New York

Energy, global power, and diversity mark a thriving cultural and financial hub. Illuminate and ignite your dynamic, talented, industrious international and local teams.


Harmony, responsibility and honor....lead your teams and yourself to greater heights! Synergize your creativity and strengths to improve the whole.

Aloha means ‘breath of life.’ White pearl sand beaches, lush rain soaked valleys guarded by two shield volcanoes, and tall majestic palm trees remind us to savor nature’s gifts. Expand your leadership gifts in a tropical setting.


Leadership involves vision, passion, purpose, drive, communication, energy, and faith. It involves humility and empathy to engage others to follow with continued commitment.


A TEAM is a collection of people who come together with a defined purpose - to envision, create, invent and implement a specific project or to fulfill an explicit purpose.


Executive and Leadership Coaching services include personality and leadership style assessments; a focus on values based goal setting; and the option of individual or small group participation applying an action based, experiential coaching model.



I highly recommend Karen for any leadership role in change management. With her strong communication skills, and business acumen, she would bring excellence to any company she works with.

Deb Hiner Executive Recruiting Consultant at Scout Recruitment Consultants Inc

Karen is the best speaker I have encountered in speaking on motivational behavior, change management, and organizational team building. She gets to the heart of the matter in a way that is non-intrusive and motivational. Her method of interacting with the group makes it fun and challenging.
