I find Karen’s coaching invaluable at this stage in my career – whether it’s enabling me to focus on the desired outcomes from the next big meeting, giving me the tools to execute a powerful presentation or allowing me space to think constructively, I’ve found it all incredibly helpful and feel that I can do more than I ever expected!
What did I gain from the coaching experience?’ – Working with Karen allowed me to explore and understand my leadership style, strengths, weaknesses, and to better map out my ambitions for career growth. This was done in a structured way that allowed time to process and incorporate changes and to develop a clear understanding of my brand and style of leadership over time. Beyond shaping that understanding, I also was able to build and incorporate those changes into my way of working and feel the impact of this understanding in my day to day work.
‘What was it like working with Karen?’ – Karen has an open and casual way of working that allows you to build comfort and trust over time and to flex with your style. She challenges you to think and find through your own process the key elements of your leadership and career ambitions. Working with Karen felt like connecting with a collaborator that gets the best out of you, not just being ‘coached’
Karen is one of the most inspirational people I have had the pleasure to work with. I reported to Karen at Hill & Knowlton and quite simply, she was the reason why I joined the company. Karen has an amazing, positive energy that lights up a room. She is a highly skilled strategist and a very effective operator with an outstanding ability to motivate and build individual and team loyalty. After Karen set up her business, we worked together when I was at Edelman in developing a bespoke leadership training programme for directors in the health practice with excellent delegate feedback and impressive long term results. Highly recommended!
I was invited to deliver a motivational talk to an audience of 400 people, predominantly sales force associates. The topic was ‘performance’. Karen and Heather at KineticFuture were amazing with the insights and support they provided to me on my journey to deliver an effective and positive speech. They encouraged me to bring personal and authentic stories to the fore and to be self-confident in my own abilities which is not something that always comes naturally. I could not have done as well without their support, guidance and encouragement.
Quite simply one of THE best communicators in the business. Her solid business advice and creative solutions to seemingly the most impenetrable challenges, never fails to amaze. But, even more importantly, get results.
Thank you for the very positive experience I have had being coached by you. It was really helpful to see Time to Think Coaching in action. As a raving extrovert I relished the opportunity to talk through my thoughts and I found your questions encouraged me to think both deeper and broader. Thank you so much for this experience and I know that your future coaching clients will really benefit from working with you.
As a colleague, I hugely admired Karen’s client leadership skills, her energy and innate empathy for the client agenda. As a consultant to my business, Karen brings those personal qualities, together with her broad experience of the consulting world, to our talent development agenda…enabling our people to realise their potential.
Working with Karen was a sheer pleasure. Karen was running the workshop for the group of senior managers on Energizing Leadership. Only two brief conversations were enough for Karen to understand our need and prepare a great program. People left the room satisfied, inspired and energized. We hope we will have a chance to work with Karen again.
I just wanted to let you know that I have heard nothing but positive feedback for the session you ran with the delegates. Only today I ran into someone in the lunch queue who was still singing your praises!
I also personally found the feedback incredibly helpful. I completely changed tack on my presentation after our session , resulting in something much more honest and from the gut which meant the emotion behind it when presenting was clearly evident. More importantly, it got us the result we wanted on the day! It’s always a pleasure to work with you – thanks so much.
