Hi, I’m Caroline Gasc. I’m here to help you unlock your potential as a heart-based leader by connecting you with your purpose on deeper and more conscious levels. If you’d like to know how we will accomplish this, you can visit the Kiss Your Edge Mentoring page for executive leaders or Kiss Your Edge Coaching if you’re a professional coach.
In the meantime, I’d like to provide a little bit of background about myself. After all, if we’re going to work together it’s important you feel comfortable and confident with your coach and mentor.
I’m French by nationality and a citizen of the world by heart and history. When I’m not helping my clients navigate change, liberate themselves from an outdated leadership paradigm and fulfill their purpose, I enjoy traveling, spending time at the beach and I love kitesurfing.
Not long ago, I was in a major life and career transition myself.
How did I get through it?
By accepting the light at the end of a very dark and arduous tunnel was me.
I haven’t always been a transformational coach for executive leaders and professional leadership coaches. To read my full, executive profile and review certifications and specific areas of expertise please CLICK HERE.
During the first half of my career, I climbed the ladder of success in the corporate world, reaching the level of Chief Financial Officer at a multinational company in Dubai. In this role I helped take a company that was close to bankruptcy and turned it around to a 90-million-dollar a year business, ultimately overseeing a successful merger with a listed company.
Turning the company around relied on our employees feeling empowered and our executive team fulfilling their purpose. To do this, I needed to align the visions and goals of a very diverse group of executives and employees at two multi-national companies. The challenge of executing this level of leadership was not technical. It required impactful, heart-based leadership.
As we climbed to the top, the key to our success was balancing the relational, psychological and emotional issues of everyone on the team. It takes discipline to lead in these key areas just as it requires courage to learn from challenges and make critical adjustments in the present moment.
Having Reached the Top of the Corporate World, My Next Move…
…Was a Huge Leap of Faith.
After we completed the transaction with a listed company, I realized my heart was guiding me to transition from the corporate world and become a full-time leadership and transition coach. After 18 successful years in international finance, I followed the calling of my heart and embarked on a new career path as a transformational coach for both executive leaders and professional leadership coaches.
This was a huge leap of faith as I was jumping into the great unknown.
Up to that point, I had spent nearly two decades in international finance. I’d also dedicated most of my free time to personal development, uncovering the mysteries of spirituality, all the while honing my business acumen, and then becoming a certified coach.
When I decided to kiss my edge and complete my transition from CFO to a certified professional coach and conscious leadership mentor, everything was in place. Becoming a certified coach felt like a natural step. I’d been working on personal development since 2000 and I was excited about this new chapter in my life. I was also scared to death about how all of this was going to turn out.
Was I as ready as I thought?
Was this the right direction for my career? For my life?
I’d climbed to the edge of my desires and was met by my greatest fears.
This was it. I couldn’t turn back.
Turns out I was ready. I’d followed my inner compass in the right direction. But I had a lot to learn.
After a decade of in-depth research, personal development and thousands of hours of working with a diverse, multi-cultural client list, the Kiss Your Edge Leadership Mentorship program has proven to be the catalyst for conscious-minded corporate leaders and heart-based leadership coaches across the globe to activate change and foster sustainable growth in their life, career and organisations.
Kiss Your Edge is much more than an executive level leadership and mentorship program. It’s both a lifestyle and workstyle. I know, because I’ve personally lived it. Not only have I successfully applied The Three Pillars of Presence, Power & Peace to personal and professional transitions I’ve been through, but I’ve put what I’ve learned to use for a wide array of multi-national organisations and individual clients.
I designed Kiss Your Edge as a premier, executive-level mentorship program for conscious leaders who are ready to break free from the restrictive confines of trying to succeed in a system that leaves you more exhausted, deflated and drained than it does feeling powerful, peaceful and fulfilled.
My job with you is to unlock your potential as a modern-day, heart-based leader by connecting you with your purpose. True power comes not only from the intellectual brain but from Purposeful Action and a Brave Heart. Whether you’re a corporate leader or a leadership coach working with me is your opportunity to be a part of activating change where it matters most; within you.
Consider a recent quote on executive-level decision making from the founder of Amazon.com, Jeff Bezos, who said the following:
To fulfill my job as your coach, we will create a path for you to have the impact you want in service by focusing on what I call The Three Pillars. Consisting of Presence, Power & Peace, they are proven guideposts for heart-based decision making and tapping into the power of your intuition to liberate your potential, awaken your soul, and reinvent yourself professionally and personally.
When we work together, I will hold you accountable to develop your Executive Presence, Unlock Your True Power and be at Peace with the impact you have as a heart-based, conscious leader.
When you and your organisation choose to work with me you will need to be ready to connect to your purpose as a conscious leader, take necessary actions on that purpose to support your true power, and be present in what you want to achieve.
It is with great joy and gratitude, then, that I bring all that I have learned to you and your organisation, which is a rare mix of business, leadership, spiritual, technical and relationship skills that points you in the direction to kiss your edge with Presence, Power & Peace.
If you’re feeling called to work with me, I invite you to fill out the form below and let me know why you believe you’re ready to kiss your next edge and become a heart-based, conscious-minded leader.
