What others say:
"I was able to work with Karen on a multitude of items, but key areas of learning and development came from understanding the AI (artificial intelligence) of human resources and being able to attach work experiences and skills of my resume to be a better candidate. We also worked on the skills of interviewing via video in order to come across clear and confident in a virtual environment." Z. Maddox, Sales Operations Intern Bentley Motors, Ltd.
"I had always been 'skeptical' about coaching. I coached others as a Human Resource Leader but never engaged in coaching from the coachee perspective.
You, single handedly, completely changed my perception of coaching and its potential value and impact. Asking the difficult (and sometimes provocative) questions, challenging me to think about the pros and cons of specific outcomes, and reminding me that we cannot compartmentalize our personal and professional selves are just a few of my take-aways from our time together. I have successfully taken that experience and crafted the actions below which will take me through Q1 of 2021." John T., Talent Development and HR Consultancy, Stamford, CT
"I engaged Karen as my executive coach twice to help me navigate different career moves and opportunties that I wanted to pursue, and that would get me to the next level in my career. After working with her for a little over a year and half, I have been promoted twice in the space of one year. Karen's extensive knowledge and insight into the unwritten rules of preparing myself for the next level move inthe corporate world have proven to be invaluable to me. In addition, I have found that her high degree of emotional intelligence has been one of my favorite parts of working with her. I find her feedback to me during our coaching sessions to always be clear and concise, and effectively helps me to manage or navigate different situations in my career development. Moreover, her executive career coaching has helped me feel empowered to go after what I want in my career." Ava B., Consumer Goods, Englewood Cliffs, NJ
“Karen provided strategic facilitation for our Board of Directors meeting. It was an extraordinary experience. Karen helped us work on our 3-year plan. We drilled down to focus on current resources and identify needed resources both internally and externally. We are now able to better craft our message and we have developed a framework for growth. This really helped us focus our work with current and new board members.
Even though the facilitation was in October and November, the results are much longer-lasting. We continue to review progress and it was indeed a plan for growth. We were excited to be working with Karen and we look for her continued work with our organization.”
Gloria F., Chairperson IWWWE, Trenton, NJ
"Karen was instrumental in our organization establishing our vision, mission and objectives. She helped us through many discussions and much dialog, keeping us on point and drawing out what was needed to get the results we wanted. She helps me identify my goals and brings clarity to my ideas. Her calm and supportive style keeps me focused to accomplish my goals. She is confident and I use her as a sounding board. I'd like to have more opportunities to take advantage of her critical thinking and creative approach to problem-solving." Connie D., National President, The MI Network, Jacksonville, FL
