and transparent will also work to maximize the effectiveness of her coaching time with your people.
