More impact, less effort
My vision is to amplify leadership impact.
The demands on leadership are ever-increasing. To meet those demands, organisations need more from their leaders, and they need it now! But more often translates into more effort. Longer agendas, more things to do, more meetings, the list goes on!
Leaders end up overburdened, stressed and stuck too far down in the detail. They know they’re not as effective as they could or want to be, yet there’s not enough time to shift the game.
To shift the game, they need to focus on what’s strategic and impactful. To get the effort-to-impact ratio right, leaders need to be productive, motivated and influential. They need to:
- continuously learn so that they can be their best within a fast-paced world
- work smart to capably manage their energy and resilience
- have the time and skills to connect meaningfully with their colleagues to collaborate powerfully

Karen is an incredible and effective professional coach. I saw Karen when I was at a particularly testing nexus of my career. Karen not only helped me survive, she helped me thrive. She was in my corner offering tough love and the backing that I needed to rise above my own limitations. I have since gone on to find my dream job. If you’re ready to be the best version of yourself, you’ll benefit from seeing Karen. I could not recommend anyone more.
Karen is a fantastic coach! Her agility and depth of knowledge of different approaches to leadership is so impressive. Her frank and fearlessness in providing advice and direction is absolutely refreshing!
