Technical Engineering Manager
Carollyn was my trainer for a leadership development program in 2013 – 2014.
She was loved by not only me, but also each and every member in my class for that time. She showed a great combination of Western philosophies and the understanding of Vietnamese working culture that made her very distinguished and understandable for everyone in my class. Another point I found in Carollyn that she was so good at capturing on what me and my colleagues thinking, then she easily asked questions to open our minds and guided us to come to the best solutions of our issues.
I acknowledge Carollyn has gained really respect and admiration from each and every one of us so that the class was always exciting and full of motivation. She was very approachable to everyone, normally Vietnamese people feel shy or unconfident to say what they want to, but that was completely different being in the class with Carollyn, the ones who almost kept silence in meeting already raised up their voice. I encountered some tough talks with her on my topics and I was very stubborn, she was not showing any anger to me but finding ways to help me understand my real problems and guided how to solve it, in a patient way, there was a time it passed half an hour after the class for my talk. It made me feel that she really cared for me as her student and I treasure that!
I can see colleagues of mine showing clear positive changes in their thinking and acting, and I find myself the same after training.
Carollyn has my deep gratitude for the time and I believe she will make other students feel the same way!
Thanks for helping us better leaders.
