My company and I decided to take the step in developing my leadership skills. The EU region for our products is in rapid growth. I needed more management and leadership skills in working with the variety of people I encounter across the globe. Karen helped me understand my position in the company in a better way, and coached and gave me good feedback on how I can become a better leader for this US based organization. The challenges of communicating across cultures and time zones can not be underestimated. Karen helped me become more aware of how I come across to people who identify and solve problems from very different perspectives. I come from a more rational, fact based point of view and at this advanced level of responsibility in the EU, I come in daily contact with people from the creative world, like sales and marketing. I have become so much more effective in communicating with these folks, as evidenced by a marked decrease in errors and increase in efficiency. It has made the product development and sales process run more smoothly. I enjoyed working with Karen and recommend her to others in situations like mine.
