I sought out an executive coach during a time of uncertainty and possible transition in my career path. Juggling important priorities at home and at work was becoming stressful and I lacked direction. Karen helped me to focus my energy, prioritize my challenges, and explore new options. She encouraged me to think bigger and more creatively than I tend to on my own. Karen helped me understand how I process information and how my approach differs from my colleagues. That understanding has impacted my effectiveness in my current role, and has led me to develop a long-term plan for exploring future career options. I concluded my time working with Karen feeling much happier in my current position and more optimistic about how my career might develop in the future.
