Mindset for Leaders

"You are missing out on something special if you have not taken a training class with Karen. She makes training fun and stands by her statement - she helps you turn your learning into action."

Karen was my coach.

“I had Karen as a coach a few years ago. She helped me to see my blind spots and how they were holding me back in my career. I am more confident in myself, able to ask for feedback to make sure new blind spots don’t pop up, and I am able to coach others on my team because she modeled how to do it in an impacting, positive manner. Thank you, Karen, for being my mentor."

Positive Work Environment

Who would have ever thought that Anti-harassment and Anti-discrimination training would be…fun. I learned more in this two-hour interactive session than I ever did sitting through e-Learning sessions. I especially love how she takes real-life scenarios and made us think through what we SHOULD do. It’s made a huge impact in our company.”

Real Colors

"Our entire company went through Real Colors training. To be honest, several of us didn't want to be there. I can't believe how much I would have lost out had I not been there. Karen did a great job engaging us from the start and kept us engaged. That was the fastest four hours and so much fun."
