I highly recommend Karl as your next business mentor, coach or facilitator.

by Ian Gower

Having worked with Karl now on several different projects, I can highly recommend him when methodical unbiased problem solving, team development coaching or Collective Agreement Negotiations are required. The experience, methods and tools Karl uses, help break down the issues into a clear and concise picture, without the conflict we have had in the past. The time spent "Setting the Scene" with Karl, will greatly reduce the overall time it would normally take to work through problem solving or negotiation. Once again, I highly recommend Karl as your next business mentor, coach or facilitator.

Karl was a great coach for me.

by Jacqueline Lynne

Karl was a great coach for me. He was able to understand where I was coming from and was able to help me through the difficult moments that I really struggled through. There were times when I couldnt find the answer. Karl was able to read the situation and break the information down until I was able to establish my own solution. He was professional and very effective in his methods as a coach.

Our senior leadership team worked with Karl on individual leadership coaching using the LSI from Human Synergistics, and I found the entire experience to be productive and of good value.

Like a light bulb being switched on!

by Lisa McCarthy

Working through the "Breakthrough Thinking" process with Karl was like a light bulb being switched on. The process combined with Karl's focused, personable and expert coaching allowed me to identify and understand both how I think, and how the conflicts created by my thinking process were holding me back. I left with a breakthrough strategy for myself supported by three personal objectives.

This process is unique, extremely effective and has helped me shift into a new gear as a leader.
