Our company has worked with Karen Ostrov of Konect Consulting since 2002. We initially used Karen to improve communications between the principals to resolve a series of disagreements. After successfully resolving the disagreements and creating a steadily improving climate of communication between the principals, we began using Karen to improve the effectiveness of the management team.
Several of our department managers have excellent technical skills, but limited managerial and leadership experience. Our company depends on effective teamwork to deliver successful building projects to our clients. Karen has provided practical advice and approaches to our managers on how to improve their communication and collaboration skills. Karen’s coaching has improved the effectiveness of our new managers and has resulted in better teamwork by creating an atmosphere of open two-way communication.
Karen has been respectful and sensitive to confidential situations, demonstrated the ability to adjust coaching styles to individual needs, and has shown flexibility in adjusting her schedule to meet the changing demands of our business. I recommend Karen Ostrov as an executive coach for any situation where improved communication and /or managerial effectiveness are needed.
