Karen's Principal Focus
I willingly admit, it's connecting others to their talents. As a Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach, I've successfully competed all the necessary requirements for certification. I'm also certified as an Executive and Leadership Development Coach and Advanced Life Coach.
Often we need an extra pair of trained eyes to see what comes naturally to us. We're too close to see what is exceptional in us. We think everyone does what we do or thinks how we think. They do not. Knowing how you do best think, feel, and act makes all the difference in how you lead. Knowing how those you lead naturally think, feel, and behave is the difference between a successful organizations and one that exist following the lead of what they think might work.
Dedicated to being a champion of others
I'm not satisfied until I see results and changes in those I partner with. Relationships have a value higher than gold to me. I excel at quickly connecting, ensuring individuals are comfortable in our conversation.
Life for me is on purpose; the details matter. I'm a life-time learner. I can't read enough, research enough, and grow my knowledge around how to generate results using talents and strengths to save time and money, yet doing an outstanding job.
Every life has worth and value, sometimes we just need someone to listen to us and to help us see the best in us. I am talented at helping individuals and teams focus, eliminating the clutter in life and what's tripping them up and keeping them from thriving where it most matters.
Artistic Ability to See the Bright Side of YOU!
My passion, training and experience provide the ability to help you connect the past, present, and future to gain an enriched perspective, knowing your future is going to be awesome! My process involves making life less, but better, focusing on what is important for you now. Connecting you to the truth about you!
The edge I bring is my relentless study of what Gallup calls the 34 talent themes, associated with the CliftonStrengths (formerly StrengthFinder 2.0) assessment. I share this assessment with you through coaching. It provides a language for you to share the details of you in pixels. It brings to light your talents, strengths, vulnerabilities, non-talent areas, and blind spots.
Client's mention time and time again, they love the fact that initially I see them living a bigger life. Within a relatively short time period, they begin to realize I wasn't just imagining the things they would someday be doing. I love being a catalyst for change.
Since, I connected to my talents and have been building strengths, life is brighter, more on purpose, and fulfilling. I believe our unique set of talents are a golden thread running from God's heart to ours. (Reason why they never run out!) Imagine life with a flow, a connection to all that you have been given, to impact and implement the positive changes you want to make happen. The mark you want to leave on the world!
Grateful for those who have influenced me
I have files jam packed with wonderful memories, serving during my time working in high-end retail visual, management, and operations. Nearly 14 years at Lord & Taylor, Macy's and Sak's Fifth Avenue prepared me for this time in life.
I will always love the business of retail, operations, and fashion. Now I have the privilege of helping individuals fashion the real tale of their lives and make life more the way they need it to be now. Assisting others in laying a strong foundation of who they are and creating a better life with purpose is a great fit for me today. Caring through coaching is my purpose and passion. Conversations and listening well is my mission! It's why I do what I do in serving...
