Karen’s thoughtful approach to leadership and personnel development has had a profound impact on both my team and our organization as a whole. I’ve leveraged Karen’s expertise in several capacities, spanning from developing myself as a leader within our organization (focusing on both strengths and weaknesses) to further enabling my teams’ ability to effectively communicate and collaborate in a dynamic environment. While adhering to a proven and effective set of methodologies, Karen also takes a customized approach based on organizational dynamics to ensure the efficacy of her programs. Not only do I view Karen as the most effective organizational consultant that I’ve worked with, she is a trusted advisor as well, whom I’d gladly recommend to anyone.
