Karen helped me get right to heart of my team performance issue quickly and grow through my challenges.  She provided practical tools for me to  progress. I  appreciate the fortnightly management support which keeps me sharp and focussed.      Sarah, Senior Manager 

Karen equips me with the tools to hone my abilities in both personally and professionally.  This is done through a te ao Māori lens and it is empowering to work with a person who ‘just gets it’.  Our kōrero is raw and honest which I find highly valuable.  It’s great to have Karen’s support on your side-line as a personal advisor and motivator on a pathway to success. Ngā mihi ki a koe e te māreikura.    Janine, Regional Manager and Electrical Business Owner  

I look forward to my sessions with Karen.  Her honest, challenging and uplifting approach  has helped me deal with conflict in my team and build my career. Her assistance has helped me to be a better me and taught me to sit comfortably with the awkwardness of my weaknesses as I build upon my strengths.    Kim, Iwi Board member and Public Sector Manager

Trusting Karen was easy because of the love and respect she shows.  The personal and professional growth during my coaching with Karen is undeniable – I have grown into a stronger and more competent employee, colleague, mother and wife during some very challenging times.  Talk time with Karen is honestly refreshing and I love finding new ways forward.   Frances,  Public Sector Business Manager   

I learnt a lot about expressing my feelings and better communication with my partner through my Talk Shop sessions. Karen is encouraging and straight up.   David,  Secondary School Teacher  

The kinds of things I get out of my coaching sessions with Karen are personal stimulation, positivity, tips to influence others, tips to help me, enablers to navigate uncertainty, pathways to ponder and reflect on to find my truth. My wairua is always lifted when by my sessions with Karen, he mana wahine ia.  Sonya,  Principal Advisor, Iwi Board Member and Nanny
