“Karen was amazing to work with! I meet Karen at an event I was sponsoring for local HR professionals; she was the featured speaker for the event. The information Karen shared with the group was very informative and valuable. After the event, I started working with Karen as my executive coach, she worked with me for over two years. I was very impressed with her services and would strongly recommend her to any professional.”
Jerome Jackson NAAHR

“From our first meeting, as we discussed the reasons why I needed help, Karen gave me confidence. Her experience showed through the way she asked questions and the ease of talking to her. From day one, she knew how to dive into the root causes of what made my team successful, how to facilitate our team in a way that made the time go by quickly with energy and results. Karen can facilitate and interact with large crowds, small groups, and any team. Karen has a way of understanding the different personalities in our team and gives us tools for great communication. She developed an immediate trust with team members, and that led to building trust within the leadership team. Karen produces results.”

“Our Leadership Team has had the good fortune of working with Karen Goins over the last several years. Karen is an experienced, thoughtful and highly effective coach and facilitator. Karen listens attentively to our concerns and aspirations. She infuses her work with warmth and humor, but also establishes clear expectations from her clients. Karen is an insightful observer of the behaviors and dynamics that may limit the effectiveness of an individual team member, or the team itself. She skillfully guides us to identify those aspects of our work and communication patterns that may be holding us back, and to adopt and commit to healthier, more effective practices. I wholeheartedly recommend Karen Goins for organizations looking to improve their overall effectiveness and team satisfaction!”
