Meet Amy Carroll

The Ego Tango

Tell us what’s it all about?

This is a collection of real life stories that I tell in my workshops as a communication coach. Each story demonstrates either an external behavior or an internal mindset which I teach to help people become more effective and productive in their personal and professional relationships.

My hope is that you’ll be able to appreciate their humor and humanity while extracting the gems and applying them to your everyday interactions to achieve better results, experience fewer hassles and have more satisfying relationships.

Quickfire Questions with Amy

They say, if you really want to get to know someone, questions are like keys that can open many doors. Here Amy answers some quickfire questions.

What advice would you give your younger self?

Trust your gut. If you think someone is a bonehead, they probably are!


What were your original career choices? (the ones you never ended up doing!)

When I was a little kid I wanted to be a dress designer and I remember this implied message from my family was "you can't do that, it's too much fun!"

The next career choice I remember was wanting to be a truck driver, because I wanted to travel and see the country. People told me I was too short so I threw that idea out.

I remember in college being completely clueless as to what I wanted to do career wise and wishing my parents would just tell me to be a dentist so I wouldn't have to go through the gruelling process of figuring it out on my own.

When I was in college I studied many different subjects in the hope of finding my passion. From theatre, to hospitality, to advertising.


What’s something you do that makes you happy?

One of my favourite things to do is make other people laugh. Sometimes I'll spend hours thinking of funny scenarios and stories to tell my significant other just to make him laugh.


What qualities inspire you in others?

I'm inspired when people are down to earth, not afraid of looking silly or ridiculous. Also by people who are willing to show their vulnerable side, those who speak up for others, and those who treat others with kindness, even when they may not have earned it.


What's the best piece of advice you've ever been given?

Don't take yourself so seriously!


What's the funniest things you've seen recently?

Funniest thing I've seen recently is this little ballerina unapologetically farting!
Watch here.


If you could meet anyone in the world, who would it be?

It would be Nelson Mandela. His grace, generosity and humanity are awe inspiring.


What do you admire most about human beings?

People being brave, taking risks, not taking them so seriously and giving awesome hugs!


Why do they call you ‘The dancing coach?’

They call me the dancing coach because I just have to move when I hear the music!
It gives me joy and delight to get my groove on to a great tune!
