Let’s Build Together
As a coach-consultant, I roll up my sleeves and come alongside you. I don’t talk to you. I build with you. Together, we’ll put together a plan that best suits your needs and elevates you to where you really want to be! No more settling.
It’s my opportunity to listen, to get to know you better and see how I can serve you best.
What do you want to see happen next in your organization?
New growth requires new strategies. Small cracks in your day-to-day may not be a concern now, but eventually they turn into canyons and rob you of energy and cash flow.
Making sure your foundation can handle the growth is where I come in.

How can success of coaching and consulting be measured?
Leaders want results. We explore underlying reasons, opinions, and motivations that influence strategic decision making. We analyze tangible information and uncover patterns. Now that we’ve identified the problems, we build a plan and execute it. No time to waste. Efficiency is a high priority. We set incremental goals that lead us to your desired outcome.
What if I’m not struggling in business?
When leaders are on top of their game – we love that! If in the future there’s a shift, we’re here to help.
Most people can agree that there is room for improvement somewhere in their professional lives. Timing is key, and now may not be the right time for you to pursue coaching. I hope you’ll keep us in mind when that time comes.
Is it true that Karen is a golf nut?
Ok, well, maybe not a ‘nut’. Karen is beyond passionate about golf! Everyone should have a hobby – if you don’t have time for one, you should really book that call immediately.
You worked hard to get your company to where it’s at today.

What People Say
After attending Karen’s “INFLUENCE” workshop, my team’s self-awareness on how we interact with each other was transformed. The “INFLUENCE” framework covered delicate topics, inspiring suggestions, and thought-provoking behavioral biases. Highly recommend to leaders desiring to take team performance to the next level!
Only attend if you want to be a transformed YOU. No matter where you are at in your professional and/or personal development, time spent at this Summit will be sure to unleash the power and strength within you.
Karen’s most powerful tool is her authenticity combined with her knowledge, skill and experience building great teams. Her ability to bring people together as a team and engage is awesome, and she does it with such fluidity. She quickly gains trust and establishes credibility, allowing her to be a trusted advisor and team member. Karen’s energy, excitement and purposefulness is transferred to people so effectively.
Karen is a professional communicator and changed the culture in my company. She accomplished things that I could only dream of. Karen brought my far flung retail stores under one roof and one banner. She’s a rare gem.
Karen is a sales whisperer through and through. Her ability to casually disarm our team one by one had everyone engaged and deeply educated in her style of sales at the end of the trainings. She is a repeat coach at our company, for sure.
